Dear Debbie

Thank you for your query regarding probiotics. Despite having no large intestine, your husband may benefit from taking a probiotic that colonises (lives in) the upper gastrointestinal tract and small intestines.

I would recommend Reuterina (Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis) as a good option, as it is very stable, and survives and colonises throughout the gastrointestinal tract, including the stomach and small intestines.
