The Universal Probiotic, The Science Behind L. reuteri

The Universal Probiotic, The Science Behind L. reuteri

Lactobacillus reuteri or L. reuteri is one of the most well studied strains of probiotics. It was named after Gerhard Reuter, a German microbiologist who spent most of his career attempting to understand the human intestinal microbiota with a focus on lactobacilli and bifidobacteria.¹


L. reuteri is "universal" because it is naturally found in the intestines of humans, as well as a diverse number of animals such as sheep, chickens, rodents, and pigs. It is one of the most ubiquitous strains of the mammalian gut microbiota, which suggests its importance in maintaining healthy digestive function.

Although L. reuteri is naturally found in humans, it is not present in all individuals. If you suffer from certain digestive problems chronically like constipation and diarrhea, this may be an indicator you are lacking L. reuteri in your gut microbiome.²

Taking Doctor's Biome on a daily basis can help the "good bacteria," like L. reuteri take over the gut and help normalize digestion.

L. reuteri is well-known for its ability to deter the activity of pathogenic bacteria, yeasts, and other microorganisms. As a result, much of the research on reuteri probiotic strains focuses on its use in gastrointestinal and urogenital conditions


Doctor's Biome contains L. reuteri, along with 14 other patented, scientifically backed strains of probiotics. We suggest taking Doctor's Biome on an empty stomach or at least 30-60 minutes before a meal for optimal health boosting results.
