L. reuteri significantly reduced crying time by 50% in as little as one week
L. reuteri reduced crying time from >6 hours to ~1.5 hours/day in as little as one week
Study design: Randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study of exclusively breastfed, colicky infants. Infants were randomly assigned to receive 1x108 CFU/day of L. reuteri or placebo. The objective of this study was to test the efficacy of L. reuteri on colic as measured by crying. In addition, the intestinal microflora was analyzed to determine the effect of the probiotic on selected intestinal microbiota (E.coli, Clostridium butyricum, Lactobacillus, and Bifidobacterium).
L. reuteri reduces frequency of spit-ups by 50% in as little as 2 weeks
Study design: 40 breastfed full-term infants were randomly, double-blind assigned to receive orally L. reuteri DSM 17983, 5 drops/daily (1x108 CFU), for 4 weeks (n=20) or an identical placebo (control, n=20), starting before third day of life. Growth parameters and gastrointestinal diseases were monitored in those 1 month old infants. Parents registered daily numbers of regurgitations, as well as crying minutes, stool frequency and consistency, and adverse events.
