Going to Mexico? Did you just eat something that tasted less than "fresh"?

Did one of your kids just bring home a new stomach bug? Feeling a little off?

Reuteri is one of the most powerful strains of probiotics out there. Seriously, it should wear a cape. It is able to leap bad bacteria in a single bound and nip stomach upset right in its ugly bud. It has saved us many, many times from barfing the night away.


Reuteri is found in the healthy gut of all mammals, but not in all people. This is an interesting fact because animals aren’t afflicted by the same stomach issues we are–they have stronger guts. It should be found in all people, but with today’s diets of processed foods and extra sugars, we just don’t have it like we should. The good news is that you can find it at any health food store.

Research has shown that Reuteri has broad spectrum antibacterial and antiviral properties – meaning that it fights off bad bacteria and viruses in our intestinal system and improves our immune system.

A personal success story: On a recent trip to Mexico (home of Montezuma’s Revenge), we took Reuteri two times a day. We ate what everyone else ate, but we were the only ones who didn’t end up throwing up by the end of the trip. We’ve taken it when we feel our stomach starting to rebel, and our stomachs calmed. We’ve even taken it after a stomach bug has invaded us and it stopped it in its tracks. This stuff is pure gold!

Your immune system begins in your intestines. A healthy gut will lead to a healthy body.

When buying Reuteri, make sure you get it from the refrigerated section. These are LIVE organisms and they need to be refrigerated to maintain full potency. If you feel like you’ve eaten something not-quite-right, or you notice your gut rumbling or nausea setting in, take a capsule ASAP. Taken daily, Reuteri can prevent these nasty episodes.
