Lactobacillus Reuteri – Sources

L. Reuteri is very low in all Chronic Fatigue patients.  L. Reuteri is one of very few bacteria that produces B12 (which is almost always low in CFSers). Until a few years ago, BioGaia AB in Sweden, was the dominant providers. Today there are more varieties and thus more strains.

Today, there are more sources (ordered by my opinion). If you know of others (no more than 3 probiotics in a mixture), please email or comment.
