Probiotics have been part of our diet since eons. With emerging research work, it has been acknowledged that the gut microflora differs depending on the mode of delivery and the subsequent nutrition. These microbes play an important role in modulating the body events towards health or disease. The role of probiotics in modifying gastrointestinal disorders has long been contemplated. Several studies have utilized varied probiotics that have shown variable results. Some recent studies have investigated the role of Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938, the daughter strain of L. reuteri ATCC 55730 in controlling the symptoms of infantile colic. Results have shown improvement with reduced periods of crying throughout the treatment period with significant reduction by day 21 of the course.
