Communicating the benefits of probiotics

BioGaia offers clinically proven and patented probiotic products to consumers all over the world. However, due to European regulatory rules, we are unable to communicate the effects or health benefits of our products. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) regulates all nutrition and health claims, and currently, there are no approved health claims for probiotics.
