Reuteri DSM 17648 is an inactivated (i.e. dead) strain of L. reuteri which is not intended to colonise in the gut. Instead, it is intended to bind to specific gut bacteria, after which, L. Reuteri DSM 17648 and the gut bacteria bound to it will travel through the digestive tract where they will be eliminated through natural bowel movements.
