  • Probiotics for ear and throat health

    Ear and throat infections are a common problem, especially in children. Probiotics can provide support by strengthening the biological barrier against pathogens and by reinforcing the natural microbiota of the upper respiratory tract. Winclove's latest multispecies probiotic formulations are developed to reduce risk of recurrence of ear and throat infections. One of these formulations has a medical device status (approval pending).
