Dr. Gregor Reid is the Director of the Canadian Research and Development Centre for Probiotics and Professor of Microbiology & Immunology, and Surgery at the University of Western Ontario. He is also currently serving as the President of the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics.


Dr. Gregor Reid, along with his colleague at UREX Biotech, Dr. Andrew Bruce, have been investigating the use of probiotic bacteria to address women's health issues for over twenty years. In the 1980's, their discovery of two Lactobacillus strains, specifically L. rhamnosus GR-1™ and L. reuteri RC-14®, has since led to over 20 published clinical trials and over 200 peer-reviewed publications that have documented the various beneficial effects of these two probiotic strains when taken as an oral dietary supplement.   The health benefits include improved vaginal and urinary tract health, as well as restoration of a normal vaginal microflora profile in women who are experiencing bacterial vaginosis.
