Today’s hectic lifestyle is increasingly linked to digestive health issues. Probiotics have been shown to help maintain a healthy intestinal microbial composition, positively influencing digestive health. As the market continues to soar, probiotics are appearing in innovative new products around the globe. Numerous external influences including stress, travel, illness and antibiotic use can disrupt the intestinal microbiota, potentially leading to diarrhea and discomfort. These and other functional gastrointestinal symptoms—such as mild constipation and bloating—are potentially mitigated by administration of properly selected probiotic bacteria. With more than half of the population reporting at least one of these symptoms, the quest for digestive health solutions is poised to continue. In this session, we will present global digestive health market trends, as well as new clinical study data supporting the effect of probiotics on key measures of digestive health.
