The gastrointestinal microbiota – i.e., the bacteria living in our intestines – constitutes the largest part of the human microbiome. The bacterial balance in our gastrointestinal tract is important for ensuring proper digestion and general wellbeing.
Common gastrointestinal discomforts
We want to have a well-functioning bowel characterized by regular bowel movements, normal transit time and stool consistency. However, sometimes the balance is disrupted due to e.g., diet, antibiotics or foreign bacteria, resulting in a variety of discomforts, ranging from slow bowel function with lumpy and hard stools, to too fast digestion with frequent loose and watery stools, not to mention bloating or passing of gas.
We offer probiotics that may help support or restore the gastrointestinal microbiota:
- Everyday intestinal balance - surveys show that 15-20% of consumers are concerned about their digestive wellbeing1.
- Antibiotic-associated digestive discomfort – antibiotics may disrupt the balance between the good and bad bacteria inside and cause various degrees of soft stools.
- Upset stomach – loose stools and frequent bowel movements can occur among infants and children because their gastrointestinal microbiota is still developing. Travelers are also prone to experiencing an upset stomach caused by either a change in diet or exposure to harmful microorganisms.
- Intestinal irregularities – infrequent bowel movements and resulting discomfort is a widespread problem.
