Travelling is an exciting adventure, but it can sometimes throw your digestive system off balance. Multi-strain probiotics contain a variety of live micoorganisms1a that provide health benefits,1b  including enhancing gut health1c while on the move.


Benefits of Multi-Strain Probiotics

The human digestive system is filled with hundreds of different types of tiny organisms living together in balance with one another.2a Most of these tiny organisms are bacteria.2b


The types of bacteria in your gut can be influenced by various factors including what you eat. 2c


Probiotic bacteria are like the good guys in this digestive ecosystem. They move in, take up residence, and help things run smoothly. They can help your digestive system work the way it's supposed to.2d


Probiotics can also lend a hand to your immune system,2e helping immune cells do their job better.


Managing Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Unfamiliar foods, and stress can exacerbate IBS symptoms, which may include abdominal pain and bloating.3a  


Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG may reduce the frequency and severity of abdominal pain in children,4 while probiotic strains like Bifidobacterium lactis and Lactobacillus casei Shirota may help regulate bowel movements and improve stool consistency.5
