Older adults are five times more likely to develop digestive health problems, especially constipation.
50% of older adults report their quality of life is directly impacted by constipation and other gut issues*.
There is strong scientific evidence which shows that an imbalanced microbiome as a result of aging is a major cause of bloating, constipation and other digestive health problems.
Studies show regular (daily) consumption of Lactobacillus can reduce symptoms such as abdominal discomfort, abdominal distention, bloating, and gastric pain.*
When study participants ingested Lactobacillus species;
- Bloating was no longer present in 89% of participants.*
~ Decreases and relieves constipation.*
~ Relieves bloating and abdominal distention.*
~ Maintains and supports digestive system health.*
~ Enhance healthy digestive system flora.*
biomiq digestive contains live and active forms of two scientifically-validated Lactobacillus species.
The concentration of our formulation is not just made-up numbers! Too few organisms are likely to be non-efficacious, and too many could make symptoms worse!
Instead, our formulation is made at specific doses that are scientifically supported in peer-reviewed studies.
