Probiotics help reduce gastric discomfort in adults

Many people experience gut discomfort after eating, but medical treatments can be ineffective and inconvenient.

In this study, 100 healthy Japanese adults took a placebo or a daily dose of bifidobacterium in 100 ml of fermented milk. After four weeks, compared to placebo, the probiotics group reported greater relief in overall gut discomfort after eating, especially in the upper abdominal (epigastric) area of the gut. The probiotics group also reported less diarrhea and flatulence.

Commenting on the results, doctors said that consuming bifidobacterium daily helps relieve gastro-intestinal discomfort after a meal and reduces upper gastric pain in adults, safely and without side effects.
