Digestive Health

Digestive Health

Science related to the gut microbiome indicates the digestive tract has far-reaching impacts beyond the gut, potentially affecting immune health, mood, weight management, skin conditions and more. Digestive health is one of the fastest-growing condition-specific categories, reaching US$2.6 billion in 2016 with 13.5 percent growth. Although probiotics captured almost two-thirds of the market share, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, botanicals and other ingredients are gaining in popularity. Products combining approaches, such as a synbiotic (prebiotic/probiotic blend) are also on the rise.
