Digestive Health Products

Good gut health is key to overall health, especially when it comes to digestion. Improper diet, fastpaced lifestyles, travel, and medicines can all lead to digestive discomfort. That’s why IFF offers clinically-documented strains and pre-formulated blends to help restore our guts to optimal function and efficiency.


HOWARU® Dophilus

HOWARU® Dophilus features Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM®, a human intestine isolate supported by numerous research publications and which was the first Lactobacillus acidophilus strain for which the complete genomic sequence has been obtained. Its clinical studies began in the 1970s and have since had more than 300 research papers published on it, which have confirmed that this bacterium can help maintain a healthy intestinal environment.
