Digestive healthHOWARU Restore, a unique probiotic formulation incorporated into dietary supplements and already sold and marketed in 10 countries, has a well-documented ability to replenish intestinal microbiota during gastrointestinal stresses. DuPont Nutrition & Health now offers an optimized formulation of HOWARU Restore comprised of four key strains from the DuPont-Danisco microbiota portfolio: Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM, Bifidobacterium lactis Bl-04, Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07 and Lactobacillus paracasei Lpc-37. The new formula was tested on 503 patients undergoing antibiotic therapy in a triple-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study. Officials say the HOWARU Restore formulation demonstrated effectiveness in reducing the impact of antibiotic-associated diarrhea in patients under antibiotic therapy. Product applications include plain or flavored yogurts, and fresh-fermented or non-fermented milks. – DuPont Nutrition & Health, www.danisco.com
