This study is aiming to see if a new food supplement can benefit digestive health in adults who experience mild-moderate digestive issues/discomfort.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for healthy adults aged 18-45 years old who report mild to moderate digestive issues/discomfort.
If you decide to take part, in brief, you will be asked to fill out a series of web-based questionnaires, and different measures will be taken at certain time points throughout the study which lasts for a total of 16 weeks, and you will give a number of stool samples (done at your home using a home fecal collection kit that is provided for you). There will be a total of 5 study visits.
