Mostly we take digestive function for granted and sometimes your system just cannot cope and even the healthiest of us is likely to suffer from diarrhoea.

Travellers’ diarrhoea, caused by contaminated food or water is a frequent bane for travelers – and up to 10 percent of people who get diarrhoea while travelling end up with persistent diarrhoea3. In some cases, diarrhoea can lead to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which is more chronic and difficult to treat3. One can supplement with probiotics to help restore the balance of natural flora in these conditions, or when these conditions may be pre-empted.
That's why a probiotic supplement is such a great idea: probiotics help restore the natural flora – the "good" bacteria – in our intestines, bringing our bodies back into balance, and freeing us to get on with our lives without embarrassment and intestinal discomfort.
When tummies are upset, it's often a symptom that the balance of our natural flora has been disrupted, and probiotics may help to settle things.
GastroChoice™ is a convenient once-a-day probiotic, which contains a high concentration of probiotics (25,5 billion CFUs* at the time of manufacture).
