Kemin launched its new probiotic, Anaban™, in several European countries following a letter of non-objection from Belgian regulatory authorities allowing the sale of Anaban as a food supplement. Anaban is available in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg and Austria, with regulatory clearance in additional countries expected later this year.
Anaban is a novel, natural Bacillus subtilis probiotic in an easy-to-swallow capsule that maintains optimal gut health by stimulating the body's good micro-organisms, producing natural substances that impair bad micro-organisms, and building the immune system. The active ingredient is Bacillus subtilis PB6, a highly-stable, spore-forming organism.
Many probiotics on the market today cannot withstand the harsh environment of the stomach and its digestive acids. As a result, these probiotics are dead by the time they arrive in the gut or are severely reduced in numbers. Anaban withstands the harsh environment of the stomach, allowing numerous active spores to arrive in the gut where they rapidly colonize and immediately begin doing their work.
Probiotics have become increasingly important as busy lifestyles, increased stress and poor eating habits have led to decreased gastrointestinal health. They are a natural solution for people who suffer from sensitive digestion, frequently feel bloated or experience loose or irregular stools. Probiotics may also be used by individuals taking antibiotics or who may have a change of environment. Although prescription drugs are effective in treating gastrointestinal symptoms, they can only be used for a few days at a time and do not replenish overall gut health. Probiotics work to continually restore the vital balance of micro-organisms and serve as reinforcements when natural, beneficial micro-organisms become weakened or depleted.
Anaban can be taken regularly to maintain a healthy gut, or on occasion to reestablish good bacteria levels in a time of disruption. One capsule per day for adults and children over 3 years of age is recommended to maintain gut health. Anaban can be purchased in the approved countries by visiting www.anaban.com.
