CORK, Ireland, October 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Alimentary Health Ltd. (Alimentary Health), the development stage specialty biotechnology company, announces that a recent study evaluating the use of probiotics in the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) has found that Bifidobacterium infantis 35624, the Alimentary Health probiotic technology marketed as Bifantis(R), is the only probiotic currently able to demonstrate efficacy for improvement in IBS symptoms.

Alimentary Health is a leader in pioneering the development of safe and effective therapeutics for Gastrointestinal (GI) and other indications. Bifantis has been clinically proven to manage a full range of episodic digestive upsets, including constipation, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, urgency, gas and bloating. Bifantis is only found in the daily probiotic supplement Align(R) which is being marketed by Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) in the U.S. under a current licensing agreement with Alimentary Health.
