Digestive Health of Many American Women Not Making the Grade

Survey finds many American women feel they could do more to maintain their digestive health

CINCINNATI & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A recent survey found that most women are interested in knowing more about how their digestive system works, but many feel uncomfortable discussing the issue. The survey, from Prevention, in partnership with Procter & Gamble's Align®, asked American women about their digestive health, exploring topics including digestive balance, familiarity with the digestive system in general, and knowledge of probiotics.

Key findings indicate that struggling to maintain digestive balance is common among women surveyed:

38% of women feel they could do more to maintain their digestive health
Nearly 1 in 5 (17%) say digestive health is constantly on their minds
74% of women are interested in knowing more about how their digestive system works, but almost half surveyed (49%) believe that digestive health is a taboo subject people are uncomfortable discussing

“This survey clearly shows there are many women across the country who struggle to maintain digestive balance, but they're a little embarrassed to talk about it,” said Siobhan O'Connor, Executive Editor of Prevention and “We're pleased to announce that a digestive health center will be launching on next month, designed to provide support and education.”

Ashley Koff, registered dietitian and Align spokesperson, regularly talks about digestive health with her patients and helps them understand the benefits of probiotics—an integral part of helping build and support a healthy digestive system. “Unfortunately, more than half of the women surveyed (53%) do not know much or anything about probiotics,” she notes. “I recommend a probiotic supplement like Align for patients looking to keep their digestive system in sync.*Align contains the natural probiotic strain Bifantis found exclusively in Align which naturally helps fortify the digestive system with healthy bacteria.”
