Bausch Health’s latest supplement is tackling gut health. The Laval, Quebec-based company is introducing Envive, a daily probiotic supplement meant to help reduce the severity and frequency of five common gastrointestinal symptoms — diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating and discomfort — while strengthening the gut barrier and digestive system in turn.
"The launch of Envive is another key example of Bausch Health's continued focus on bringing new products to market that help fulfill patients' needs," said Joseph Papa, chairman and CEO of Bausch Health. "Research indicates that approximately 61% of Americans have experienced one or more GI symptoms in the past week. Leveraging our scientific knowledge and legacy of innovation in GI research, we specifically developed and clinically tested Envive to offer consumers a new preservative-free, multi-strain probiotic designed to help relieve five occasional GI symptoms."
The company said that in a four-week study, Envive showed an ability to reduce the severity and frequency of the common GI symptoms at both two and four weeks of daily use, with 85% of participants reporting improved overall GI well-being.
Envive is set to be available at most national retailers, including CVS Pharmacy, Kroger, Rite Aid, Target and Walmart.
