Not all probiotics are created equal and not all probiotics do the same thing. Launching three new products, Irish company Pharmed introduced the MyPro range, delivering the next generation of probiotic interventions, one specifically for new babies, one for people with iron deficiency or for improved iron uptake, such as women of childbearing age, pregnant women, children and adolescents, people with gluten intolerance and gastrointestinal diseases, vegetarians, athletes, elderly people and those using medications containing aspirin.  The final product being launched, resulting from years of clinical research, is a high-strength formulation of varied probiotic strains clinically proven to reach the gut alive and assist in promoting a healthy microbiome and digestive system for all the family.

The Numbers Myth: Single strains are more specific.

The Food Myth: Certain strains have specific health benefits not found in fermented foods.
