Probiotics aid in the prevention & cure of various diseases, such as gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, etc., which is why their demand is likely to increase significantly as Over-The-Counter (OTC) drugs. Moreover, increasing health benefits associated with probiotics would enhance the trend of cost-effective, safe, & natural alternatives to drugs globally. The majority of the population worldwide suffers from gastrointestinal diseases, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which can be prevented by using probiotic food products. Various research activities across the globe have been conducted to illustrate the prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases. For instance:

  • In 2018, A National Gastrointestinal (GI) survey was conducted over 71,000 citizens in the US using a mobile app called MyGiHealth to understand GI symptoms in the population. As a result, approximately 71,812 citizens finished the survey, of which around 61% experienced at least one GI symptom in the recent week of study.

Intake of probiotic medical supplement powders, tablets, & capsules helps reduce symptoms of various medical conditions and promote immunity. The continuous mutation in the variants of Covid-19 (Delta, Omicron, etc.) is another crucial aspect likely to infuse their demand as immunity boosters in the coming years. Moreover, probiotic drinks prevent the growth of harmful bacteria inside the digestive tract, which is why the demand for probiotic ingredients has increased significantly in the healthcare sector, and several pharmaceutical companies have introduced various products based on probiotic ingredients. For instance:

  • In 2021, Bausch Health launched ENVIVE, an over-the-counter probiotic supplement for the US market. The product assists in building up gut health and reducing the seriousness & recurrence of five occasional gastrointestinal symptoms, such as diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, and discomfort.
  • The same year, Morinaga Milk launched functional food series to improve memory in older adults. For Japan, in the forthcoming period, the company has planned to launch products for people (in their 60s- 70s) concerned about memory loss. The next target group would be people aged between 50-70 interested in the brain-gut correlation.
  • In 2019, Nestle launched MATERNA Opti-Lac for lactating mothers to lessen the imperil of pain & inflammatory condition in the breast. The company announced to launch the product firstly in the markets of Hong Kong.

However, since most probiotics fall under the food or dietary supplement categories, they must be proven safe & effective for their intended use through clinical trials and approved by the FDA before they get sold. This fact, in turn, is a significant challenge for pharmaceutical companies to launch new products in the market and build consumer trust toward them.
