Does your waist­band dig into your belly? Do you feel slug­gish and moody? Or does your tummy bloat­ing make it hard to en­joy meals? Well, you’re not alone. 90 per cent* of Aus­tralian women suf­fer di­ges­tive dis­com­fort, which may be caused by stress, their diet or life­style. Help min­imise bloat­ing with good di­ges­tive health. Foods rich in pro­bi­otics, such as pro­bi­otic yo­ghurt, can help ease the dis­com­fort.

All yo­ghurts con­tain live cul­tures – which trans­form milk into yo­ghurt – but not all of them con­tain pro­bi­otics, which are the good bac­te­ria that can pro­vide di­ges­tive health ben­e­fits.
