Beat the bloat
If you suffer from bloating or tummy discomfort, probiotics can help, but did you know that not all yoghurts contain probiotics?
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.
NOT ALL YOGHURTS ARE THE SAME

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. In addition, not all probiotic yoghurts have proven digestive benefits, so it’s important to check the label to choose the right one. Activia® Probiotic Yoghurt, with the exclusive Bifidus Actiregularis, has been proven to help improve digestive comfort.**
