Mounting evidence of the role probiotics play in immune health is spurring rising consumer interest in products that boost the body's defenses against pathogens. DuPont, a leader in the science of probi- otics, has responded to the trend by developing and validating the probiotic strain HOWARU ® Bl-04 ® , the Doctor Preferred Probiotic Strain for Respiratory Health (Based on an IQVIA ProVoice ® survey of Primary Care Physicians who preferred B. lactis Bl-04 for Respiratory Health after review of select clinical studies; December 2018).

Last year, XIL Consulting launched a radical solution to address these gaps: XIL Impact. XIL Impact is a SaaS platform that offers clients access to their own, real-time data, complete with tools, analysis, insights and management dashboards.

While other hydration brands focus on flavored carbon- ated water or portable water bottles as options to sweetened soda consumption, Prodyne offers health-minded consumers stylish water pitchers, bottles and jars for home use that fea- ture a filtering core that can be filled with any array of fresh fruits and herbs for improving the flavor of tap water.
