A probiotic OTC food supplement aimed at easing gastrointestinal issues has won two awards in Ireland.

Alimentary Health’s product Alflorex won the Irish Pharmacy Product of the year for 2015 after only 12 months in the market.

It also was awarded the inaugural US-Ireland Research Innovation gong for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) working with US multinationals.

Alimentary previously worked with Procter & Gamble to launch a US-Canadian version of Alflorex called Align. In that deal the Irish firm licenses its patented strain, B. infantis​ 35624 to P&G.

CEO Barry Kiely told us Alflorex was being launched in other European countries this year.
