Watching briefs: Upper GI problems
Upper GI microbiota play an important role in several gastrointestinal illnesses including Barrettâ€™s oesophagus, gastritis, gastric cancer, IBS and coeliac disease, it is claimed. There is a common misconception that bacteria cannot reside in the stomach due to the low pH, says Probiotics International, manufacturer of Bio-Kult advanced multi-strain formula, â€œbut acid resistant genera such as Lactobacilli and Streptococcus are able to colonise and play an important role inhibiting pathogens, such as H. pyloriâ€.

Research by Pfizer involving 2,000 frequent heartburn sufferers found that nine out of 10 did not feel in control of their heartburn, treating an average of more than four times a day to achieve relief. To provide â€œan easier-to-swallow solutionâ€ for those suffering from oesophageal discomfort caused by acid reflux, Nexium Control is now available in a mini capsule that is over 50 per cent smaller than the standard tablet format, says the company.
