The affects of stress on the digestive system are well known. TummyTouch food- biotic is effective when used to relieve and/or prevent the affects of stress. It can neutralize an acid condition in the GI tract and significantly retard the growth and development of many pathogenic microorganisms which can readily overgrow in conditions of stress and upset. Can alleviate symptoms of severe gas and bloating and diarrhea that often accompany stressful circumstances. Chronic emotional stress is best addressed through other means which first work to identify the source and contributing factors to the condition of suffering stress. We do not recommend using this product to counteract on going emotional stress without working to correct the causative conditions.
