We ran three-single arm observational studies, which means that we sent participants unbranded products and asked that they take them after a specific trigger. Once they experienced the trigger, they took the product and recorded how their body coped. These studies are foundational and investigative research, which establish a baseline for our products’ performance. The next step for further investment would be to do double blind placebo-controlled studies.

Age of Participants

20 - 65+

We ran a single-arm observational study on Upset Stomach Relief. Participants opted in who experience occasional upset stomach and met the predefined criteria. They were sent our product (unbranded) and asked to take it after a specific trigger. They recorded how their body coped at different time intervals. These studies are foundational and investigative research, which establish a baseline for product performance. The next step for further investment would be double-blind placebo-controlled studies.
