Survey: Most women concerned about digestive health, but half consider it a taboo subject
CINCINNATI — According to a recent Prevention survey, 74% of women are interested in knowing more about how their digestive system works, but almost half surveyed believe that digestive health is a taboo subject people are uncomfortable discussing.
“This survey clearly shows there are many women across the country who struggle to maintain digestive balance, but they’re a little embarrassed to talk about it,” stated Siobhan O’Connor, executive editor of Prevention and Prevention.com.
The survey, conducted in partnership with Procter & Gamble’s Align, also found that 38% of women feel they could do more to maintain their digestive health and nearly 1-in-5 (17%) say digestive health is constantly on their minds.
“Unfortunately, more than half of the women surveyed (53%) do not know much or anything about probiotics,” noted Ashley Koff, registered dietician and Align spokesperson, suggesting there is an education opportunity to help raise awareness around probiotic use to maintain digestive health.
