Conducted in 2022, the six-week clinical trial is designed to further validate findings from the brands’ first consumer pilot study, which tested the Nutiani HN001™ strain with 52 Floré customers to determine if there were any significant improvements in mental wellness and happiness.

After 60 days of consuming a probiotic formulation and rating their psychological well-being on the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire, participants’ mean happiness score increased.


The difference between the data was statistically significant, showing that participants felt happier after taking the probiotics.


We are proud to work on developing the next generation of probiotics, all while discovering new functionalities and health benefits.

Building on existing research that connects gut health to mood enhancement, the objective of this study is to further substantiate the theory that maintaining gastrointestinal health can significantly influence an individual's overall sense of happiness. Another goal is to demonstrate that probiotics' benefits are not just for clinical use, but can also help in everyday life. This research is particularly relevant in today's context, where mental wellbeing is being increasingly prioritised.


Growing Importance of Mental Wellbeing

According to the 2024 World Happiness Report, negative emotions are more frequent now than in 2006-2010 everywhere except in East Asia and in Europe. 


Furthermore, a striking 90% of consumers consider mental health and wellbeing as important, as per the Nutiani Ipsos Consumer Health & Nutrition Index 2023.

Given the significant findings and the promising realm of probiotics, Dr. Fuad’s talk at the 12th Microbiome & Probiotics R&D and Business Collaboration Forum on April 23 (3:05pm) is highly recommended for those interested in gaining proprietary insights into consumers’ mindset towards mental wellbeing. Stay tuned and watch this space as we cover the key insights during the event in the upcoming weeks.
