Pendulum Therapeutics, the makers behind a probiotic that helps the body process fiber, is getting personal. They recently conducted a survey called, ‘The State of Poop in America Today.’

Kristin Neusel, lead dietician at Pendulum, discussed some of the survey’s findings​ and what they mean for probiotics.

“A lot of people don't know, but as dietitians we talk a lot about poop with all of our customers and we really wanted to normalize the whole poop discussion because poop is such an indicator of your health and wellbeing, so that is what the main objective of this study was, to kind of normalize poop discussion and we found a lot of interesting things from participants,”​ said the self-proclaimed ‘undercover poop doctor.’ 

One of the key findings? "More than two-thirds of our respondents (68%) said they would gladly 'commit to eating only healthy foods with more fiber' if it meant a life of regular bowel movements, but they don't know where to begin,"​ explained Neusel. 

Additionally, over half of those surveyed said they wish they knew more about their bowel habits and what they mean. 

“There are tons of probiotics out there, so it’s really about determining which the right one is best for you. Certain probiotics help with diarrhea and on the other end of the spectrum certain probiotics help with things like constipation. So finding the right probiotics can really help with your gut health, which is a really solid indicator of your overall health.”
