Nestlé Health Science has agreed to acquire the business of IM HealthScience (IMH) which includes the brands IBgard, FDgard, Fiber Choice and REMfresh.
IBgard and FDgard offer products that help the dietary management of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and FD (Functional Dyspepsia), respectively.
Greg Behar, CEO of Nestlé Health Science, commented, "The IMH products offer proven and trusted solutions for dietary management of specific digestive problems as well as a separate solution for regulating sleep.
“IMH's dedication to developing products to address overall health and wellness by bringing cutting-edge life science and world-class research fits perfectly with our mission of empowering healthier lives through nutrition."
In 2017, IMH acquired Fiber Choice, a brand that manufactures a range of prebiotic fibres.
REMfresh is a continuous release-and-absorption melatonin (CRA-melatonin) supplement that aids sleep.
Nestlé Health Science is a global leader in the field of nutritional science.
