Wellements™ Introduces First-to-Market Probiotic Gripe Water

New Probiotic Gripe Water Promotes Digestive and Immune Health in

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the many newborns who lack healthy gut bacteria, Wellements™
Probiotic Gripe Water may be the answer. Wellements, a leader in
producing safe and preservative-free baby products made with simple,
natural ingredients, today announced the introduction of Probiotic Gripe
Water, the only gripe water on shelves that contains probiotics.

Parents today are very familiar with the long-term health advantages of
starting probiotics early in life, and are searching for safe products
for their infants and toddlers. This parental demand prompted
Wellements’ latest innovation that integrates probiotics with its
time-tested gripe water remedy. Available nationwide, the new
USDA-certified organic Wellements Probiotic Gripe Water formula helps to
ease stomach discomfort often associated with gas, colic, fussiness and
hiccups while supplying an abundance of friendly bacteria critical for
healthy digestive and immune systems. In fact, recent studies show that
babies given probiotics have less stomach discomfort and shorter crying
spells.1 Experts also suggest long-term probiotic use can
provide asthma, allergy2 and eczema relief.3

“We wanted to create a product that would not only bring the benefits of
probiotics to our tiniest customers but still serve the needs of parents
during those early months when babies can be extremely fussy. With
Probiotic Gripe Water, parents get double the benefit,” said Keyvan
Taheri, Wellements president and founder.

Pediatrician-recommended, Wellements Probiotic Gripe Water only contains
ingredients of the highest safety standards which are rigorously tested
and USDA-certified organic. It is also free from preservatives, alcohol,
parabens, gluten, dairy, soy and artificial ingredients. Wellements
chose the probiotic strain LactoSpore™ for use in its gripe water based
on the strain’s history of safety, stability and effectiveness with

“Wellements Probiotic Gripe Water is organic and easy and safe to
administer to newborns starting as early as two weeks,” says Katie
Ferraro, registered dietitian nutritionist, and owner of Ingrain
. “As a mom of a 2-year-old and 6-month-old quadruplets, I’m
always on the hunt for safe, effective products to get me through the
day – and night.”

Wellements Probiotic Gripe Water joins a portfolio of safe and natural
baby remedies including Organic Gripe Water, Baby Tooth Oil and Organic
Baby Move. Wellements remedy line is designed to make parents’ lives
less stressful and infants and toddlers healthier and happier.

Available nationally at Walgreens, Wellements Probiotic Gripe Water is
also available online at Amazon.com with a suggested retail price of
$18.99. Designed for everyday use, Probiotic Gripe Water is a more
cost-effective and efficient solution compared to other probiotic and
