About Alimentary Health

Alimentary Health (AH) is focused on developing clinically supported probiotic healthcare and nutritional products that health professionals can believe in.

AH is an international business centred on targeting indications and exploiting applications arising using its core probiotic strains and derivatives.



In 1999, a pioneering group of leading academics and medical professionals from the Departments of Microbiology, Medicine and Food Science at University College Cork came together to start a company that would make a real impact in delivering the therapeutic promise of probiotics.

From an initial vision in digestive health, their belief in the potential of probiotics quickly grew to other areas where inflammation plays a primary role such as obesity, metabolic syndrome and cognitive function.
