From time to time, I like to feature Philadelphia-based products that aren’t specifically food-related, rather food-adjacent. The product in this feature relates to the digestion of food and gut health.
As someone who suffers from a digestive disorder, I need to be mindful of the foods I eat, but it’s not always easy. So when RMDY (pronounced “remedy”) reached out to tell me about their chewable digestive supplement, my interest was piqued.
Furthermore, the fact that the dietary supplement was born and developed on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania by two Wharton MBA students fascinated me. I was eager to learn more and, of course, try the product for myself which I found helpful the morning after I ate a few trigger foods that caused discomfort.
Philly Grub: Who are the founders of RMDY and what drove them to develop it?
RMDY: RMDY was founded by Kate Kim and Ryan Morgan who met in August of 2018 on their first day as Wharton MBA students. As people with GI issues, they immediately connected over the idea that consumer health solutions were broken – especially in digestive health. They set out to find a solution and teamed up with two leading doctors & medical school professors to design a science-backed solution.
PG: What digestive issues does RMDY address?
RMDY: The tasty chewable is designed to help improve digestive function, prevent bloating and gas, reduce stomach discomfort, and promote nutrient absorption. RMDY’s Daily Digestive Essentials are preventative and proactive.
PG: What are the ingedients in the supplement?
RMDY: The supplement contains digestive enzymes that break up & digest other proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, probiotics (“good bacteria”), prebiotics (food for the probiotics), and a blend of ginger, fennel, and peppermint which helps provide beneficial medicinal effects on digestion and overall health.
