Lumina Search bar

You’ll then be taken through to our main search tool, which allows you to filter by type of report, ingredients, health benefits, market and timeframe. For example, let’s say you wanted to find reports and studies on the probiotics species Lactobacillus rhamnosus in relation to the treatment of Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). You would simply click on the “Ingredients” filter, expand the “Probiotics” drop down and scroll to the “Lactobacillus” tick box.

At this point I could select this to search for all Lactobacillus strains, but as I want a specific strain I expand the “Lactobacillus” item and select Lactobacillus rhamnosus, then click “Apply”.

To further filter reports and studies to only those concerning IBS, you would expand the  “Digestion” item from the Health Benefit filter then select “Irritable Bowel Syndrome” and click “Apply”.

This feature can help you locate the specific content you need and save you a lot of time and scrolling.

2. Save a study or report to a myLumina project book to read later

This can be done in a number of ways. In the search results above you can see the “Add to myLumina” button on the right-hand side of each of the reports.


If you have a pre-existing project book, you can easily add the report to it by selecting the name of the project in the “Choose myLumina project” drop down. Or you can create a new project by typing a title and select “add”. You will then be able to select it from the drop down.


You can opt to review your project now, or you can always access your myLumina projects from the “My account” menu on the top right of the screen at anytime.
