    Next Generation Prebiotic Technology

    Next Generation Prebiotic Technology

    11.13.19

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    Evidence has been mounting showing the value of prebiotics in supporting the structure and function of the microbiota, and the concept of synbiosis has been shown by researchers to be effective in creating, restoring and sustaining that beneficial balance.

    The scientists at Deerland have developed a unique prebiotic bacteriophage blend that modulates the microbiota and begins to work within hours after ingestion. Dr. John Deaton will present the findings of a recently published clinical study which shows that the phage cocktail of PreforPro supports gut microbiota proliferation and reduces other biochemical markers, strengthening the body of evidence to make a claim of symbiotic efficacy, and to promote growth of good bacteria.

    Main Topics:

    • The evolving market for prebiotics and the innovative mechanisms of action beyond traditional fibers and starches;
    • Clinical results demonstrating how a bacteriophage cocktail modulates the microbiome without disrupting global microbiota, and the systemic effects that result when beneficial bacterial species are able to proliferate;
    • Clinical findings of systemic benefits that go beyond the gut.

    NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

    This webinar will introduce the Clean Label Alliance, explain why it was formed and how it is supporting the industry as needs and desires change.

    As sports nutrition goes mainstream, consumers are taking charge of their health and physical fitness. Common goals include improving performance, losing weight, and gaining muscle mass.
