The understanding of the human microbiome is rapidly expanding.  As a consequence, our knowledge of the beneficial effects of probiotics is also expanding. The beneficial attributes of probiotics have been linked to:

  • Improved digestive health
  • Improved skin health
  • Improved immune health
  • Improved oral health
  • Improved cardiovascular health

As the science of probiotics continues to evolve through programs such as the National Institutes of Health Human Microbiome project and related academic research, there may additional benefits of probiotics that come to the forefront.

Importantly, LIVE probiotics appear to offer the most benefits to consumers. Maintaining live and viable probiotics is clearly of significant importance to consumers….thus shelf stability, stability under adverse environmental conditions and even gastric stability are required to deliver effective doses of probiotics to the human GI tract. ABN technology has been proven to enhance stability and delivery of numerous probiotics.
