More Details

Probiotics are beneficial to our health in many ways, but after processing and storage, how many cells are still living?

 

We select an aerospace material, MYCO, which is heat- and pressure-resistant, to develop probiotics micro-capsules and artificial spores,to gradually increase probiotics survival rate under high temperature and acidic environment.

 

Our first generation product, can significantly increase the percentage of Akkermansia in gut, hence helping the body to loose weight and reduce obesity. Akkermansia creates a natural tendency for the body to stay fit instead of gaining weight.

 

In the future, we will use technologies such as precision cell regulation and induced spore formation, to develop probiotics micro-capsules and artificial spores.

 

These technologies could protect probiotics of different species, making them more resistant and stay longer in gut,and be applied in more scenarios and products.
