NutraCast: Seed on synbiotics for kids and predictions for gut microbiome research
Infancy is commonly recognized as a critical time period for microbiota to colonize the gut. And when it comes to adults, it seems there is a new probiotic launched everyday. But what about those in the middle? What do we know about the gut microbiomes of children? Last year Seed Health came out with a synbiotic for children that is backed by a ton of research. Raja Dhir is the co-founder of Seed, which is a venture-backed microbiome company pioneering the application of bacteria for both human and planetary health. He leads Seed’s R&D, academic collaborations, technology development, clinical trial design, supply chain, and intellectual property strategy.
