There is still time to register for next week’s FREE webinar exploring how microbiome modulation may improve sleep to create novel opportunities in the booming natural sleep aid category.

The scientific literature shows that partial sleep deprivation may change the microbiota, while jet lag and shift work can also produce dysbiosis, which in turn can promote obesity and glucose intolerance. So, can we use probiotics, prebiotics and other microbiome modulators to improve sleep?

What are the links between the microbiota, the microbiome and our circadian rhythms? How is this being studied? Where are the key knowledge gaps? What are the mechanisms? Are there intervention studies showing how prebiotics or probiotics may improve sleep?

An upcoming FREE webinar hosted by NutraIngredients-USA will explore these questions and more.

The webinar will take place on Thursday, December 9 at 12pm Eastern/ 9am Pacific, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask a burning question about this topic in advance by submitting the question when they register.
