The Opportunity of the Microbiome

The Opportunity of the Microbiome

From protecting athletes from respiratory infections to potentially boosting performance, endurance and recovery, modulation of the microbiome in active consumers using probiotics and prebiotics is a huge opportunity. We also know that the microbiota of athletes is different to sedentary people, so companies are beginning to mine those elite micro-biomes for potential beneficial strains.

In this broadcast, NutraIngredients-USA will talk to the scientists and the key brands at the forefront of this trend to understand where things currently stand, where the knowledge gaps are, and what comes next.
