The first 1000 days of life lays the foundation for gut health
‘A good beginning is half the battle.’ The first 1,000 days of a child’s life, from conception to age two, have lifelong effects on their health and immunity.
Gut Bifidobacterium decrease with age: from infancy to elderly
A balanced gut microbiome has a significant impact on immunity, metabolism, and trophic function. When our gut health loses its equilibrium and dysbiosis occurs, harmful bacteria can thrive, increasing the risk of developing a range of diseases. Among the vast gut bacterial community are Bifidobacterium spp., a beneficial bacteria that regulate the intestinal immunity and play a significant role in the protection of the intestinal barrier.
How might the gut dysbiosis affect insulin resistance in diabetes?
When people speak of the most common chronic illness in Singapore, diabetes always ranks among the top five. It is one of a number of chronic metabolic diseases that can do serious damage to the body. With over 400,000 Singaporeans living with the disease, the total number of sufferers is expected to rise to one million by 2050. Shockingly, about one third of diabetics are unaware that they have it, according to the Ministry of Health (MOH). The pathogenesis of diabetes is unclear, but recent studies have suggested a link between gut microbiome dysbiosis and insulin resistance in diabetes.
G-NiiB Immunity+ Formula SIM01 shows clinical benefits in COVID-19 patients
Hong Kong's fifth Covid-19 wave peaked in early March. With more than 10,000 daily cases have been reported, the fifth wave of the epidemic has accumulated more than 700,000 positive test cases and 4,000 patients have died.
What is the difference? Prebiotics, Probiotics, Synbiotics, Postbiotics
There are all kinds of gut health products on the market, including "Probiotics", "Prebiotics", "Synbiotics" and "Postbiotics", all of which claim to improve immune function. What are they?
G-NiiB Immunity Plus contains precious live bacteria - B. adolescentis
Gut microbiota modulate our immunity and disease severity of COVID-19, as well as vaccine efficacy. The unique microbiome precision formula in G-Niib ‘Immunity Plus’, developed by the Faculty of Medicine at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CU Medicine), contains the optimal ratio of 3+3 live beneficial bacteria. Its main ingredient ‘Bifidobacterium adolescentis’ is the most precious of live bacteria which aids antibody level regulation and enhances immunity.
Bifidobacteria Adolescentis - Power Up Your Immunity
The human gut microbiota enhances its host’s resistance to enteric pathogens via colonisation resistance. A healthy human intestine contains trillions of commensal bacteria. Chief among them is “Bifidobacterium adolescentis”, a major contributing factor in microbial balance, enhancement of gut barrier integrity and immuno-enhancement of the intestinal tract, and is recognized as the most precious species of Bifidobacterium.
Probiotic Supplements: Does Dosage Forms Matter?
Probiotic supplements can contain billions of live microorganisms that may potentially confer several health benefits, including protection against pathogenic microorganisms, inflammation, diabetes etc.
How to nurture your healthy gut bacteria – these are the solutions
There are more than 100 trillion microbes live inside our body. The human gut is chock full of a variety of bacteria, both good and bad. Each strain of probiotics has a different effect on our health. Despite the popularity of probiotics, do you know what they are and how to ensure their efficacy?
New Finding: Gut Dysbiosis in COVID-19 Patients
The COVID-19 pandemic has been raging worldwide since its outbreak in December 2019. A recent study by a university in Hong Kong discovered that the composition of gut microbiota in coronavirus patients is concordant with disease severity. Patients had higher numbers of ‘bad bacteria’ and lacked certain ‘good bacteria’ known to regulate their immune system. What is worse is that an abnormal gut microbiota (dysbiosis) persists after clearance of the virus, which could contribute to lingering symptoms known as ‘Long COVID’.
The gut: your second brain Five major diseases of Dysbiosis
There is no doubt that the gut’s primary function is the digestion of food, absorption of nutrients and excretion of waste, but scientists have discovered that our guts performs far beyond that. The enteric nervous system (ENS) in our guts communicates with the brain in our head, earning itself the monicker “second brain”, and is a considerable factor in the existence of certain diseases in our bodies including eczema, obesity, diabetes, and in our overall mental health including autism and depression. Scientists believe that our second brain gut is one of the most important organs in our body.
