Gut microbiota, which is the ecosystem of microorganisms in our gut, is a major determinant of human health. Emerging evidence indicates that the gut microbiota plays an important role in many conditions such as emerging viral infections, colorectal cancer, type 2 diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, depression, dementia, eczema and allergy.
The gut microbiota regulates our immune system against infections. A number of recent landmark studies from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) discovered that patients with novel virus suffered from severe imbalance of gut microbiota (dysbiosis) with a decrease in beneficial bacteria which may contribute to susceptibility to novel virus infections and adverse clinical outcomes.
Our product is based on innovative discoveries exclusively licensed from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. This microbiome formula is derived from big data analysis of novel virus patients and the healthy population. A clinical study by CUHK showed that significantly more novel virus patients who received the microbiome immunity formula had complete symptom resolution, reduced proinflammatory markers, increased favourable gut bacteria and neutralizing antibody, compared with subjects who did not have the formula.
The benefit of this microbiome immunity formula is not limited to only COVID-19 patients. In a separate study of 1,000 healthy people in Hong Kong, almost 40% showed significant dysbiosis and hence impaired immunity similar to that of COVID-19 patients. This formula has the potential to boost your immunity against emerging infections.
A probiotic is a living microorganism, which improve our intestinal microbial balance; probiotics are non-pathogenic and are mostly can survive in stomach and pass to small bowel. They help to protect against disease and maintain wellbeing.
Our body harbours a great number of bacteria in the gut, especially in our large bowel. Described as our “invisible organ”, not only do these microorganisms help harvesting energy and producing certain nutrients from prebiotics, they also play an important role in immunity and communication with our brain.
Gut bacteria need fuel to live, just like us! What gut bacteria feed on is called prebiotics, “a substrate that is selectively utilized by host microorganisms conferring a health benefit”. These substrates are mostly subset of carbohydrate groups, which remain intact beyond the acidic stomach environment in the digestive tract, and travel down to be served as a fest to the bacteria in the large intestine. Gut bacteria feed on these substrates and produce short chain fatty acids (SCFAS) that have protective effect on our gut health.
“G-NiiB Immunity +” contains 3 well selected bifidobacteria and 3 specific prebiotics. These 3 specific prebiotics provide the best performance in enhancing the 3 bifidobacteria viability.
Probiotics in “G-NiiB Immunity +” are specially protected by a patented technology from Italy, so they are tolerance to heat, oxygen, and gastric juice.
Most of the fermented food contains probiotics, but the type and amount of probiotic vary among in each food so it may not be the best way to fulfil our need. Moreover, as probiotics in food are not protected, they are very venerable to gastric juice and most of them will not make their way to the GUT.
On enhancing immune response:
Decreased inflammatory response on reducing impact from diseases:
The product contains traces of milk. People with lactose intolerance are recommended to consult a physician before use.
The product does not contain any substance that is not suitable for people with g6pd deficiency thus the product is suitable for people with g6pd deficiency.
The product only contains a very small amount of sugar which is come from the prebiotics. Recent studies have shown that consumption of prebiotics and probiotics can decrease the fasting blood glucose level. Thus, the product is suitable for people with diabetes.
