The role of Postbiotics on Immune Health

Featuring EpiCor®

Postbiotics are functional compounds, generated in a matrix during fermentation, which may be used to promote health. The term postbiotics can be considered an umbrella term for synonyms and related terms of microbial fermentation components1EpiCor® is a whole food fermentate, a postbiotic ingredient clinically shown to support the immune system and modulate and benefit the gut microbiota. 

Talking about the role of postbiotics and gut health, in an interview to Nutritional Outlook Dr  Justin Green Ph.D., Director of Scientific Affairs at Embria Health Sciences, explained: “Consumers are always looking for better ways to support their gut. And postbiotics don’t add more bugs to your system, they simply support the bacteria that you currently have, so we’re building on the story of the microbiome. The microbiome is something that scientists and consumers are interested in. Now, with postbiotics, they have a new option to support their gut with no side effects and additional health benefits such as immune strength”.

Plant based Iodine for Immune Support

Iodine is an essential element required for the function of all organ systems. Despite this, much of Europe is deficient in iodine, and increasingly those on plant-based diets.

Although the importance of iodine in thyroid hormone synthesis and reproduction is well known, its direct effects on the immune system are elusive.

However, a study1 revealed the novel network between human immune cells and thyroid-related molecules and highlight the importance of iodine in regulating the function of human immune cells.

PureSea’s range of naturally innovative seaweed ingredients provide a good source of natural plant-based essential iodine.  Use of PureSea allows for numerous EFSA health claims including supporting normal thyroid function and production of thyroid hormones.

EpiCor®: A Postbiotic Ingredient for Gut Health.

Thanks to their stability,  postbiotic fermentates have the opportunity to be the new market leader in the gut-health space. EpiCor®, a postbiotic fermentate made through a specialized fermentation process, has a wealth of science supporting its immune and gut health benefits.

In an interview to Nutritional Outlook Dr Justin Green, Ph.D., Director of Scientific Affairs at Embria Health Sciences, explained: “Postbiotics are the beneficial functional components created by fermentation of live microorganisms that are subsequently deactivated, or killed, and then dried into a powder that is easily characterized, studied, and formulated into supplements. EpiCor is fermentation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or baker’s yeast. After it is fermented, the live yeast is inactivated, or heat killed, and dried. It keeps all those metabolites intact and consistent from batch to batch, which gives it a unique metabolite fingerprint.”

New clinical trial reconfirms Longvida benefits on mood and memory

In 2014, researchers at Swinburne University studied the effects of Longvida Optimized Curcumin® in healthy older adults for its benefits in memory, mood, and fatigue.1 The results of this trial showed significant positive results and earned the 2015 NutraIngredients Research of the Year Award.  

Today, the same group of researchers have published a partial replication study, further establishing Longvida® as the Cognitive Curcumin of Choice™ and supporting the positive results in cognition and mood first recognized in the groundbreaking study in 2014. 

The new study, also conducted at Swinburne University, was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-groups "partial replication study evaluating similar effects [of improved working memory and reduced fatigue and stress reactivity in a healthy older cohort] at 4 and 12 weeks Longvida® supplementation." Eighty healthy men and women (aged 50-80 years) were randomized to receive 400mg of Longvida® daily (containing 80mg of curcumin), or a matching placebo.2
