hard to develop new probiotics. It takes a lot of work, and a lot of expertise,”
says Wesley Morovic, leader of the Probiotic Genomics team at IFF, an
international ingredient company that owns the Howaru brand of probiotics.
its humble beginnings as an offshoot of dairy production, the probiotics
industry has evolved into a sophisticated global enterprise focused on
identifying potentially helpful microbes and finding optimal ways to use
early probiotic development was based largely on observation and educated guesswork,
the process today involves precise genomic and metabolomic analysis.
The American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP) and the American Botanical Council (ABC)—two of the nation’s leading herbal medicine advocacy groups—have joined forces with the International Association for the Advancement of High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC Association) to promote greater consensus and wider use of this important analytical technique. According to an AHP press release announcing […]
The COVID-19 pandemic has fueled a massive surge in supplement use across the United States, according to data from a new Harris Poll sponsored by the Samueli Foundation. The survey gathered responses from 2,053 US women and men, representing a broad range of ages, ethnicities, and geographical locations. Over three quarters of the respondents (76%) […]
systemic inflammation and autoimmune reactions underlying many common
metabolic, digestive, respiratory, and musculoskeletal disorders.
type food allergies and sensitivities are major drivers of inflammation. Left
unchecked, allergies and sensitivities can lead to immune system “anarchy.”
challenge for clinicians is that sensitivity patterns are highly
individualized, and many common foods which are not problematic for most
people, can be highly problematic for some.
This free webinar, Roger Deutsch and Amy Pieczarka explore the role of the innate immune system in delayed type food allergies and sensitivities, in the context of chronic inflammatory conditions.
They share data on newly discovered pathways that lead to food-induced autoimmunity, the role played by neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), and the ways to apply neutrophil activation assays to identify individual triggers and tailor therapeutic interventions.
