The gut harbors a complex microbiome ecosystem, where approximately 70% of cells contributing to the immune system are found. In this webinar, Dr. Raymond Playford, MD, PhD, will explore the research behind bovine colostrum, which naturally contains growth factors and prebiotics important to gut health. Research indicates bovine colostrum promotes and helps maintain a healthy immune and a GI system that also supports gastrointestinal repair and integrity. Stacy Dill, Global Marketing Director of Human & Animal Nutrition at Pantheryx APS La Belle, will address current market opportunity and global trends impacting product development with gut and immune health products, with a focus on the key bioactives that bring both innovation and an increased level of efficacy to immune and digestive health formulas.
