The human microbiome hosts trillions of microbes and hundreds of bacterial species, it’s unique to each individual, and its composition can fluctuate regularly due to diet, stress and more. The bulk of bacterial microorganisms reside in the gut, making it a hot spot to further impact immune and brain health, weight and mental wellness. As science continues to unveil a range of ingredients with potential to impact the microbiome, the industry is charged with developing innovative products and further educating consumers about the space.

This session will cover:

  • Emerging microbiome science and whole-body health (digestion, immunity, heart, brain, skin, etc.)

  • Researched “-biotic” ingredients and formulation synergies that may help modulate gut microbiota

  • Related market data, challenges and opportunities, including consumer perceptions and behaviors

  • Recent trends in microbiome-related product launches and areas with promising white space
