“Each microbe makes a contribution to your health; some directly, indirectly, it’s an orchestra and they have to be in tune,” says our old friend Jack Oswald, a serial entrepreneur well-known in industrial biotechnology circles but for the last couple of years heading up ISOThrive, which produces and distributes dietary supplements for your microbiome.
Companies like ISOthrive and some researchers have been filling in gaps in our knowledge of how to take care of the microbes that take care of us, and that’s the world of prebiotics. There’s evidence that there are dramatic perceptions of health improvement among those who have changed their diets and are getting the metabolites they need. And two-thirds of those who have been taking ISOthrive have been showing “substantial improvement,” Oswald told us.
Oswald gave this illuminating overview of the ISOthrive technology at ABLC Next 2016 in San Francisco.
