SCIENCE BASED NUTRITION
New technologies used by microbiologists means we can now analyse organisms living inside your gut – bacteria, viruses, archaea, fungi and more. This informs how you can use food to optimise towards holistic well-being and ultimately illness prevention.
Professor of Biotechnology at Dublin City University is mentoring Nylos to help improve the biotech pipeline supported by most recent research.
ANALYSIS LIKE NEVER BEFORE
The Nylos lab partner in Europe is ISO 9001 certified and guarantees highest quality standards. Nylos uses advanced gene sequencing technologies to revolutionise the analysis of microorganisms, which enables a new view of their ubiquity and diversity. Our modern techniques allow the isolation of previously uncultured human gut bacteria.
This technology is based on NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) where the DNA of the bacteria residing in your gut can be identified, quantified and defined to recommend you the nutrients you need to boost your health and well-being.
Your gut microbiome is made up of trillions of bacteria, fungi and other microbes. It plays a very important role in your well-being by helping control digestion, which can benefit your immune system.
THE BALANCED MICROBIOME
An imbalance of unhealthy and healthy microbes in the intestines may contribute to weight gain, high blood sugar, high cholesterol and other disorders. These can be prevented through better nutrition.
YOUR MICROBIOME IS THE KEY
There are more bacterial cells in your body than human cells. With over 1,000 species of bacteria in the human gut microbiome, each of them plays a different role in your body as each bacteria can be optimised using food.
Microbes can weigh as much as 1–2 kg, which is roughly the weight of your brain. Together, they function as an extra organ in your body and can play a huge role on your overall wellness.
