DALLAS, TX – November 14, 2019 – Essential Formulas’ Science Director, Ross Pelton, RPh, Ph.D., CCN won 1st place honors for his poster abstract on “Postbiotic Metabolites: The New Frontier in Microbiome Science” during the prestigious “Microbiome & Probiotics Series: USA” annual conference held October 29-30, in San Diego, California.

Dr. Pelton’s scientific abstract was one of 17 preliminary entries chosen by the Microbiome & Probiotics Scientific Committee and showcased during the symposium. The poster abstracts were selected based on a presentation of the most significant developments in the field of microbiome science. Winning 1st place provided Dr. Pelton the opportunity to give an oral presentation to conference attendees, including leading scientists in the microbiome and probiotic arenas.

The exposition of “Postbiotic Metabolites: The New Frontier in Microbiome Science” depicted the critical roles that Postbiotics play in the regulation of health and the maintenance of a healthy microbiome.

Postbiotics is a term that refers to the vast array of compounds that are produced by the metabolic activity of probiotic bacteria during the natural fermentation process. These substances are collectively called Postbiotic Metabolites. They include various vitamins, enzymes, short-chain fatty acids, and other organic acids like fulvic acid, which is key to the absorption and transport of minerals and amino acids.

As the only known 3-year fermented whole food supplement on the market today, Dr. Ohhira’s award-winning probiotic formula contains Prebiotics, Probiotics, and, most importantly, Postbiotic Metabolites.

“A pioneer in probiotic health and research, Dr. Ohhira verified decades ago what science now confirms, that the most vital and health-promoting aspect of probiotic supplementation is in the 500 plus restorative metabolites produced in his exclusive 3-year fermentation process,” said Dr. Pelton. “I was elated to earn this esteemed honor and be able to present Dr. Ohhira’s life’s work and educate others on his revolutionary formula.”

Microbiome & Probiotics Series: USA is a component of the leading global microbiome and probiotics conference series. The 2019 US event brought together more than 400 industry, academic, and investment leaders to discuss the most cutting-edge microbiome and probiotics research, challenges, and opportunities in moving research towards commercialization and potential partnerships and collaborations.
