DALLAS, TX – June 13, 2018 – Ross Pelton, RPh, Ph.D., CCN and Director of Scientific Research for Essential Formulas Incorporated was selected to present his scientific abstract on “Postbiotic Metabolites: The New Frontier in Microbiome Science” during the Probiota America/IPA Scientific Frontiers Conference held June 5-7, in Miami.
Dr. Pelton’s abstract was one of 15 entries chosen by the Probiota America’s Scientific Committee, consisting of leading experts within the fields of probiotics, and based on the presentation of the most significant developments in the field of prebiotic, probiotic and microbiome science. Dr. Pelton was also bestowed the honor of having his abstract poster chosen as one of only three deemed worthy of an oral presentation.
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 and 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 3-year fermented whole food supplement on the market today, Dr. Ohhira’s award-winning probiotic formula contains Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Postbiotic Metabolites.
“A pioneer in probiotic health and research, Dr. Ohhira proved what science now confirms, that the most vital and health-promoting aspect of probiotic supplementation is the restorative Postbiotic Metabolites produced in his exclusive natural 3-year fermentation process,” Dr. Pelton. “It was an honor to be able to showcase his life’s work and educate others on his revolutionary formula.”
The International Probiotics Association (IPA) is an international organization with members equally divided between industry and academia, and its goal is to provide a unique forum for the exchange of research and the latest breakthroughs in probiotic technology and new development.
