The importance of the microbiome
September 9, 2021
The gut is our biggest interface to the outside world and is home to the microbiota – a unique community of around 100 trillion bacteria. Vital for our health and wellbeing, gut bacteria have many health-promoting functions, including digestion and the development and functioning of our immune system. At Danone Nutricia Research we recognise the importance of a healthy gut for our overall health and wellbeing. For over 40 years, we have carried out pioneering research into gut development and function, as well as the modulation of the gut microbiota through nutrition.
“Through our dedicated research on the gut and microbiota, we hope to continue to provide nutritional solutions that will support the health of infants at every stage of their development.”
