OptiBiotix Health has launched LeanBiome, a science-backed sports nutrition ingredient.
A combination of prebiotic and dietary fibres in the ingredient promote a lean body composition and gut health.
René Kamminga, CEO of OptiBiotix Ltd, said: “There is now growing scientific evidence that there is an anecdotal link between the microbiome and sports nutrition health. Research suggests that modifying our gut microbiota by using probiotics and prebiotics could improve general wellbeing, performance and energy for individuals partaking in sport.
“LeanBiome has been specifically formulated with the needs of sports enthusiasts in mind and builds on our core expertise in microbiome modulation for improved health. The ingredient has been developed to increase levels of positive microbes, such as Bifidobacteria to counter-balance the drawbacks associated with an unbalanced diet, such as the reduction of toxic metabolites.”
Alongside the launch, the company has secured a supply and licensing agreement with a leading global player in beauty and nutrition. The British e-commerce company specialises in taking brands direct to consumers through its online platform, and will sell finished products containing the ingredient into Europe, Australia and Asia.
The range launched in January 2022 for Europe and Asia via the distribution partner, while a North American launch is expected later this year.
