The connection between digestive issues and the gut microbiome is now well understood by consumers, but what many people don’t know is that gut health is connected to a host of other common ailments.
Fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog See.Need.Want recently interviewed Bioxyne’s Chief Scientist Dr Peter French, who has studied the connection between the microbiome and immune health since 2002.
In this detailed interview, Peter explains the importance of maintaining gut health, how gut bacteria affects the immune system and mental health, and what we know about how PCC (Lactobacillus fermentumVRI-003) affects all these things.
“PCC® has been shown to be effective at inhibiting a range of pathogenic bacteria in the laboratory, and to boost immune and gut health in clinical studies,” Peter told See.Need.Want editor Rosie McKay. “Given the clear connection between the gut and the brain, PCC® is likely to have a positive effect on the function of both.”
Cell and molecular biologist Dr Peter French is Bioxyne’s Scientific Director.
Peter has worked on the connection between gut health and immunity since 2002.
In this short video, he talks about the connection between gut health and immunity, and the findings of several PCC® scientific and clinical studies.
“We’ve demonstrated that PCC can colonise the intestinal tract and, most importantly, we’ve got several clinical studies published in peer-reviewed international journals that demonstrate that PCC® when you take it, even one capsule a day, can significantly boost our mucosal immunity,” Peter said.
