A natural solution to global gut problems

Gut disorders are an increasing challenge in the Western world due to poor diet. But, according to research, an important remedy and preventive measure is biotic supplements and Danish Fermbiotics is now launching products with a unique combination of compounds for re-balancing gut health.

Hundreds of millions of people in the Western world suffer from serious health issues caused by imbalance in their gut flora and the number is increasing significantly with so far no current scientific or medical cure. However, recent research shows that better diet combined with bioactive metabolite, pro- and prebiotics can help solve this global problem.

Bio-specialists Fermbiotics have developed unique food supplements containing all three compounds based on fermented rapeseed and seaweed. – A 100 pct. natural product particularly efficient for re-balancing gut health. The product range include food supplements for humans as well as for pets. Next week, Fermbiotics will represent the Scale-Up Bioeconomy programme at the Scale-Up Denmark National Finale 2019.

One of 12 finalists selected in 12 industries

Fermbiotics is selected as one of 12 finalists in this year’s Scale-Up Denmark National Finale 2019. Next week, the company takes the stage with the other finalists, each representing an industry. Fermbiotics represents bioeconomy and among the other industries represented are maritime, robotics, food and cleantech. The bioeconomy section of the Scale-Up Denmark programme is driven by Spring Nordic.

“We are proud to announce Fermbiotics as our finalist in the National Finale 2019. They are a truly innovative bio-company,” says Mogens Riber, Business Developer at Spring Nordic.

In the US, approx 15 pct. of the population suffers from these diseases and the number has tripled during the past 15 years. Globally, it is estimated that more than 700 million people are affected by the diseases that are under the same umbrella as other lifestyle diseases such as type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol. Recent microbiome research indicates that the cause is imbalance in the gut flora.
