Together with a team from the London Agri Food Innovation Clinic, SeqBiome showed that the effects on the microbiome of a three week consumption of the MOJU Prebiotic Shot drink.
The drink contained a mixture of prebiotic fibres rich in polyphenols, which significantly changed gut microbiota alpha and beta diversity in healthy individuals, resulting an increase of the beneficial bacteria Bifidobacterium adolesentis and Lachnospiraceae CAG-81 sp900066785.
People generally are not consuming enough dietary fibre, and there is disparity between what we eat and what we think we eat. These encouraging results demonstrate the tangible benefit of a convenient daily fibre top-up in the form of a functional fruit juice drink with a mixture of prebiotic fibres.
