We know that we are only half human – the human body has 39 trillion bacterial cells vs. 30 trillion human cells. There is an estimated 40,000 bacterial species in the human gut, making the gastrointestinal tract the largest immune organ in our body. The majority of our bacteria reside in the colon, with the skin being the second most abundant site.
This is why at ADM Biopolis, we aim to understand the complex relationship between microbiome and health. Our sequencing technology has enabled us to identify and understand this microbial diversity. There are a different number of health indications that are completely related to our microbial behavior and to our microbiome.
We approach the development of microbiome solutions in a comprehensive way. We isolate, select, develop, and produce the right strains to initiate the specific alteration of the microbiome (dysbiosis) that is responsible for a particular health indication.
