Our approach towards probiotics

Constantly pushing the boundaries of technology and knowledge

ADM Biopolis was founded in 2003 as a spin-off of the Spanish National Research Council – the most important research public institution in Spain and third largest in Europe, in order to transfer the knowledge and technology of microbial research to the needs of today’s world. It is based in the Scientific Park of the University of Valencia, one of the most important biotech hubs in Europe, where knowledge and innovation are generated.

Constantly pushing the boundaries of technology and knowledge in the latest biotechnological innovations, ADM Biopolis has pioneered and led the design of new biocatalysts for a greener planet, while also discovered new bioproducts designed to improve health and wellbeing. This is possible thanks to a multidisciplinary team of scientists by training covering many different disciplines: biology, biochemistry, chemistry, biotechnology, nutrition, bioinformatics, biostatistics, food technology – but also experts on regulatory, marketing, communication and economics. Thanks to this, we explore and provide new ways of approaching people’s concerns and needs on Health & Nutrition.

ADM Biopolis has been true to its initial commitment, having worked with key partners in order to become a leading expert in biotech solutions, microbiome science, and health. Immediate world challenges require bio-based answers and ADM Biopolis is sure to be a key innovation engine behind these new solutions.

Modular, purposeful and high-performance strains that set the new microbiome standards

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.

A healthy microbiome supports the whole body wellness

The microbiome helps

  • Digest food
  • Produce certain vitamins
  • Regulate our immune system
  • Protect against disease-causing bacteria
  • Maintains healthy gut lining

An imbalanced microbiome can lead to:

  • Abdominal pain and bloating
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Diarrhea
  • Lower Immunoregulatory
  • Many other specific health related issues
