Delivering probiotics via just-add-water tech

BotanicalsPlus, in collaboration with partner company Jeen international, is investigating the use of the latter’s patented just-add-water powder technologies to potentially store and maintain viable probiotic cultures to be reconstituted at the point-of-use to deliver living probiotic cultures to the skin via elegant emulsions

The human microbiome is a complex milieu of numerous microorganisms, fungi, viruses, and microscopic insects that inhabit the expanse of surface over and in the entire human body. The combination of the skin, gut, and mouth/airway microbiome impacts various aspects of human health and physiology. 

When the system is working well, that is, when it is well balanced, the body is usually very healthy. Yet when there is an imbalance, the consequences can be profound to the point where a disruption in the microbiome of either the skin, gut or mouth/airways can lead to a significant dysbiosis that could, in extreme circumstances, potentially result in death. 

So, the study of the human microbiome is a significantly important science that can lead to new ideas in human health, aging and appearance. The science around delivering living microorganisms to the gut has been actively studied for many years and there are numerous products on the market, from items like yogurt to tableted probiotic nutritional supplements, that can deliver beneficial microorganisms to the gut.
