The microbiome and immune system connection

Microbiome modulation can play an important role in promoting metabolic health, digestive health and much more.

A healthy immune system is the body’s vital defense against infectious organisms. The immune cells are in constant communication with the gut microbes, and that relationship is necessary for optimal functioning of the immune system.

Consumers, holistic gut health and the microbiome

Beyond healthy digestion, today’s consumers also care about holistic gut health due to the gut microbiome’s association with overall well-being.

Some consumers consider the microbiome to be the ultimate root of wellness. They associate a healthy gut microbiome with a range of benefits.

Increasingly aware of their health, many consumers are looking for functional foods and beverages and other non-drug solutions to support their overall wellness. Microbiome solutions that address targets related to overall health and wellness are available in a range of products including those containing prebiotic dietary fibers.

Prebiotic fiber and the microbiome

Prebiotic fiber is also associated with a healthy gut microbiome and the holistic health benefits that accompany it.

As consumers take proactive and holistic approaches to wellness, prebiotic dietary fiber is:

  • Becoming a sought-after ingredient
  • Valued for its support of the microbiome, and the microbiome has been associated with overall health, mood and mental focus

Prebiotic fiber can help promote beneficial microbes in the gut microbiome composition. The gut microbiome is necessary for overall functioning of the immune system/for the overall immune system function.

Not all fiber is created equal—and dietary fiber that meets the definition of a prebiotic answers consumers’ desires for a holistic approach to digestive health and microbiome support.
