Restores F.prau for Microbiome Balance

As the world’s first oral supplement to support Faecalibacterium prausnitzii (F.prau), Livaux is a ground-breaking product that could result in life changing health improvements for millions of people.

Introduction

Microbiome balance is known to affect body weight and composition, mental health, memory, sickness prevention and the risk of major diseases, including diabetes and cancer. An estimated 80% of your immune system is located in your gut, which is why looking after gut microflora is so important for good health. It is becoming increasingly clear that unbalanced gut flora is a primary factor in rising disease rates.

Only recently, an intestinal bacterium called Faecalibacterium prausnitzii (F.prau) was found to be hugely important for gut flora balance. F.prau is one of the most abundant bacteria in the human gut ecosystem. Low numbers have been associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD, including ulcerative colitis (UC), and Crohn’s disease) coeliac disease and chronic constipation.

Due to it's oxygen sensitivity, F.prau cannot be introduced into the gut via direct probiotic supplementation. The growing desire to specifically target F.prau has led to emerging developments in faecal transplants via stool delivery or oral administration - treatments that are not necessarily appealing or accessible options for everyday consumers.

Livaux (pronounced liv-ox) is a natural and novel prebiotic supplement derived entirely from non-GMO New Zealand gold kiwifruit. Research shows that it helps F.prau communities to flourish and recover.

Boosting the numbers of beneficial F.prau in situ with Livaux (patent pending) offers the unique ability to support healthy levels of F.prau naturally.

More about F.prau

F.prau is one of the most abundant bacterium in the human intestinal microbiota of healthy adults, representing 5% to 15% of the total bacterial population. It produces butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid that gives intestinal cells their energy. Over the past five years, an increasing number of studies have clearly described the importance of F.prau as a component of the healthy human microbiome. Changes in the abundance of F.prau have been linked to dysbiosis (microbial imbalance), which is the basis for all the diseases mentioned above.
