As science continues to emerge in gut research, novel gut bacteria are discovered.
Akkermansia muciniphila has emerged as the “sentinel of the gut” and has been shown to promote gut barrier integrity, modulate immune response and inhibit inflammation.
Adequate levels of Akkermansia muciniphila provides that extra mucus layer of protection in leaky gut.
Low levels of this important bacteria have been found to be associated with a higher risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, auto-immune disease and obesity.
