NEW ORLEANS, and PARKLAND, Fla., Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
MicroBiome Therapeutics, LLC, a leading company applying the science of the gastrointestinal (GI) microbiome to promote health and wellness, today announced a cooperative marketing agreement with PetGiftz, an innovative online retailer of premium pet products, to market a dietary supplement for dogs formulated with its BiomeBliss® prebiotic. BiomeBliss is a patented, first-in-class prebiotic supplement specifically developed to nourish and support a healthy gastrointestinal (GI) microbiome‒the trillions of gut bacteria that can affect digestive health, hunger, metabolism and immune function.
Under the terms of the non-exclusive agreement, PetGiftz will market the BiomeBliss-formulated prebiotic under its Over the Moon Pets brand, an online source of natural and health-promoting products for dogs. Two rigorous clinical studies show BiomeBliss is safe and helps control hunger, promotes regularity and supports overall health of the GI microbiome. Study results also show BiomeBliss helps maintain healthy mealtime blood sugar levels when already in the normal range.*
BiomeBliss was originally developed to promote GI and digestive health in humans. However, a growing body of research shows that there are many similarities between humans and dogs in the composition and functioning of the GI microbiome and in its response to diet.1 Additionally, scientists now understand that the lack of diversity in modern diets—be it in humans or dogs—can adversely impact the microbiome, potentially contributing to digestive issues and metabolic disorders. BiomeBliss is specifically formulated to provide certain prebiotics and micronutrients needed to support a healthy GI microbiome that are often missing in contemporary diets. Formulated as a good-tasting powdered supplement, BiomeBliss is easy to add to food or liquids.
MicroBiome Therapeutics CEO, Dale Pfost, PhD, notes, "BiomeBliss reflects almost a decade of research and product development. We are proud to partner with PetGiftz to make our scientifically formulated prebiotic microbiome modulator available for dogs. BiomeBliss' benefits are supported by pharmaceutical-quality, peer-reviewed clinical studies, and we look forward to working with the PetGiftz team to increase awareness and uptake in the pet community."
Reports suggest that a lower diversity of bacteria species in the microbiome is associated with higher body weight, reduced production of beneficial short chain fatty acids, and increased gut permeability ("leaky gut"). Contemporary companion animal diets often lack the nutrients needed to maintain microbiome diversity. BiomeBliss is designed to provide the essential prebiotic micro-nutrients that may be lacking.
Joshua Sokolow, CEO of PetGiftz, comments. "We are committed to providing our growing customer base with the most innovative and highest quality products for their pets. We are thrilled to be the first to market BiomeBliss, the first clinically-tested prebiotic specifically targeted to dogs."
BiomeBliss is a natural, tasty berry-flavored powder that mixes easily with food or water. Made with nutrients isolated from blueberries, agave and oats, BiomeBliss supplies key prebiotics to the gut microbiome that are typically missing from the diets of dogs and other companion animals:
- Inulin from plants provides nutrients that nourish and expand microorganism populations
- Polyphenol antioxidants from blueberries shift the growth and activity of certain bacteria associated with a healthy microbiome
- Beta-glucan from oats protects the mucosal lining of the gut and supports the immune system.*
