RONKONKOMA, N.Y., Jan. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Further showcasing its scientific leadership in the health and wellness industry, associates of The Nature's Bounty Co. Scientific Affairs team have co-authored a chapter in a newly released reference book on digestive health.
The recently published book, "The Microbiota in Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology: Implications for Human Health, Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Dysbiosis" is described by publisher Elsevier as "a one-stop reference on the state-of-the-art research on gut microbial ecology in relation to human disease" and is widely available for purchase through www.elsevier.com.
The book's 23rd chapter, "Prebiotics: Inulin and Other Oligosaccharides" was co-authored by Dr. Susan Hazels Mitmesser and Maile Combs from The Nature's Bounty Co., and briefly covers the evolution of prebiotic definitions, measurements of changes in gut bacteria associated with prebiotics, well accepted prebiotics, and candidate prebiotics that require further investigation.
Dr. Susan Hazels Mitmesser, co-author of the chapter and Senior Director of Nutrition & Scientific Affairs at The Nature's Bounty Co., said, "This book chapter is another example of the continued commitment The Nature's Bounty Co. has to scientific diligence and leadership in the microbiota arena. We apply this scientific rigor and knowledge to our new product innovations and it differentiates them from other offerings."
