Increased microbiota diversity observed in individuals with a regular daily intake of fermented foods is coincident with a decrease in numerous markers of inflammation.

What is a microbiome and why do we care so much about your microbes.

Your body is full of trillions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They are collectively known as the microbiome. Your gut is home to most of those bacteria and each person has an unique microbiome determined by their genetics, epigenetics, life history and environment.

An imbalance of unhealthy and healthy microbes in the intestine can be the cause of weight gain, high blood sugar, high cholesterol and other disorders. Recently, however, it has been proven that consuming fermented daily can drastically reduce overall inflammation in the body.

Probiotics VS POSTbiotics

While pharma probiotics add extra bacteria to your gut (if they're not already dead, that is), POSTbiotics diversify the unique microbiome already present in your gut by giving good bacteria the metabolites they need to flourish!

Ani Biome microdrinks are rich in POSTBIOTICS, which have recently been proven to offer most of the benefits previously attributed to probiotics (the overconsumption of which can lead to adverse effects such as bloating, confusion, and brain fog).

The gut - brain axis

Everything in your body is connected. Your enteric (gastrointestinal) nervous system is so complex, and uses many of the same types of neurotransmitters as your central nervous system, that it is often called your "second brain".

It is in constant communication both with your gut microbiota, due to the close proximity, and with your central nervous system through nervous and hormonal signaling, making it the bridge between your microbiota and your brain.

A healthy microbiota is known to strengthen your blood-brain barrier, promote the maturation of immune cells in your brain, to produce, transform, or regulate the production of host hormones, even influence mood and behaviour. The microbiota is an active participant in your body and mind, not just an accidental passenger.

Why are polyphenols also important?

Our microdrinks are packed with polyphenols. Research shows thet polyphenols have been found to exhibit strong antioxidant effects, meaning that they can help manage blood pressure levels and keep your blood vessels healthy and flexible, promoting good circulation. They also help reduce chronic inflammation, another risk factor for heart disease. Polyphenols can reduce and help control your blood sugar levels.

When is the right time to have a microdrink?

Ani Biome microdrinks work best when consumed consistently every day. We recommend drinking them daily as part of your morning ritual, but they’re good for you all day long! Recently, a study from Stanford University found that consuming two to three fermented beverages per day significantly reduces inflammation in the body and directly benefits overall immunity and metabolic health.



every body is different,
so why treat each microbiome the same

Microbiome-centric design blueprint

The concept behind Ani Biome is to collect data from different sources about your individual and unique microbiome, health status, biological age, and lifestyle. The data is then integrated, and a prediction is made on how to improve your overall health and wellness by developing a custom made approach to significantly reduce overall inflammation in your body. This is why we have partnered with established third-party labs and use multiple data sources to find the best fermented microdrink combination just for you and your microbiome.

Age

BLOOD TEST

Partnership with GLYCANAGE

Tracking your biological age (BA) will help you understand how your lifestyle is affecting your body and give you a numerical value to visualize how lowering you inflammation levels contributes to the progress you’re making towards a greater healthspan.

With the CORE & ULTIMATE yearly subscriptions, you’ll receive two tests, one alongside your first order, and the second one after six months to track your progress and further optimize your overall health.

What are GLYCANS?

Glycans are sugar molecules that surround and modify proteins in your body. They respond to your lifestyle choices and indicate the inflammatory state of your immune system, which in turn contributes to your biological age.

Glycans have a large influence on your unique biology and are regulated almost equally by our genes on one side, and environment and lifestyle choices on the other.

STOOL TEST

Partnership with STOOL MICROBIOME SEQUENCING LAB

Diet and lifestyle patterns are the biggest impact factors that influence the variety of bacteria in your gut. Due to the modern lifestyle many people are experiencing a lack of diversity in their gut, most often without knowing, leading to unknown sources of inflammation.

With the ULTIMATE yearly subscription you’ll receive two tests, one alongside your first order, and the second one after six months to track how diverse your gut microbiome has become.

Why is diversifying your gut microbiome important?

The gut nervous system is often called “the second brain” because of its ability to influence a plethora of processes in the body, from digestion and nutrient absorption to blood sugar, cholesterol, and hormone balance.

A diverse gut microbiome is our body’s natural defense against inflammation, infections and auto-immune disease. Our gut is linked to every part of our body, from our brains to our skin, and the unique balance within it can dictate the state of our overall health and wellbeing.

Office

TEAM BASED APPROACH

Why have your box deliverd to your office?

Providing fermented microdrinks for your employees can help your business thrive. As we always say, true creativity, confidence, and power come from the gut. In a business setting, one might say true productivity originates in the gut. Office wellness and encouraging your employees to better their gut health can lead to fewer sick days, better productivity and more engaged people around the office.

Through a system of gamified personalized AI guidance, soon team mebers can join in, share and connect through their box subscriptions.

Research on the gut microbiota is still in its infancy, and collecting more data on this topic is critical. This is why we are in the process of conducting our own scientific studies with renowned European scientists.

A lot more coming very soon...
