Re-Framing Bioavailability Through the
Lens of the Microbiome
Thomas G. Guilliams, PhD
Clinical research and therapeutic use of botanically derived ingredients continue to grow worldwide. This includes ingredients that are minimally processed as well as those that are highly concentrated compounds (e.g., curcumin). While many botanical preparations have been used for millennia in various medicinal traditions (numerous of which are recorded in ancient pharmacopeias), some have also been evaluated using the latest drug discovery techniques.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
How the human gut microbiome may be a key mechanism driving bioactivity of certain botanicals
The conundrum between absorption, bioavailability and efficacy, as it pertains to the application of botanical compounds
Examples of botanical compounds to be wary of that overmarket of “bioavailability” claims
