THE 5TH INTERNATIONAL YAKULT SYMPOSIUM

The Gut and More, Probiotic Influences beyond the Gut

Continuing advances in research and investigation have led to the secrets of the gut microbiota and the influence of probiotics on this ecosystem to be explored at an ever increasing rate. A broad array of effects can be attributed to the gut and its microbiological components. It is now very clear that gut health forms the basis of health in other areas of the human body.

During the 5th International Yakult Symposium the importance of gut health and the gut’s essential role in general health and well-being will be highlighted. The program will not just consider the digestive and defensive functions of the gut but also will focus on and discuss cutting-edge research into the possible effects of pro- and microbiota “beyond the gut” such as in oral healthcare, obesity related diseases and general well-being.
The latest findings from clinical, immunological and basic research will be presented for discussion. This symposium will provide updates on the exciting findings in the field of gut health and will open a window towards the future of this fascinating area of science.
