“I have a dream that one day
people will stop me in the street to tell me that
Akkermansia has changed their life.”

Prof. Patrice D. Cani


In 2035, 4 billion people may be overweight or affected by obesity*. In 2045, 783 million people will have diabetes**.


Why Akkermansia

Akkermansia – the missing link to better health comes from within

With low levels of Akkermansia, toxins and fat enter the body, leading to excessive weight gain and related diseases such as insulin intolerance, cardiovascular disorders and fatty liver.

Restoring the natural level of Akkermansia is key to overcoming lifestyle diseases and getting back to living a healthier life.

Gut health is crucial to our overall health and well-being. And Akkermansia – the most dominant bacteria species in the gut by far – plays an essential role.
