What is Akkermansia muciniphila?

Akkermansia muciniphila is a species of microbe found in the human gut microbiota.

Akkermansia muciniphila inhabits the mucus layer of the large intestine. As the name suggests, muciniphila (to love mucin, in Latin), uses mucin present in the intestinal mucus, as its sole source of carbon, nitrogen and energy.

No wonder it’s being called a “next-generation microbe”!

Our story begins in 2004 when the two renowned scientific innovators Prof. Willem M. de Vos and Prof. Patrice D. Cani discovered that missing link, a tiny and clever gut bacterium that plays a big role in our health by helping to maintain a healthy gut microbiome.

Altered barrier function in the gut with low Akkermansia

Too little of this bacterium and the gut barrier begins to leak, allowing harmful toxins and fat to enter the body.

We now have a product that can restore the natural levels of the bacterium.

This reverses the leak in the gut barrier and helps to improve health and well-being. Together with people’s own efforts to improve their health, this vital element can transform the help against metabolic disorders and other conditions.

If you are one of the millions of individuals with A. muciniphila below ideal levels, you are probably wondering if there is anything you can do to increase the colonisation of this anti-inflammatory bacteria in your gut.

The very good news is that “The Akkermansia Company” have now launched an oral supplement for Weight Management and support glucose control. 

By feeding on your mucin reserves, Akkermansia muciniphila is self-sufficient² Akkermansia muciniphila feeds on mucin and breaks it down to give these vital nutrients to other beneficial bacteria that live in your gut² By consuming mucin, Akkermansia muciniphila encourages your intestinal cells to produce more mucus, strengthening your gut barrier Enhancing communication between gut microbes and your own cells: An abundant population of Akkermansia muciniphila helps support cellular communication. When you have an unbalanced microbiome, it can negatively shift your body into a state of metabolic dysfunction. Promoting microbial diversity: A healthy and abundant population of Akkermansia muciniphila can be used as a good indicator of microbiome diversity. [2] atlasbiomed.com/blog/what-is-akkermansia

If you’re interested in showing your gut some extra love, one of the best ways is to supplement it with Akkermansia muciniphila.
