Beer and dark chocolate influence gut microbiota

It's the holidays!  Eat, drink and be merry!  Enjoy yourself!

You want a healthy gut don't you?

Researchers around the world believe our gut microbiome impacts human health.  Belgian scientists discovered dark chocolate drives the presence of a specific bacteria and beer intake was also influential on gut microbiota composition.  See recent publication for additional information.

If you're working with gut bacteria, you need Oxyrase products to increase anaerobe growth and improve recovery of injured cells.

OxyPRAS Plus® Brucella plates for general anaerobe growth and colony counts.

Oxyrase® for Broth and OxyPRAS® Brain Heart Infusion (BHI) Broth for reliable growth from lyophilized anaerobes and custom strains.
