Bacteria & Gut Health Science
A healthy gut plays a critical role in the overall well-being of our entire body. Although many of us have grown up believing that bacteria is something we should be wary of, the human microbiome contains many beneficial bacteria. The scale of the microbiome is massive — there are more than a trillion microorganisms, or bacteria, working with our natural systems to improve bodily health.
Every individual has a unique microbiome composition that is dependent on diet, lifestyle, and environment. Poor diet and stress can influence and drain the beneficial bacteria allowing for more harmful ones to move in. Without these beneficial microorganisms, the body has a hard time absorbing the complex nutrients we consume.
Increasing studies show that chronic diseases are linked to an imbalance of these microorganisms in the gut microbiome. Pendulum began as a discovery platform to understand the microbiome and important factors to consider when looking at disease solutions. After several years of research and growth, we have developed cutting edge technology to identify, test and develop novel, condition-targeted formulations of bacterial strains and prebiotics to deliver novel approaches to managing chronic diseases. We are motivated by the goal of creating innovative and natural solutions that improve health and wellness in all of our lives.
