Lallemand Health Solutions Opens the SEMiPyP Congress  with Innovative Metabolic Health Study Results

Brunella Gonzalez Cautela, M.Sc.A. Clinical Research Specialist at the Rosell® Institute from Microbiome and Probiotics by Lallemand, will open the Sociedad Española de MICROBIOTA, Probióticos y Prebióticos (SEMiPyP) congress, which will be held from September 15 to 18, 2021, in Madrid, Spain.

The aim of the presentation is to share the findings of the Metabolic Health Management study Supplementation with Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus HA-114 as an adjuvant during a weight-loss nutritional intervention among people with obesity/overweight (WMUL study) carried at the University Laval in Quebec, Canada.

“We are thrilled of the outcomes of this breakthrough study in overweight adults on a weight loss program”, announces Ms. Brunella Gonzalez Cautela. At the congress I will talk in detail about the impact of a probiotic supplementation on the response of overweight individuals to a weight-reducing program. We had incredible results highlighting the beneficial effects of the probiotic intervention on eating behaviors, mental health, and metabolic profile. These results reinforce the validity of the brain-gut axis concept and warrants the influence of probiotics on psychological wellbeing among participants enrolled in a caloric-restriction intervention. You don’t want to miss this”, she concludes.

Taken place virtually, with live and on-demand activities, SEMiPyP Congress is dedicated to the promotion and dissemination of scientific knowledge and clinical application around the microbiota, probiotics and prebiotics. In this joint meeting, various national and international experts will address many topics of interest that will be possible to enjoy live or outside of direct hours.
