Dr Tanvi Shinde (PhD), Senior Scientific Officer at HFS commented on the excellent NAFLD  case study results: 

“We are very excited about the extraordinary results of the case study trial by Nutritionist  Marissa Pilla reporting exciting results of Kfibre-based synbiotic in NAFLD patients.  A Kfibre-based synbiotic treatment demonstrated significant reductions of elevated NAFLD  biomarkers, down to normalised range in all patients (specifically GGT Liver enzyme levels).  Given there are currently no FDA approved drugs to treat NAFLD, these results represent  profound value. The microbiome-modulating Kfibre-based synbiotic may prove to be a  promising path forward towards dietary management of metabolic conditions” 

The patent relates to NAFLD, a condition in which excess fat builds up in your liver. The  prevalence of NAFLD is 80-90% in obese adults, 30-50% in patients with diabetes and up to  90% in patients with hyperlipidaemia. NAFLD is a multi-system liver disease and increases  the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney diseases. “Western  Dietary Pattern” is closely associated with increasing risk of NAFLD.  

Gordon Edwards, the CEO of HFS, also commented on the new research & Intellectual  Property submission.  

“This patent submission represents a great addition to Health Food Symmetry’s Intellectual  Property holdings and another proud achievement for our researchers and our clinician  network. This discovery provides a window into a future where Kfibre-synbiotics may have a  genuine impact on human health conditions such as – obesity, Type II diabetes, and liver  disease. We look forward to converting this research and IP into ingredients for licensing  and expansion of Health Food Symmetry’s own Kfibre Pro range of gut health products.
