Date:10/31/2011

NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NuMe Health LLC, a biotechnology company developing evidence-based cobiotic™ products designed to prevent disease and improve disease status by modifying  the bacteria that live in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, today announced the formation of its scientific advisory board (SAB). NuMe's SAB includes distinguished experts from academia and industry in the fields of nutrition, diabetes, obesity, health promoting foods and the human microbiome. NuMe also announced that the company has filed a patent application covering a proprietary formulation of its first cobiotic product, NM504™, which is being developed for the prediabetic population.NM504 is designed to help prediabetic individuals achieve and maintain normal blood glucose levels and a healthy body weight by altering the GI microbiota, which includes the trillions of bacteria resident in the human GI system, along with its environment.  NM504 contains a blend of ingredients that can alter the composition of the GI microbiota in specific ways that promote improved control of glucose levels for prediabetics with unhealthy weight. It acts by stimulating certain bacteria that inhibit appetite signals and stimulate satiety signals and also by inhibiting the ability of other bacteria to capture energy from undigested fat and protein and convert them into calories that are absorbed by the body.

The patent filing covers the composition, manufacture and delivery of NM504. 

The NuMe SAB members include:

  • George C. Fahey, Jr., PhD, professor emeritus of animal sciences and the Kraft Foods endowed professor emeritus of nutritional sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is an expert in comparative nutrition, the health of the GI tract and the role of carbohydrates in affecting nutrition and gut health. Dr. Fahey has authored over 300 peer-reviewed journal articles and is the recipient of num
