TargEDys and Medical Foods just signed an exclusive marketing and distribution agreement to bring precision probiotic supplements Crescylia and EnteroSatys to the Colombian market.
EnteroSatys is pioneering precision probiotics thanks to its characterized mechanism of action at the molecular level: it increases satiety thanks to the protein ClpB produced by Hafnia alvei HA4597. ClpB naturally mimics the human satiety hormone alpha-MSH. The improved feeling of fullness helps with successful weight loss, as confirmed by a multicentric, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled clinical study with 230 overweight adults, improving the success rate of the diet by almost 40%. This natural strain is a multi-awarded new, natural, safe, and effective weight management solution.
Crescylia is a formulation containing vitamin D3, acacia fiber, and precision probiotic LpWJL, with a characterized mechanism of action at the molecular level: it supports the absorption of protein thanks to the stimulation of peptidase gene expression and NOD2 activation. Its efficacy in growth was demonstrated in several preclinical studies in fruit flies and mice, including two published in Science.
This formulation was developed to support children’s growth and its main active, LpWJL, was elected best nutrition research project of the year 2021 by the internationally recognized NutraIngredients Awards.
Grégory Lambert, CEO of TargEDys:
“We are delighted to partner with Medical Foods to bring both Crescylia and EnteroSatys in Colombia. Like TargEDys, Medical Foods is a dynamic, young company aspiring to bring effective technological innovation to the benefit of patients and consumers.
