Recent studies suggest that Alzheimer’s disease might take its root in an inflammation of the gut, directly linking oral and gut health to brain functions. Gut bacteria travel to the brain through the vagus nerve and settle in the astrocytes.
Wearable devices can increasingly monitor the invisible workings of our bodies. Liberbio speculates that with the rise of DIY microbiology, we will be able to have an influence on previously unattainable brain and human functions.
The Liberbio mouthpiece enables you to monitor your oral microbiota with the aim of boosting brain performance.
