Taipei, Taiwan (Merxwire) – Second day of April is World Autism Awareness Day. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a disorder characterized by deficits in social interaction and communication, and by the presence of restricted and repetitive behavior. Autism is recognized as a brain disorder, mainly. Bened Biomedical is notably actively helping people facing autism. Thus, Bened Biomedical is glad to participate in Autism Awareness Day.
Bened Biomedical originated from laboratory of National Yang Ming University, the top medical specialty university in Taiwan, and renders 30 years of experiments on probiotics into accessible solutions targeting neurological and psychological disorders. Lactobacillus Plantarum PS128 is one of the most advanced solutions developed by Bened Biomedical.
PS128 is a probiotic clinically proven to alleviate the core symptoms of Autism (72 people, double blind vs placebo independent human clinical study*). The possible correlation between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and gut microbiota has long been explored. Published scientific papers explain that the mechanisms of PS128 pass notably by the gut-brain axis and the regulation of the levels of Dopamine and Serotonin in the brain, both dysregulated in autism.
Bened comes from benedicere, “good words” in Latin. From its inception, the company stays dedicated to help those in need by producing “pharma-grade” probiotics. Some people in need may not be able to afford such help. Thus, Bened Biomedical initiated the program “Little Stars” in Taiwan. Professor Tsai, Ying-chieh who discovered PS128 is of Taiwanese origin. Under this program, Bened Biomedical supplies its world’s unique probiotic Lactobacillus Plantarum PS128 for free to low income families with children with autism. Bened Biomedical’s greatest win is to enable those in need to regain happiness in life.
On World Autism Awareness Day, Bened renews its will to help people with brain conditions to have a happier life. In this scope, the animal tests and human clinical studies done on Parkinson’s disease are on the verge to have their results being published. PS128 and Bened Biomedical keep working hard to provide more solutions for mental health.
