Gnubiotics is a biotech company specialized in producing glycans to modulate the microbiome of humans and animals, naturally.

Glycans are one of the four building blocks of life. Diversity and complexity of glycans are nature’s way to maintain a healthy microbiome, thus improving well-being.

Restoring microbiome diversity, naturally

Vision: Improve health by unlocking the benefits of the microbiome.

Mission: Produce glycans to naturally promote microbiome health and symbiosis.

four Key Biological functions of Natural glycans:

  1. Feeds desirable bacteria
  2. Keeps harmful microbes in check
  3. Fortifies natural barriers
  4. Supports the immune system

The microbiome is a complex ecosystem made of diverse microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, viruses, fungi) that is shaped by the close interaction with equally complex glycans.

The microbiome is under constant change influenced by multiple factors such as our dietary habits. In a state of equilibrium (symbiosis), the microbiome is an essential health asset that contributes to natural defenses and mediates biological functions. Microbial imbalance (dysbiosis) can lead to a range of diseases and conditions.

Natural glycans are complex bioactive molecules that promote a diverse healthy microbiome. Glycan diversity encodes biological information used to unlock the microbiome potential. Thus, glycans are the missing link for the efficient management and maintenance of microbiome high diversity to support overall health.

Gnubiotics’ proprietary platform of natural Glycan Microbiome Modulators (GMMs) nurtures, maintains and restores microbiome diversity. GMMs leverage natural principles to deliver all 4 biological functions at once.

Gnubiotics ingredients are 100% natural (no GMO), structurally rich and effective.


Understanding and replicating nature’s mechanisms of action is central to our pipeline. Our approach is empowered by a proprietary R&D toolbox to validate efficacy at the microbiome level.

GMMs are the only candidates in development that bring the natural complexity, diversity and functionality of glycans present in mammals into functional microbiome-centric products to support overall health.
