Providing scientific information for better health 

The Biocodex Microbiota Institute is an international scientific institution that aims to foster better health by spreading knowledge about human microbiota. To do so, the Institute addresses both healthcare professionals and the general public to raise awareness about the central role of this important organ.

Our mission: promote the importance of microbiota to everyone

Because we strongly believe that human microbiota is essential for health and wellbeing, we share scientific information to a wide audience.


  • by providing healthcare professionals with the latest scientific news and data including the Institute’s exclusive content such as Microbiota magazine, thematic folders, and interviews with experts…

  • by helping healthcare professionals improve their patients understanding of their conditions on an everyday basis.

  • by enlightening everyone on the importance of microbiota in healthcare and wellbeing.

As a pioneer in microbiota research, we have a responsibility to extend knowledge about microbiota 

For more than six decades, Biocodex has built a reputation as a pioneer and leader in the research and understanding of microbiota with the discovery and worldwide distribution of the probiotic Saccharomyces boulardii CNCM I-745. In 2017, the Microbiota Institute was born to answer the rising interest in microbiota and encourage the dissemination of scientific information concerning its key role in health.

With dedicated experts worldwide, we provide referenced and reliable information  

We are a group of microbiota enthusiasts accompanied by more than 20 international experts and a pool of scientific journalists. In other words, we have the skills and we have the content to make microbiota worth reading.
