ZBiotics is entering the market as the world's first maker of genetically engineered probiotics, sharing purposefully created solutions to help the body better cope with modern life. Specifically, the probiotics are designed to break down acetaldehyde, a by-product of alcohol that's associated with the discomfort that follows the day after drinking. According to ZBiotics, this is "the first time this sophisticated level of biotechnology has been applied to probiotics."
The creation of ZBiotics involved working with a naturally occurring probiotic bacteria and genetically engineering its DNA to replicate the natural process that happens in the liver during alcohol consumption—an enzyme is produced to break down acetaldehyde.
The sugar-free, zero-calorie and vegan-friendly probiotic beverage comes in a travel-ready bottle that's also packed with other simple ingredients like water and natural flavor.
