Health Benefits Study of New Z Trim Biofiber Gum

MUNDELEIN, Ill., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Z Trim Holdings, Inc. ("ZTH") (OTC Markets: ZTHO), an AgriTech company providing value-added, highly functional ingredients to a variety of industries, announced the imminent commencement of an animal feeding study by an independent laboratory to quantify the physiological effects of its recently launched ingredient, Biofiber Gum ("BFG"), on weight gain and cholesterol.  Prior studies that identified such health benefits, using similar but non-commercialized soluble fiber, are available upon request.  ZTH will further evaluate BFG's impact on Arabinoxylans Oligosaccharides ("AXOS") ratios. Of importance are the physiological effects of AXOS on:

  • liver fat;
  • cholesterol;
  • inflammatory cytokines;
  • bacteria for kidney, heart and colon health;
  • intestinal gene expression;
  • type II diabetes; and
  • obesity

Previous animal feeding studies on the benefits of ingesting AXOS (the major components of BFG) have shown improved colon health as well as positive effects on the immune system, obesity, cholesterol levels and type II diabetes.

"AXOS have recently attracted a lot of attention for their prebiotic activity and the corresponding high potential for health benefits," said Kyle Hanah, ZTH VP of Technology.   "For example," Hanah continued, "a recently submitted FDA-protocol to demonstrate the ability of AXOS to decrease the intestinal generation of toxins associated with kidney disease such as indoxyl sulfate and p-cresyl sulfate in healthy individuals, validates our keen interest in exploring the health benefits of BFG.  After significant R&D, when we finally discovered how to make a commercially viable BFG, we knew we were on to something exceptional that could improve the health of humans and animals alike."

"This is another key step in the rollout of our soluble fiber product, BFG.  We hope that positive data from this study will accelerate the conversations we have initiated with several prominent Food, Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical manufacturing companies," said Z Trim CEO Steve Cohen

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability.
