Bened Biomedical Co., Ltd. was founded in 2015 in Taipei, Taiwan as a spin-out company from National Yang-Ming University (NYMU) and specializes in the research and development of functional probiotic strains, most notably the psychobiotics. It focuses on advanced technologies and products in microbiome-based therapies for neuropsychological, allergic, immunological, metabolic, and aging-related disorders. Several milestones have been completed to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of Lactobacillus plantarum PS128®, through a series of successful clinical studies targeting either patients or healthy people. The company's mission is to develop best-of-breed psychobiotics to effectively prevent and treat neuropsychological disorders for the global community.
Bened Biomedical has successfully developed several psychobiotics in Asia. Based on past research and commercial performance, in 2020 Bened was named as one of the 10 key Players in Psychobiotic Supplements Market by Future Market Insights. We offer ODM service with our patented probiotics and supply the postbiotic raw material which is stable in tough conditions.
Lactobacillus plantarum PS128™ is a unique psychobiotic strain which can modulate microbiota-gut-brain axis by boosting and regulating dopamine and serotonin in the brain. PS128™ has several global patents in over 20 countries and many published studies, which proves its benefits to improve Autism, Parkinson's, IBS, Stress, Depress and Anxiety. PS128™ has also received public accolades including "Best Probiotic Product of the Year" awarded by Nutra Ingredients Asia in 2018.
VigorBiotics™ (Lactobacillus paracasei PS23) is another unique psychobiotic which is beneficial for brain health, memory improvement and anti-aging function differentiating from the gut health a basic probiotic can do. It acts as a postbiotic which is perfect as a functional additive to food as it can be stable at high temperature, moisture and tough pH value. It can easily bring functions to your foods (e.g., beverages, confectionaries, cereals, etc.).
