About the solution

Alba Health is on a mission to prioritize children's well-being by providing them with the healthiest possible start in life.

Their vision revolves around a world where chronic diseases can be both prevented and effectively addressed, leveraging the power of microbiome science and artificial intelligence. The core of their product is a specialized gut microbiome test tailored to children from newborns to 4-year-olds.

First: Albahealth sends an easy-to-use stool test kit (5 minutes to complete) and the families send it back to them for free, after that they analyze the baby's microbiome in a certified lab and send back the detailed results.

They understand that the formative years of life lay the foundation for future health, shaping aspects such as the immune system, metabolism, and cognitive development. During this crucial period, the gut microbiome plays a pivotal role. Extensive research has linked the gut microbiome to health risks, chronic conditions, and various symptoms. Alba Health aims to harness this knowledge to foster a healthier future for children by enabling early intervention and prevention.

Nora Cavani, with her background in Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Engineering, and Professor Emeritus Willem de Vos, a renowned figure in Microbiome Science, spearhead Alba Health's mission. Willem's extensive research in microbiome science, particularly focusing on the gut microbiome's impact on early-life health and chronic conditions, has laid the groundwork for this venture. Together, they aim to address the critical question of how diseases may originate in the first years of life and to pioneer gut microbiome restoration after C-sections and antibiotic treatments.

Nora's personal experience with food allergies and eczema fuels her commitment to understanding the role of lifestyle, especially diet, in the onset of chronic conditions.

In 2022, Alba Health was established to empower families to adopt a healthy lifestyle while collecting anonymous data to advance the prevention of chronic diseases, ensuring a brighter and healthier future for the youngest members of our society.
