Detailed product leaflet see here.
Pack size: 28 sachets.
Created by CUHK, G-Niib Plus rebalances your gut microbiome, correcting dysbiosis which occurs when bad bacteria in your gut outweigh the good.
Dysbiosis is linked to more severe covid symptoms, development of long covid, and is a key signifier of low immunity. Research shows that 40% of the HK population experience moderate to severe dysbiosis.
After taking G-Niib formulas for two weeks, the symptoms of hospitalised covid patients resolved entirely. After 16 days, 88% of patients developed an antibody, which was 24% higher than the control group.
G-Niib features 2 billion CFU from 3 prebiotic and 3 probiotic strains, among which is bifidobacterium adolescentis, a strain key to boosting the efficacy of the covid vaccine. Studies show that up to 85% of healthy Hong Kongers could have either low or absent levels of b. adolescentis, making supplementation essential.
G-Niib offers therapeutic support for your gut microbiome, rebalancing the good bacteria in your gut for better immune defence.
You can purchase G-Niib Pro, the more potent version of this formula (10 billion CFU) via prescription from one of our naturopaths in-clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions about Immunity+ and Immunity Pro
Q1. How is this microbiome immunity formula different from other probiotics?
“G-NiiB Immunity +” microbiome immunity formula is based on innovative discoveries exclusively licensed from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. This microbiome formula is derived from big data analysis of novel virus patients and the healthy population. A clinical study by CUHK shows that significantly more novel virus patients who received the microbiome immunity formula had complete symptom resolution, reduced proinflammatory markers, increased favourable gut bacteria and neutralizing antibody, compared with subjects who did not have the formula. Another study by CUHK also shows that this formula helps enhance safety and efficacy of novel virus vaccine.
Q2. Why our formula only contains bifidobacteria? What is the benefit of bifidobacterial?
By using big data analysis Hong Kong and Asian population, CUHK has developed this microbiome immunity formula that targets to improve Asian immunity. All bifidobacteria in the formula is selected by the backup of big data analysis and has been clinically proved to have a remarkable performance in boosting immunity.
Bifidobacterial is efficient in restoring microbiome balance. By restoration of microbiome balance, we can boost our immunity, reduce inflammation, and promote recovery. Meanwhile, bifidobacteria can also promote the growth of other “good bacteria” like Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Eubacterium rectale, which are also important in boosting immunity.

Q13. Sometime “G-NiiB Immunity +” cannot be completely dissolved in the solution, would it affect the absorption or efficacy?
The product contains low water activity prebiotics xylooligosaccharides. If this ingredient is poured directly into water without stirring immediately, it may not be completely dissolved for a short time. This situation will not affect product efficacy. This is because it usually takes three to four hours for the product to enter the stomach and reach the gut. The gastric juice in the stomach, the digestive action of the stomach tumbling, and the intestinal juice in the intestine will also completely dissolve the product.
More importantly, probiotics only need to reach the guts to function. They do not need to be absorbed by the body, and whether they are dissolved will not have any effect on their efficacy.
Q14. What is gut microbiota?
Gut microbiota, which is the ecosystem of microorganisms in our gut, is a major determinant of human health. Emerging evidence indicates that the gut microbiota plays an important role in many conditions such as emerging viral infections, colorectal cancer, type 2 diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, depression, dementia, eczema, and allergy.
Q15. What is the importance of balanced gut microbiota?
Although the guts dominate 70% of our immunity, its importance to health has been overlooked for a long period. When the number of good bacteria in the body decreases and the number of bad bacteria increases, the guts microbiota loses its balance, and the body will have different symptoms to ring the alarm, mainly including:
- Decreased appetite
- Bad breath
- Nausea / nausea
- Abdominal pain (pulling, bursting, or cramping sensation)
- Disorders of excretion (diarrhoea and constipation, this symptom was detected in 96% of the tested patients)

A probiotic is a living microorganism, which improve our intestinal microbial balance; probiotics are non-pathogenic and are mostly can survive in stomach and pass to small bowel. They help to protect against disease and maintain wellbeing.
Our body harbours a great number of bacteria in the gut, especially in our large bowel.
