Most of us want to lower our cardiometabolic (CM) risk* in order to live long and healthy lives; that is, we want to have what doctors define as a low risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. What is the relationship between our gut microbiota and our cardiometabolic risk? Little is known so far, but the study we are sharing…
