A growing number of scientific studies show diet can affect health through the gut microbiota. “By modulating your diet, you can also modulate your microbes. Microbes can contribute to the severity or the onset of a disease. But if your diet is wrong or unhealthy, that is the first cause,” highlights Clara Belzer. Food and dietary patterns actually have differing…

What happens if we don’t feed our gut microbiota? According to Mahesh Desai, researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Health, the gut barrier might be destroyed or eroded and that could potentially lead to intestinal diseases. “We have a gut microbiota that is evolved to feed on the fibers that we eat, but it has also evolved to feed on…

A growing number of scientific studies show the diet can affect health through the gut microbiota. However, foods and dietary patterns actually have differing effects on the gut microbiota between individuals. In modulating the gut microbiota of infants, prebiotics and probiotics could turn out to be useful. Treatments with specific probiotics could help regulate an unbalanced microbiota and thus improve,…
