Recurrent abdominal pain, which refers to functional abdominal pain disorders under the Rome IV classification, is a common problem affecting up to 25% of school-age children. As an organic cause is missing with this condition, parents of children affected by functional abdominal pain consider diet and behavioral therapies as methods of managing recurring problems. Although the treatment of functional abdominal…

Synbiotics are substances that combine a probiotic and prebiotic. While Gibson and Roberfroid were the first to anticipate that the two could be combined as synbiotics back in 1995, research in the field has accelerated over the past decade. The reported scientific literature on synbiotics includes a wide range of studies carried out under different conditions. Recent human trials have…

Diet is known to be a major modulator of the gut microbiota composition. Dietary compounds such as protein, fat, fiber and polyphenols from our foods can affect the gut microbiota composition and microbial metabolites that can influence human health. For example, diets high in animal protein may lead to the production of harmful bacterial metabolites and high red meat consumption…

Although the gut microbiome remains relatively stable throughout adulthood, various environmental factors such as disease, and diet have been reported to affect the gut microbiota composition. Although host genotype may influence relative abundance of microbial taxa, only few associations between host genetics and gut microbiota diversity have been found. Thus, inter-individual gut microbiome variation remains largely unexplained. Researchers from different…
