Although both diet and medications together have been documented to be the main exogenous factor that modulates the gut microbiota composition and functional diversity, previous research in professional athletes has found that physical activity status correlates with gut microbiota composition. However, no intervention studies have yet been investigated the effects of endurance-based exercise training on the composition, functional capacity and…

Fiber is good for health—that much we know. But for decades, scientists have been searching for the answer to a very simple question: how does dietary fiber manage to benefit the body? The answer turns out to be quite complicated. Currently, scientists think the gut microbiota plays a pivotal role in the how fibre benefits health—and it's mostly thanks to…

It has been previously found that exercise may play an important role in the overall health of the host by contributing to the diversity of gut microbiota. However, extreme dietary differences, especially high protein intakes, amongst the elite athletes studied may confound interpretations about the specific role of exercise in determining gut bacterial richness. How physical fitness contributes to intestinal…

It has been previously reported that the gut microbiota could be involved in the pathogenesis of metabolic diseases such as diabetes. A recent study, led by Dr. Wolfgang zu Castell from the Scientific Computing Research Unit at Helmholtz Zentrum München in Munich (Germany) has found that butyrate may have a protective effect in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes.  …
