Gut Bacteria Metabolism

Researchers Discover Role of Gut Bacteria Metabolism in Gut Health

Researchers at UC Davis Health, California have discovered that feeding gut microbes dietary fiber can help them maintain gastrointestinal (GI) health. The research was published on August 11 in the journal Science. The result is significant for scientists in identifying a potential therapeutic target for favorably influencing gut microbiota in edging out harmful bacteria. Furthermore, it expand our understanding of the puzzling interplay between tens of trillions of bacteria and
