The relationship between diet and the diversity and function of the intestinal microbiome and its importance for human health is currently the subject of many studies. The type and proportion of microorganisms found in the intestines can determine the energy balance of the host. Intestinal microorganisms perform many important functions, one of which is participation in metabolic processes, e.g., in the production of short-chain fatty acids—SCFAs (also called volatile fatty acids). These acids… Expand

Diet, Probiotics and Physical Activity: The Right Allies for a Healthy Microbiota
TLDR
The ways in which good living habits, correct nutrients, and constant aerobic activity in chronic and immune conditions, can modify gut microbiota and microbiome characteristics, as well as the relationship between intestinal function and human health are shown. Expand
Modulation of the Gut Microbiota Structure with Probiotics and Isoflavone Alleviates Metabolic Disorder in Ovariectomized Mice

  • 2021
TLDR
The results demonstrate that Bifidobacterium longum 15M1 can reverse menopausal obesity, whilst the combination of Lactobacillus plantarum 30M5 and a SIF diet was more effective in alleviating menopausal lipid metabolism disorder than either components alone. Expand
Low-Dose Lactulose as a Prebiotic for Improved Gut Health and Enhanced Mineral Absorption
TLDR
Preclinical and clinical evidence showing that low-dose lactulose stimulates the growth of health-promoting gut bacteria, inhibits the grow of pathogenic bacteria, increases the production of beneficial metabolites, improves mineral absorption, and has good overall tolerability is provided. Expand

This review covers current knowledge of selenium in the dietary intake, its bioavailability, metabolism, functions, biomarkers, supplementation and toxicity, as well as its relationship with diseasesExpand
Nutritional Effects on the Gut Microbiome & the Brain-Gut Axis: Unlocking the Therapeutic and Preventative Potential of Nutrition for Gut Dysbiosis Associated Diseases
Diet plays a pivotal role in the overall health of an individual. Not only does it help carry out and regulate certain physiological functions, but it also can determine the composition of the gutExpand
Effects of sodium butyrate supplementation on inflammation, gut microbiota, and short‐chain fatty acids in Helicobacter pylori‐infected mice
TLDR
The effects of sodium butyrate on the main virulence factors of H.pylori, H. pylori‐induced inflammation, and gut microbiota composition remain unclear. Expand
Analysis of jejunum microbiota of HFD/STZ diabetic rats.
TLDR
Interestingly, it was found that several bacteria were negatively correlated with HOMA-IR, fasting blood glucose, body weight, and intestinal permeability, which are of potential for further studies. Expand

Immunomodulatory potential of gut microbiome-derived short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs).
TLDR
Analysis of microbial metabolites, among them short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), and disruption of intestinal microbiota homeostasis in terms of their effects on molecular regulatory mechanisms of immune reactions will surely improve the understanding of the etiology of many common diseases. Expand
Intestinal Short Chain Fatty Acids and their Link with Diet and Human Health
TLDR
Short chain fatty acids have distinct physiological effects: they contribute to shaping the gut environment, influence the physiology of the colon, they can be used as energy sources by host cells and the intestinal microbiota and they also participate in different host-signaling mechanisms. Expand
Beneficial effects on host energy metabolism of short-chain fatty acids and vitamins produced by commensal and probiotic bacteria
TLDR
It is shown that these vitamins and SCFA producing bacteria could be used as tools to recover energy intakes by either optimizing ATP production from foods or by the fermentation of certain fibers in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). Expand
Formation of short chain fatty acids by the gut microbiota and their impact on human metabolism
TLDR
This review aims to pull together recent findings on the role of SCFA in human metabolism to highlight the multi-faceted role ofSCFA on different metabolic systems. Expand
Effects of Probiotics, Prebiotics, and Synbiotics on Human Health
TLDR
This paper provides a review of available information and summarises the current knowledge on the effects of probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics on human health, and verified study results proving their efficacy in human nutrition are presented. Expand
The Effect of Selected Synbiotics on Microbial Composition and Short-Chain Fatty Acid Production in a Model System of the Human Colon
TLDR
The results of this study show that all synbiotic combinations investigated are able to shift the predominant bacteria and the production of SCFA of fecal microbiota in a model system of the human colon, thereby potentially being able to manipulate the microbiome in a way connected to human health. Expand
Human-origin probiotic cocktail increases short-chain fatty acid production via modulation of mice and human gut microbiome
TLDR
Results indicate that human-origin probiotic lactobacilli and enterococci could ameliorate gut microbiome dysbiosis and hence may prove to be a potential therapy for diseases involving reduced SCFAs production in the gut. Expand
Intestinal health functions of colonic microbial metabolites: a review.
TLDR
It is concluded that physiological levels of SCFA are vital for the health and well-being of the host and that the presence of carbohydrates (dietary fibre, prebiotics) is essential to favour the metabolic activity in the direction of carbohydrate fermentation. Expand
Targeting gut microbiota in obesity: effects of prebiotics and probiotics
TLDR
The gut microbiota is a potential nutritional and pharmacological target in the management of obesity and obesity-related disorders and suggests that specific phyla, classes or species of bacteria, or bacterial metabolic activities could be beneficial or detrimental to patients with obesity. Expand
Links between diet, gut microbiota composition and gut metabolism
TLDR
Predicting the impact of diet upon such a complex and interactive system as the human gut microbiota not only requires more information on the component groups involved but, increasingly, the integration of such information through modelling approaches. Expand
