Food, probiotics and prebiotics to improve digestive and immune health through the intestinal microbiome
The microbiome is the set of microorganisms, their genomes, the environmental conditions that surround them, and the entire habitat in which they live. The microbial communities of the gut have been considered the forgotten organ by gastroenterologists. The great interest they have aroused in the last 20 years is explained by the introduction of new methodologies that have extraordinarily increased our perception of their diversity and the beneficial role they play in health. This suggests that the gut microbiome could be used to prevent, treat, or diagnose infectious, autoimmune, and metabolic processes.
Alteration in the balance of the intestinal microbiome conditions the overgrowth of pathogens and the loss of microbial diversity and accompanies digestive disorders and some immune-based diseases. Given the role that the intestinal microbiome plays in the development of these pathologies, their modification through food, probiotics, prebiotics and, in some cases, fecal transplantation, is considered as a tool that can help in the prevention and treatment. of the same.
Know the applications in the consultation of the tools available to study the intestinal microbiome
Identify the changes that the microbiome undergoes in health and disease
Learn what science has to say about the effectiveness and safety of food, prebiotics, probiotics, symbiotics, postbiotics, and fecal transplantation to manipulate the gut microbiome.
