The Gut Microbiome: Exploring the Connection between Microbes, Diet, and Health

Greenwood Publishing Group,  2017

The gut microbiome is known as the forgotten organ because of its immense influence on many systems in the body. Gut microbes regulate our natural immune responses and determine risk for developing chronic illness. For example, altered gut microbiota are associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and may also have implications for neurological disorders like Autism or Parkinson's disease. Cutting edge research has even identified links between microbes and our mood and mental health. After detailing the many functions of the gut microbiota, this book looks at several causes of imbalance in the microbiome, such as diet and other lifestyle factors. It also highlights dietary interventions that support beneficial microbes to promote healthy metabolism, immunity, and gastrointestinal function.
