Redefining Healthy Eating: The Influence of the Microbiome on Nutritional Recommendations
Explore the importance of the gut microbiome and redefine the concept of healthy eating through the lens of nutritional microbiology.
Objectives: In this comprehensive lecture, you will gain an in-depth understanding of what the gut microbiome is and its essential functions in human health. We will address how various dietary components impact the microbiome, subsequently affecting overall well-being. Additionally, you will also learn how current dietary guidelines intersect with microbiome health. The session will conclude with a discussion on how the field of nutritional microbiology could revolutionize our approach to healthy eating, emphasizing evidence-based insights into diet-microbiome interactions and their influence on human health.
