diet reduces gut bacteria

 

Researchers suggest that a “good” high fat diet may lead to specific changes in gut bacteria that could fight harmful inflammation and reduce symptoms of Crohn’s disease, a major discovery for patients suffering from chronic inflammatory bowel disorder.

Crohn’s disease affects the lining of the digestive tract and causes debilitating intestinal swelling, cramping and diarrhoea.

a diet of plant-derived “good” fats, including coconut oil or cocoa butter, drastically reduced bacterial diversity in mice with Crohn’s-like disease.

Mice fed beneficial fatty diets had up to thirty per cent fewer kinds of gut bacteria as those fed a normal diet, collectively resulting in a very different gut microbial composition.
