Exercise changes gut microbial composition independent of diet, team reports


Recommended Posts

An interesting article in

University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Health News


It alleges to show that mice (and people) on the same diet, that exercise, have improvements

in their gut microbiota, over sedentary mice (and people). Interestingly, the improvement that

comes from exercise is much more pronounced in lean, vs obese, subjects.




Note: The article was brought to my attention by my wife, who is a Nurse Practitioner specialized in gastroenterology. (Unlike most of her colleagues, she

tries to get her patients to improve their diet, with more fruits and vegetables.
