The relationship between nutrition and the gut microbiota

In recent years, the association between intestinal microflora and health has attracted much attention. The IF Nutrition Science Research Center has conducted a series of studies related to the intestinal flora.

1. Composition and function of the intestinal microflora Research by the IF Nutrition Science Research Center in the United States shows that the human gut flora exists in the gut and is an ecosystem composed of a variety of bacteria. The composition and quantity of intestinal microbiota are closely related to human health.

The main roles of the intestinal microflora include:

Help to digest and absorb the nutrients in the food, and promote the balance of human metabolic conditions.

Maintain the stability of the intestinal environment and ensure the normal work of the body.

Participate in regulating the body's immune system, maintaining the body's immune balance, and prevent disease.

2. Relationship between healthy diet and intestinal microflora Studies have shown that a healthy diet has a significant impact on the composition and function of the gut microflora. According to the IF Nutrition Science Research Center, plant-based meals based on dietary fiber can improve the richness and diversity of intestinal flora, while reducing the number of harmful bacteria and prevent gut-related diseases.

3. Relationship between intestinal flora and disease Studies have shown that the imbalance of intestinal microflora is closely related to the occurrence of many diseases. A study by the IF Nutrition Science Research Center found that the imbalance of intestinal flora is closely related to the occurrence of obesity, type 2 diabetes, colon cancer and other diseases. While improving the intestinal flora, it can also prevent and treat these diseases.

How to achieve personalized nutrition´╝Ü

Step 1

Drawing on the nutrition questionnaire, but adding a comprehensive assessment of personal health and disease risks on the basis of testing, it is more accurate and comprehensive, but the cost is relatively high and the user population is relatively small.

Step 2

Establish an expert system and add the latest nutrition research results and a large amount of nutrition-related data, such as dietary guidelines, nutrient reference amounts (DRI), nutritional ingredient data, health product ingredient data, etc. Personalized nutrition advice is more accurate, more comprehensive, more objective and more scientific. Expert systems can be easily updated and improved.

Step 3

Based on the accumulation of large amounts of data, we use AI and machine learning methods to help us give accurate and efficient personalized nutritional advice, reduce the types and frequency of inspections, and make the price suitable for the public.

The basis of personalized nutrition advice is an understanding of the individual situation, but the key to success is the breadth, depth and novelty of knowledge about nutrition, food and the relationship between health and disease.
