The human gut microbiota, that means the types of organisms that are present in an environmental habitat, consisting of trillions of microbial cells and thousands of bacterial species and it encompasses ~10−13 microorganisms. A growing body of evidence suggests that gut microbial communities play a fundamental role in many aspects of human health and diseases and, in turn, they are influenced by environment and nutritional behaviors. One of the most popular diets is the very low carbohydrate aka ketogenic diet. (KD). The KD is used for different aims: from weight loss to neurological diseases but its impact on microbiota is still poorly investigated but we know that ketones (produced during a KD) have positive effects on gut’s health. We investigated the complex interactions between ketogenic diet and gut microbiota and how this large network may influence human health. View this paper.
