Intestinal flora and human health

Intestinal flora and human health

Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition 5(1): 2-9

A brief review is presented including: ecological significance of intestinal flora; major bacterial groups composing the intestinal flora; development of the intestinal flora of infants; the intestinal flora of children and adults; the intestinal flora of elderly persons; disturbances in the intestinal flora; role of the intestinal flora in human health; metabolic profile of the intestinal flora; the intestinal flora may play an important role in the causation of cancer and aging; dietary control of intestinal flora for human health; effect of intake of dietary fibre or oligosaccharides; effect of yoghurt on human health; and the effect of oral administration of bifidobacteria on intestinal flora and intestinal metabolites.
