Abstract:   (5432 Views)
Obesity accompanies various metabolic and immunologic changes. Evidence from epidemiological studies in animal and human has linked obesity to impaired immunity. Over the past decade it has become clear that lactobacilli and other probiotic and commensal organisms can interact with mucosal immune cells or epithelial cells lining the mucosa to modulate specific functions of the mucosal immune system.The human gastrointestinal microbiota is a complex ecosystem of approximately 300–500 bacterial species comprising nearly two million genes (the “microbiome”). Indeed, the number of bacteria within the gut is about 10 times that of all of the cells in the human body. At birth, the entire intestinal tract is sterile bacteria enter the gut with the first feed. Gut microbiota composition can be different between healthy and obese persons. prebiotics, probiotics, and synbiotics are the instruments that modulate the intestinal bacteria in man both in health and pathologic conditions with promising preliminary results on prevention and therapy of obesity and related metabolic diseases.
