Health of your gut plays an important role in your general well-being, but many people still don’t understand the full impact it makes. Now, scientists are able, through modern scientific advances, to isolate fiber that is prebiotic and, as such, plays a critical role in cancer prevention. The study is not without its limitation, and additional testing would be needed to confirm the results and eliminate any additional factors that may have been involved in the original study.
- The Whistler Centre for Carbohydrate Research, at Purdue University, has new data specific to human gut health.
- The Purdue University research team has arrived at a way to select prebiotic fibres that support the propagation of beneficial bacteria in the human gut microbiome.
- These pre-selected fibres are capable, per the Whistler Centre team, of doing their due diligence in any microbial environment.
“The in vitro investigation into the impact of fibre specificity on microbiota structure indicates that fibres with high-specificity (and specifically insoluble ?-glucan) can potentially bypass the competitive jostling for fibre utilization to increase target bacteria and promote significant shifts in gut microbial.”
