The human gut harbors over 100 trillion microbial cells, which has coevolved with humans for a mutually beneficial coexistence and plays an important role in health and disease. Normal gut microbiota influences your well-being by contributing to your nutrition, metabolism, physiology, and immune function. Disturbance of normal gut microbiota (dysbiosis) has been shown to play a role in many illnesses, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, and cardiovascular disease. Your gut health also plays an important role in living a healthy life with Chronic Kidney Disease.
