Diet is a crucial target for the improvement of human health. In the modern world, diets are diverse, and diet-related diseases are becoming more and more common. In particular, it is becoming increasingly apparent that stool weight, as well as the bacteria that live in our gut, are strongly linked to both diet and health. What we eat has a great impact on the composition of the bacteria of our gut. In turn, the gut bacteria play diverse roles in human health, influencing not only our gut but also our heart health, and even our brain health. Therefore, optimising our gut bacterial composition is vital to our health and wellbeing.
This research study aims to investigate the effects of fruit products on the gut symptoms, gut function and gut bacteria in people with constipation.
