Modulating Microbial Diversity – Opportunities for Health & Wellbeing

Time: 12:00 pm
day: Day One


• The diversity within the microbiome plays a critical role in gut health and can prevent the growth of pathogenic strains of bacteria such as Salmonella, Campylobacter and Escherichia amongst others
• Increases in microbial diversity are well documented as being associated with an increased resistance to pathogen colonisation
• Nutritional intervention strategies to influence the microfloral diversity can have beneficial impacts on not just pathogen colonisation of the gut but can also positively influence the pathophysiological effects associated with pathogen overburden
