Microbiota intestinale ed esercizio fisico: nuova possibile area di intervento?

Sommario

Il microbiota intestinale è un ecosistema eterogeneo che ospita la maggior parte delle specie batteriche nell’uomo, e l’attività fisica sembra essere un potenziale fattore esterno in grado di influenzarne la biodiversità, sia in termini qualitativi che quantitativi. Ad oggi non è ancora chiaro quali popolazioni microbiche subiscano variazioni e in che modo, e ulteriori ricerche serviranno per comprendere se queste modificazioni abbiano effettivamente un impatto sulla promozione della salute.
