Curious about the inner workings of the intestines in which the body interacts with the microbiome to influence gut function?

Please join us for a webinar on June 8 from 6:00-7:00 pm ET with Dr. Kyle Berean of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (Australia), ATMO Biosciences and the University of New South Wales.

A video of the event is available here.

 The inner workings of the intestines, in which the body and microbiome intersect to influence gut function and system health, remain elusive. Carbon dioxide, hydrogen, methane and hydrogen sulfide, as well as a variety of trace gases, are generated by the chemical interactions and microbiota within the gut. Profiling these internal gases and their responses to dietary changes can reveal the products and functions of the gut microbiota and their influence on human health. Gases can, according to their type, concentration, and volume, induce or relieve abdominal symptoms, and might also have physiological, pathogenic and therapeutic effects. Thus, profiling and modulating internal gases could be powerful tools for disease prevention and/or therapy.

This webinar is being co-organized with the American Society for Nutrition.
