Richard Frye, MD, PhD, FAAP, FAAN, CPI, discusses how Enteric (gut) Microbiome Modulates Mitochondrial Function.
Talking points include:
- The enteric (gut) microbiome has an important influence on health and disease states in humans.
- The enteric microbiome influences the human host using chemical mediators, some of which can directly affect mitochondrial function
- Short chain fatty acids produced by gut bacteria not only modulate mitochondrial function and cellular regulatory pathways, but can also be used as mitochondrial fuels.
