Most of the modern human diseases have been linked to human microbiomes present in the human intestines or the gut. The microbiome is an entire ecosystem composed of trillions of diverse organisms that function to break down dietary fiber, support the health of our immune system and manufactures several essential vitamins. With so many important roles that it has in protecting general health, there is increasing attention to the role that diet plays in maintaining the robustness of the microbiome. Additionally, research conducted by Council of Scientific and Industrial Research India (CSIR), has thrown up correlations between various diseases and the microbes, including metabolism-related health issues like irritable bowel syndrome, heart disorders and even brain-related disorders like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.
