Here is what a new study has found. Washington: Turns out, various western diets could help fine-tune digestion and nutrient absorption. According to a study conducted by the Midwestern University, Western diets, which are high in fat and simple sugar, promote the growth of bacteria in the small intestine that increases fat digestion and absorption. The goals of the study was to determine if microbes were required for digestion and absorption of fats, to begin to learn which microbes were involved and to assess the role of diet-induced microbes on the digestion and uptake of fats. Kristina Martinez-Guryn led the work on this project in collaboration with the senior author, Eugene Chang. This work involved a series of complicated experiments to demonstrate that mice reared germ-free (GF) are protected from diet-induced obesity and are unable to absorb fat compared to conventionally-raised mice, also known as specific pathogen free (SPF) mice. When the germ-free animals are given small intestine microbiota from high-fat conditions, they are able to absorb fat. The findings from this work suggested that these microbes facilitate production and secretion of digestive enzymes into the small bowel. Those digestive enzymes break down dietary fat, enabling the rapid absorption of… Read full this story
