Due to the “strong relationship” between diet, the disturbance of gut microbes, and fatty liver, “nutritional therapies focusing on remodulating the bacterial ecosystem appear to be particularly promising”.
In addition, mounting research has “highlighted the potential of prebiotics and probiotics in gut microbe restoration and among fatty liver patients”.
What’s the difference between prebiotics and probiotics?
The charity Guts UK explained that prebiotics can “feed and help our gut bacteria grow strong to benefit our overall ecosystem”.
Many plant foods contain prebiotics, such as: artichokes, asparagus, bananas, berries, tomatoes, garlic, onions, legumes, green vegetables and wholegrain cereals.
