Shared Notes


  • [1.217
    - There is a correlation between higher gut microbiota diversity and higher vegetable intake, but only in participants who harbored an overrepresentation of Prevotella in their gut microbiota
  • [1.218
    - Recent exposure to antibiotics is the best predictor of decreased Prevotella.
  • - There is a clear association between decreased normalised abundance of Prevotella in faecal samples collected at 12 months of age and increased behavioural problems at 2 years.
  • [1.219
    - Prevotella are observed with carbohydrate (fiber) consumption
  • - Prevotella are more common in non-Westernized populations consuming a plant-rich diet or in Western populations with high adherence to a Mediterranean or vegetarian diet
  • [1.220
    - Prevotella grows best on carbohydrates.
