Special Issue Information
Alteration in the gut microbiota increases the pathogenic bacteria contributing to the development of gastrointestinal diseases, cancer, and metabolic disorders, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic liver disease, cardio-metabolic diseases, malnutrition, etc. Now research is trending toward the gut-brain axis, gut-liver axis, and gut-muscle axis to solve chronic or genetic disease conditions. Over the last five decades, it has been reported that the herbal plant has riches in dietary polyphenols to prevent metabolic disease through anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. Now it has been proven that nutritional polyphenols are directly acting in the modulation of gut microbiota and maintain the gut homeostasis condition. The polyphenols reduce the pathogenic bacteria consortium, maintain the small intestine integrity, and increase short-chain fatty acids production against chronic disease conditions. After SARS-CoV-2, the role of herbal plant/polyphenols increased towards maintaining intestinal homeostasis condition against dysbiosis condition and its role as pre and probiotics.
