The Challenge of Modulating the Gut Microbiota with Polyphenols in Metabolic Syndrome Patients

Polyphenols 2022 Speakers Juan Carlos EspinProf. Juan Carlos Espín, from the Spanish National Research Council, Spain, will join us this year to present a talk entitled “The Challenge of Modulating the Gut Microbiota with Polyphenols in Metabolic Syndrome Patients”.

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a group of metabolic traits that increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. These patients usually show a gut microbiota in dysbiosis, and thus, targeting the gut microbiota has been proposed to improve MetS traits. However, both MetS and gut dysbiosis are often misunderstood terms.

Prof. Espín's talk will overview the complex binomial MetS-gut microbiota and illustrate the challenge of modulating this so-called gut dysbiosis with a pomegranate-rich polyphenols extract in a randomized, placebo-controlled double-blind clinical trial in MetS patients under poly-pharmacological treatment.
