Postbiotics to benefit everybody – health promotion by HYA, a gut microbial lipid metabolite –

Our intestine is inhabited by a large diverse microbiota. It is important to reveal gut microbial metabolism of food component and understand the effects of the metabolites. The newly found gut microbial lipid metabolites, HYA, will promote our health and expand our knowledge of the molecular basis on the mutual relationship between the host and the gut microbiota. The progress could open a new concept “postbiotics to benefit everybody”.
