Gut Microbiota: Ganoderma Lucidum, a New Prebiotic Agent to Treat Obesity?

Nathalie M Delzenne et al. Nat Rev Gastroenterol Hepatol. .

Abstract

Modulation of the gut microbiota is one of the promising tools to tackle obesity. Chang and colleagues have recently shown that an extract of the mushroom Ganoderma lucidum, a traditional remedy in Asia, can reduce obesity in mice by modulating the gut microbiota, thereby exerting a prebiotic effect.
