In the study, mice with MS that were fed a diet rich in isoflavone — a plant-based compound — developed diverse and abundant gut bacteria, particularly isoflavone-digesting bacteria, which produced compounds that reduced inflammation in the brain and spinal cord. “Our new study provides evidence that the combination of dietary isoflavones and these isoflavone metabolizing gut bacteria may…
