Redox balance at the gut level: from dietary antioxidants to microbiota

Speaker: Prof Peter SURAI, Feed-Food Ltd, Scotland, UK

Redox balance in the gut is critical to guarantee gut homeostasis. Lots of Reactive Oxygen Species are produced at the gut level in relationship with its high metabolism and exposure to mycotoxins, oxidized fat, microbiota. Maintaining the optimal balance between pro-oxidant and anti-oxidant compounds is thus important to guarantee gut efficacy. Selenium-based anti-oxidants have demonstrated their importance to protect gut from oxidation.
