    Impact of supplementation with a food-derived microbial community on obesity-associated inflammation and gut microbiota composition

    Obesity is a complex pathology associated with dysbiosis, metabolic alterations, and low-grade chronic inflammation promoted by immune cells, infiltrating and populating the adipose tissue. Probiotic supplemen...
