The Salty Gut: Effects of High Dietary Salt Intake on the Gut Microbiota

Gut microbiota has a role in cardiovascular disease and recent findings in rodents show dietary salt can negatively alter gut microbiota composition. High salt intake is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Americans consume dietary salt in excess of Dietary Guidelines and American Heart Association recommendations. The objective of this project is to investigate the influence of high dietary salt consumption on the gut microbiota composition in men and women.
