UVB exposures over a one-week increased the gut microbiota diversity of the group with vitamin D insufficiency to the same level as that of the group that started the study with sufficient serum vitamin D levels. The exposure to UVB positively influenced key gut microbiota such as Lachnospira and Fusicatenibacter.
This is the first study that reports changes in the human gut microbiota in response to UVB light. As decreased exposure to UVB light. Decreased vitamin D production has been associated with the rise in chronic inflammatory diseases. Previous studies relating UVB light to gut microbiota have been conducted on mice. Herbsprout previously reported on UBC's earlier research on the subject. Visit this link to read more, http://en.bloguru.com/healthtech/359925/how-does-ultraviolet-light-influence-our.
