How Eating Whole-Rye or Wheat Foods Improves Microbiota

In the course of the study, the researchers investigated how whole grains influence different metabolites in the blood.

Study co-author Kati Hanhineva, Ph.D., explains: “Whole grain, on the other hand, is known to reduce the risk of diabetes, and on the basis of these new results, the effect could at least partly be due to a decrease in serotonin levels.”
