New Approach in the Treatment of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD); Consumption of Resistant Starch Could Slow Progression of This Metabolic Disorder, Study Suggests

The results were published on September 5, 2023 in the research journal Cell Metabolism. The article is titled “Resistant Starch Decreases Intrahepatic Triglycerides in Patients with NAFLD Via Gut Microbiome Alterations.”
