Effects of microbiota “seeding” on gut health and egg production

This project will measure the effect of six weeks of egg consumption on adults’ gut microbiota composition and help understand how cognition, particularly decision-making performance, can be improved. Participants in the project will eat two eggs every day for six weeks and the effects over this period will be observed using microbiota analysis, cognitive decision-making assessments and dietary surveys.
