Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can't be explained by any underlying medical condition. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity but doesn't improve with rest.1
Researchers of Cornell University report that the gut bacteria in chronic fatigue syndrome patients is not normal. This could potentially lead to gastrointestinal and inflammatory symptoms of the disease.2
Recent research also reveals the differences of gut bacteria between CFS patients with and without irritable bowel syndrome that may influence the severity of the disease.3
Tentatively, using probiotics, prebiotics (dietary fiber) and adjusting diet may have the positive impact on the condition.
