@Gondwanaland You always have such interesting things to share!
Yes very interesting and a good summary updating and expanding the prebiotic concept. All that excess riboflavin in 50 or 100 mg pills isn't wasted!
They don't mention it here but I think thiols in the form of cysteine or glutathione are needed in addition to riboflavin as part of the mechanism which allows the strict anaerobe F. prausnitzii to grow in an oxygen enriched environment. See here.
The weird thing for me is that when i eat classic prebiotics - onion, garlic, etc - my symptoms get way worse.
I imagine them as like fertiliser. You throw fertiliser on a well-balanced eco system and it thrives. you throw it on a garden full of weeds (my gut) and things only get more out of hand!
I've tried a lot of interventions from probiotics, dietary modification and fasting. There's an interesting question of what is keeping my gut microbiome from returning to the eco-system state.
