Tahani Farooq Ahmed, Samah Omar Noor, Ahmed M. Al-Hejin

Abstract: A large collection of micro-organisms is present in the human gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The two main phyla are Bacteroides and firmicutes, respectively. The importance of gut microbiota for human health has been demonstrated in previous research. Also, several health problems related to changes in the intestinal microbiota have been reported. Focal research into the normal distribution of gut microbiota in Saudi women, therefore, needs to be conducted in this area. Studies have shown that in different geographical regions 'balanced gut microbiota' varies. A major piece of knowledge about normal intestinal diversity in healthy Saudi women will be included in this report. This may be used as a guide to various health issues for the research. The objective of our research is to test the intestinal microbial diversity of healthy Saudi women.
