In this review, the composition and diversity of the intestinal microbiome and its interaction with the host are discussed in depth, and the key role of the microbiome in maintaining intestinal balance, promoting nutrient absorption, and preventing and treating intestinal diseases is revealed. It also introduces the current hot areas of microbiome research, including the relationship between microbiome and chronic diseases, drug response, and the development and application prospects of microbiome regulation methods. These findings provide an important basis for further understanding of the physiological functions and regulatory mechanisms of the gut microbiome, as well as the development of microbiome based intestinal health intervention strategies.
