    Abstract
    Various body indexes, especially body fat percentage , are widely used as effective indicators to measure our health. BFP is used in medicine to assess obesity, which is a body fat mass disorder accompanied with changes of the gut microbiota. However, the relationship between BFP and the gut microbiota has not been studied so far. To address this problem, we examined how gut microbiota and metabolome associated with body indices in healthy people. Microbial and metabolomics data based on 16S rDNA sequencing and LC-MS were obtained from stool samples of 20 healthy adults...
