Placebo Comparator: Placebo
On the Placebo arm of the intervention, participants will consume a placebo powder.
Placebo will be given in a powder form to mix with a beverage of one's choice.
Active Comparator: Dietary Fiber
On the Dietary Fiber arm of the intervention, participants will consume a fiber powder.
Other: Dietary Fiber
Dietary fiber will be given in a powder form to mix with a beverage of one's choice.
- Change in gut microbiota [ Time Frame: One month time frame for dietary fiber to affect the gut microbiota of participants ]Gene sequencing and data analysis will be conducted to explore the change in gut microbial abundance and diversity. Specifically, the primary outcome measure will be change in the proportion of Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, and/or Akkermansia muciniphila.
