    A metabolite called trimethylamine-N-Oxide (TMAO) that is produced by bacteria that occur naturally in our digestive tracts. Blood levels of TMAO were associated with subjects with cardiovascular disease, and in preclinical models, TMAO fostered cardiovascular disease development. These initial studies have been credited as the first discovery showing a causal link between gut microbes and heart disease.
