Naringin is a kind of multi-source food additive which has been explored broadly for its various biological activities and therapeutic potential. In the present study, the protective effect and mechanism of naringin on dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced ulcerative colitis (UC) in mice were investigated. The results showed that naringin significantly alleviated DSS-induced colitis symptoms, including disease activity index (DAI), colon length shortening, and colon pathological damage. The tissue and serum secretion of inflammatory cytokines, as well as the oxidative stress, were decreased accordingly upon naringin intervention. Naringin also decreased the proteins involved in inflammation and increased the expression of tight junction (TJ) proteins. Moreover, naringin increased the relative abundance of/and reduced the content ofto improve the intestinal flora disorder caused by DSS, which promotes the intestinal health of mice. It was concluded that naringin can significantly ameliorate the pathogenic symptoms of UC through inhibiting inflammatory response and regulating intestinal microbiota, which might be a promising natural therapeutic agent for the dietary treatment of UC and the improvement of intestinal symbiosis.
