Abstract: Traditional Chinese medicines (TCM) are increasingly used throughout the world for their effective and few side-effects. Though many studies have successfully proved their therapeutic effects both in vivo and in vitro, little researches were carried out to evaluate the interactions between TCM and intestinal microflora, which maybe the key point to reveal the beneficial efficacies of TCM. In this review, the adjustment effects of TCM on intestinal microflora published in recent decades were summarized and the mechanism between TCM and intestinal bacteria, as well as the development trend were proposed, too.
