Prebiotics can improve sleep and boost stress resilience by influencing gut bacteria and the metabolites they produce - study.
In a mouse model, a mother's gut microbiota were seen to shape the metabolism of her offspring in later life.
Study study finds that eating a Mediterranean diet causes microbiome changes linked to improvements in cognitive function and memory, immunity and bone strength.
Researchers have studied a key difference between the microbiome of lab mice and humans caused by rodents' tendency to eat their own faeces, which they say could have wide-ranging implications to numerous research areas.
Study finds that gut microbiome composition and diversity are related to differences in personality, including sociability and neuroticism.
Study asks if the microbes in our digestive track can influence our mental state and, if so, how?
Project is the first to test green algae on symptoms related to human digestion.
Certain additives and artificial sweeteners can change microbial composition, say scientists, who note the altered profile is similar to that seen in those with inflammatory bowel disease or obesity.
Microbiome sequencing is ‘more accurate’ than full genome sequencing at distinguishing between healthy and ill people… and could predict whether you are likely to die in the next 15 years, two new papers suggest
Recent research indicates the gut microbiome could be a potential determinant of how a child’s environment ultimately impacts their neurobiological function and mental health outcomes.
When treating antibiotic-resistant infections, injecting patients with other people’s excrement - a fecal transplant - can be highly effective. Could it be the answer to dementia, anorexia and obesity too?
The barrier between mind and body appears to be crumbling. Clinical practice and public perception need to catch up.
A common bacteria that boosts digestive health can slow - and even reverse - build-up of a protein associated with Parkinson's, new research suggests.
Foods we eat commonly affect our gut microbiota. New research shows they do so by triggering the production of bacteriophage - viruses that infect and replicate inside bacteria.
Too much sugar can lead to weight gain, causes tooth decay and increases the risk of diabetes. But it also has another profound effect – it messes with your sleep, and in such a way that your sleeplessness will leave you with a craving for more sugar.
As food consumed in the U.S. becomes more and more processed, obesity may become more prevalent. Detailed recommendations to improve diet quality and overall nutrition are needed for consumers, who are prioritizing food that is cheaper and more convenient, but also highly processed.
Stress and poor nutrition probably increase risk of developing depressed mood.
While each person's gut microbiome is unique and tends to remain relatively stable, daily transient fluctuations are observed, and diet is a key modifiable factor.
Probiotic found to lessen symptoms of colic in babies, resulting in better sleep patterns.
When someone suffers from celiac disease – a digestive disorder caused by an autoimmune response to gluten – there is a clear link between migraine headaches and gluten.
