Date: 14/01/2019

New research shows that healthy infants have intestinal bacteria that prevent the development of food allergies.


3 January 2019 - MedicalXpress - Metabolic syndrome patients need more vitamin C to break cycle of antioxidant depletion

Date: 03/01/2019

A higher intake of vitamin C is crucial for metabolic syndrome patients trying to halt a potentially deadly cycle of antioxidant disruption and health-related problems, an Oregon State University researcher says.


Sugar targets gut microbe linked to lean and healthy people

Date: 18/12/2018

Sugar can silence a key protein required for colonization by a gut bacterium associated with lean and healthy individuals, according to a new Yale study.


11 December 2018 - MedicalXpress - These bacteria may be the key to treating clinical depression

Date: 11/12/2018

Scientists estimate that we share our bodies with 38 trillion organisms that play an integral part in keeping us healthy and making us who we are. They crawl across our skin, cling to our intestines, and generally call our bodies home.


5 December 2018 - Science Daily - Modeling the microbiome

Date: 05/12/2018

The gut microbiome - the world of microbes that inhabit the human intestinal tract - has captured the interest of scientists and clinicians for its critical role in health. However, parsing which of those microbes are responsible for effects on our wellbeing remains a mystery.


4 December 2018 - MedicalXpress - Microbial-based treatment reverses autism spectrum social deficits in mouse models

Date: 04/12/2018

Researchers report that administration of the bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri could lead to specific changes in the brain, holding hope for the development of novel therapies for neurological disorders such as autism, through modulating specific microbes in the gut.


How bacteria and breastmilk could be our best allies against allergy and asthma

Date: 26/11/2018

Researcher breaks new ground with findings on how breastmilk affects the baby's gut flora.


16 November 2018 - MedicalXpress - A low-gluten, high-fiber diet may be healthier than gluten-free

Date: 16/11/2018

When healthy people eat a low-gluten and fibre-rich diet compared with a high-gluten diet, they experience less intestinal discomfort including less bloating. Researchers at University of Copenhagen show that this is due to changes of the composition and function of gut bacteria.


1 November 2018 - The Conversation - Moving to another country could mess with your gut bacteria

Date: 01/11/2018

Moving to a new country can be challenging, not just for us but also for our bacteria. A compelling new study published in Cell suggests migration between certain countries can profoundly affect the bacteria that live in our digestive systems, with important implications for our health.


29 October 2018 - Nutraingredients - Big data insights driving funding for EU microbiome research - MyNewGut Project

Date: 29/10/2018

The number of health-related microbiome projects has almost doubled in the last three years, with EU funding almost twice that of non-health related gut research. "Personalised nutrition" is one of the endgames.


29 October 2018 - MedicalXpress - Breast milk, formula nurture similarities, differences in gut microbes

Date: 29/10/2018

A new study finds that while formula and breast milk encourage the growth of similar kinds of bacteria in babies' digestive tracts, the bacteria work differently. The health implications of these differences are as yet unclear.


Three distinct stages in infant microbiome development identified

Date: 24/10/2018

Researchers explored the sequence of microbial colonization in the infant gut through age 4 and found distinct stages of development in the microbiome that were associated with early life exposures.


24 October 2018 - Science Daily - Importance of infant diet in establishing a healthy gut

Date: 24/10/2018

12 October 2018 - MedicalXpress - Study: Ketogenic diet appears to prevent cognitive decline in mice

Date: 12/10/2018

We've all experienced a "gut feeling" - when we know deep down inside that something is true. That phenomenon aptly describes what scientists have now demonstrated: that the gut and the brain are more closely connected than we once thought, and in fact the health of one can affect the other.


11 October 2018 - Neuroscience News - Link Between Gut Flora and Multiple Sclerosis Discovered

Date: 11/10/2018

A new study reports T cells are activated in the intestines and migrate to the brain, causing an inflammatory cascade that may lead to multiple sclerosis. Researchers say the gut microbiome may play a more significant role in the development and progression of MS than previously believed.


2 October 2018 - MedicalXpress - Studies show connection between diet, cognitive function

Date: 02/10/2018
