Gut brain inflammation
A recent review published in Cureus shows why fecal microbial transplantation (FMT) might be able to help sufferers of Alzheimer's disease, showing how tightly the gut and brain are intertwined. Why would this ever work? The gut and brain are closely linked through biochemistry, and last month, we published an article about how the gut...
Three Baby Mice
A study published in Cell Reports has shown that early-life exposure to antibiotics that destroy the gut flora can harm the lifelong development of mice, including lifespan. Three groups with different microbiota To begin the study, the researchers fed 20 baby mice, as well as their mothers, amoxicillin and neomycin, and they established a control...
Gut Brain Connection
Aging causes changes to the diversity and numbers of bacteria that live in our guts, and it has become a growing area of interest for researchers in recent years. The gut microbiome The gut microbiome is a constantly changing environment populated by vast numbers and types of archaea, eukarya, viruses, and bacteria. It is a...
X10 Microbiome
On this episode of X10, we talk about the how the gut microbiome is connected with aging and the role of gut bacteria in the immune response. Script You've probably heard about the gut microbiome, the community of countless microbes living in your intestines, as it's been a hot topic for several years. There's regular...
Gut bacteria
Most of the genetic changes associated with increasing age disappear in the absence of gut bacteria, according to a new fruit fly study [1]. It’s a pretty surprising finding, and while there are some important implications, it’s also a bit challenging to interpret. A flat aging line The experiment itself was relatively straightforward. A team...
Intestinal bacteria
We have talked about the aging of the microbiome, the collective bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses that live on and inside our bodies, many times over the last few years. There has been increasing interest in the influence of this microbial community, especially those living in the gut, in the context of aging and disease....
