New research from Monash University has shown that a single key molecule responsible for cell adhesion and a variety of other bodily functions is also critical in repairing the gut lining and that increasing the presence of this molecule accelerates its repair and regeneration. Supercharging stem cells The walls of the gut rely on a...

Can we use the bacteria in our gut to measure how biologically old we are? Some researchers certainly think we can and have developed a microbiome clock that examines the bacteria living in our guts to predict our age. The microbiome The gut microbiome is a complex and ever-changing ecosystem populated by a myriad of...

Researchers have demonstrated that age-related cognitive impairment and inflammation can be caused in young rats simply by giving them gut microbe populations from the guts of aged rats. The gut microbiome The microbiome describes the varied community of bacteria, archaea, eukarya, and viruses that inhabit our gut. The four bacterial phyla of Firmicutes, Bacteroidetes, Proteobacteria,...

A new review sheds light on the connection between chronic age-related inflammation, modern lifestyles, and the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Inflammaging is the link between the microbiome, aging, and Alzheimer's disease Aging is accompanied by a chronic, smoldering background of inflammation known as inflammaging. This backdrop of low-grade inflammation contributes significantly to mortality risk in...
