Researchers have taken a look at how caloric restriction seems to improve intestinal stem cell function in a new open-access study. Inflammaging is a precursor of age-related diseases The lining of the intestines helps to prevent the entry of microbes and unwanted molecules into the bloodstream beyond; however, as we age, the integrity of this...

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...

A new study has seen researchers alter the balance of harmful bacteria in the gut microbiome to reduce cholesterol and reverse atherosclerosis in mice fed a high-fat Western diet. What is the gut microbiome? The gut microbiome describes the varied community of bacteria, archaea, eukarya, and viruses that inhabit our gut. The four bacterial phyla...

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...

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...

A new study has shown how the microbiome, the complex ecosystem of microbes that inhabit our digestive system, protects the health of the gut from the very moment we are born. What is the microbiome? The gut microbiome is a complex and ever-changing ecosystem populated by a myriad of archaea, eukarya, viruses, and bacteria. Four...
