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 suggests that harmful changes to the population and diversity of our gut bacteria may occur when we are as young as our mid 30s, which can have serious implications for health and longevity. The microbiome The gut microbiome is a complex and ever-changing ecosystem populated by a myriad of archaea, eukarya, viruses,...
