As we age, the integrity of the gut membrane declines, and it becomes more permeable; this is…

Today, we are going to take a look at the emerging theory that inflammaging, a chronic, age-related background of inflammation, is caused by alterations to the populations of intestinal microbes. What is inflammaging? Inflammaging is a term coined to describe the chronic, smoldering background of inflammation that accompanies the aging process. It is constant, low-grade…
