A new open access paper takes a look at tryptophan and the role that it plays in the dysfunction of the immune system in the context of the age-related changes that occur in the microbiome [1]. The microbiome The gut microbiome is a complex ecosystem of bacteria, archaea, eukarya, and viruses that live inside of…

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,…

The relationship between health and the microorganisms living in the gut has increasingly reached the spotlight in the last few years, and a new study led by researchers at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) sheds more light on the gut microbiome and how it can influence aging. The gut microbiome The gut microbiome is…

A new paper explores adjusting the types of bacteria in the gut as a potential way to improve health in older people. The microbiome The gut microbiome is a fascinating and diverse ecosystem filled with a myriad of bacteria, archaea, protists, fungi, and viruses that interact with each other and our bodies in diverse and…

A recent study suggests that circulating glucuronic acid may be a useful predictor of both lifespan and healthspan in humans and mice. What is glucuronic acid? Glucuronic acid is a metabolite of glucose and is critical for the detoxification of xenobiotic substances. These are compounds that are not naturally produced, should not normally be in…

A role for the gut microbiome on the health and functioning of many tissues, including the brain, liver, kidney, and adiposity, has been widely reported in the literature. Interestingly, 2019 might be the year that the role of the gut microbiome on skeletal muscle (i.e. the gut-muscle axis) comes into greater focus. The influence of…

At the Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019 conference, Dr. Micheal Lustgarten discussed the role of the gut microbiome in older adults, explaining that gut flora affect muscle strength and analyzing the species present in their native microbiome colonies. He also discussed Aging.ai and the blood chemistry of aging people, including albumin and micronutrients.

In a recent study, a team from the Neurobiota Research Center in Korea has discovered that reducing gut dysbiosis partially alleviates the cognitive impairment associated with Alzheimer’s disease. This may seem puzzling, as the gut and the brain are separate and relatively distant organs, but this research makes sense in the context of chronic inflammation….

Today, we want to highlight a recent study in which a team of researchers from UT Southwestern demonstrates how adjusting the gut microbiome in mice lowers the occurrence of cancer. What is the gut microbiome? The microbiome describes a varied community of bacteria, archaea, eukarya, and viruses that inhabit our gut. The four bacterial phyla…

A new study has discovered that the guts of elite athletes contain a particular type of bacteria that boosts exercise capacity. The bacteria are members of the genus Veillonella and are not present in the gut microbiomes of sedentary people. The microbiome The microbiome is an ever-changing ecosystem in the gut populated by a vast…
