Starting at birth and continuing through the life span, we live in harmony with the bacteria and other microorganisms we host in our gut – a dynamic collection called the gut microbiota. These hundreds of trillions of bacteria are crucial for our health. They play a key role in important body functions, from keeping the digestive system running to helping…

It’s a well-known story: Make a resolution to lose weight in the new year. Go on a diet and lose some kilos. Gradually slip back into the old eating patterns and gain all the weight back. Dieting—a temporary change in eating patterns, with restriction of certain ‘bad’ foods—isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Most of us already know it’s…

Until not so long, it was thought that disturbances in gut microbiota, what is medically called ‘dysbiosis’, were associated to disease. Nevertheless, scientists have discovered that there is a particular period in life where changes reveal to be key to health, and that moment is pregnancy. Researcher Omry Koren, from Bar Ilan University, in Israel, studies what happens to microbiota…

Digestion is extraordinarily complex, and there is a long list of ways it can go wrong. From constipation to bloating, digestive disorders can cause significant distress for infants and children as they develop. Fortunately, with emerging research on the microbiota, doctors, dietitians, and other healthcare professionals have a growing list of science-based strategies to use in addressing these problems. Healthcare…

Gut bacteria may play a crucial role in inducing anxiety and depression, according to a new study by researchers at McMaster University (Canada), published in the journal Nature Communications. The research, carried out in rodents, is the first of its kind to explore how gut microbiota works in the onset of altered behaviour deriving from early life stress. A team…

Abdominal pain, bloating, changes in stool frequency and consistency. These are just some of the symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), a chronic functional disorder whose origins are unknown. It has no known treatment, only recommendations to keep symptoms at bay. In Western countries, almost two out of ten gastroenterology consultations are motivated by this disorder.   Professor Magnus Simrén, researcher at…

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronical autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. It can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, the brain and other organs. In Spain, between forty and fifty thousand people suffer from lupus, according to the Spanish Association of Lupus (Federación Española de Lupus). A new research study, lead by researchers…
