Deep inside your small intestine is a region that’s critical in the body’s immune system: the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). At this site, your body’s cells interact with both microbes and immune cells, and the results of their interactions decide whether you will tolerate the things encountered in the gut—whether a particular food molecule or a foreign microbe—or alternatively, whether…

Research & Practice

A diet based on fibre-rich foods exerts benefits including not only improved gut health through conserving and restoring the human gut microbiome, but also potential beneficial effects on enteric infections, food allergies, metabolic disorders and even brain health. Besides this, dietary fibre has also been related to lower risk of all-cause mortality. However, the mechanisms underlying these effects have not…

Gut Bacteria

Although previous research has shown that both diet and medications are the primary factors involved in the modulation of both structural and functional capacity of the human gut microbiota, dietary intervention studies often do not show reliable changes in the gut microbiota from an intervention. A review, led by Dr. Genelle Healey from the Massey Institute of Food Science and…

Although both diet and medications together have been documented to be the main exogenous factor that modulates the gut microbiota composition and functional diversity, previous research in professional athletes has found that physical activity status correlates with gut microbiota composition. However, no intervention studies have yet been investigated the effects of endurance-based exercise training on the composition, functional capacity and…

Although plenty of research in both animal models and humans during the last decade has explored the relationship between the gut microbiota and obesity and related metabolic disorders, the clinically relevant contribution of gut microbiota to obesity and related metabolic disorders is still unknown. The relationship between obesity and metabolic diseases has been recently covered in a review article by…

Many questions arise when it comes to probiotics and gut microbiota. By what mechanisms of action can probiotics affect host health? What is the role of probiotics in preventing healthcare-associated infections? Do probiotics affect the intestinal barrier? The Gut Microbiota for Health publishing team has asked a selection of world-leading experts to weigh in on the answers, and we're pleased…
