Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an inflammatory condition considered one of the most common forms of senile dementia, and previous research in mice has shown that changes in gut bacteria could enhance inflammation and amyloidosis. Besides this, metabolic alterations such as insulin resistance and glucose metabolism dysregulation and altered lipid metabolism have also been linked to the development of AD. Studies…

Recent research has given important insights into the role of gut microbiota alterations in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Although motor deficits (including tremor, bradykinesia and rigidity) are the cardinal symptoms of PD, non-motor symptoms (NMS) (constipation, gastrointestinal disturbances, sleep disturbances and sensory alterations, among others) are also apparent and affect PD patients’ quality of life more negatively than the motor symptoms.…

It has been reported that nitrate-containing compounds found in certain foods—typically, processed meats, leafy vegetables, chocolate and some wines—as well as food preservatives and nitrate-containing drugs may trigger migraines as a side effect, but the possible mechanistic connection between nitrates, gut microbiome and the likelihood of experiencing migraines is unknown. A recent study, led by Rob Knight from the Department…

In both mice and humans the gut microbiota exhibits a circadian rhythm and it may be perturbed following circadian misalignment. Previous research has found that the circadian clock of the host may elicit responses from the circadian clocks of commensal gut bacteria. Although changes to the gut microbiota have been linked to the metabolic disturbances that occur after sleep deprivation…
