For many humans affected by obesity, the challenge of initial weight loss is less than the challenge of maintaining the weight loss over the long term. Studies in large populations have found that, while long-term maintenance of weight loss is possible, its prevalence in real life remains below satisfactory levels. Individuals may experience recurrent weight gain and re-emergence of metabolic…

Currently, a growing body of scientific evidence shows that flavonoids could exert a protective role against obesity-related pathologies by modulating intestinal inflammation, barrier integrity and gut microbiota composition and functionality. The MoBioFood (Molecular Bioactivity of Foods) Research Group from the Biochemistry and Biotechnology Department at the Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona (Spain) focuses on the interaction of flavonoids with…

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…

Previous studies have identified Akkermansia muciniphila as an important bacterium in metabolic health—able to prevent the development of obesity in animal models. Until now, however, its mechanisms were unclear and its effects had never been tested in humans. Now, a team led by Patrice D. Cani of Université catholique de Louvain (UCL; Belgium) and Willem de Vos of Wageningen University…
