Gut microbiota alterations in obesity remain the subject of debate. Writing in Nature, Vieira-Silva and colleagues found that the undesirable Bacteroides 2 enterotype was more frequent in people with a higher body mass index, but not if they were taking statins.

The last 9th Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit hold in Madrid on March updated the science behind diet, the balance between gut microbiota and the immune system, mental health, food intolerances and functional gut disorders, among others. Check out here the Summit’s official report.

With World Digestive Health Day and World Microbiome day just around the corner, Gut Microbiota for Health launches the #GutToKnowYou campaign. This two-month initiative aims to help people learn more about their gut microbiota and its importance for both health and quality of life.

On March 7th and 8th, scientists, healthcare professionals, dietitians, and digital opinion leaders from all over the world converged in Madrid, Spain for the 9th edition of the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit.

Gut Microbiota for Health platform grows on the way of connecting the dots between gut microbiota, diet, nutrition and a healthy gut. We interviewed Paul Enck and Rene van den Wijngaard about the evolution of the GMFH project, highlighting the milestones achieved and news to come.

Large inter-individual variability exists regarding how our gut microbiota responds to dietary intervention. New findings in mice and people with obesity show that ‘responders’ to inulin may be identifiable from their gut microbiota before they receive the intervention.
