The publishing team of Gut Microbiota for Health is pleased to announce that, at this important upcoming conference, the GMFH initiative has collaborated with the event’s organizers to develop a session on gut microbiota and nutrition.

A recent review by Dr. Stacey Lockyer from the British Nutrition Foundation in London (United Kingdom) and Dr. Anne Nugent from the University College Dublin in Dublin (Ireland) summarises reported health effects of RS and explores the potential mechanisms of action that underpin them.

A recent study, led by Dr. Catherine Stanton from the Teagasc Moorepark Food Research Centre and APC Microbiome Institute from the University College Cork in Cork (Ireland), has found that neurobehavioural changes induced by altering n-3 PUFA status are closely linked to alterations in gut microbiota composition and inflammation in mice.

Now a recent study, led by Dr. Nicola Santoro from the Department of Paediatrics at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut (USA), has found that the gut microbiota of obese youth may drive a higher accumulation of energy than that of lean adolescents through an elevated production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) and a higher capability to oxidize carbohydrates.
