Over the past decade of studying the gut microbiome, we have learned that environmental factors related to diet and drugs are major determinants of gut microbiota composition and that their effects outweigh the influence of genetics. The GMFH publishing team is pleased to share a new summary document on the latest evidence regarding the influencing role of diet and probiotics…

Alongside bacterial members of the gut microbiota, scientists have now started exploring archaea, microbial eukaryotes (fungi and protozoa) and viruses present in the gut. Among them, the community of viruses (also called the human gut phageome) offers a promising area of research. Even though phages were first identified 100 years ago by Félix d’Herelle, it was not until recently that…

Just like other body parts and fluids in contact with the external environment, breast milk has its own microbiome that plays a key role in infant health by helping to establish a baby's gut microbiota. Over the past decade, new genomic techniques have increased our understanding of the human milk microbiome and the factors influencing its composition and activity. However,…

Until now, the gut microbiome has been an underexplored factor in the development of anorexia nervosa (AN). However, scientists agree that the time has come to start considering our microbiota as a new player in the current treatment of AN patients, given the close interactions between intestinal bacteria and mood, behavior, appetite and gastrointestinal physiology. A new narrative review, led…

What do yogurt, beer, and sourdough bread, have in common? They are all foods that depend on the activity of microorganisms for their taste, texture, and digestibility. In other words, they are fermented foods. Does the fact that these foods are made with the help of bacteria or yeasts also mean that they are probiotic foods? The answer is no!…

How the gut microbiota can relate to preventing and treating gut-related symptoms and what is the role that dietitians can play as gut health ambassadors were some of the key subjects discussed in the scientific session on gut health during the 11th conference of EFAD, which was held in Rotterdam (the Netherlands) on September 29. EFAD is a federation of local dietetic…

Besides diet, several other factors such as host genetics, ethnicity, age, medication, chronic diseases, physical exercise, stress, and sleep can all affect gut microbial composition. During the first 2 to 3 years of life, gut microbiota modulation appears to play a critical in later health outcomes. However, little is known about the impact of early lifestyle events on the gut…

Although gut microbiota maturation is a dynamic process apparent across a lifetime, the first two to three years of life may represent the most critical period for dietary interventions that target the microbiota and its contribution to improving child growth and brain development. One area of current microbiome research studies the close relationship between the development of the gut and…
