Occasional gastrointestinal symptoms are common in the otherwise healthy population. Most symptoms respond to dietary changes presumably via changes in the gut microbiota. Evidence shows that diet has a major impact on the gut microbiota and overall gastrointestinal health, and dietary interventions, such as consuming probiotics, especially Bifidobacterium, and the low oligo-, di-, and monosaccharide and polyol (FODMAP) diet, are…

It is clear that the gut plays an important role in health. Beyond digestion and absorption of nutrients, the intestine acts as a barrier and a filter, selecting for the good and eliminating the bad. Recent research has shown the importance of the gut microbiota for gut health, and diet remains one of the most powerful ways to influence this…

The intestinal barrier is the first line of defense against pathogens and antigens in the gut and it encompasses both physical and chemical properties. However, little is known about its critical function for maintaining health and how barrier function is influenced by the microbiota under healthy conditions or in physiological states.

Having a food sensitivity is life-altering. Avoiding a particular food or food component can be challenging and avoidance is currently our primary treatment option for this kind of condition. Given that one fifth of the population will be affected by food sensitivity in their lifetime, discovering alternatives to help manage them is critical. Food sensitivities have been increasing at a…

Can you tell the difference between food sensitivity and food intolerance? Both are garnering increasing media attention that can sometimes cause confusion, with inaccurate information possibly leading to self-diagnosis and unnecessary dietary restrictions. To shed some light on the topic, we have created an infographic highlighting the differences between the two conditions. Have a look at our new Gut Microbiota…
