Professor of Nutrition, Director of the Institute of Cardiometabolism and Nutrition (ICAN) linked to the University of Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris and head of a research group at INSERM; it is no surprise that Karine Clément is a well-known expert in metabolic diseases, nutrition and the role the gut microbiota plays in these conditions. Last year, she received…

For some time, science has known that exposure to vaginal microbiota is crucial for newborn health. When babies pass through the birth canal, they get a healthy dose of the mother’s bacteria that helps them establish their own collection of microbes and turn on their immune system. However, stress during pregnancy may alter the mother’s microbiome and that can interfere…

Digestion is extraordinarily complex, and there is a long list of ways it can go wrong. From constipation to bloating, digestive disorders can cause significant distress for infants and children as they develop. Fortunately, with emerging research on the microbiota, doctors, dietitians, and other healthcare professionals have a growing list of science-based strategies to use in addressing these problems. Healthcare…

Gut bacteria may play a crucial role in inducing anxiety and depression, according to a new study by researchers at McMaster University (Canada), published in the journal Nature Communications. The research, carried out in rodents, is the first of its kind to explore how gut microbiota works in the onset of altered behaviour deriving from early life stress. A team…

Study finds sex signature in gut microbiota   The gut microbiota of men and women are different, according to a recent study in Plos One, updating previous studies that saw no sex signature in the gut microbiota. Furthermore, the study also suggests adiposity and fibre intake may influence gut flora. The study’s authors, from the New York University School of…

If you were to take a gram of your own faeces and analyse it, you would discover that it contains a greater number of bacteria than there are humans on the planet. As surprising as it may seem, it’s true that the human body is home to over 100 trillion microorganisms, which, if gathered together on a scale would weigh…

We have known for some time that certain conditions like obesity, cancer and some autoimmune disorders like lupus may cause changes in the composition of our gut microbiota. We did not know, however, which conditions caused more modifications than others, what the effects were and whether these alterations could be used to identify those different illnesses. Two studies led by…

The gut microbiota - the community of hundreds of trillions of microorganisms living in our digestive system that perform a range of essential functions for our health - is a constant source of new and interesting content. Some months ago, we told you about how the Canadian Digestive Health Foundation was releasing a series of videos about these microscopic “superheroes”.…

The Yanomami indigenous people, who live in the Amazonian jungle in Venezuela, have the most diverse collection of bacteria ever found in humans, some of which had never been previously identified, says a study published in Science Advances. In fact, some of these new microbes have a positive effect on health, such as protecting carriers against kidney stones. This semi-nomadic…
