Chocolate has a privileged place on the list of the most tempting foods. This food of the gods as tells its Latin name Theobroma cacao given by the noted Swedish nosologist Carl Linnaeus in 1753, has been ennobled in many countries around the globe as a curative drug, a culinary delight, and even a currency for commodity trading, retaining its…

If you took a microscope and zoomed on your intestine, you would find tens of trillions of bacteria that make up your gut microbiota. This community of microorganisms plays a key role in your health and wellbeing, as already reported on this blog, but it can also be affected by a range of external factors, including what we eat and…

As already mentioned on this blog, we are born sterile and our gut microbiota begins to develop at birth. We know that breast milk plays an essential role in the composition of gut microbiota in newborns. Spanish scientists from the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Science (IATA - Instituto de Agroquímica y Tecnología de los Alimentos) and the Center for…

It is now widely recognized that gut microbiota plays a key role in health and that changes in its composition could be at the origin of several chronic conditions including obesity, diabetes and inflammatory diseases. The composition of the intes healthy adults, however, is more stable compared to the one in children and older people. Moreover, studies have shown that…

In this interview, Prof. James Versalovic says that, as for the Human Genome Project, we’re only witnessing the first steps of gut microbiota research. In the course of the past few years, the scientific question has evolved from “what bacteria live with us?” to “what do they do?”, a key element when trying to define the gut microbiota as a multi-cellular microbial…

Great projects such as Human Microbiome Project and MetaHIT have arrived to the end in the last two years, but it doesn’t mean research on gut microbiota stops. A second generation of studies has started, evidencing the relevance of this topic. Scientist are focusing on gut microbiota, increasing the current knowledge about its importance and relation with our health and…

It is well known that brain levels of serotonin (also called the “happy hormone” as it is the major chemical involved in the regulation of mood and emotion) are altered in times of anxiety, depression, stress or excitement. However, a recent study has shown that early gut bacteria can be linked to happiness in adulthood. In other words, the presence…

For a large portion of society it is still unknown that a whole universe of life forms is active within our intestines, receiving the name of gut microbiota. The tens of trillions of bacteria composing this living community form together what is currently considered by experts as a “new organ” carrying out specific functions which are key to maintaining an…
