Ever wonder why the diet your doctor prescribed, which you followed for several months, failed to work despite all your efforts? Or why although you eat healthily you can’t lose a measly pound while your gym mates are all slimming down? Researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel have now discovered and proven for the first time the…

In the human body, immune system activity needs to be set at just the right level. Like a volume dial that must be set loud enough to hear, but not so loud that the neighbours come knocking, immune responses can be neither too high nor too low. High activity means the body starts attacking its own healthy tissues, and low…

Since ancient times, many cultures around the world have included foods rich in microbes - friendly bacteria able to give a helping hand to our microbiota and overall health – in their traditional diet. Scientists are starting to better understand the role of these microorganisms and how they can have a positive impact on the health of our gut. At…

Butterflies in your stomach before a big presentation is a familiar experience, but surprisingly, scientists don't yet know exactly how this happens. The gut-brain axis – the brain's influence on the gastrointestinal tract and the other way around – is now a subject of keen scientific interest. A recent review, published in Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, covered what we know…

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…

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…
