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…

Last July, microbiologist Dr. Jonathan Eisen gave an illuminating speech at TEDMed where he explained the importance of our microbial community. “Our bodies are covered in a sea of microbes, he explained, both the pathogens that make us sick and the “good” microbes, about which we know less, that might be keeping us healthy”. Jonathan Eisen studies the ecology and evolution…

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…

Did you know that we can find more than 100 trillion of good bacteria in our body? According to a study carried out by more than 80 universities and 200 researchers, humans are made up of more microbes than human cells. Although these figures show us the importance of microbes in our health, the knowledge in that field remained largely…
