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…

The year 2012 is coming to an end and we would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone why we believe that it has been the year of the gut microbiota. Back in 2011, the European Society for Neurogastroenterology & Motility created the Gut Microbiota and Health Section to focus on this field. The launch of this new section,…
