Opting to follow a vegetarian diet is becoming a growing trend in Western countries, but is it a healthy choice as well? What impact does a plant-based diet have on the gut microbiota compared with an omnivorous one? Suzanne Devkota, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Gastroenterology division at Cedars Sinai Medical Centre (USA), is interested about the convergence of food, health…

How do sports impact our gut microbiota? We know that diet affects our overall health. We also know that exercise does the same: It affects our immune system and gut permeability, also has anti-inflammatory effects. Professor Paul Cotter, an investigator at APC Microbiome Ireland, studies the microbiome of professional athletes to identify the relationship between specific sports and microbiome changes.…

We all know that probiotics are beneficial bacteria for our health. Moreover, to be considered probiotics, the strains used must have demonstrated their benefit in the host. You may have purchased fermented products containing probiotics sometimes in your life, but did you know that there are many probiotics and that, while they share some common properties, they differ in health…

Manon Oliero
Manon Oliero is starting her PhD about gut microbiota, nutrition and cancer at the CRCHUM of Montreal. Before, she specialized in the gut microbiota and nutrition field by obtaining a master’s degree in Paris in microbiology and a food and health engineer degree in Beauvais. She first meets the scientific communication world in Barcelona after her work on gut microbiota and diet at the VHIR. She is really concern about health of the population and believe that with a better diet and lifestyle we can all make ourselves healthier.

In Canada, 3,500 kids and their families are part of the CHILD Cohort Study, which is a large research project that is figuring out how the human microbiome influences allergies, asthma, obesity, and our everyday health and wellbeing, especially during childhood. Find out in the next video, produced by AllerGen NCE Inc., how the gut microbiota can be altered by many…

In this video proposed by GMFH, we talked to Boston-based registered dietitian Kate Scarlata about how gut microbiota influences our health and our wellbeing. “Irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease —even anxiety and depression— have all been linked to changes in the gut microbiome,” recalls Kate Scarlata. She also explains that most people are not eating enough fiber (food…

Fiber is a key overlooked nutrient in the diets of many. Although some fiber cannot be digested by humans, it can be broken down by the microbes in our gut – a community of bacteria called the gut microbiota. Like fiber, prebiotics also act as food for beneficial microbes in the gut, and many current prebiotics are actually considered to…

Do you have belly pain, flatulence, diarrhea or feel constipated or bloated? Moreover, are you constantly feeling tired, exhausted, depressed and have headaches? You may have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The European Society of Neurogastroenterology & Motility (ESNM) explains, in this short video, the importance of diagnosis and fully understanding of this chronic disease to treat it correctly.

The intestinal barrier is the first line of defense against pathogens and antigens in the gut and it encompasses both physical and chemical properties. However, little is known about its critical function for maintaining health and how barrier function is influenced by the microbiota under healthy conditions or in physiological states.
