Do you want to know where the microbes that live in your digestive system come from? What is their relationship with metabolic conditions like diabetes or certain neurological disorders? Or perhaps you’re wondering how they change over time? These are just some of the questions answered by Youreka Science in this video that provides the essential information about our gut…

Almost a year ago, we were at the Gut Microbiota for Health Summit in Madrid (March 2013). The event gathered many lead experts across gut microbiota-related topics. We then made interviews with some of the speakers and decided to pull their answers together to get an overview on the field. We are excited with the upcoming edition of the Gut…

In this video Dr. Jeffrey Bland discusses recent research into the gut microbiome. Some of the research cited includes work done by the Cleveland Clinic showing certain gut microbiota may convert animal products consumed in the diet into secondary metabolites that are possibly heart-disease inducing (“the Bad”). However, research out of Europe appears to demonstrate particular gut flora may enhance…

We interviewed Prof. Paul O’Toole, Senior Lecturer at University College Cork, to discuss bacterial colonisation, or how bacteria reach the digestive tract from birth. The kind of birth, the family environment and food are some of the factors that initially influence the development of the gut microbiota, explains Prof. O’Toole. With time, the microbiota stabilises (except when we are affected…

Functional disorders are those in which the parameters of analyses and tests are normal, even though people may be suffering from pain or other symptoms. According to what Prof. Magnus Simren, chairman of the United European Gastroenterology (UEG) Scientific Committee, tells us in this interview, this kind of disorder frequently affects the digestive system. This video discusses the relationship that…

“You are not human, you are a walking bacterial colony,” says the Belgian researcher Jeroen Raes, from the Flanders Institute of Biology, in this video from TEDxBrussels. Raes discusses issues that go from the gut microbiota’s size to its functions, as well as its relationship with some of the most prevalent diseases, such as diabetes and obesity. A video that…
