Since it is known that the gut microbiota is extremely important for general health, increasingly more people are interested in looking after it. Dietitian Danielle Capalino, who took part in the Gut Microbiota for Health World Summit held in Miami, explains how we can take care of our gut bacteria.

Our gut microbiota provides us with many benefits; defending us against pathogens, tuning our immune systems, and aiding in the digestion of fiber. Now scientists have discovered yet another way that the bacteria in our guts could help by offering a potential way of protecting us from chemical modifications of food ingredients introduced by food processing. Researchers at the Washington…

As microbiome science expands, scientists worldwide are joining forces to better understand the impact commensal microbes found inside and on us have on the proper functioning of a wide range of ecosystems, from the ocean to the gastrointestinal tract. The Paris Center for Microbiome Medicine (PaCeMM) is a consortium of institutions that was recently created to facilitate gut microbiome research.…

The gut microbiome has captured the attention of both researchers and society, and important progress was made in 2019 in our understanding of its emerging role in health and disease. Although gut microbiome science is moving progressively from the bench to the bedside, much research in the field has looked at cataloguing the composition and function of gut microbial communities,…

The human microbiome has not only captured the attention of scientists, but also healthcare practitioners and the lay press. While initial studies focused on characterizing the gut microbiome in the context of both health and disease and the influence of environmental factors, there has been a shift in the field towards mechanistic research focusing on microbiome influence on host phenotype,…

Recurrent abdominal pain, which refers to functional abdominal pain disorders under the Rome IV classification, is a common problem affecting up to 25% of school-age children. As an organic cause is missing with this condition, parents of children affected by functional abdominal pain consider diet and behavioral therapies as methods of managing recurring problems. Although the treatment of functional abdominal…
