Digestion is extraordinarily complex, and there is a long list of ways it can go wrong. From constipation to bloating, digestive disorders can cause significant distress for infants and children as they develop. Fortunately, with emerging research on the microbiota, doctors, dietitians, and other healthcare professionals have a growing list of science-based strategies to use in addressing these problems. Healthcare…

Study finds sex signature in gut microbiota   The gut microbiota of men and women are different, according to a recent study in Plos One, updating previous studies that saw no sex signature in the gut microbiota. Furthermore, the study also suggests adiposity and fibre intake may influence gut flora. The study’s authors, from the New York University School of…

If you were to take a gram of your own faeces and analyse it, you would discover that it contains a greater number of bacteria than there are humans on the planet. As surprising as it may seem, it’s true that the human body is home to over 100 trillion microorganisms, which, if gathered together on a scale would weigh…

Research & Practice

Previous research has shown that a primary function of the gut microbiome is providing colonization resistance against many orally acquired pathogens; several exogenous factors, such as antibiotic treatments, could reduce host resistance to infections. The potential for manipulating the gut microbiome in the context of travellers’ health has not been previously explored in depth in a scientific review. A 2016…

Previous research from the two largest cohorts to date has shown that diet is one of the primary factors involved in gut microbiome variation among healthy individuals. Regarding bread type, little is known about how interpersonal variation affects clinical and microbiome-related responses. A new study, led by Dr. Avraham Levy, Dr Eran Elinav and Dr. Eran Segal from the Department…

Constipation is a common condition that may result from altered gastrointestinal motility. Several factors appear relevant to gut motility: the gut luminal environment (including the gastrointestinal microbiota and fermentation), as well as factors related to the immune system, the enteric nervous system, and the central nervous system. Previous research has found associations between colonic transit time and aspects of patients’…

Public awareness about the importance of the gut microbiota is growing, but many nutrition professionals struggle to know how to incorporate findings from gut microbiota science into their practice. In a rapidly-progressing field, what should clinicians know about how gut microbes and diet interact to produce different health outcomes?
