Gut brain axis

Latest articles

Since ancient times, many cultures around the world have included foods rich in microbes - friendly bacteria able to give a helping hand to our microbiota and overall health – in their traditional diet. Scientists are starting to better understand the role of these microorganisms and how they can have a positive impact on the health of our gut. At…

Butterflies in your stomach before a big presentation is a familiar experience, but surprisingly, scientists don't yet know exactly how this happens. The gut-brain axis – the brain's influence on the gastrointestinal tract and the other way around – is now a subject of keen scientific interest. A recent review, published in Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, covered what we know…

For some time, science has known that exposure to vaginal microbiota is crucial for newborn health. When babies pass through the birth canal, they get a healthy dose of the mother’s bacteria that helps them establish their own collection of microbes and turn on their immune system. However, stress during pregnancy may alter the mother’s microbiome and that can interfere…

Gut bacteria may play a crucial role in inducing anxiety and depression, according to a new study by researchers at McMaster University (Canada), published in the journal Nature Communications. The research, carried out in rodents, is the first of its kind to explore how gut microbiota works in the onset of altered behaviour deriving from early life stress. A team…
