Gut microbiota

Latest articles

Aging is a physiological process that results in changes observable to the naked eye (appearance of a few more wrinkles, hair whitening, change in stature or posture…) but also other changes less observable (increased frailty). Aging-related changes also occur within our digestive tract, but they are not always easy for the human eye to detect. Diet and host genetics are…

While the composition of your microbiota remains fairly stable in adulthood, it is subject to variations in the first years of life and among seniors, some of which are more significant than others! Factors such as delivery mode, diet and antibiotic treatments all have an impact on the development of our gut microbiota, along with its diversity and richness. This…

Now, these suspicions have been confirmed by the largest ever study of newborns’ gut microbiota and the impact of delivery methods. According to the new research, babies born by Caesarean section have different gut bacteria to those…

Human milk is the gold standard for infant nutrition, as it contains bioactive compounds that help support the development of the infant gut microbiota and immune system. However, for a variety of reasons, not all infants can be exclusively breastfed. “The Biotics Family in Early Life,” is an essential knowledge briefing from Wiley. The book discusses how the use of dietary…
