Gut microbiota

Latest articles

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…

The type of birth (vaginal delivery or C-section) affects the development of gut microbiota in newborns and may affect their health later in life, according to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Canadian researchers studied the development of the gut bacteria – gut microbiota – of newborns according to delivery type in order to analyse how this…

As already mentioned on this blog, we are born sterile and our gut microbiota begins to develop at birth. We know that breast milk plays an essential role in the composition of gut microbiota in newborns. Spanish scientists from the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Science (IATA - Instituto de Agroquímica y Tecnología de los Alimentos) and the Center for…

As we have previously explained in this blog, many factors can alter our gut microbiota: from health status and diet to ageing and pregnancy. Confirming this, a study published recently in Cell Magazine showed that the composition of gut microbiota changes dramatically while expecting a baby. Although gut microbiota was widely analyzed up to now, this was the first time…

The type of birth (vaginal delivery or C-section) affects the development of gut microbiota in newborns and may affect their health later in life, according to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Canadian researchers studied the development of the gut bacteria – gut microbiota – of newborns according to delivery type in order to analyse how this could influence their future health. Research showed that C-section alters the colonisation of a newborn’s gut microbiota as it prevents direct exposure to and contact with the mother’s microbiota. According to the research team, caesarean section may increase adults’ risk of suffering from a range of conditions including asthma, obesity,…
