Although nowadays diet plays only a small part in published guidelines for managing inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), there is an increasing amount of evidence that supports the role of diet in patients with IBD, especially at early stages. Evidence of diet modulating intestinal inflammation comes mainly from mice studies. An elegant mice study published in 2018 examined the effects of…

Prof. Dr. Paul Enck, Director of Research, Dept. of Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy, University Hospital Tübingen, Germany. His main interests are gut functions in health and disease, including functional and inflammatory bowel disorders, the role of the gut microbiota, regulation of eating and food intake and its disorders, of nausea, vomiting and motion sickness, and the psychophysiology and neurobiology of the placebo response, with specific emphasis on age and gender contributions. He has published more than 170 original data paper in scientific, peer-reviewed journals, and more than 250 book chapters and review articles. He is board member/treasurer of the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility and of the German Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, and has served as reviewer for many international journals and grant agencies.

How do sports impact our gut microbiota? We know that diet affects our overall health. We also know that exercise does the same: It affects our immune system and gut permeability, also has anti-inflammatory effects. Professor Paul Cotter, an investigator at APC Microbiome Ireland, studies the microbiome of professional athletes to identify the relationship between specific sports and microbiome changes.…

Numerous claims are currently being made about different dietary patterns as a means of ensuring optimal gut health. Even so, their effectiveness and safety are not always supported by scientific evidence. The Paleolithic (or ‘paleo’) diet is often promoted as a means of improving gut health. But despite its popularity, the science-based long-term effects of this diet remain unknown. A…

When we’re faced with the question of which diet is best for our personal health, the answer isn’t easy.  The individual response to dietary interventions varies greatly, and the gut microbiota likely plays a major role. However, several factors influence gut microbiota composition such as genetics, long-term dietary habits, hygiene, geographical location, exercise, as well as antibiotic and probiotic use…

The source of variation in the composition and function of the microbiome within and between species is yet to be fully understood. Although genetic background and diet have been suggested as major drivers of gut microbiome composition, the role of genetics versus environmental factors in driving gut microbiome variation in closely related primates remains unclear. A new study by Dr.…

Imbalances in the small intestinal microbiome can drive clinical consequences in the form of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), characterized by higher numbers of bacteria and a distribution more commonly associated with the colon. In recent times, SIBO has been recognized as a frequent cause of common gastrointestinal conditions that share risk factors such as maldigestion and malabsorption. Methods used…

In this video proposed by GMFH, we talked to Boston-based registered dietitian Kate Scarlata about how gut microbiota influences our health and our wellbeing. “Irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease —even anxiety and depression— have all been linked to changes in the gut microbiome,” recalls Kate Scarlata. She also explains that most people are not eating enough fiber (food…

Different environmental factors may shape human gut microbiome variation. Although diet has a major influence on gut microbiome shifts within an individual, at population level, diet contributes little to gut microbiome variation. Although our gut microbiome might contribute to interindividual variability in response to diet, close monitoring of how temporal variation in diet alters gut microbiome composition and stability at…

We've all experienced a late night of partying followed by a dose of fast food in the early hours of the morning. And we've all been so busy with work that we don’t have time to sleep or eat. But did you know these behaviors can have a negative impact on your gut microbiota health? Diet is the factor that…

Before, she specialized in the gut microbiota and nutrition field by obtaining a master’s degree in Paris in microbiology and a food and health engineer degree in Beauvais. She first meets the scientific communication world in Barcelona after her work on gut microbiota and diet at the VHIR. She is really concern about health of the population and believe that with a better diet and lifestyle we can all make ourselves healthier.
