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…

A major focus of gut microbiome research in early life is how delivery mode affects the newborn gut microbiota and its impact on the health of the growing child. Although previous studies revealed that infants born by Caesarean section (C-section) develop a gut microbiota composition that more closely resembles adult skin and the hospital environment, and which may predispose newborns…

Maternal microbiota, mode of delivery, type of infant feeding and other factors can influence the infant microbiota in the perinatal period. Microbiota composition in the neonatal period and beyond seems to have a relevant role in health, but researchers still have much to learn about the microbiota assembly process in healthy term infants and which aspects could have a causal…
