The gut microbiome has captured the attention of both researchers and society, and important progress was made in 2019 in our understanding of its emerging role in health and disease. Although gut microbiome science is moving progressively from the bench to the bedside, much research in the field has looked at cataloguing the composition and function of gut microbial communities,…

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…

Our gut microbiota’s composition and metabolic activity is behind the close relationship between what we eat and our gut health and wellbeing. You have probably experienced gastrointestinal symptoms related to food intake, which can be aggravated by certain foods or food groups. And you’re not alone in that. As increasingly more people are affected by digestive disorders that affect their…

Studies have shown that diet, such as Paleo, high fat vs low-fat diet or Western diet, greatly impacts the gut microbiota composition even more than genetics. Surprisingly, little is known how cooking certain foods might alter the gut microbiota. Since heat changes the chemical and physical properties of foods, researchers wondered if this too affects the gut microbiota. Head researcher…

Opting to follow a vegetarian diet is becoming a growing trend in Western countries, but is it a healthy choice as well? What impact does a plant-based diet have on the gut microbiota compared with an omnivorous one? Suzanne Devkota, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Gastroenterology division at Cedars Sinai Medical Centre (USA), is interested about the convergence of food, health…

The microbes that inhabit our intestines are responsible for several functions such as synthesizing vitamins as well as modulating our immune system, metabolism and blood sugar levels. Recent studies show that the gut microbiota may affect our body’s response to insulin, a hormone that helps glucose enter into the body’s cells so that it can be used as energy. For…
