A growing number of scientific studies show diet can affect health through the gut microbiota. “By modulating your diet, you can also modulate your microbes. Microbes can contribute to the severity or the onset of a disease. But if your diet is wrong or unhealthy, that is the first cause,” highlights Clara Belzer. Food and dietary patterns actually have differing…

Research regarding the gut microbiota has exploded and it is one of the hottest emerging health topics. No longer simply a digestive organ, the gut and its microbiota has now been revealed as having a role in metabolism, immunity and even behaviour. Research has also revealed the dynamic nature of our gut microbiota over the lifespan – with composition changes…

What happens if we don’t feed our gut microbiota? According to Mahesh Desai, researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Health, the gut barrier might be destroyed or eroded and that could potentially lead to intestinal diseases. “We have a gut microbiota that is evolved to feed on the fibers that we eat, but it has also evolved to feed on…

A growing number of scientific studies show the diet can affect health through the gut microbiota. However, foods and dietary patterns actually have differing effects on the gut microbiota between individuals. In modulating the gut microbiota of infants, prebiotics and probiotics could turn out to be useful. Treatments with specific probiotics could help regulate an unbalanced microbiota and thus improve,…

The identification of an isolate at the strain level has been considered an essential requirement for any microbe that is intended to be commercialized as a probiotic. Strain-level identity is essential for both safety and efficacy evaluations. It enables traceability in laboratory tests, clinical trials and throughout the production and commercialization process. Although the health benefits of probiotics have been…

Dietitians are the best equipped health professionals to answer the question: What should I eat for better health? But when you’re sitting in a clinic asking this question, your dietitian faces a dilemma—what should they tell you when they know that not everyone responds the same way to exactly the same diet? According to Dr. Genelle Healey from the Department…
