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…

Macronutrients, micronutrients and non-nutritive compounds are major drivers of the composition and metabolic functions of gut microbial communities. However, nutrient composition alone cannot explain the way people’s gut microbiomes are so different to each other.…

The gut microbiota is now believed to be a factor involved in the onset of cardiometabolic disorders such as obesity. In human and rat studies, the commensal* bacterium Akkermansia muciniphila- which is naturally present in…

Le microbiote intestinal est un facteur potentiellement impliqué dans l'apparition de troubles cardiométaboliques tels que l'obésité. Dans des études menées chez l'Homme et chez le rat, la bactérie commensale* Akkermansia muciniphila, naturellement présente en grande…

Actualmente, se cree que la microbiota intestinal interviene en la aparición de trastornos cardiometabólicos como la obesidad. Diferentes estudios con humanos y con ratas han optado por utilizar la bacteria comensal* Akkermansia muciniphila - naturalmente…

The circadian rhythms (sleep-wake cycles)—integrated in the suprachiasmatic nuclei in the hypothalamus—can influence a wide range of host physiological functions, ranging from digestion to body temperature. Although previous data showed that our gut microbiota has…

The international conference Nutrients 2019  - Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease was held from September 25-27 in Barcelona (Spain), organized by the MDPI open-access journal Nutrients. GMFH editors attended a…

Antibiotics are known for their capacity to perturb the structure of the gut microbiome, with subsequent complications that go beyond the gastrointestinal tract. How host and gut microbiome-related factors modulate antibiotic susceptibility, however, is poorly…

Crohn’s Disease (CD) is one of the sets of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that consists of chronic inflammation of the terminal ileum, that can extend throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Researchers have focused more on the…
