Intermittent fasting can help to reduce hypertension by reshaping the gut's microbiome.
Immune cells in the uterus and placenta of stressed pregnant mice were not activated, but researchers found increased levels of inflammation in the developing fetal brain. Additionally, prenatal stress led to reductions in gut microbial strains and functions, especially in those linked to inflammation.
A meta-analysis study reveals alterations in the gut microbiome may trigger gastrointestinal problems associated with Parkinson's disease. Additionally, the gastrointestinal problems may occur years before other Parkinson's symptoms develop.
Researchers identify distinct signatures in the gut microbiome that were associated with either healthy and unhealthy aging trajectories.
Over 60s with poor appetite were found to have less variety of gut bacteria than those with healthier appetites. Additionally, those with good appetites had more microbes associated with diets rich in fruits and vegetables.
Researchers identified specific genetic variants and families of gut microbes associated with anxiety-like behavior, including host genes that influence anxiety indirectly.
Researchers found significant differences in samples from the appendix of people with Parkinson's disease, specifically in microbial composition correlating with higher levels of toxic bile acids.
Researchers have identified a strain of E.coli in the guts of female mice that cause them to neglect their offspring. The study shows a direct link between the microbiome and maternal behavior.
