A new study reports a direct correlation between health and gut bacteria in older people. Researchers report healthy elderly people have similar overall microbiota composition to people decades younger.
Researchers report the gut microbiome could help explain why some people experience toxic side effects from medications. A new study reveals how gut bacteria can transform certain drugs into harmful compounds.
Researchers identified specific genetic variants and families of gut microbes associated with anxiety-like behavior, including host genes that influence anxiety indirectly.
Researchers identify distinct signatures in the gut microbiome that were associated with either healthy and unhealthy aging trajectories.
Study adds to the growing body of evidence that the microbiome may impact muscle mass and physical function. In high-functioning older adults and mouse models, researchers identified higher levels of good bacteria in the microbiome than in their lower-functioning peers.
