MORE protection from gut microbes: Study finds they can prevent high blood pressure caused by a high-salt diet We all know that too much salt can cause heart disease and kill you.
Another thing that the researchers found out was that all of the mice that were fed the low-fiber WSD diet showed a lower rate of gut mucous growth compared with the ones who were fed the standard control diet.
Summary : Personalized diets based on one’s physical characteristics and gut biome may be the most effective way for people to manage their blood sugar, according to the findings of Assessment of a Personalized Approach to Predicting Postprandial Glycemic Responses to Food Among Individuals Without Diabetes.
Reporting in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism indicated cardiorespiratory fitness was a far greater predictor of gut microbiota diversity than either body fat percentage or general physical activity.
Animal research has demonstrated the addition of flaxseed to a high-fat diet protected mice against obesity, 3 supporting previous research showing lignans in flaxseed were associated with a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes in women.
In our population-level study we identified several groups of bacteria that co-varied with human depression and quality of life across populations.’ Previously, Prof Raes and his team have documented low microbial count and biodiversity among Crohn’s disease patients.
Fecal Transplants From Super Donors Increase Success Rates Since Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis , asthma, heart disease and certain cancers are associated with changes to gut bacteria, researchers were interested in understanding what makes a fecal super donor.
Health care professionals should avoid prescribing fluoroquinolone antibiotics to patients who have an aortic aneurysm or are at risk for an aortic aneurysm, such as patients with peripheral atherosclerotic vascular diseases, hypertension, certain genetic conditions such as Marfan syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and elderly patients." Upper Respiratory Infections Are Often Viral Viruses commonly trigger upper respiratory infections (URI) with symptoms of runny nose, cough, low grade fever, sore throat and difficulty sleeping.
According to many experts, cases of hemorrhoids and diverticulitis could be significantly curbed just by assuming a squatting position — rather than a chair seated one — on the toilet when having a bowel movement.
However, a new study provides a unique take on it, saying that the state of your heart and blood vessels affects the population of good bacteria that live inside the gut.
Turns out, a particular gut bacteria seems to use fiber to reduce atherosclerosis and inflammation in mice. Mice with Roseburia who ate a high-fiber diet suffered less atherosclerosis and inflammation. The findings: A particular fatty acid, butyrate, is the mechanism through which a high-fiber diet protects the heart in mice.
While research shows other benefits, here I’ll focus on two fundamental conditions that supplementing with NAC can affect: oxidative stress and chronic inflammation. If you have Hashimoto’s or any other autoimmune disease – or if you have chronic inflammation and oxidative stress – you may wish to consider taking this supplement.
In the video above, Chris Kresser, an acupuncturist, licensed integrative medicine clinician and codirector of the California Center for Functional Medicine, interviews11 Lucy Mailing, a microbiome researcher, about two recent studies12,13 that have thrown a bit of a wrench into the standard recommendation to reseed your gut with probiotics after taking a course of antibiotics.
Chronic stress results in high levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and decreased oxygen can play a role in damaging your gut.The holidays give us a chance to slow down by spending quality time with our loved ones and celebrating the season.
The study, which was conducted at the Van Andel Research Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan, found that Parkinson’s disease may be triggered, at least for some people, by a gut protein that collects in the appendix.1 These findings were based on an analysis of the medical records of close to 1.7 million men and women in Sweden’s national health database, going back as far as 1964.
A low-fermentable oligo-, di-, mono-saccharides and polyols (FODMAP) diet, which is very low in prebiotic-rich vegetables and fruits that feed bacteria, has been shown to resurrect serotonin cell density in the gut, as well as peptide YY (PYY) cells in the gut, thereby helping patients to recover from digestive maladies such as SIBO.
