Urolithin A said to reduce aging

Urolithin A supplements may provide a way to stimulate mitophagy in older people and help them maintain strength and endurance. David Marcinek, Ph.D., a professor of radiology at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, and his team are doing preliminary clinical trial to find out the efficacy and safety of such supplements …

more on gut microbiome influences on depression

Oct 24, 2022 The influence of genetic variation on the rate of depression ranges from 37% to 48%, showing a strong relation between family history and depression. The gut microbiome can be a promising approach for managing depression. Gut dysbiosis is associated with major depressive disorder (MDD) by involvement with various aspects of Gut-brain axis …

Study connects Rheumatoid Arthritis to expansion of proteins and cytokines to gut bacteria

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune condition when the body’s immune system starts to attack itself. Proteins called antibodies, known as anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA), which usually help fight off viruses and bacteria, begin to attack the joints instead, according to Meagan Chriswell, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in the Conversation October 27, 2022 …

butyrate can be produced by gut bacteria from almonds

A clinical study led by Kings College London Professor of Dietetics Kevin Whelan investigated how gut microbes break down almonds to produce butyrate, a specific microbiota product associated with several health benefits. This new research found that consuming almonds significantly increases butyrate, a type of beneficial short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) produced by microbes in the …

researchers near replicating carbon reduction process in nature

Researchers found that enzymes from certain bacteria in the soil turns carbon dioxide in the air into carbon molecules, a process that helps reduce the carbon footprint which drives climate change. An international consortium of university researchers including Stanford’s Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have figured out a way to potentially artificially duplicate …

MIT researchers engineer bacterial enzyme that protects against negative effects of antibiotics

MIT News reported April 11 2022 that MIT researchers successfully engineered a bacteria based antibiotic treatment. The enzyme of this bacteria can help reduce the risk of inflammation caused by antibiotics. MIT engineers developed a strain of bacteria that is safe for human consumption that safely produces an enzyme that breaks down a class of …

Gut microbiome linked to cognitive aging

According to a February 22, 2022 Medical News Today report, researchers from the United States analyzed data from a large cross-sectional study of CARDIA, Coronary Artery Risk Development, in Young Adults and found a link between gut microbial composition and cognitive status in middle-aged adults.  607 stool samples were studied for DNA sequencing of adults …

Urolithin A said to reduce aging

According to Popular Science, researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) and life-science company Amazentis believes they have found a way to reduce muscle decline and low energy with a highly pure Urolithin A supplement. Mitochondria which converts food into energy, generates adenosine triphosphate (ATP) life-sustaining chemical tissue, and mitophagy which is …

Cayenne pepper helps diversify microbiome community

On April 19 2022 Mind Body Green reported a study that found “that capsaicin (in cayenne pepper) alters the gut microbial community structure by increasing the diversity of the community.” Capsaicin is an antioxidant said to aid in proper digestion, with anti-inflammatory effects. Researchers used the in vitro model to conduct their research.  Capsaicin stimulates …
