People with depression or vulnerability to depression should be encouraged to eat plant-based diets with higher levels of grains, fibres and fish, according to new recommendations published by the MyNetGut consortium.
A mouse study finds a remarkable microbial connection to fear.
Study provides new insight into the mechanisms of how the gut and brain communicate at the molecular level.
Research on gut-brain communication via the immune system may help in the development of novel treatments for neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers discover that a group of immune cells, known to be strong contributors to gut health, is directly controlled by the brain's circadian clock.
Following a certain type of diet could affect the gut microbiome in ways that decrease the risk of Alzheimer's disease - new study.
Early life stress, such as maternal separation, may cause long-term alterations to brain neurochemistry and the gut microbiome. The potential is there to modulate these detrimental effects using interventions such as prebiotics.
What does the general public know about the importance of their microbiome, where do they go for information and what do they do to improve their gut health? A healthcare company-sponsored survey set out to investigate.
Behaviourally defined diagnostic labels such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) seem to rarely exist in some sort of clinical vacuum. Part of that vacuum also potentially encompasses a range of somatic symptoms and/or diagnostic labels.
A Canadian study reveals the gut bacteria’s relationship with chronic pain in findings that identify changes in the gut microbiome in people with fibromyalgia.
New research suggests that gut microbes of a 2.5-month-old infant are associated with the temperament traits manifested at six months of age.
Researchers have made an important advance in understanding the roles that gut bacteria play in human health.
With more research being conducted on the gut-brain axis, studies have reported that the gut microbiota plays an important part in regulating brain function.
People who experience anxiety symptoms might be helped by taking steps to regulate the microorganisms in their gut using probiotic and non-probiotic food and supplements, suggests a new review of studies.
Modifying our microbiome with prebiotic fibres could help lower levels of brain inflammation and boost brain function during ageing, according to new mouse-based research.
Early studies on animals have linked consumption of polyphenol-rich berries to improvements in some cognitive markers. This has warranted studies on humans, and results are shedding more light on how berries may benefit our brain health.
A probiotic strain of Bifidobacterium longum appears to improve the ability to respond and cope with stress as research provides more proof of the bidirectional communication between the gut and brain.
A daily dose of a multi-strain probiotic can provide a significant improvement in mood, with a reduction in depressive, anger, and fatigue, and an improvement in sleep quality, according to a new study.
This new research is a good start and complements other work in related areas talking about the gut-brain axis as being potentially pertinent to some forms of schizophrenia.
There is growing evidence that at least in some patients with Parkinson's disease, the disease may begin in the gut.
