  • How dietary fiber and gut bacteria protect the cardiovascular system

    he fatty acid propionate helps defend against the effects of high blood pressure, including atherosclerosis and heart tissue remodeling, a study on mice has found. Gut bacteria produce the substance – which calms the immune cells that drive up blood pressure – from natural dietary fiber. “You are wh more

  • Link between Gut Flora and Multiple Sclerosis Discovered

    In multiple sclerosis, a defective response of the body’s own immune system leads to brain tissue damage. Gastrointestinal microbiota could play a far greater role in the pathogenesis of the disease than previously assumed, researchers at the University of Zurich have now found. Multiple sclerosis i more

    Mice with a lower calorie intake live longer and are both healthier and leaner. A team of researchers funded by the SNSF may have found the reason for this positive effect: much of it is down to gut microbial communities and how they affect the immune system. The researchers also found compounds tha more

  • Inflammasomes and gut flora

    Microbiome A large proportion of our immune system resides in the gut. Inflammasomes are host molecular complexes that sense danger and activate immune responses to food-related signals and foreign pathogens. Studies in mice have suggested that Nlrp6-ASC inflammasomes influence gut flora composition more

  • Circulating trimethylamine N‐oxide and the risk of cardiovascular diseases: a systematic review and meta‐analysis of 11 prospective cohort studies

    Abstract Circulating trimethylamine N‐oxide (TMAO), a canonical metabolite from gut flora, has been related to the risk of cardiovascular disorders. However, the association between circulating TMAO and the risk of cardiovascular events has not been quantitatively evaluated. We performed a syste more
