Scientific Review on Immunity and the Microbiome, a Symbiotic Partnership

When referring to immunity and the microbiome, the science often focuses on how the microbiota promote and calibrate all aspects of the immune system. However, as this study notes, “the immune system plays a fundamental role in shaping and preserving the ecology of the microbiota,” as well. It’s a symbioticRead …

Probiotics and Gut Microbiome Trigger Emotion and Mood Brain Signatures

Can probiotics alter the gut microbiome to shift emotion and mood brain signatures? The gut microbiota-brain axis plays an important role in gastrointestinal function and the regulation of mood, anxiety, and pain by communicating with the brain. Most studies have used animal models, however the following is a human double-blindRead …

Multi-strain Probiotics May Lower Endotoxin Levels and Cardiometabolic Markers in Diabetics

Could probiotics decrease endotoxin levels and other cardiometabolic parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)? This study set out to assess whether multi-strain probiotic supplementation could reduce endotoxin levels and consequently improve cardiometabolic profiles in metabolically-high risk populations. This 6-month, single-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial included 150Read …

David Scheiderer MD on Stress and the Microbiome

The science is growing showing that meta-inflammation and dysbiosis may be linked to dysfunction of the gut-brain axis and thus affect mental health. It all comes down to stress and the microbiome. In this video presentation, from our partners at Holistic Primary Care, integrative psychiatrist, David Scheiderer, MD, reviews theRead …

Could Specific Probiotic Strains Modulate Brain Processing and Connectivity?

Probiotic Strains May Modulate Brain Processing

Research show how probiotic strains modulate brain processing and connectivity The interconnection between the gut microbiome and brain interactions for neurotransmitter expression, neurodevelopment, and behavior is a relatively new area of science. Rodent studies abound, which supports the basic level of knowledge that multi-strain probiotics can influence this connectivity, howeverRead …

Multi-Species Probiotics and Multi-drug Resistance Gram-Negative Bacteria

Drug resistance among the elderly is common, particularly for residents in long-term care facilities. Multi-species probiotics may provide a solution for patients prone to repeated infections because of multi-drug resistant gram-negative bacteria. ABSTRACT/ Residents in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) are frequently colonized by multi-drug resistant gram-negative bacteria, putting them atRead …

Can Selected Probiotic Strains Reduce Risk of Eczema in High-Risk Children?

eczema in high risk children, probiotics

Skin and allergic diseases are on the rise in children. One hypothesis is that there is reduced exposure to microbial components early in life. There are five clinical studies currently available regarding the primary prevention of atopic eczema using probiotic bacteria for allergic diseases. And none have shown promising results,Read …
