Biodiverse Soil Dust May Help Lower Anxiety

Researchers from the University of Adelaide have found new evidence of a potentially broadly-acting microbial link between the health of ecosystems and the health of people. The research[1] investigated the relationship between exposure to biodiverse soil dust, gut health, and mental health. Growing evidence links natural green space exposure with a range of health benefits, […]

The Microbiome Is Shaped By Genetic Differences In The Immune System

Differences in the genes of the immune system sculpt the assortment of bacteria that colonize the digestive system, new research[1] by scientists at the University of Chicago indicates. “When the input is standardized, you can compare mice of different genetic strains and see what these genetics do to the microbiome in recipient mice. This approach […]

For Gut Microbes, Not All Types Of Fiber Are Created Equal

Some human gut microbes with links to health prosper when fed specific types of ingredients in dietary fibers, a new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis indicates[1]. The research – conducted in mice colonized with human gut bacteria and using new technologies for measuring nutrient processing – is a step toward […]
