Dieting impacts a person's energy balance by altering gut microbiome: Study

"For the first time, we were able to show that a very low-calorie diet produces major changes in the composition of the gut microbiome and that these changes have an impact on the host's energy balance," said Prof. Dr Joachim Spranger, one of the study's lead authors.

Indian-origin scientist finds dead probiotic that can fix leaky gut

Leaky gut, in which microbes and bacteria in the gut leak into the blood stream through holes or cracks in the intestinal lining, causes an increase in low-grade inflammation, and these conditions are common in older people.
A team led by an Indian-origin scientist has identified a dead probiotic that can reduce age-related leaky gut and control harmful, ageing-related inflammation.(wakeforestuniversity)

Sunlight exposure may alter gut bacteria for good

Exposure to UVB in sunlight is well-known to drive vitamin D production in the skin, and recent studies suggest that the sunshine vitamin alters the human gut microbiome, according to the study published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology.
UVB exposure boosted the richness and evenness of their microbiome to levels indistinguishable from the supplemented group, whose microbiome was not significantly changed.(Unsplash)

In a healthy state, these microorganisms work in harmony with the body to help digest food, generate and use energy and promote normal organ and immune function.
