Newsletter #170
March 19th, 2020


Dear Friends,

It's time to take care and stay healthy. In these moments, for all of you who can, it's important to stay at home with your family. We hope you enjoy reading our newsletter.

In this new edition of our newsletter we are delighted to announce the launch of the new Gut Microbiota for Health website!

Our upgraded GMFH website includes a new section called Food 4 Gut Health, which promotes the role of food in gut function among dietitians, healthcare professionals and gut health advocates. With the aim of sparking new conversations around diet, nutrition and gut health, we have also released the new Instagram account @Food4Gut_Health.

This short video gives you a complete overview of the new website and the related digital ecosystem.

Also in this newsletter, a new article included in the special issue “Food and Diet for Gut Function and Dysfunction” in the peer reviewed open access journal Nutrients. This new exploratory intervention study shows the potential role of a fermented milk product with a probiotic bacterium in improving digestive comfort in response to a plant-based diet in healthy individuals.

Next up, we have two new narrative reviews that are also part of the special issue of Nutrients. The first updates how the upper gastrointestinal tract responds to meal-related stimuli, both in healthy conditions and in the context of eating-related disorders, and the second updates how MRI has helped in evaluating the impact of nutrients and drugs on gastrointestinal physiology and pathology.

You will also come across another recent study that concludes that a certain species of gut bacteria can transform the harmful byproducts of food processing into less harmful byproducts in mice and in vitro conditions.

Finally, we have new research into obese diabetic women, which shows that gut microbiota composition before Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is linked to postoperative type 2 diabetes remission.

Enjoy the reading and stay healthy!
