Improve child immune health with a combination of probiotics and vitamin C.
Dr Van Den Bogaerde shares the current scientific opinion on gut microbial diversity and he discusses his excitement about the research exploring faecal microbial transplants
Could probiotics be beneficial in reducing gastrointestinal and upper respiratory tract infections?
Peanut allergy is one of the dominant allergic diseases experienced by children and, while some children may grow out of a milk, wheat or egg allergy, peanuts allergies tend to be lifelong burdens for most sufferers. Symptoms associated with peanut exposure in those who are allergic vary from gastrointestinal to systemic, with anaphylactic reactions posing the greatest danger.
In this podcast, with the help of Dr Jessica Younes we explore the complexities and the outside influences of the vaginal microbiota.
It is understood that the microbiome differs from person to person, even varying in the same individual at different stages of life, thus influencing which genes are active at any given time. How is this influencing autoimmunity?
Increasingly, some strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae have developed resistance to certain classes of antibiotics such as carbapenems, by acquiring a gene mutation that helps them to produce an enzyme that creates a resistance to the strongest of antibiotics.
Researchers are finding that different gut microbes can even influence the way medicines work in our bodies. The problem is that it’s both good and bad news. But what all of the research points to is that we’d better look after our microbes.
