Bacteria communicate electrically, just like brain neurons with long-range signalling capacity, according to a recent study.
For the first time, researchers have shown in an experimental model that commensal bacteria may affect hunger and satiety through their influence on gut-brain signals and activation of appetite-regulated brain neurons.
Did you know that exercising in the heat causes digestive stress? As a result, the walls of the intestines become weaker, allowing harmful bacteria from the digestive tract to leak into the bloodstream.
Adverse reactions are common to many food additives...these are the scourges that cause behavioural changes in children, exacerbating ADHD and triggering asthma.
Probiotics have a plethora of applications. In this podcast we explore some medically diagnosed conditions for which they are clinically appropriate.

In either instance, symptoms can range from localised to systemic and may easily be misdiagnosed as seemingly unrelated to their underlying cause: gluten intolerance.
Saccharomyces boulardii (SB) is a beneficial probiotic, non-colonising yeast. It modulates the host’s innate gastrointestinal (GIT) immune response and improves GIT integrity.
Belinda Reynolds explores the pathogenesis of D-Lactate and reveals it may not be the culprit first thought, but rather a victim of circumstance.
