Gut-Microbiota-Brain Axis and Its Effect on Neuropsychiatric Disorders With Suspected Immune Dysregulation. – PubMed – NCBI

http://ift.tt/2nmwaJn

FINDINGS: Various afferent or efferent pathways are involved in the MGB axis. Antibiotics, environmental and infectious agents, intestinal neurotransmitters/neuromodulators, sensory vagal fibers, cytokines, and essential metabolites all convey information to the central nervous system about the intestinal state. Conversely, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, the central nervous system regulatory areas of satiety, and neuropeptides released from sensory nerve fibers affect the gut microbiota composition directly or through nutrient availability. Such interactions seem to influence the pathogenesis of a number of disorders in which inflammation is implicated, such as mood disorder, autism-spectrum disorders, attention-deficit hypersensitivity disorder, multiple sclerosis, and obesity.

Food Additives Alter Gut Microbes, Cause Diseases in Mice – NIH Research Matters – National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Food Additives Alter Gut Microbes, Cause Diseases in Mice – NIH Research Matters – National Institutes of Health (NIH) (http://ift.tt/1xuUdkp)

At a Glance

  • Common food additives called emulsifiers promoted colitis and metabolic syndrome in mice by altering gut microbes.
  • The findings suggest that certain food additives might play a role in the increasing incidence of obesity and chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
