Fiber-Mediated Nourishment of Gut Microbiota Protects against Diet-Induced Obesity by Restoring IL-22-Mediated Colonic Health

Researchers at Georgia State University, in an article published in Cell Host & Microbe, have found that in mice, fermentable fiber (specifically inulin in this case) protects against metabolic syndrome by nourishing microbiota to restore IL-22-mediated enterocyte function, without involving […]

Prebiotics in infant formula could improve learning and memory and alter brain chemistry

2018-10-24T14:52:53+00:00

University of Illinois researchers have investigated the effect of a cow's milk-based infant formula supplemented with polydextrose (PDX), a synthetic carbohydrate with prebiotic activity, and galactooligosaccharide (GOS), on a piglet population, measuring volatile fatty acids (VFAs) -- excreted by bacteria during digestion of these prebiotic fibers, leading them to conclude and extrapolate that prebiotics in infant formula could improve learning and memory as well as alter brain chemistry.

Fiber Is Good for You. Now Scientists May Know Why.

2018-10-24T14:53:54+00:00

A diet of fiber-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables, reduces the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. Indeed, the evidence for fiber’s benefits extends beyond any particular ailment: Eating more fiber seems to lower people’s mortality rate, whatever the cause.
