Microbiome signatures of nutrients, foods and dietary patterns: Potential for personalized nutrition from The PREDICT 1 Study

Admin Clinical Papers May 29, 2020

The PREDICT 1 study (NCT03479866) enrolled 1,102 healthy US and UK adults to examine the genetic, metabolic, microbial, and meal composition/context contributions to metabolic responses to food. They observed strong associations between overall microbial structure, as well as feature-level associations with nutrients, foods, food groups, and established dietary indices. Strongest…

Cheese and healthy diet: Associations with incident cardio-metabolic diseases and all-cause mortality in the general population

Cheese may, however, be an excellent source of vitamin K2, which is a macronutrient with demonstrated positive results on cardiovascular-related outcomes.

Consumption of a diet rich in Brassica vegetables is associated with a reduced abundance of sulfate-reducing bacteria: A randomised crossover study

Admin Clinical Papers December 4, 2017

A randomised crossover study was performed with ten healthy adults who were fed a high- and a low-Brassica diet for 2-wk periods, with a 2-wk washout phase separating the diets. Faecal microbiota composition was measured in samples collected following 2-wk Brassica-free periods (consumption of all Brassica prohibited), and after each…

Review article: the gut microbiome in inflammatory bowel disease—avenues for microbial management

Admin Clinical Papers May 29, 2017

Disease remission and relapse are associated with microbial changes in both mucosal and luminal samples. In particular, a loss of species richness in Crohn’s disease has been widely observed. Existing therapeutic approaches broadly fall into 3 categories, namely: accession, reduction or indirect modulation of the microbiome. In terms of microbial…
