Neurodegenerative Diseases and Gut Bacteria: Zeroing in on the Culprits (and the Solution)

My regular readers know that there is a (rapidly) growing body of evidence linking alterations in the bacterial microbiome to neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, (PD), Alzheimer’s and ALS.  (I have provided you links to just 3 of many previous posts on these topics.)  No… Continue Reading “Neurodegenerative Diseases and Gut Bacteria: Zeroing in on the Culprits (and the Solution)”

A Promising Probiotic Treatment for Leaky Gut

I have talked about impaired tight junctions in the intestinal epithelial lining (i.e. leaky gut) many times on this blog.  (Look here and here, for just two examples.)  We know this is a factor in diseases ranging from Parkinson’s to autism to Celiac disease… Continue Reading “A Promising Probiotic Treatment for Leaky Gut”
