Healthy gut bacteria can protect you from just about ANY age-related disease, new study finds

As you age you should pay attention to your gut bacteria. There are good ones which you want present. If you have a good balance you can be protected from many of the diseases the elderly are prone to. If you feel your gut is unbalanced you can talk to your doctor about fixing this with supplements or a better diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • Healthy gut bacteria is the key to better health overall and a new study finds that it also helps protect you against virtually any age-related disease or condition.
  • Research has shown that poorly-balanced gut bacteria from older mice is responsible for “inflammaging” in younger mice after it was transplanted into them.
  • Inflammaging is a condition where there is chronic inflammation, which is common in aging, and it is linked to most all serious age-related health conditions like dementia, cardiovascular disease and strokes.

“Researchers at the University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands, found that imbalanced gut bacteria is very likely to blame for a number of age-related diseases.”
