 Identifying signatures of healthy aging in the human gut microbiome

Identifying signatures of healthy aging in the human gut microbiome

The gut microbiome has important effects on human health, yet its importance in human ageing remains unclear. We recently demonstrated that, starting in mid-to-late adulthood, gut microbiomes become increasingly unique to healthy individuals with age. This microbiome ageing pattern is absent in less-than-healthy individuals. This pattern of healthy ageing in the gut is characterized by a depletion of core genera found across most humans, primarily Bacteroides. This gut uniqueness pattern is also correlated with a number of blood metabolites, including microbially-derived amino acid fermentation byproducts. Retaining a high Bacteroides dominance into older age, or having a low gut microbiome uniqueness measure, predicts decreased survival in a 4-year follow-up. Our analysis identifies increasing compositional uniqueness of the gut microbiome as a component of healthy ageing, which is characterized by distinct microbial metabolic outputs in the blood.

Why Vitamin K2 is Potentially One of the Most Important Healthy Aging Nutrients

Have you ever considered that bone and heart health are integrally linked? While both are impacted by age (i.e., age-related wear), compromised bone and heart health are an implication of a vitamin deficiency: Vitamin K2. Protecting hearts and bones is an essential facet of aging healthily, but it's a foundation that must be established early. Simply adding a vitamin to one's daily routine has been clinically proven to do both. Even more exciting is new research linking the mechanism of this essential nutrient to impacting other health areas beyond just bone and heart, including the brain, vision, general/respiratory, pain and inflammation, and more, leading to the argument that Vitamin K2 could be one of the most crucial healthy aging nutrients on the market today.
