    Vitamin D Reduces TMAO From High-Choline Diet, Promotes Non-Atherogenic Microbiome

    The role of trimethylamine n-oxide (TMAO) in human disease has been quite controversial. The carnitine/choline in red meat and eggs had been purported to generate trimethylamine (TMA) via bacterial metabolism, which then goes on to become TMAO via the action of hepatic FMO3.

    Gut bacteria overgrowth drives (cocaine) addiction; glycine can reverse it

    Yet another study highlighting the importance of the microbiome for our health, and suggesting again that there may be no such thing as truly beneficial bacteria. Any bacteria capable of colonizing our GI tract seems to be capable of causing pathology if it is allowed to proliferate without...

    After decades of fraudulent theories on the origins and development of RA, the study below seems to finally admit the obvious - RA is not an "autoimmune" disorder but simply the body producing antibodies to specific pathogens found mostly in the gut, which, however, have managed to translocate...

    Sterile gut leads to lower anxiety, serotonin , and TPH-levels + some bacteria don't increase serotonin

    This study says: Beyond the gut, germ free mice also display an increased turnover rate of dopamine and norepinephrine (as well as serotonin) in the brain (Diaz Heijtz et al., 2011), which could generally reduce pools in systemic circulation independent of microbial production (although factors...

And since most bacterial species known to colonize the gut can produce LPS when exposed to undigested food or mechanical stimulation (stretching or...
