Hypertension is a global health issue, and a reduced exercise capacity is unavoidable for older people. According to recent clinical studies, the intestinal microbiota play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of many human diseases. We investigated whether specific alterations in the gut microbiota contribute to the reduced exercise capacity of elderly patients with hypertension. This study enrolled 56 subjects, and all patients performed a cardiopulmonary exercise test and underwent fecal… 
Gut microbiota dysbiosis in Chinese children with type 1 diabetes mellitus: An observational study
TLDR
The functional changes in the T1DM-associated fecal microbiota suggest that these fecal microbes were associated with altered functions and metabolic activities, such as glycan biosynthesis and metabolism and lipid metabolism, which might play vital roles in the pathogenesis and development of T1 DM.
Relationship Between Gut Microbial Health, Exercise, Race, and Hypertension: Updating Mechanistic Perspective
TLDR
This short communication will provide a contextual update concerning the mechanistic perspective of exercise induced improvement in hypertension and potential impact of exercise in mediating gut health and this significant racial health disparity.
Effect of an 8-week Exercise Training on Gut Microbiota in Physically Inactive Older Women.
TLDR
It is indicated that an 8-week exercise training may induce partial changes in relative abundance and OTU clustering of gut microbiota in physically inactive elderly women, and exercise may increase the abundance of bacteria associated with anti-inflammation such as Verrucomicrobia, reduce the abundances associated with pro- inflammation such as Proteobacteria.
Proportional changes in the gut microbiome: a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and dementia?
TLDR
A preliminary comparison of the two cohorts with regard to the gut microbiome revealed that enterotype I (Bacteroides >30%) was most prevalent amongst the healthy volunteers, followed by the CAD control group, patients with CAD, patients without dementia, and patients with dementia (77 years) (Fig. 1).
Short-chain fatty acids accompanying changes in the gut microbiome contribute to the development of hypertension in patients with preeclampsia.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that butyrate can directly regulate BP in vivo, suggesting its potential as a therapeutic agent for PE and the first evidence linking GM dysbiosis and reduced faecal SCFA to PE is provided.
Aging, Gut Microbiota and Metabolic Diseases: Management through Physical Exercise and Nutritional Interventions
TLDR
This review summarizes the role and compositional changes of the GM in aging and its modulation through nutritional interventions and physical exercise as a strategy to counteract the aging process and the related metabolic diseases.
The Effects of Lifestyle and Diet on Gut Microbiota Composition, Inflammation and Muscle Performance in Our Aging Society
TLDR
Key nutrition-related concerns include the need for adequate energy and protein intake for preventing low muscle mass and a higher demand for specific nutrients that can modify the composition, diversity, and metabolic capacity of the gut microbiota, and may provide a practical means of enhancing gut and systemic immune function.
Stratification of athletes’ gut microbiota: the multifaceted hubs associated with dietary factors, physical characteristics and performance
TLDR
Differences in athlete gut microbiota lead to establishment of a random forest classifier based on taxonomical and functional biomarkers, capable of differentiating elite athletes and non-elite athletes with high accuracy.
Therapeutic Effects of Prebiotics in Constipation: A Review.
TLDR
Prebiotics are effective treatments for chronic idiopathic constipation and showed improvement in the stool consistency, number of bowel moments and bloating, Although which prebiotic formulary would promote improved symptoms of constipation is still not clear.
A Review of the Role of the Gut Microbiome in Personalized Sports Nutrition
TLDR
This area of research can benefit from recent developments in the general field of personalized nutrition and has the potential to expand the knowledge of the nexus between the gut microbiome, lifestyle, and individual physiology.

Gut Dysbiosis Is Linked to Hypertension
TLDR
It is demonstrated that high blood pressure is associated with gut microbiota dysbiosis, both in animal and human hypertension, and dietary intervention to correct gut microbiota could be an innovative nutritional therapeutic strategy for hypertension.
Gut microbiota dysbiosis contributes to the development of hypertension
TLDR
A novel causal role of aberrant gut microbiota in contributing to the pathogenesis of hypertension is described and the significance of early intervention for pre-hypertension was emphasized.
The gut and intestinal bacteria in chronic heart failure.
TLDR
The gut poses an interesting target for therapeutic interventions in patients with CHF because disturbed intestinal microcirculation and barrier function in CHF seem to trigger cytokine generation, thereby contributing to further impairment in cardiac function.
Signatures of early frailty in the gut microbiota
TLDR
There was a striking negative association between frailty and gut microbiota diversity, underpinned by specific taxonomic associations that represent targets for diagnostic surveillance, or for intervention studies to improve vitality in ageing.
Factors Influencing the Gut Microbiota, Inflammation, and Type 2 Diabetes.
TLDR
There are preliminary studies that suggest that the consumption of probiotic bacteria such as those found in yogurt and other fermented milk products can beneficially alter the composition of the gut microbiome, which in turn changes the host metabolism.
Far from the Eyes, Close to the Heart: Dysbiosis of Gut Microbiota and Cardiovascular Consequences
TLDR
Evidence is reported from the literature, as well as a few controversial reports, regarding the putative role of gut microbiota dysbiosis-induced cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis, which are common comorbidities of metabolic dysfunction.
Gut microbiome and serum metabolome alterations in obesity and after weight-loss intervention
TLDR
These findings identify previously unknown links between intestinal microbiota alterations, circulating amino acids and obesity, suggesting that it may be possible to intervene in obesity by targeting the gut microbiota.
The dual role of short fatty acid chains in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disease models
TLDR
It is demonstrated that oral administration of SCFAs ameliorated the disease severity of systemic autoimmune inflammatory conditions mediated by lymphocytes such as experimental autoimmune encephalitis and collagen-induced arthritis.
Intestinal microbiota metabolism of L-carnitine, a nutrient in red meat, promotes atherosclerosis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that metabolism by intestinal microbiota of dietary l-carnitine, a trimethylamine abundant in red meat, also produces TMAO and accelerates atherosclerosis in mice, and intestinal microbiota may contribute to the well-established link between high levels of red meat consumption and CVD risk.
