Gut microbiota and aging

TLDR
Recent findings on the physiological succession of gut microbiota across the life-cycle, the roles and mechanisms of Gut microbiota in healthy aging, alterations of gut bacteria and aging-associated diseases, and the gut microbiota-targeted anti-aging strategies are summarized.

Gut microbiome and aging nexus and underlying mechanism.

TLDR
This review discusses the pros and cons of using probiotics to enhance the health of seniors through focused management of the gut microbiota and lists dietary interventions and fecal microbiota transplantation.

The aging gut microbiome and its impact on host immunity

TLDR
The impact of age-related changes in the gut commensal community structure (introduced as microb-aging) on host-immune fitness and health is discussed and prebiotic- and probiotic clinical intervention trials aiming to reinforce age- related declines in immune cell functioning through microbiome modulation or rejuvenation are summarized.

The Roles of the Gut Microbiota and Chronic Low-Grade Inflammation in Older Adults With Frailty

TLDR
Identifying gut microbiota changes in the aging and frail populations and outlining how gut microbiota may be related to the pathogenesis of frailty, more specifically, in the regulation of gut-derived chronic inflammation are aimed at.

Interactions between dietary polyphenols and aging gut microbiota: A review

TLDR
The reciprocal interactions between polyphenols and gut microbiota are discussed and the latest findings on the effects ofpolyphenols on modulating intestinal bacteria during aging are summarized.

The gut microbiome as a modulator of healthy ageing

TLDR
The composition and function of the gut microbiome as it relates to ageing and ‘unhealthy’ ageing as well as the potential for microbiome-directed interventions to encourage ‘healthy” ageing are discussed.

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.

Inside out: Relations between the microbiome, nutrition, and eye health.

Contribution of Gut Microbiota to Immunological Changes in Alzheimer’s Disease

TLDR
It is proposed that modulating the composition of gut microbiota may alter ongoing inflammation and could therefore be a promising future strategy to fight progression of AD.

Gut microbiota and aging

TLDR
Detailed analyses have separated the microbiota into groups associated with age, long-term residential care, habitual diet, and degree of retention of a core microbiome, which provide a framework for analyzing microbiota-health associations and developing microbiota-based health surveillance for older adults.

Through Ageing, and Beyond: Gut Microbiota and Inflammatory Status in Seniors and Centenarians

TLDR
Evidence is provided for the fact that the ageing process deeply affects the structure of the human gut microbiota, as well as its homeostasis with the host's immune system, because of its crucial role in the host physiology and health status.

Mid-life microbiota crises: middle age is associated with pervasive neuroimmune alterations that are reversed by targeting the gut microbiome

TLDR
Targeting the gut microbiome with prebiotics can modulate the peripheral immune response and alter neuroinflammation in middle age, highlighting a novel strategy for the amelioration of age-related neuroinflammatory pathologies and brain function.

Shotgun Metagenomics of Gut Microbiota in Humans with up to Extreme Longevity and the Increasing Role of Xenobiotic Degradation

TLDR
The gut microbiome of centenarians and semisupercentenarians is more suited for xenobiotic degradation and shows a rearrangement in metabolic pathways related to carbohydrate, amino acid, and lipid metabolism.

Gut microbiota composition correlates with diet and health in the elderly

TLDR
The data support a relationship between diet, microbiota and health status, and indicate a role for diet-driven microbiota alterations in varying rates of health decline upon ageing.
