Link Between Alzheimer’s and Gut Is Confirmed


  • The bacteria in your intestines may influence brain functioning and can even promote neurodegeneration
  • In a study of 89 people, high blood levels of lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) and the short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) acetate and valerate were associated with large amyloid deposits in the brain
  • LPSs and SCFAs are markers of inflammation and proteins produced by intestinal bacteria
  • High levels of butyrate — an SCFA produced when gut bacteria ferment fiber — were associated with less amyloid
  • The study represents a continuation of prior research by the team, which found that the gut microbiota in people with Alzheimer’s disease differs from those without the condition; in those with Alzheimer’s, microbial diversity is reduced, with certain bacteria being overrepresented and other microbes decreased
  • Optimizing your gut flora is a key strategy to preventing Alzheimer’s and a host of other chronic diseases
