The Healthy Grain BARLEYmax™ and Kebari Barley

Developed by CSIRO scientists, BARLEYmaxTM wholegrains represent the next evolution of superfoods, an enhanced wholegrain. The credentials of BARLEYmaxTM begin with it’s history. It was bred using traditional plant breeding processes, and is 100% GM free. The enhanced wholegrain discovered by Dr Morell and his team at the CSIRO contains two times the dietary fibre and four times the resistant starch of a regular grain.

Exercise immunology: Future directions – ScienceDirect

Highlights
• The immune system is responsive to the physiological stress imposed by the exercise workload.

• Technological advances now allow a systems biology approach to exercise immunology.

• The immune response to exercise is influenced by small-molecule metabolites and proteins.

• Immunometabolism has provided new insights into how metabolites influence immune function.

• Exercise has a modulating effect on gut microbial populations.

The Vagus Nerve is Key to Well-Being | Elemental

“The vagus nerve, also called the “10th cranial nerve,” is the longest, largest, and most complex of the cranial nerves, and in some ways it’s also the least understood. Experts have linked its activity to symptom changes in people with migraine headaches, inflammatory bowel disease, depression, epilepsy, arthritis, and many other common ailments. The more science learns about the vagus nerve, the more it seems like a better understanding of its function could unlock new doors to treating all manner of human suffering.”

What is The Gut-Brain Axis? An Exploration of The Communication Pathways Between The Brain, The Gut, And The Microbiota

What is The Gut-Brain Axis? An Exploration of The Communication Pathways Between The Brain, The Gut, And The Microbiota

“Key Learning Objectives:

– Understand the importance of a gut-brain communication system

– Learn about signaling pathways in the gut-brain axisLearn how the gut microbiota influences brain function

– Discover how the gut microbiota can be targeted to influence brain function

WHAT IS THE GUT-BRAIN AXIS?

The gut, its microbes, and the brain are connected by a complex communication and regulation system called the gut-brain axis. The gut-brain axis (also known as brain-gut axis, microbiota-gut-brain axis, gut-brain connection) is a bidirectional signaling network made up of neurons, hormones, immune cells, and microbial molecules.[1,2] It is part of a larger system that informs the brain of the internal state and health of our body. This sense is called interoception and it’s crucial for the maintenance of physiological balance in our body, a state known as homeostasis.[3] “

Discordant transmission of bacteria and viruses from mothers to babies at birth | SpringerLink

Discordant transmission of bacteria and viruses from mothers to babies at birth | SpringerLink

“The maternal gut microbiome significantly influences infant gut microbiome acquisition. Vertical transmission of the bacterial microbiome is substantially higher compared to vertical transmission of the virome. However, the degree of similarity between the maternal and infant gut bacterial microbiome and virome did not vary by delivery route. The greater similarity of the bacterial microbiome and virome between twin pairs than unrelated twins may reflect a shared environmental exposure. Thus, differences of the inter-generation transmissibility at birth between the major kingdoms of microbes indicate that the foundation of these microbial communities are shaped by different rules.”

Probiotic bacteria as modulators of cellular senescence: emerging concepts and opportunities

Probiotic bacteria as modulators of cellular senescence: emerging concepts and opportunities

Probiotic bacteria are increasingly gaining importance in human nutrition owing to their multifaceted health beneficial effects. Studies have also shown that probiotic supplementation is useful in mitigating age-associated oxi-inflammatory stress, immunosenescence, and gut dysbiosis thereby promoting health and longevity. However, our current understanding of the process of aging suggests a strong interrelationship between the accumulation of senescent cells and the development of aging phenotype, including the predisposition to age-related disorders. The present review studies the documented pro-longevity effects of probiotics and highlights how these beneficial attributes of probiotics could be related to the mitigation of cellular senescence.

What is a stack and whats in one? – Opinion

So you have a bunch of information on things that can help you live healthier and longer. What next?

Typically what a biohacker does is builds a stack. A stack is a collection of supplements that is aimed at a certain goal.

I’m going to give you some insight into my “pet rabbit” stack 😉 My rabbit is 104kgs and around 40 years old (Super Rabbit 😉 My rabbit is wanting to live healthier and longer as well as improve cognetive function and avoid cognitive decline. She wants to grow her hair and keep it a healthy colour and improve general health and fitness.

Firstly a dosing routine showing morning and evening dosing and which to take at what time of day for the desirable outcome.

Cooking food alters the microbiome: Raw vs. cooked diets have distinct effects on both mouse and human gut microbes — ScienceDaily

Scientists at UC San Francisco and Harvard University have shown for the first time that cooking food fundamentally alters the microbiomes of both mice and humans, a finding with implications both for optimizing our microbial health and for understanding how cooking may have altered the evolution of the our microbiomes during human prehistory.

The Gut Microbiome Affects Muscle Strength in Older Adults | | LEAF

A role for the gut microbiome on the health and functioning of many tissues, including the brain, liver, kidney, and adiposity, has been widely reported in the literature. Interestingly, 2019 might be the year that the role of the gut microbiome on skeletal muscle (i.e. the gut-muscle axis) comes into greater focus.The influence of the gut microbiome on muscle strengthIn April, Nay et al. reported that endurance exercise capacity was reduced in mice that do not contain a microbiome (germ-free mice, GFM) when compared with conventionally raised, microbiome-containing mice. This finding suggests that there are microbes in the gut that positively influence aerobic exercise performance.

10(Z)-hexadecenoic acid, a fatty acid found in the soil based bacterium Mycobacterium vaccae, interacts with immune cells to inhibit pathways that drive inflammation and increases resilience to stress. Researchers say the findings could bring us one step closer to developing a microbe-based “stress vaccine”.
