A gut feeling

I believe that even though the below study says the researchers don’t know what comes first, i.e. an imbalanced microbiome that causes Alzheimers or Alzheimers that throws the microbiome off, that it is the former. My clinically-informed hypothesis is that if people eat and live to keep their microbiomes healthy, the chances of succumbing to any form of dementia will be slim. When I stopped drinking alcohol that damages the microbiome and added aerobic probiotics to my daily diet I felt MUCH better mentally and physically.—MR

Early Alzheimer’s Linked to Gut Microbiome Changes

Changes in gut bacteria were linked with very early Alzheimer’s disease, cross-sectional data showed. Gut microbial profiles of cognitively normal people with preclinical Alzheimer’s disease — defined as asymptomatic abnormal brain amyloid — were distinct from those of individuals without preclinical Alzheimer’s, reported Beau Ances, MD, PhD, and Gautam Dantas, PhD, both of Washington University School of Medicine, and co-authors.
