The antimicrobial properties of kefir, Gulf War Syndrome and gut bacteria, and the effects of high-fat nutrition on gut flora

September 2, 2009

Some interesting and unexpected research finds today:

On kefir, which I am beginning to make in my home

Resoution of Recurrent Clostridium difficile-associated Diarrhea Using Staggered Antibiotic Withdrawal and Kefir

Antimicrobial and healing activity of kefir and kefiran extract

And a few interesting studies recruiting now…

Bacterial Overgrowth Associated With Chronic Multisymptom Illness Complex
Taking the super obvious connection between SIBO and CFS past the obvious and examining the symptoms occurring specifically in Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) patients! Phenomenal!
And…

A controlled feeding experiment

“The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of dietary fat, in standard formulation, on the composition of the human microbiome in a prospective study of normal volunteers. Participants will be randomly assigned to either a high fat or low fat diet for 10 days. The gut microbiome will be phylotyped in fecal samples as well as in bacteria adherent to the colonic mucosa prior to, and during the course of the dietary interventions.”

I’m definitely going to want to follow these two for outcomes.
