Dementia, Gut bacteria and Progurt

We at Progurt, believe that you deserve a long and healthy life, a life of gratitude, joy and happiness. Progurt’s gut care range was developed to restore the most beneficial bacteria (HPI bacteria of human origin) to the gut, restore essential minerals to the body; restore natural sleep patterns and compliment natural blood flow without affecting body physiology directly.

A new study sheds light on the potential role of diet in preventing dementia. The analysis explored the relationship between gut health and Alzheimer’s disease, uncovering a strong link between specific types of gut bacteria and the likelihood of developing dementia.

The analysis revealed that an imbalance of gut bacteria can have negative effects on the immune system and is linked to various diseases, including depression, heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. This highlights the importance of maintaining a healthy balance of gut microbiota for overall health and disease prevention.

A recent study by Dr. Naoki Saji, published in Scientific ReportsTrusted Source, supports the concept that changes in the microbiota affect dementia risk. The study of microbiome metabolites highlighted different gut microbiota in those with dementia than those without, specifically linking higher fecal lactic acid concentration to a 60% lower risk of dementia.

He also went on to claim that a “Japanese style diet has [a] causal relationship [with] dementia risk.” Dr Saji is a neurologist and a gerontologist, and currently Vice Director in the Center for Comprehensive Care and Research on Memory Disorders in Obu, Japan,
