Small intestine vs. colon ecology and physiology: Why it matters in probiotic administration

We provide a detailed review unfolding how the physiological and anatomical differences between the small and large intestine affect gut microbiota composition, function, and plasticity. This information is key to understanding how gut microbiota manipulation, including probiotic administration, may strain-dependently transform host-microbe interactions at defined locations.

Concept Paper on Best Practices for Ethical Conduct of human Intervention Studies for Novel Food/ Ingredients/Processes/ Technology/ Claim Substantiation by ILSI India K-FFIG

The Concept Paper discusses the need for conducting Human Intervention Studies for substantiating “Claims” for Food Products, Food ingredients including the nutrients as such but not limited to vitamins, minerals, amino acids, botanical extracts, herbs, spices, spice oleoresins and bioactive substances. It also provides guidance on important considerations for conducting Human Intervention Trials.

Nutrition and Healthy Ageing in Asia: A Systematic Review

This publication reviewed several prospective cohort studies that evaluated the associations of intake of a single food or consumption of a single nutrient at midlife; adherence to various dietary patterns at midlife; and improved adherence to dietary patterns from mid- to late life with the likelihood of healthy ageing and its components, including cognitive function, physical function, and depression.

Research on gut microbiota has generally focused on fecal samples, representing luminal content of the large intestine. However, nutrient uptake is restricted to the small intestine. Abundant immune cell populations at this anatomical site combined with diminished mucus secretion and looser junctions (partly to allow for more efficient fluid and nutrient absorption) also results in intimate host-microbe interactions despite more rapid transit. It is thus crucial to dissect key differences in both ecology and physiology between small and large intestine to better leverage the immense potential of human gut microbiota imprinting, including probiotic engraftment at biological sensible niches. Here, we provide a detailed review unfolding how the physiological and anatomical differences between the small and large intestine affect gut microbiota composition, function, and plasticity. This information is key to understanding how gut microbiota manipulation, including probiotic administration, may strain-dependently transform host-microbe interactions at defined locations.

This review focusses its narrative on the intimate relationship between the host and its bacterial constituents of the small and large intestine.
