Microbiome Predicts Early Alzheimer’s

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

Very interesting new article in the journal Science Translational Medicine about how the composition of the gut microbiome can be used as an early predictor of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Here is a link to the article = https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/scitranslmed.abo2984

The article is important because it showed that individuals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have an altered gut microbiome, and these changes occur early in the disease course, and also that the gut microbiomes of people with preclinical AD (indicated by altered brain amyloid and tau proteins) had a different composition from that of healthy individuals.
