Is healthy aging in our gut?

Gaorui Bian examined the gut microbiome of more than 1000 very healthy Chinese spanning the age between 3 and over 100 years. Studying the extremely healthy cohort of Chinese from the Jiangsu Province made it possible to investigate age related changes in the microbiome. Interestingly they found that the composition of the microbiome of the healthy aged is comparable to that of younger people. The microbiome remains relatively stable from 30 to 100, while most differences are found before the age 20.
