Can you extend your lifespan and live a long healthy life by taking a new generation of probiotics? Read on to find your answer.
A growing body of evidence suggests microbiome-enriched probiotics could hold the key to longevity. Recently, a study published in Nature revealed that certain probiotic, prebiotic or their combination (synbiotic) formulations could help fruit flies live longer.
The researchers noted that these formulations targeted the three major causes of accelerated aging and age-related diseases – inflammation, oxidative stress and the loss of mitochondrial complex integrity.
The desire to live a long life has always fascinated human beings since time immemorial. In the quest of longevity, people have experimented with various things. For example, a healthy diet, increased physical activity, and abstinence from known hazards such as smoking and heavy drinking. Not to forget the role of vaccines and prophylactic use of certain medications that have, to some extent, helped extend lifespan.
Microbiome-Optimized Probiotics for Longevity: What Did the Study Find?
The researchers treated male fruit flies with the probiotic or synbiotic formulations and measured the parameters of age-associated abnormalities such as weight, glucose control, and, blood fat levels. Moreover, they also counted the number of number of living flies daily for more than 30 days.
At the end of the study, they found that:
- The treated flies lived 24 to 26 days longer compared to the flies on a normal diet.
- By day 30, the treated flies attained a significant healthy loss of weight.
- Both total glucose and blood fat levels dropped significantly in the treated flies, which indicated a better metabolic health.
Most notably, these finding corroborate a 2015 study, which had noted that the next-generation probiotics could target the various facets of metabolic syndrome, and thus boost longevity.
Additionally, a 2011 study published in the journal PLOS concluded – “ingestion of specific probiotics may be an easy approach for improving intestinal health and increasing lifespan”. The study used mice models.
All things considered, microbiome-optimized probiotics are a promising new tool in the fight against aging and age-associated diseases. These probiotics not only extend longevity but also reduce the risk of numerous chronic diseases, thereby enhancing the quality of life.
Do Available Probiotics Confer the Same Benefits?
No, most probably. It is because:
- Most probiotics lose 80-90% of the friendly bacteria just during the storage before you buy them. As a result, these formulations confer too little benefits, if any.
- Next, nearly half of the bacteria that reach the digestive tract cannot survive the harsh pH and eventually die in your gut.
- Finally, the tiny amount of bacteria that survives all the odds falls prey to the resistance from the bacteria that are naturally present in the gut.
