Stool transplant: Here’s a new anti-aging remedy

Recently, we have to admit that the word “poo” has become very popular on social networks because of Dubai Porta Potty. And this article is about that.

Many people are willing to do anything to fight the signs of aging. That’s good, because it will take a great deal of motivation to maybe one day test this new cure that scientists are currently researching: poop transplantation.

A study published in the journal Microbiome therefore presents the startling results of an experiment conducted on mice. A team from the Quadram Institute, a food and health research center in England, operated on mice of a certain age with transplants of microbiota (groups of microorganisms) from the feces of much younger mice, then observed the changes caused.

The least we can say is that the improvements were there: The older mice had fewer problems with their eyes, gut and brain function after the surgery, reports Futurism.

If, on the other hand, the transplantation was carried out in the opposite direction, i.e. with a stool transfer from old mice to younger mice, the latter suddenly showed multiple signs of intestinal aging and inflammation.

The results of this study show once again the prominent role that gut microbes play in our health from the retina to the brain, but also in our aging. From there to the notions of a day for youth programs that would replace aging gut microbes with those from young donors? It’s certainly just a step, but it’s not gone yet.

At the moment, such medical care, whether through transplantation or nutrition, requires further research. The experiments are promising, but have so far only been carried out on mice. We’ll have to wait a little longer before we see its application in humans.

Meanwhile, fecal microbiota transplantation continues to advance. Applications are multiplying, showing early results in many areas, from malnutrition to symptoms of autism.
