Weight Loss and Age: 10 Tips for Losing Weight in Your 60s and 70s

People are living longer. Those in their 60s and 70s are enjoying a late “middle age” rather than settling in as senior citizens. They want to look and feel good as they take advantage of the increase in free time and decrease in family and work responsibilities that come with retirement. That’s why so many people in their 60s and 70s are trying to lose weight. But as our bodies change with age, so does weight loss. That’s why our nutrition experts have put together a list of weight loss tips for those living in their golden years. Achieving a healthy weight is very important for older adults because there are many risks associated with belly fat, says Current Obesity Reports. However, they explain, “approaches to weight loss must be considered critically given the dangers of...

Bacillus coagulans: The neglected probiotic

Bacillus coagulans strain GBI-30,6086 (remember: strain specificity is crucial) is an interesting microbe. Restoring or supplementing this microbe has been shown to exert substantial beneficial effects. The benefits that have been documented in humans include: Reduces symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome–therefore suggesting that it may reduce the species of SIBO. (B. coagulans produces several bacteriocins, natural antibiotics against the species of SIBO.) Increases the population of Faecalobacterium prausnitzii that is a vigorous producer of the metabolite, butyrate, that nourishes intestinal cells and provides benefits to the host (you), such as reduced insulin resistance, reduced blood sugar, triglycerides, and blood pressure. Reduces joint pain from osteoarthritis and redu...
Super-duper low-cost probiotic

Super-duper low-cost probiotic

Kefirs are a fermented dairy product that typically contain a dozen or more bacterial species and several fungal species. Kefirs are among the richest source of probiotic microbes, more than the several bacterial species provided by yogurts. Unfortunately, fermentation time is something that manufacturers cut short, as it slows down production. Imagine you have a shoe factory. Making one pair of shoes requires 48 hours, while a competitor can make a pair of shoes in 4 hours—who will make more money? The manufacturer who makes shoes in less time is more likely to make money, as they can produce shoes in larger volumes over a shorter time period. The same phenomenon applies to fermented foods: Commercial manufacturers will use the shortest time possible that yields an end-result that...

50 Shades of SIBO

Don’t worry: There’ll be no talk of handcuffs or blindfolds here, just a discussion about how and why the epidemic of SIBO can show itself in so many myriad ways in young and old, male and female, from head to toe. We often talk about small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO, as if it were an all-or-none thing—it is not. In fact, SIBO can show itself in an impressive variety of ways. It can show as the joint and muscle pains of fibromyalgia, the skin rash of rosacea, the neurological impairment of Parkinson’s disease, or the urgent bowel movements of irritable bowel syndrome. Recall that the many ways that SIBO shows itself are due to endotoxemia, the entry of bacterial breakdown products, especially lipopolysaccharide, LPS, into the bloodstream. This explains how intestinal b...
IBS-C, methanogenic SIBO, and L. reuteri

IBS-C, methanogenic SIBO, and L. reuteri

Our two favorite bacterial species/strains to ferment to make our age-reversing, socially-uplifting yogurt, L. reuteri DSM 17938 and ATCC PTA 6475, may also pose advantage for those of you with irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, IBS-C, more precisely known as methanogenic small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, methanogenic SIBO. Methane-producing Archaeal species, i.e., microbes that predate bacterial evolutionarily such as Methanobrevibacter smithii, consume hydrogen gas and carbon dioxide in the bowels to produce methane gas that slows intestinal propulsive activity—“peristalsis”—that pushes forward the digestive remains of a meal. Should methane-producing species (that may also pose health advantages, such as consumption of TMAO, a discussion for another day) overpopula...
