Diet-Microbiome Interactions in Older People: Effect on Inflammaging

Recorded May 18, 2023


“Inflammaging” describes the low-grade inflammation that arises from age-related changes to the immune system. Intersecting with age-related inflammation are age-related changes to the gut microbiome. These two systemic changes can modify disease risk, with that disease circling back to affect immune response and gut microbiome composition and function. This webinar discusses potential dietary interventions to target gut-microbiome changes linked to both “healthy” and “unhealthy aging” as well as knowledge gaps and research needed to further understand how to promote a “healthy aging” process.
