Swedish Researchers Find Possible Link Between Muscle Growth and Gut Microbiome

The researchers discovered that a lack of microbiome was accompanied by reduced muscle mass,  which can increase the likelihood of metabolic disorders.

Swedish researchers at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm conducted a study on mice based on how the gut microbiome impacts the maintenance of skeletal muscle mass.

The head of the study, Sven Pettersson, knew from prior studies that the gut microbiome has a heavy involvement in organ function, metabolism, and immunity.

With two types of mice, a wild type of mouse with a microbiome, and a “germ-free” type of mouse without, the researchers performed a variety of tests. They concluded that the germ-free mice had weaker and more atrophied muscles compared to the wild mice at the end of the experiment. They also found that they mice had reduced gene-expression of muscular growth.

These germ free mice also had higher levels of amino acids, which were a sign of liver dysfunction, and had low levels of serum choline. Serum choline is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which relays signals between the nerves and the skeletal muscles. A lack of serum choline could result in a dysfunctional nervous system.

The researchers discovered that a lack of microbiome was accompanied by reduced muscle mass, which can increase the likelihood of metabolic disorders.

In another part of the study, the researchers discovered that transplanting the gut microbiome from the wild mice into germ-free mice reduced muscular atrophy and improved metabolic capacity of muscle. The researchers concluded that treating the germ-free mice with the fatty acids naturally produced by a gut biome temporarily reversed muscular atrophy and restored of muscle strength,

Pettersson and his group still want to conduct more studies based on this one to further characterize microbial function and how they could impact skeletal muscular function, but this initial study shows promising results for gut health in humans as well.

"AEON is life changing and gut changing for me! I have been struggling constantly with my bloating issues and bowel movement. And being a female, this can create such negative impact in my head and overall body positivity. When I started taking AEON, within 24 hours to 48 hours of taking it, I have less to little bloating episodes, I feel leaner overall especially in my stomach area, and my bowel movement is more regular. Also, the absorption of my supplements is more noticeable during my workout sessions because of my healthier gut flora. AEON has been part of our daily routine, and recently, I have been sipping AEON infuse water during my shift at work. I can't do without it. It is a must in our household."

"I had a intestine health issue that used to cause me fatigue, restless sensation, brain fog low energy and low brain function. And the connection brain intestine is so strong and real. So I started drinking AEON and I’ve been experiencing the benefits of it in a short period of time. Now I feel more energy, I’m able to be more focused, my intestine is much better and also my brain in general is functioning great. My whole body health is much better now. I’m able to do my daily activities and trainings and much better performance and quality! Thank you AEON"
