I stumbled across this article today about
Ruminococcaceae, secondary bile acids, and UC (they were specifically looking at a group of UC J-pouch patients vs a group of non-UC J-pouch patients) and thought those of you that follow gut microbiome research would find it interesting. I was following much more closely around 2014/15 when I had my microbiome sequenced by the now defunct Ubiome.https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2020/02/stanford-scientists-link-ulcerative-colitis-to-missing-gut-micro.html
Which led to me wondering if there's a way to encourage an increase of Ruminococcaceae.....walnuts apparently!https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/s0955286317301110
I love walnuts but my gastro tells me to avoid whole nuts when I'm flaring, so I haven't had any for a while. I'll buy some ground walnuts that I can add to smoothies (I usually use ground almonds).
