a study from researchers at the Scripps Research Institute develops molecules capable of reducing unhealthy gut bacteria to reverse the narrowing of arteries in an animal study. The team states their cyclic peptide molecules remodeled the mouse gut microbiota into a healthier state to reduce cholesterol levels strongly inhibiting atherosclerosis.

Molecules alter the gut microbiota to reverse narrowing of arteries in an animal study.

Atherosclerosis is a chronic disease involving the build-up of plaque consisting of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other blood-based substances. Sequentially, the plaque hardens and narrows the arteries to limit the … Continue Reading Molecules alter the gut microbiota to reverse narrowing of arteries in an animal study.
