Aging is associated with a loss of diversity in the composition of the gut microbiome. A new study looked at gut bacteria from people of varying age ranges and found that the healthiest elderly people that were 90-years-old had a composition of gut bacteria that was similar to people that were 30-years-old. This suggests that maintaining the diversity of your gut as you age may be a biomarker of healthy aging.
