In my last post, I mentioned that my video titled What Is the Longevity Bacteria Discovered in Japanese Centenarians? (The Kyotango Study Explained) had reached 36K views. I’m excited to share that it has now grown to 46K views and continues to gain traction.

The sequel to this video has also seen impressive engagement, nearing 10K views. This follow-up video delves into how to increase the abundance of longevity bacteria found in the senior citizens of the Kyotango region in Japan, which boasts three times more centenarians than the national average.

The key to their longevity appears to be butyrate-producing bacteria. According to the Kyotango Longevity Cohort Study, a high presence of these bacteria seems crucial for maintaining health into old age.

But what exactly are the benefits of butyrate-producing bacteria?

These bacteria act as probiotics and are essential for various biological functions, including balancing gut microbiota, maintaining the mucosal barrier, modulating the immune response, preventing infections, and regulating energy expenditure. Additionally, researchers found a correlation between the abundance of butyrate-producing bacteria in the guts of Kyotango residents and their muscle mass, with very few cases of sarcopenia among them.

Fortunately, you can increase the presence of butyrate-producing bacteria through diet. There are five types of foods that promote the growth of these beneficial bacteria in your gut.
