An article published recently in Frontiers in immunology (Aug 2018) has shown a link between a high fibre diet and reduced brain ageing in mice. The mechanism was shown to be through colonic fermentation creating short chain fatty acids (SCFS’s), which were further absorbed and utilised by the brain. It has been shown from numerous research papers that increasing circulatory butyrate can have a positive effect on brain health. This latest research provides the link between the circulatory butyrate and colonic fermentation of fibre.
The figure below shows several of the mechanisms of action:
