  1. Yes, that was my thinking. I found one table, in this guide by a testing company https://www.diagnosticsolutionslab.com/sites/default/files/u16/GI-MAP-Interpretive-Guide.pdf page 19. It lists some commensal/normal bacteria. But, searching for some of these, for example, if you look at Bacteroides fragilis, in this table listed as a commensal bacteria with important role, it is also associated with disease, depending on the context https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2176045/ So I guess its up to the bacteria been in the right level.
  2. yeah... but these are not always peer reviewed sources. Like with the gut bacteria list, it was sources from this "textbook" http://www.textbookofbacteriology.net/normalflora_3.html but the textbook it self doesnt provide clear references to the sources. If you look, Bacteroides fragilis, one of the species listed, this species is rather a pathobiont, rather than a benefical bacteria. Anyway, subtle difference, but I was hoping to hear from anyone who knew of a study showing a list of strictly beneficial, comensal, bacteria. Anyway, I just wanted to see what species people came up wi
  3. yes... but its Wikipedia...which I love, but Im after peer reviewed sources...
  4. Thanks for your comment, dimreepr... it led me to this article Colonization of the human gut by bovine bacteria present in Parmesan cheese https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-09303-w didnt know about that! That's true, that's one good example, but a bit broad, need to check if we know what species are actually responsible.... Looking for any other good examples like this... Thanks, Sensei
  5. Hi, Can anyone mention some key *human* gut (large intestine) bacterial species that are considered beneficial, confirmed by peer-reviewed research? There is a lot of literature establishing links between diseases and higher or lower diversity or with particular species of gut bacteria, plus there is a lot of variation from person to person in terms of microbial composition. But, is there a consensus on some gut bacterial species that are beneficial to the body, and commonly found in anyone? Thanks! Freddy
