Long-term intake of Lactobacillus paracasei KW3110 prevents age-related chronic inflammation and retinal cell loss in physiologically aged mice

Figure 1AB. The intake of Lactobacillus paracasei KW3110 in aged mice affected the gut microbial composition. Feces were collected and subjected to flora analysis in young (3-months-old) and aged mice (22-months-old). (A) Distribution of gut microbiota (% of total 16S rDNA) at the phylum level. (B) Comparison of the Firmicutes to Bacteroidetes ratio. Values are presented as the means ± SEM of relative abundance of each phylum.
