Patrick Hanaway MD - The GUT Microbiome as AntiOxidant (1 General CE Credit)

2023 Thaena Microbiome Symposium - The Rise of Oxidative Stress + Chronic Inflammation: An Ecosystem Approach.


This lecture explores the symbiotic relationship between the gut microbiome and oxidative stress, focusing on their roles in health and disease. It covers the impact of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) on the gut microbiota, the activation of redox enzymes, and the modulation of oxidative stress by microbial metabolites. The lecture also examines the connection between oxidative stress, gut-derived metabolites, and aging/healthspan, culminating in insights into nutrients and supplements that mitigate oxidative stress within the gastrointestinal tract.



  1. Describe the role(s) of the gut microbiome and oxidative stress in health and disease.
  2. The presence of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) affects the gut microbiome. Describe how the gut microbiome affects oxidative stress through activation of redox enzymes.
  3. Microbial metabolites directly affect oxidative stress. Define the specific metabolites that decrease (and/or increase) oxidative stress in the gut.
  4. Demonstrate the inter-relationship between oxidative stress, gut-derived metabolites, and aging/ healthspan.
  5. Determine which nutrients and nutritional supplements will decrease oxidative stress within the gastrointestinal tract.
