Rhythms, the Glucksman has partnered with APC Microbiome Ireland SFI Research Centre at UCC, where world-leading researchers are investigating how gut microbes can influence human circadian
rhythms to impact obesity, metabolic disease and brain function.
Prior research has shown that heart disease has a circadian
Recruitment of immune cells during lung inflammation displays a circadian
These transcription factors also seem to influence circadian
According to researchers, the body's circadian
clock that organises bodily activities over a 24-hour period contributes to normal variations in blood pressure and heart function over the course of the day.
Panda, it's easy to identify problems with your circadian
clock, and with some lifestyle modifications you can restore balance to your circadian
rhythm and reap the long-term rewards in the form of better sleep, greater health, and reduced risk of disease.
Not only does this gene expression affect circadian
rhythm, it also affects muscle function and metabolism: "Given that skeletal muscle is an essential tissue for energy metabolism homeostasis, it is not surprising that skeletal muscle circadian
activity and metabolic processes are closely integrated." Chronic circadian
disruptions are linked to altered lipid profiles and/or insulin resistance.
The researchers found that circadian
phase and circadian
misalignment impact glucose tolerance through different mechanisms.
This daily adjustment of body functions was named 'circadian
rhythm', Circa' (about, around) and 'Diem' (Day).
Did you know that as one ages, their body's circadian
rhythm changes, too?
The molecular circadian
clocks in mammals and fruit flies represent two major lineages of animals: deuterostome chordates and protostome ecdysozoans, respectively.
rhythms are variations in physiology and behaviour that govern the human's sleep patterns, body temperature, immune systems and hormones.
