Fecal transplants don’t work from one person to another. But what about transplants of your younger self?

Researchers at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital claim it’s a good idea for people to bank their stool samples when they’re young and healthy to rejuvenate their gut microbiome, according to a June 30 2022 article in The Scientist (1). Dr. Scott Weiss and Yang-Yu Liu propose this stool bank for fecal transplant(s) for use later in life.

As scientists discover the importance of personalized medicine as the most effective approach to addressing a person’s individually unique health care needs, these researchers and others believe the key to its efficacy lies in a person’s past.

Already, a company in Singapore is thinking along the same lines. Cord life is the first company to work with the Asian Microbiome Library in Singapore to collect “precision” databank of stool samples (2).
