Physical activity is considered a significant factor in the anti-aging process. In this sense, there is increasing scientific and clinical interest in the connections of nutrition and health as part of the aging progression. Studies have shown that there is an association between aging problems and gut microbiota performance. We performed this narrative review used the following databases: PubMed, Web of Science and Medline. The research was performed using the following keywords: [[[Aging] or [Senescence] or [Biological Aging] or [Aging, Biological] or [Aged] or [Aged, 80 and over] or [Life Expectancy] or [Length of Life]] in combination with [[microbiota] or [microbiotas] or [Microbiome] or [microbiomes] or [Human Microbiome] or [Human microbiomes] or [microbiomes, Human] or [Microbiome, Human]] not [[disease]]]. We selected analyzed 35 studies after search. The main results indicated that, associating care with the microbiota and physical activity practices in older adults can increase their chances of longevity. A lower prevalence of Bifidobacteria increase the chance of gastrointestinal infection with lower intestinal protection. The immunomodulatory properties of probiotics increase the prevention of infectious disease-related morbidity and mortality in older adults. There is still no research on the impact of the association between the care of the microbiota in older adults practicing physical activity. This review has the potential to save geriatric therapists time by providing comprehensive summaries of large information regarding the probiotics associated with physical practices used in palliative care in geriatric health.
