The microbial balance in your gut is responsible for absorbing nutrients, and affects your emotions, perception of pain, and stress response…. says science!
Goodbye bad bacteria, hello Oregarlix. Antimicrobial force and prebiotics for whole-body wellness.
According to Dr. Siri Carpenter, author of amazing article “That gut feeling," gut bacteria produce HUNDREDS of neurochemicals that the brain uses to regulate basic physiological processes as well as mental ones such as learning, memory, and mood.
Therefore, a weak balance between beneficial and disease-causing bacteria in your gut can alter your brain chemistry, which could lead to anxiety and stress. In fact... your gut bacteria produce nearly 95% of the serotonin your body needs!
Why is your gut called “second brain” anyway? Now you know why.
So, here’s the thing… there is a very strong relationship between the immune system and the bacteria in your gut. Your gut represents almost 70% of the entire immune system, and it is where you can find most of your antibody cells, your FIRST barrier against pathogens.
A well-balanced microbiota could reduce inflammation, alleviate food allergies, and prevent autoimmune diseases and infections.
Again, we have A LOT of bacteria: 10 times more than the number of cells in our body. There is even evidence that those bacteria can influence the energy we extract from food, our lipid metabolism, and our hormones.
But, as you might suppose… diet and lifestyle play a key role in maintaining a nice bacteria ecosystem. A recent study from 2018 said that dietetic intervention (including intake of fiber and vegetables) could then be a good strategy to aid weight loss.
