Bacteria envelope our bodyAround 100 trillion10:1- bacteria to human cell ratioViruses have a 10:1 ratio with bacteria in the gutOver 5,600 separate species and strains of bacteria can inhabit the gutEach person has their own individual assortment of speciesBeneficial microbes crowd out pathogenic organisms and compete for nutrients
What Is OurMicrobiome?
What does it mean to have a more or less diverse population?
What Are Healthy Gut Bacteria?
Some benefits of having healthy gut bacteria?Counteract inflammation and control the growth of disease-causing bacteriaThe create a strong intestinal liningProduce vitamins and neurotransmitters, help with absorption of mineralsControl asthma and reduce allergy risksBenefit mood and mental healthFight obesity
What Are Healthy Gut Bacteria?
Exposure to substances that kill or decrease beneficial bacteriaLack of nutrients that feed healthy bacteriaStress
What Factors Negatively Impact ourMicrobiome
ObesityHave less diverse gutmicrobiomeMoreFirmicutes, and lessBacteroidetes“Gut bacterial transplants” have shown to change metabolism in people
Potential Negative Effects of Unhealthy Balance
Allergies, asthma, eczemaInflammationLeaky Gut SyndromeLarge proteins enter the body
Potential Negative Effects of Unhealthy Balance
A Few Effects on the BrainDecreased Brain-DerivedNeurotrophicFactorDecreased neurotransmitter productionIncreasedLipopolysaccharidesin the body
Potential Negative Effects of Unhealthy Balance
Unhealthy microbes create inflammationInflammation creates heat, swelling…Creates gaps in the gut epitheliaAllows large proteins to enter, along with thelipopolysaccharidelayer of Gram negative bacteria (like E. coli)LPS crosses the blood brain barrier to create inflammation in the brainLPS is implicated in Alzheimer’s, autism, & depression/anxiety
Potential Negative Effects of Unhealthy Balance
Gut bacteria interact with the lymphocytes in the GALT (Gut-Associated Lymphoid Tissue) to develop a fully functioning immune system.The GALT represents 70-80% of our body’s total immune system
The Immune System
