Clemente, J.C. et al. (2012) The Impact of the Gut Microbiota on Human Health: An Integrative Review. Cell 148, March 16: 1258-1270
"The human gut harbours diverse microbes that play a fundamental role in the well-being of their host."
"The microbiota plays a major role in health and disease in humans; indeed, it is sometimes referred to as our "forgotten organ"."
"Imbalances in the composition of the microbiota, and the induced changes in interactions with the host, relate to diseases such as obesity and Crohn’s disease."
"Perhaps even more importantly, the gut microbiota interacts with the immune system, providing signals to promote the maturation of immune cells and the normal development of immune functions."
What You Need to Know:
Taking antibiotics and what you eat have a profound effect on the number and type of bacteria in your gut and the type and number of bacteria in your gut profoundly effects your gut health and, most importantly, the health of your gut has a profound effect on your physical and even emotional health.
"Dietary changes in particular have been shown to have significant effects on the microbiota." "One of the major factors that can perturb the composition of the microbiota is antibiotic use."
One of the things that you need to "eat" or consume on a daily basis are healthy bacteria or probiotics. Humans now consume one-millionth of the healthy bacteria our ancestors consumed and along with this deficient intake has come exponential increases in allergies, autoimmune disease, digestive disorders, immune deficiency, and even emotional health issues.
Other things you need to consume to maintain healthy gut flora are essential fatty acids, vitamin D, and raw vegetables. Dairy-free, wheat-free, and soy-free fermented foods like sauerkraut and Kombucha are also good sources of healthy bacteria. The healthy human flora or healthy gut bacteria were established long before humans ever ate dairy, wheat, or soy; and bacteria from these products are not part of the healthy normal human flora – don’t get fooled!
What You Need to Do:
You need to ensure that you and your family get sufficient daily intake of dairy-free, wheat-free, and soy-free probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and raw vegetables! Ask our Doctor about the Innate Choice® Essential Nutrient System™ that includes Probiotic Sufficiency™ and OmegA+D Sufficiency™ and make sure you eat plenty of raw veggies!
