Who’s the Boss of Number 2: us or our microbiome? It depends on your perspective!!!
We are outnumbered…. in fact Bacteria outnumber our cells (10:1). While bacteria live forever, we are temporary. In fact, our microbiome consists of 100 trillions bacteria of the gut. This microbiome is established by vaginal birth and breastfeeding, maintained by diet, environment and the host (us). Threatened by antibiotics, antiseptics, loss of food diversity, sugars, certain grains and more. Bacteria manipulates the host in many ways.
Actions of our microbiome are:
- Alter gene expression in childhood
- Manipulate GABA and glutamate via Vagus.
- Manipulate gut permeability.
- Manipulate sleep, appetite and weight.
- Provide essential nutrients to the host.
