Intestinal Bugs and Weight Gain
Most of us unfortunately know that with the creep of middle age extra pounds tend to gravitate to our midriff – the dreaded middle age spread. However, new research suggests that there is a less obvious reason for the dreaded spare tire
and that there is another less visible reason to fucus on our gut if we want to loose weight.
Science has taken a closer interest in the relationship between our intestinal bacteria and weight gain.
Scientist revealed that our intestines harbor a whole world of bacteria aka gut microbiota that may play a considerable role in whether your body will store the food you eat as extra pounds. It stands to reason that this complex community of microorganism species living in our digestive tracts are not there by accident and that there would be a relationship between the gut bacteria and your weight.
Gut microorganisms benefit us by gleaning the energy from the fermentation of undigested carbohydrates and the subsequent absorption of short-chain fatty acids.
Our bodies each carry about 100 trillion microorganisms in our intestines, a number ten times greater than the total number of human cells in the body.
Research suggests that the relationship between gut flora and humans is not merely commensal or non-harmful coexistence, but rather a mutualistic relationship.
The microorganisms perform a host of useful functions, such as the previously mentioned fermentation of unused energy substrates, training the immune system, preventing growth of harmful, pathogenic bacteria, regulating the development of the gut, producing vitamins and producing hormones to direct our bodies to store fats.
The populations of microorganisms vary widely among different individuals but stay fairly constant within an individual over time, even though some alterations may occur with changes in lifestyle, diet and age
For many people putting on the extra weight could be the result of an imbalance in the populations of microorganisms in your gut.
Furthermore inflammatory signaling can promote a condition called metabolic syndrome, which causes weight gain, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels and a higher risk for developing diabetes and heart disease.
