Our gut is the foundation of good health
Your gut and your immune system are very closely linked. The digestive tract is home to 70 to 80 percent of your immune tissue. The human gut is home to trillions of microorganisms, which are collectively known as the microbiome. This ecosystem in the gut contains bacteria and other microorganisms that are both beneficial and detrimental to your health. These microbes play a vital role in your gut health, supporting digestion and the synthesis of vitamins.
However, when your microbiome becomes out of balance (meaning your beneficial bacteria is decreased relative to your not-so-beneficial bacteria) you may begin to notice a wide range of undesirable conditions, including obesity and Type 2 diabetes, as well as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
At this moment, two to six pounds of microbes are living in and on you.
Currently, 1 out of every 3 people will develop Type 2 Diabetes in their lifetime.
Your body is comprised of 15 trillion human cells and 90 trillion bacterial cells. You could say we are more bacteria than we are human.
