Gut Health and Immunity
How Gut Health Contributes To Immunity?
Here is a fun fact. About 70-percent of the immune system resides in the gut. Simply said, a healthy gut contributes to a strong immune system. The gut microbiome refers to a collection of bacteria, viruses and fungi that live in the gut which are either extremely important for your health or may cause you diseases.
The gut microbiome refers to a collection of bacteria, viruses and fungi that live in the gut which are either extremely important for your health or may cause you diseases. The gut microbiome is significantly important in regulating the immune system. Imbalance of these gut microbial communities can compromise your immune system and may lead to autoimmune disorders. One of the roles of gut microbiome in the immune system is helping to regulate the development of cells that help to recognize pathogens such as macrophage. Macrophage is a specialised cell involved in the detection and destruction of bacteria and other harmful organisms. Intestinal macrophages represent the largest population of tissue macrophages in the body.
How to Improve Gut Health?
Your gut contains up to 100 trillion types of bacteria. Don’t be too alarmed at that number, though. This is a good thing. These bacteria are necessary for survival. They work together to aid in digestion, supply nutrients to the body, and to keep you healthy.
One of the ways to improve your gut health according to science is to increase your intake of probiotics by consuming more probiotic-rich foods, including fermented foods like kimchi, kefir, sauerkraut, and yogurt. Alternatively, you can also consume probiotic supplements.
Probiotics are live microorganisms which, when consumed in adequate amounts as part of food, confer a health benefit on the host. The beneficial effects of probiotics have been widely demonstrated. This include blocking pathogenic bacterial effects, promote intestinal epithelial cell survival, enhance barrier function, stimulate protective responses from intestinal epithelial cells, enhance the innate immunity and modulate pathogen-induced inflammation.
