Microbiome: Gut Bugs and You | Warren Peters | TEDxLaSierraUniversity
Can gut bugs change the world? Join Warren Peters on a journey into understanding your microbiome and the new discoveries changing the way we understand diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer's disease, autism, and our everyday health and wellness. If asked, he will tell you that the first part of his medical career was in general surgery, where “if something is wrong with you, I will cut it out." The next was dedicated to lifestyle and natural medicines, where “if something is wrong with you, just try harder." And finally, the last part is dedicated to the molecular and genetic basis of obesity, where "if something is wrong with you, it is the fault of your parents and the changing environment." Within these three perspectives, reside the virtues of common sense and wisdom. He obtained his medical degree from Loma Linda University, his surgical training at the Mason Clinic in Seattle Washington, and, his Master’s degree in biostatistics and epidemiology from Loma Linda University. He is privileged to travel and lecture nationally and internationally on topics of nutrition, wholeness, and wellness. He has practiced surgical care, wholistic care, and, primary care in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and California. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Keto + Fiber: How Short-Chain Fatty Acids Help Weight Loss
A well-rounded ketogenic diet that includes fibrous foods helps your gut bacteria produce short-chain fatty acids, which help you lose weight. Short-chain fatty acids (like their name suggests) are short chains of carbons that are produced in your gut by the fermentation of undigestible carbohydrates. They provide you with many benefits including the production of energy. Did you ever wonder how gorillas grow to be so big and strong on a vegetarian diet? Well, it has a lot to do with how efficiently their bodies create short-chain fatty acids from the vegetation they eat. In humans, SCFA’s have many fat loss benefits: *help regulate caloric intake *help regulate the production of hunger hormones (i.e. leptin & ghrelin) *increase fat oxidation (i.e. fat-burning) *protects against obesity In this video, we explain how you can boost the production of SCFA's in your body to get better results with your health and weight. ***************** Work with 2 Fit Docs...

How to Fix Your Gut Bacteria for Weight Loss: Prebiotics and Probiotics- Thomas DeLauer
How to Fix Your Gut Bacteria for Weight Loss with Prebiotics and Probiotics- Thomas DeLauer: Microorganisms and gut health: Gut health is important for our overall wellbeing. Known as the microbiota, consisting of 100 trillion bacteria, these microorganisms evolved a symbiotic relationship with humans. A healthy gut microbiota is critical for gut health and proper digestions and helps digest foods and provide nutrients while stimulating epithelial cell differentiation and proliferation. These cells regulate intestinal homeostasis, Induce antimicrobial peptide secretion, are intricately involved in the immune system and help to protect from pathogens in our guts. Imbalances in gut microbiota have been associated with: -Obesity and metabolic diseases -Malnourishment -Inflammatory diseases, such as asthma and Crohn’s disease -Allergies -HIV disease progression -Cancer -Depression and mood disorders -Cardiovascular health problems Dangers to the microbiota include: 1. Antibiotics 2. Triclosan in antibacterial gel and soap products 3. Diet low in fiber and high in unhealthy fats and processed foods So how do we help boost the health and diversity of our microbiotas? Probiotics and Prebiotics…. Probiotics are defined by the World Health Organization as “live microorganisms that can provide benefits to human health when administered in adequate amounts, which confer a beneficial health effect on the host.” There are numerous studies that demonstrate the benefits of supplementing with probiotics. Benefits found in studies include the prevention and treatment of: -Diarrhea -Pediatric allergic disorders -IBD, such as Crohn’s disease -Dysfunctions of the gastrointestinal tract -Prevention of respiratory tract infections, such as a cold Probiotic use has been shown to decrease intestinal permeability. Prebiotics are dietary fibers that have a positive impact on our gut microbiota and therefore our health. All prebiotics are fibers, but not all fibers are prebiotics. Prebiotics are food for probiotics, and it is through this mechanism that they play an important role in our health. Insulin and galacto-oligosaccharides are the only supplement ingredients that fulfil the definition of prebiotics. Once in the colon, prebiotics are fermented by microorganisms that live in the colon and form short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). The majority of organisms in the colon are anaerobic and get the energy they need from this fermentation of prebiotics. Our diet is of crucial importance in maintaining a healthy microbiota as different microorganisms require different food from our diets to thrive. The anti-inflammatory effects of fiber are likely due to the SCFAs that they are broken into when fermented by our microbiota. Tips: In addition to eating an organic, whole foods diet, it is a good idea to add in prebiotic and probiotic supplements. Foods high in prebiotics: 1. Asparagus 2. Garlic 3. Onions 4. Oats 5. Soy Beans 6. Leeks Foods high in probiotics (fermented foods): 1. Yogurts 2. Miso 3. Tempeh 4. Kimchi 5. Kombucha Synbiotics are synergistic combinations of probiotics and prebiotics. Switching your probiotic supplement is a good idea. Different strains provide different health benefits, even with strains of the same genus and species exhibiting different effects. Probiotics can be dangerous for those with compromised immune systems. References: 1.

Are bad gut bacteria levels making you fat?
You can eat fermented foods every day and take all the probiotic supplements you want, but if you aren’t also feeding those intestinal bacteria what they want, you could be throwing your money away. That’s because to thrive and multiply, healthy gut bacteria need to eat. And what your gut bacteria like best is fiber. Recently published research done at the University of Oveido in Spain found that obese people with low levels of a group of intestinal bacteria — Bacteroides, Prevotella, and Porphyromonas — also had a lower intake of fruit. Fruit is a good source of pectin, which is metabolized in the colon by bacteria, such as Bacteroides, producing small chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs are known to keep the immune system in check and turn down inflammation, known to be implicated in obesity, among a long list of other issues inflammation contributes to. The researchers concluded in the journal Nutrients, “These results could be useful for designing strategies targeted to obesity prevention.” Why Feed Your Microbiome Prebiotics Researchers have yet to agree on a precise definition of prebiotics, the substances that intestinal bacteria feed on, but generally the scientists agree that these are “undigested dietary carbohydrates that are fermented by colonic bacteria yielding short chain fatty acids.” Say what?! It’s basically the bacteria digests what we aren’t able to digest and the SCFA’s are their waste product. Different prebiotics may nourish different types of bacteria, and researchers have not yet pinned down the specifics of exactly what prebiotic nourishes which bacteria. But you can’t go wrong covering your bases by eating with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. The keyword being wide. Variety it the key here. A high fiber diet has often been recommended for people who need to lose weight, but now we know the point of eating more fiber is not only to make you feel full, but also because of its integral role insustaining a healthy diversity of gut bacteria. Meanwhile, the opposite — an unhealthy microbiota — is being increasingly associated with inflammation and obesity. Supporting gut bacteria with probiotics In addition to a diet of ample and diverse produce that is rich in prebiotic fiber, you can also support your microbiota with probiotics. Probiotics work best when you are already fostering your gut environment with healthy prebiotic fiber. Another common prebiotic that can be useful is FOS (Fructo-Oligosaccharide) visit www.premierif.com for more info

Bowel Wars: Hydrogen Sulfide vs. Butyrate
Sulfur dioxide preservatives in dried fruit, sulfites in wine, and the putrefaction of undigested animal protein in the colon can release hydrogen sulfide, the rotten egg gas associated with inflammatory bowel disease.

(All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.) More than 35 years ago studies started (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/412611) implicating sulfur dioxide preservatives in the exacerbation of asthma. This so-called “sulfite-sensitivity” seems to affect only about (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8586770) 1 in 2000 people, so I recommended those with asthma avoid it, but otherwise I considered the preservative harmless. I am now not so sure, and advise people to avoid it when possible. How could companies just add things to foods without adequate safety testing? See Who Determines if Food Additives are Safe?

What Is Butyric Acid 6 Butyric Acid Benefits You Need to Know About
What Is Butyric Acid 6 Butyric Acid Benefits You Need to Know About. You may not have realized it, but chances are you’ve consumed something called butyric acid before, and believe it or not, your body produces it as well. It’s true — butyric acid, also known as butanoic acid or BTA, is a saturated short-chain fatty acid found in butter, ghee, raw milk, animal fats and plant oils. It’s also formed in and therefore found in our colons through the bacterial fermentation of carbohydrates like dietary fiber. Butyric acid supports the health and healing of cells in the small and large intestine. It’s also the favored source of fuel for the cells lining the interior of the large intestine or colon. (1) The BTA content in ghee is one of the main components that provides all those wonderful ghee benefits. Consuming butyric acid in foods like ghee or in supplement form has been shown to aid digestion, calm inflammation and improve overall gastrointestinal health. People who suffer from irritable bowl syndrome and Crohn’s disease have been shown to benefit from butyric acid, and studies show promise when it comes to diabetes and insulin resistance too. BTA is also known as a potential anticancer fatty acid, especially when it comes to colon cancer. (2) I’m excited to tell you more about this extremely interesting fatty acid and how it can improve your overall health — and how it already is without you even knowing it! 6 Butyric Acid Health Benefits:. 1. Weight Loss. Butyric has gained popularity for its ability to possibly help people shed unwanted pounds. Scientific evidence has shown that people who are obese (as well as people who have type II diabetes) have a different composition of gut bacteria. Short chain fatty acids are believed to play a positive role along with probiotics in preventing metabolic syndrome, which almost always includes abdominal obesity. (3) Short chain fatty acids like butyric acid help regulate the balance between fatty acid synthesis and the breakdown of fats. In a 2007 animal study, after five weeks of treatment with BTA, obese mice lost 10.2 percent of their original body weight, and body fat was reduced by 10 percent. Butyric acid was also shown to improve insulin sensitivity, which helps guard against weight gain. (4) Most of the evidence for linking BTA supplementation specifically to weight loss is based on animal research so far, but it does show positive effects in treating obesity naturally. 2. Potential Colorectal Cancer Treatment. Multiple studies have shown butyric acid’s potential ability to fight cancer, especially cancer in the colon. It’s actually shown an ability to “modify nuclear architecture” and induce the death of colon cancer cells. This is likely a huge reason why increased fiber intake has been linked with less colon cancer since higher fiber intake can typically equate to more butyric acid present in the colon. (5) According to 2011 research published in the International Journal of Cancer, “the role of short chain fatty acids, particularly butyrate, in colon cancer therapy has been extensively studied, and its tumor suppressive functions are believed to be due to their intracellular actions.” This laboratory study further shows that butyrate treatment led to an increase in the programmed cell death of colon cancer cells. (6) According to a 2014 scientific article, it looks like “a high-fiber diet protects against colorectal tumors in a microbiota- and butyrate-dependent manner.” (7) What does that mean? It means that most likely getting plenty of fiber isn’t what fends off cancer on its own. It’s eating a diet rich in healthy fiber AND having enough good gut flora AND enough BTA present in the body that can provides cancer defense in the colon. 3. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Relief. In general, butyric acid can have a very positive impact on gut health, which greatly affects the health of your entire body. Short chain fatty acids like butyric acid can help keep the gut ling healthy and sealed, which prevents leaky gut syndrome and all kinds of issues linked to a leaky gut like IBS symptoms. This is a type of digestive disorder that’s characterized by a group of common symptoms, including changes in bowel movements and abdominal pain. A scientific article published in the Gastroenterology Review looked at butyric acid’s potential as an IBS therapy based on numerous studies conducted to date. Researchers conclude that “butyrate supplementation seems to be a promising therapy for IBS.” (8) All Photos Licensed Under CC Source : www.pexels.com www.pixabay.com www.commons.wikimedia.org

Understanding the Microbiome - 📚 Lecture by Professor Arne Astrup, MD, DMSc
Research into the microbiome has just started. We make important decisions from the gut, because we "trust" our gut feeling. Not only are the stomach and bowel considered our second brain. The experts call this the intestinal brain axis, whose communication mechanisms have already been described. New in this interaction chain is the microbiome. Because the intestinal flora has significantly more important influences on the metabolic health than previously thought. Today, this is called the "microbiome-bowel-brain axis" as a signaling pathway between the peripheral intestinal functional units and various centers of the brain, such as those responsible for the feeling of hunger and satiety. The latest news on this topic was provided by Prof. Arne Astrup as part of the lecture series "Knowledge creates health" of the Biogena Academy. As head of the Department of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Sport, Astrup at the University of Copenhagen is primarily researching the effects of different diets on the success of losing weight in obese and diabetic patients. Right at the beginning of his lecture, he stated that there is no "best diet" and criticized at the same time prevailing lump sums in the field of nutritional medicine. The reality is much more complex. Nutrition in the focus of research In the past, Prof. Astrup compared different diets and evaluated their benefits for weight loss. He focused particularly on the so-called "New Nordic Diet ", a modified form of the Mediterranean diet that replaced olive oil with canola or rapeseed oil and was generally geared towards regionally available foods from Scandinavian countries. The subjects were divided into different intervention groups and received either a hypocaloric carbohydrate-rich / low-fat or a low-carbohydrate / high-fat diet. The result: both groups lost weight, but there were no significant differences between the two diets. However, if the subjects were classified according to the level of their fasting blood sugar level for the evaluation , it quickly became apparent that the level of carbohydrate intake definitely had a relevant influence on the weight loss. People with prediabetes and diabetes were able to achieve strong customer success with a low carbohydrate diet, while overweight people with normal blood sugar levels actually gained weight - despite the hypocaloric diet. How can this fact be explained? Microorganisms as the key to weight loss At this point, the microbiome comes into play. Dividing the bacterial ecosystem of human intestinal flora into so-called enterotypes focuses on bacteria of the strains Bacteroides , Prevotella and Ruminococcus , with Bacteroides and Prevotella appearing to be of particular relevance to metabolic health. A dominance of Bacteroides can be recorded mainly as a result of a typical Western diet, Prevotella is found primarily in people who favor a fiber-rich diet. Recently, Prof. Astrup published in the International Journal of Obesity's research on these two enterotypes and their role in weight loss. He showed that the ratio of Prevotella to Bacteroides is the linchpin of successful intervention in overweight people. The higher the ratio of Prevotella to Bacteroides , the more a high-fiber diet of New Nordic Diet affects the loss of fat mass. If, on the other hand, bacteria of the Bacteroides strain predominate, targeted interventions - despite a calorie deficit - can be unsuccessful, as Prof. Astrup was able to show in his study. A Chinese research team investigated the underlying mechanism and showed that ingested fiber from Prevotella and Bacteroides are fermented and metabolized differently. Prevotella produces a 3 times higher amount of propionate compared to Bacteroides and also showed an overall higher production of short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate and butyrate. This suggests a more effective use of fiber by Prevotella , which goes back to d'accord's earlier research. ▶ ︎ Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/2v8S9Zx
Exercise and gut bacteria
We’re learning what a vital role good gut bacteria play in immune health, brain health, mood, and, of course, gut health. One of the best health quotes of all time is… “Health comes from above, down, inside, out” We also know that the best way to beef up your good gut bacteria is through eating lots of different kinds of vegetables and fruits every day. But researchers have discovered yet another way to promote healthy gut bacteria: Regular exercise. Our digestive tract is home to trillions of gut bacteria that weigh about three to four pounds all together, and are made up of over a 1,000 different species and 5,000 strains. This is the very definition of a symbiotic relationship. Our body depends on these gut bacteria to: • Metabolize nutrients • Protect the intestinal wall • Produce vitamin K and short chain fatty acids (SCFA), which are important for immune health • Maintain health of the digestive tract • Regulate immunity • Prevent inflammation • Promote good brain health and function - infant many studies are even finding that Parkinsons may actually start in the gut and work its way up the vagus nerve into the brain. But that is another post for another blog. Very interesting stuff though. As our understanding of healthy gut bacteria evolves, so does the information on how to cultivate your own “microbiome” while inhibiting overgrowth of “bad” bacteria that are infectious and inflammatory. This imbalance of good and bad bacteria is often what is referred as dysbiosis - Too many bad bacteria and not enough good bacteria. Initially, fermented foods and probiotics were thought to be the main recourse for improving gut health, and they do go a long ways. But, they are not the only way. Then we learned eating a diet comprised primarily of vegetables and fruits and continually changing up the produce you eat is a great way to develop a rich and diverse gut bacteria population. Now, scientists have used both a mouse study and a human study to show regular exercise, independent of diet or other factors, also promotes healthy gut bacteria. Meaning that if you do nothing other than exercise you can beneficially change your gut bacteria. In the first study, researchers transplanted fecal material from both exercised and sedentary mice into mice with sterile guts. The activity level of the mice receiving the transplants clearly mirrored that of their donors, showing that the kind of gut bacteria we have plays a role in how inclined we are to be sedentary or active. The exercised mice recipients also showed more bacteria that produce butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid (SCFA) that promotes healthy intestinal cells, reduces inflammation, and increases energy. They also were more resistant to ulcerative colitis. N-butyrate is THE most important short chain fatty acid. In the second study, researchers tracked the composition of gut bacteria in 18 lean and 14 obese adults as they transitioned from a sedentary lifestyle, to an active one, and then back to a sedentary one. Their exercise routine consisted of 30 to 60 minutes of cardiovascular exercise three times a week for six weeks. Their diets remained the same.

All About Probiotics and Prebiotics, with James Sloane and Markus Rothkranz
James Sloane and Markus Rothkranz talk about the importance of Prebiotics, probiotics and their main food source, which is fiber. Our Raw Vegan Health Cookbook: http://www.markusworld.com/healthycookbook/probsloane Facebook: http://www.markusworld.com/facebook/probsloane Instagram: http://www.markusworld.com/instagram/probsloane Markus Rothkranz website: http://www.markusworld.com/Markus/probsloane Online Health Store: http://www.markusworld.com/products/probsloane German website: http://www.markusworld.com/german/probsloane Learn about the candida gut yeast connection, different strains of probiotics, what probiotic gut flora do and why they are so important and vital for our health. Also talked about is how gut flora can lead to obesity or weight loss depending on the type. Is Lactobacillus or bifidus or acidophilus really the type you need? James has lots of information at www.medcapsules.com and Markus at MarkusNews.com . Markus has a fiber available at MarkusFiber.com Learn about kefir, cultured fermented foods and why you must eat a high fiber diet and what happens if you don't. You will die without gut bacteria. https://ibstreatmentcenter.com/ibs/intestinal-bacteria-yeast-candida-and-parasites Our internal bacteria are actually critical to our health- so critical, in fact, that we cannot survive without them. They are fundamental to the development of our immune system, they help break down our food, and they even create nutrients that we need for good health. And most importantly for you, they play a large role in whether or not we experience diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, abdominal pain or IBS. You have ten times more bacteria in your body than cells and they are really important. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4425030/ Abstract: Gut bacteria are an important component of the microbiota ecosystem in the human gut, which is colonized by 1014 microbes, ten times more than the human cells. Gut bacteria play an important role in human health, such as supplying essential nutrients, synthesizing vitamin K, aiding in the digestion of cellulose, and promoting angiogenesis and enteric nerve function. However, they can also be potentially harmful due to the change of their composition when the gut ecosystem undergoes abnormal changes in the light of the use of antibiotics, illness, stress, aging, bad dietary habits, and lifestyle. Dysbiosis of the gut bacteria communities can cause many chronic diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, cancer, and autism. Too much Bad bacteria can make you sick, and gain weight. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/news/20140820/your-gut-bacteria#2 Many diseases -- of the skin, lungs, joints, and other tissue -- are caused by inflammation,” Petrosino says. “A bacterial imbalance can lead to elevated inflammation that can advance disease.” A recent study shows that people with untreated rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory autoimmune disease, have more of particular inflammatory bacteria in their intestines and less of known beneficial bacteria than their healthy counterparts. If you don’t have ample fiber in your diet you will get hungrier .. https://authoritynutrition.com/18-ways-reduce-hunger-appetite/ A high fiber intake stretches the stomach, slows its emptying rate and influences the release of fullness hormones. In addition, fiber can ferment in the bowel. This produces short-chain fatty acids thought to further help promote feelings of fullness. The best source of Probiotics is cultured foods versus pill supplements: http://cid.oxfordjournals.org/content/46/Supplement_2/S76.full Abstract: Europe is a multicultural continent where the consumption of fermented milks has traditionally been high in several countries. Thus, it is no wonder that the market for fermented dairy products with probiotic bacteria has been successful. The market for food applications of probiotics is clearly larger than that for probiotics sold in capsules, sachets, and other pharmaceutical forms. Yogurt-type drinks are the fastest-growing product category, but the diversity of probiotic food applications is not limited to milk-based products. Probiotic fruit juices, berry soups, and soy- and cereal-based fermented products are also sold….. Probiotics feed off prebiotics….they are considered soft fibers and are not as harsh to the body https://www.ijsr.net/archive/v4i9/SUB158128.pdf Probiotics feed off prebiotics. The maintenance of balance seems to keep the digestive system on track and heal. http://naturalhealthtechniques.com/antacids-antacid-side-effects/ http://bodyecology.com/articles/probiotic_foods_vs_supplements.php http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-790-lactobacillus.aspx?activeingredientid=790&activeingredientname=lactobacillus

How The Gut Microbiota Affects Our Health with Dr. Erica & Dr. Justin Sonnenburg
Dr. Justin Sonnenburg is an associate professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford and Dr. Erica Sonnenburg is a senior research scientist in the Sonnenburg lab where they the research many aspects the interaction between diet with the 100 trillion or so bacteria in the gut (specifically the colon) and how this impacts the health of the host (which in this case is a laboratory research mouse). In this episode we discuss the pivotal role fiber plays in fueling good bacteria in the gut to produce compounds that regulate the immune system including increasing the number of T regulatory cells, which are specialized types of immune cells that keep the immune system in check and prevent autoimmune responses, and how these compounds also increase other types of blood cells in the body in a process known as hematopoiesis. We also talk about how the lack of fiber in the typical American diet actually starves these good bacteria of their food. This has an effect not only on the immune system and autoimmune diseases but also results in the breakdown of the gut barrier, which leads to widespread inflammation and inflammatory diseases. Lastly, in this podcast, Dr. Erica Sonnenburg talks about how C-sections, have a negative effect on the infant’s gut due to the lack of exposure to bacteria present in the mother’s vaginal canal, and how the use of formula deprives the infant not only from the good bacteria present in Mom’s gut but also from special carbohydrates in breast milk that are good for the infant gut flora known as HMOs or human milk oligosaccharides. ▶︎ Get the show notes! https://www.foundmyfitness.com/episodes/the-sonnenburgs Links related to the Sonnenburgs: ▶︎ http://sonnenburglab.stanford.edu/ ▶︎ http://www.facebook.com/thegoodgut ▶︎http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594206287/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1594206287&linkCode=as2&tag=foun06-20&linkId=IOKAGDTRCL47XQN6 Links related to FoundMyFitness: ▶︎ Join my weekly newsletter: http://www.foundmyfitness.com/?sendme=nutrigenomics ▶︎ Crowdfund more videos: http://www.patreon.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=foundmyfitness ▶︎ Subscribe to the podcast: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/foundmyfitness/id818198322 ▶︎ Twitter: http://twitter.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/foundmyfitness

Do Calories Matter? 4 Factors that matter more than Calories!
Is counting calories really the best way to achieve weight loss? Science teaches us that there are at least 4 other factors that matter more than calories: 1. The macronutrient composition of our food (starts at 0:53) 2. Our Genetics (minute 2:58) 3. Our Microbiome (minute 4:14) 4.

Diet, Gut Microbiota and Western Lifestyle Diseases
Charles R. Mackay, Monash University Speech at the Herrenhausen Conference "Beyond the Intestinal Microbiome – From Signatures to Therapy", 09.10.2014 Human disease is affected by diet, as well as by the composition of the gut microbiota, through poorly understood mechanisms. One of the major activities of commensal microbes is digestion of dietary fibre to yield short chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Deficiency of dietary fibre, in particular, has been associated with increased mortality due to various diseases. Decreasing amounts of fibre intake in western countries is one hypothesis for the increased incidences of certain inflammatory diseases. The burning questions in the field of dietary metabolites to be addressed in future studies are: What is the relative importance of metabolite-sensing GPCRs versus HDACs for gut health and human disease? How important are metabolites such as SCFAs for a ‘developmental origin’ of disease, i.e. diseases that are put in train in utero or during breast feeding, and which may have an epigenetic basis? What are all the metabolites of beneficial bacteria, and are non-bacterially produced metabolites important as well?

Sodium Butyrate - Health Benefits, Side Effects, Food Sources, Uses
Find out top facts, uses, side effects, health benefits, and high foods in sodium butyrate, a sodium salt of butyrate with potential antineoplastic activity. The compound is found in the human diet, manufactured in large amounts from both soluble and insoluble fiber in the colon. Health benefits of sodium butyrate Studies have shown that eating more dietary fiber increases butyrate production. It improves the formation of good bacteria in the colon. Moreover, it induces growth arrest, differentiation, and apoptosis in cancer cells, mainly through its effects on HDAC activity. Numerous studies have shown its potential high capacity to fight cancer, particularly cancer in the gut. Moreover, some animal-based research concluded that taking this compound as a supplement may restore memory loss and cognitive impairment in patients with neurodegenerative conditions, such as - with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of senility. Short chain fatty acids are considered to play a positive role along with probiotics in preventing metabolic syndrome, that almost always includes abdominal obesity.  Besides the direct antibacterial effect, one very unique characteristic or trait of this compound is its ability to negatively affect the strength of pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella. Food source of sodium butyrate To get butyrate from foods, you can consume good sources of dietary fiber, such as - barley, oatmeal, apples, carrots, nuts, pears, seeds, legumes (lentils, chickpeas, red kidney beans, baked beans, soybeans) and many other types of fruits and vegetables. Side effects of sodium butyrate Presently, no side effects are known.  Source – http://www.yourhealthremedy.com/nutrients/sodium-butyrate-side-effects-health-benefits-food-sources/ Images and videos credit – pixabay Music: http://www.bensound.com

What is INFECTOBESITY? What dos INFECTOBESITY mean? INFECTOBESITY meaning & explanation
What is INFECTOBESITY? What dos INFECTOBESITY mean? INFECTOBESITY meaning - INFECTOBESITY pronunciation - INFECTOBESITY explanation - How to pronounce INFECTOBESITY? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The term "infectobesity" refers to obesity of infectious origin and the emerging field of medical research that studies the relationship between pathogens (disease-causing organisms, such as viruses and bacteria) and weight gain. The term was coined in 2001 by Dr. Nikhil V. Dhurandhar, at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center. (Dhurandhar, 2001). The study of the effect of infectious agents on metabolism is still in its early stages. Gut flora has been shown to differ between lean and obese humans. There is an indication that gut flora in obese and lean individuals can affect the metabolic potential. This apparent alteration of the metabolic potential is believed to confer a greater capacity to harvest energy contributing to obesity. Whether these differences are the direct cause or the result of obesity has yet to be determined unequivocally. A possible mechanistic explanation linking gut flora to obesity involves short chain fatty acids. Humans are unable to digest complex polysaccharides and rely on gut microbiota to ferment these polysaccharides into short chain fatty acids. In contrast to polysaccharides, humans can use short chain fatty acids as a source of energy. In addition, research in rodents has indicated that the abundance of short chain fatty acids in the gut can affect the blood levels of gut hormones such as GLP-1, GLP-2 and peptide YY. These changes in gut hormone levels have shown to affect glucose tolerance, insulin signaling, intestinal barrier function and have led to weight gain in rodents. Furthermore, administration of antibiotics to rodents alters gut microbiota composition and ensuing changes in gut hormone levels are also detected. These results may provide the mechanistic explanation for the claim that antibiotics can lead to obesity in humans. Yet, whether these findings can be replicated in human studies remains to be seen. An association between viruses and obesity has been found in humans, as well as a number of different animal species. The amount that these associations may have contributed to the rising rate of obesity is yet to be determined. A fat virus is the popular name for the notion that some forms of obesity in humans and animals have a viral source. The AD-36 adenovirus has been observed to increase the amount of body fat in laboratory animals, an effect that has been duplicated in chickens and monkeys. Ad-36 is known to cause obesity in chickens, mice, rats, and monkeys. In addition, it was present in 30% of obese humans and 11% of non-obese humans. The prevalence of Ad-36 positivity in lean individuals increased from ~7% in 1992–1998 to 15–20% in 2002–2009, which paralleled the increase in obesity prevalence.

Dominic D'Agostino, Ph.D. on Modified Atkins Diet, Keto-Adaptation, Ketosis & More
This video features a conversation with Dr. Dom D'Agostino, an associate professor at the University of South Florida in Tampa and all around expert on ketosis. In this conversation, we discuss SO MUCH, including... • Dom's efforts at teasing out the differences between induced nutritional ketosis (through a low carbohydrate, high fat diet) and ketosis from the dietary introduction of exogenous ketones, like beta-hydroxybutyrate, especially in the context of therapeutic and performance enhancing effects. • His work on formulating ketone esters. • The differences in tolerability between MCT (medium chain triglycerides) powders versus liquids, as well as the amount of supplemental MCT a person would need to consume in order to achieve mild ketosis without carbohydrate restriction. • The differences between different types of ketogenic diets. • The modified atkins diet which has been demonstrated to have similar efficacy to the classical ketogenic diet in the treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy and how it may be a slightly more practical option for achieving therapeutic nutritional ketosis. • The importance of making the correct carbohydrate choices, even and maybe especially in the context of a ketogenic diet, with a diverse variety of raw vegetables being the most favorable. • What keto adaptation is and what it means, at a physiological level, to be keto adapted and how this is distinguished from short periods of ketosis we experience in our day-to-day lives. • Some of Dom's ideas around cycling various dietary strategies as a way of promoting metabolic flexibility. • How ketones, when used as a source of energy, may result in a net reduction in the number of damaging reactive byproducts known as reactive oxygen species than what may be produced by other forms of energy metabolism while also producing more ATP from, proportionately, the same amount of oxygen. ...

Harmful bacteria in your gut can cause insulin resistance and inflammation
You can also become bulletproof by encouraging the growth of certain bacteria in your digestive tract. The microbes in your intestine – your gut biome – play an important role in your health and your diet has a big impact on them. Studies of mice have provided a great deal of insight into the ways our bodies gain and lose weight. Your weight isn’t just determined by the calories you consume or burn – it’s also affected by the bacteria in your gut. If bacteria from the guts of obese mice is inserted into thin mice, they overeat by ten percent and become more resistant to insulin. And like mice, heavy and thin humans also have very different gut bacteria. People who are naturally thin have more bacteria from the bacteroidetes phylum, also called thin people bacteria. You can generate more of it by eating foods that contain polyphenols. They’re found in brightly colored vegetables like peppers and carrots. Coffee is the richest source of polyphenols, however. Chocolate contains polyphenols too. You should also eat more resistant starches, like white rice and starchy vegetables such as sweet potatoes, carrots and pumpkins. These starches can radically change your gut biome. These starches are “resistant” because they’re more resistant to digestion. Your body can’t break them down, so you can consume them without causing your insulin levels to rise, which would result in blood sugar problems. Because they can’t be broken down, resistant starches are still intact when they arrive in your colon. Several studies have found that helpful bacteria in the colon thrive on resistant starches and produce a short-chain fatty acid called butyrate when they’re digested. Butyrate is vital to a healthy gut and brain, which is another reason that butter is so good for you. Resistant starches are also found in less common foods, like green banana flour, plantain flour and potato starch.

Antimicrobials antifungals – to give new beneficial bacteria opportunity to repopulate. However, this isn’t necessary because of competitive exclusion where the beneficial bacteria crowds out the harmful bacteria. Double edge sword – people who give month deworming other chemical toxins 2. Intestinal Permeability. Tight junction in the epithelial layer is open and mucin layer is depressed a combination allowing for foreign, pathogenic and beneficial bacteria to leave the intestine and enter the circulatory system. Our program assumes intestinal permeability and we take actionable steps to close tight junction and increase mucin through strategic actionable steps. Will have a dedicated video on these steps because of ‘if this then that’ - we know SCFA like butyrate and diverse microbiome contribute to healing and prevention of leaky gut. Increase SCFA with resistant starch – HOWEVER research shows that if the gut doesn’t have the right microbes (diversity lacking) then the bacteria turns RS into ammonia – not good.

DocTesta Do It Yourself Alternative Health Exercise and the gut microbiome I know, I drone on and on about this topic but it s so important to our health, genes, and life. A recent study (Nov 2017) in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise showed exercise improved gut microbiome function in both lean and obese people. Lean people had a better output of function. Measured as short chain fatty acids. The changes were seen only if exercises was sustained. We have 10x more microbes in and on our body than we do cells that make us up. This organ , weighing about 5 lbs in all, turns genes on and off, affects weight, immune system, mood, detoxification, digestion, and more. All roads to health lead back to low tech, simple solutions. Diet rich in plants and high in fiber can improve the entire system in about 2 days. Add in the exercise and you can make huge changes in your health. Start with walking. #BeYourOwnDoctor
Heart attack survivors who eat lots of fibre live longer
Read the open access research: http://www.bmj.com/content/348/bmj.g2659 Diet plays an important role in the etiology of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease, yet secondary prevention guidelines generally emphasize pharmaceutical management owing to the lack of evidence to guide diet and lifestyle recommendations. The need for better lifestyle guidelines for survivors of myocardial infarction (MI) is profound especially because a substantial drop in the case fatality rate has increased the number of survivors in the United States. Compared with the general population, this growing patient population is at higher risk for mortality and may be more motivated to change their lifestyle habits. Evidence as to whether and to what extent dietary changes from before to after MI improve prognosis is, however, insufficient. Greater intake of dietary fiber improves glycemic response and insulin sensitivity, increases the production of short chain fatty acids, and increases satiety to help control overall energy intake. Dietary fiber is inversely associated with risk of dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, coronary heart disease, and stroke. Here the researchers set out to evaluate the associations of dietary fiber after myocardial infarction (MI) and changes in dietary fiber intake from before to after MI with all cause and cardiovascular mortality.

Most effective Weight Gain solution
In regard to adipose tissue increases, a person generally gains weight by increasing food consumption, becoming physically inactive, or both. When energy intake exceeds energy expenditure (when the body is in positive energy balance), the body can store there excess energy as fat. excess energy as fat. However, the physiology of weight gain and loss is complex involving numerous hormones, body systems and environmental factors. Other factors beside energy balance that may contribute to gaining weight include: Social Factors A study, involving more than 12,000 people tracked over 32 years, found that social networks play a surprisingly powerful role in determining an individual's chances of gaining weight, transmitting an increased risk of becoming obese from wives to husbands, from brothers to brothers and from friends to friends.[5] .[6] The human microbiota facilitates fermentation of indigestible carbohydrates to short-chain fatty acids, SCFAs, contributing to weight gain.[7] A change in the proportion of Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes may determine host’s risk of obesity.[7] Sleep and Stress Lack of sufficient sleep has been suggested as a cause for weight gain or the difficulty in maintaining a healthy weight. Two hormones responsible for regulating hunger and metabolism are leptin, which inhibits appetite and increases energy expenditure, and ghrelin, which increases appetite and reduces energy expenditure. Studies have shown that chronic sleep deprivation is associated with reduced levels of leptin and elevated levels of ghrelin, which together result in increased appetite, especially for high fat and high carbohydrate foods.[8] As a result, sleep deprivation over time may contribute to increased caloric intake and decreased self-control over food cravings, leading to weight gain Contact Us ;03335501390

WILL BABY POOP BACTERIA BECOMES THE NEW PROBIOTIC? Could the key to better gut health reside in a probiotic cocktail brewed from the contents of an infant's dirty diaper? That's the question driving a new line of research investigating the power of baby poop as a potential source of microbes that could contribute to healthier digestion. And experiments recently showed that certain types of bacteria extracted from baby feces could promote the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) in mice, and in a medium simulating the human gut. SCFA molecules are a subset of fatty acids that are churned out by some types of gut microbes during the fermentation of fiber. They're associated with maintaining gut health and protecting against disease, so a probiotic containing baby-poop microbes could provide health benefits by boosting SCFA production in a compromised digestive system, researchers reported in the new study. [5 Ways Gut Bacteria Affect Your Health] "Short-chain fatty acids are a key component of good gut health," lead study author Hariom Yadav, an assistant professor of molecular medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine, said in a statement. "People with diabetes, obesity, autoimmune disorders and cancers frequently have fewer short-chain fatty acids. Increasing them may be helpful in maintaining or even restoring a normal gut environment, and hopefully, improving health," Yadav said. Fecal microbiota transplants (FMT), or "poop transplants," can treat a type of gut disorder with an infusion of diverse bacteria from a healthy digestive system, distilled from a donor's poop. This helps to correct imbalances of microbial diversity when the gut microbiome is dominated by the bacteria Clostridium difficile (C. diff), which can lead to serious gut disorders. Previous studies have investigated the use of probiotics — those healthy gut bacteria — by testing their impact in guts already affected by disease, the researchers wrote in the study. For the new investigation, they wanted to see how a probiotic would impact SCFA production in a healthy gut. They chose to work with baby poop because infants' gut microbiomes are typically free from age-related diseases "such as diabetes and cancer," and because of the sheer abundance of infant feces at their disposal. ("Their poop is readily available," Yadav said.) In the small, new study, the researchers isolated 10 bacterial strains — five species of Lactobacillus bacteria, and five species of Enterococcus — in samples from 34 babies, identifying the strains as good candidates for crafting a probiotic cocktail of microbes that could survive in a human host's gut and stimulate SCFA production, according to the study. They then tested different doses of the 10-bacterial probiotic blend in mice, as well as in a slurry of human feces meant to mimic the environment of a human digestive system. The scientists found that even single doses maintained the healthy microbial balance and increased SCFA production in both the mice and the feces medium, the researchers reported. "This work provides evidence that these human-origin probiotics could be exploited as [treatments] for human diseases associated with gut microbiome imbalance and decreased SCFA production in the gut," Yadav said. Still, much more research is needed before you'll find baby-poop probiotics on the shelves of your health-food stores. "Our data should be useful for future studies aimed at investigating the influence of probiotics on human microbiome, metabolism and associated diseases," Yadav said. The findings were published online Aug. 23 in the journal Scientific Reports.
