What’s happening Stackers?
This week’s findings are all about the friendly flora you find inside.
We rave about these healthy little buggies in The Stack 005 and their impact on almost all aspects of our health.
In today’s edition, we advance the abdominal bacteria association, exploring how these honorable organisms predict, reverse, and even fight disease!
Gut microbiome may be a fibromyalgia marker
- 156 individuals were examined (77 of whom had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia with the remaining, a control group).
- A wide range of techniques confirmed the changes in the microbiomes were not caused by diet, medication, physical activity, or age which are known to affect microbiome.
- Researchers discovered that the severity of fibromyalgia symptoms were directly correlated with the increased presence of certain gut bacteria and an absence of others.
Gut bacteria therapy prevents and reverses food allergies
A new Nature Medicine study featured by Science Daily identified a species of bacteria in the gut that protect against food allergies, finding changes associated with the development of food allergies and helping to “reset” the immune response.
- Researchers collected fecal samples every four to six months from 56 infants who had egg allergies, compared to 98 infants who did not develop food allergies.
- The varied samples were transplanted into mice. Mice who received microbiota from healthy controls were more protected against egg allergy than those who received microbiota from the infants with food allergies.
- Researchers analyzed the microbes and found that two types of bacteria were protective and could suppress food allergies: Clostridiales and Bacteroidetes.
Bacteria based food supplement fights metabolic syndrome
The study showed that the composition of our gut bacteria plays an important role in obesity-related conditions such as metabolic syndrome (central obesity, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, and high blood cholesterol).
- Researchers found that giving A. muciniphila as a nutritional supplement to people with metabolic syndrome improves their cardiometabolic health in the same way it does in mice in previous studies.
- 40 overweight or obese participants were assigned one of three groups: one that received a placebo, one that received live Akkermansia and a group took the pasteurized bacteria as a nutritional supplement.
- People who took the live or pasteurized bacteria for three months, showed reduced markers of inflammation in the liver, slight reductions in body weight, fat mass, and hip circumference and lower cholesterol levels.
Natural Stacks habitué
Kip Kenobi is a breakthrough & empowerment coach. Even from his title, you can tell that he prioritizes his health and wellbeing and strives to motivate others.
Kip loves eating meat, especially wings and brisket, but in the past few years he noticed more food sensitivities and reactions to seasoned foods and bloating from veggies such as broccoli.
“Within the first few weeks of taking the supplements (PreBiotic+™), my symptoms dropped to an almost zero reaction.”
Even within the first week of starting, he noticed a drastic drop in food sensitivities!
“I feel much better after meals. Not sluggish or bloated. I feel much lighter.”
Happy gut, happy life.
PreBiotic+™ Resistant Starch Complex
PreBiotic+™ can improve the gut and overall health with a blend of natural prebiotics that encourage the growth of good bacteria.
Prebiotics are food and nourishment for healthy flora. Resistant starches “resist” digestion and pass through the digestive system largely intact until they reach the intestine.
The resistant starch complex is a blend of natural prebiotics that encourage the growth of beneficial gut bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.
PreBiotic+™ can help boost metabolism, improve digestion, and promote a deeper sleep.
