Fecal transplant helps insulin sensitivity
Fecal transplant actually improved the insulin sensitivity in the obese men with metabolic syndrome. The notion and result is not shocking of course, and that is why they initiated the study to prove it.
Gut bacteria certainly affects people
The bacterias in the gut co-exist with human beings since the very beginning of human history. The numbers of them are several times more than the number of cells in human body that is in fact mostly red blood cells. It is estimated that there are about 100 trillion of bacterias in our gut. Who are there and how they are living definitely have effects on how we are living.
The flora gets in there in the first place after birth and then infants and toddler is largely from the family including caregivers. To elucidate every individual’s flora is no easier task: they are of all the genetic origins, weird shapes and sizes. The reason that we need to know them is that human being are influenced by them in a profound way.
We know that our genes are from our parents and each individual has special coding. But the whole structure of gene is conservative, which is the similarities. Human beings are different, and everyone is special but we are also very similar. Genes are in charge of coding only; the functions are performed by proteins that is expressed from genes.
How the gene expressed their function is the tricky part, and that can be affected by the gut bacteria. Probiotics helps with many symptoms, say, mood, digestion and cardiovascular. Gut bacteria that affects the protein expression in sperms and oocytes can have effects on the offsprings. If you can imagine that our current mental status was determined by some bacterias in our grandparent’s gut, do not get shocked. That is how human beings live in the nature, and that is how we are created.
