Human gut microbiome coexists in a fine balance or symbiosis with human host that can easily be disturbed (dysbiosis). The gut microbiome slowly evolves from birth to a mature “core microbiome”.
Each individual carry a highly evolved “core microbiome” which complements and synergistically support key physiological processes for human host.
This core microbiome have a tendency to remain relatively stable throughout life, leading to the speculation that individuals might possess a unique microbial “fingerprint”, despite daily variations attributable to diet, lifestyle, age, and the host’s physiological and immunological health.
A healthy gut and balanced microbiome can curb inflammation and cortisol levels, lower your reaction to stress, improve memory, and even reduce neuroticism and social anxiety. The metabolites produced by gut microbiome has far reaching impact on human health.
The intestinal mucosal immune system constitutes the largest immune component in vertebrates, functioning closely with the intestinal microbiome; and their proper balance plays a key role in host homeostasis and defense.
Microbiomehomeostasis is critical for quality of life and longevity; any compromise on long-term microbiome dysbiosis can affect yourhealthy life span!
