Did you know that 70%-80% of the immune system resides in the gut? No wonder it’s so important to take care of your digestive tract.
As we strive to take better care of our bodies, education is key. Part of that is knowing how our body parts and organ systems are interconnected.
In the past, we’ve studied the gut-brain axis.
Today, we’re looking at the connection between the immune system and the human gut.
Immunoregulation and Your Digestive Tract
Most people don’t realize just how interconnected their digestive tract and immune system really are. In fact, the health of your digestive tract can have a direct impact on the performance of your immune defenses. Recent research has shown that an unbalanced microbiota in the gut can cause a host of health issues.
Which health issues have been linked to disturbances in the gut microbiome? Eczema, asthma, food sensitivities and various inflammatory ailments are just a few on the list.
Your immune system may be overreacting to stimulants like allergens. It may be sluggish in response to other ailments. Whatever your issue is, the bacteria in your gut can play a significant role in your immune response to that issue.
Probiotics (the good bacteria) can have beneficial effects on the intestinal mucosal defenses system, leading to some immune defenses against infection and inflammation.
Individuals who consumed probiotic foods in one study, for instance, showed some increased defense against the common cold. Other studies have shown probiotics to provide some defense against urinary tract infections.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Response to Gut Bacteria?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (sometimes known as Irritable Bowel Disease) is thought to be a direct response to the bacteria in the gut.
IBS is an extremely prevalent disorder, affecting approximately 10%-20% of the population. A large portion of research has shown that the gut microbiome is disrupted in individuals with the disease. Microbial populations in IBS patients is diminished.
Some studies have shown that probiotic foods, especially those containing Bifidobacterium infantis, can help alleviate some of the symptoms of IBS.
