For so long, the gut was just the place where your body digested food. These days, gut health is a hot topic in medical, health, weight loss, and mental health circles to name a few. And that’s because of the importance of your gut microbiome.
So, if you’re looking to improve your health, then first you need to understand, what is your gut microbiome?
A Guide to Your Gut Microbiome
First of all, the gut. This term is generally used to describe the tube that starts at your mouth and ends at your anus. Along the way, it includes your stomach, the small and large intestine, and other organs.
Then you have the microbiome. This describes the trillions of tiny microorganisms or microbiota that live in a specific environment in your body. So, the gut microbiome is made up of the viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites that live in your gut. These microorganisms tend to cluster in your large and small intestines but are found throughout the gut as well.
This might sound scary and dangerous, but it’s actually completely normal. When you’re healthy, these microorganisms live in balance and actually help with a number of body functions.
However, when you’re unhealthy or the balance between the microorganisms in your gut is lost, it can affect nearly every other part of and function in your body.
The Origins of your Microbiome
The composition of your gut bacteria is unique to you. There is no one else in the world who has the same balance and network of microbiota. The microbiota in your gut is first determined by your DNA, and then changes throughout your life. These changes occur as you’re exposed to new microbiota through:
- The birth canal
- Your mother’s breast milk
- Your environment
- Dietary choices
All of these factors are pivotal in determining whether your microbiome supports or harms your health.
So, how healthy is your gut microbiome? And what could you do to make it even better?
