Your microbiome is the biosphere of tiny organisms that live in your gut and skin. They out-number your human cells 10 to 1. What are they doing in there? Well, they are your first line of your immune defense, help you digest food, produce chemicals that trigger hormones, and create vitamins. Most of the serotonin and melatonin in your body are generated in your gut by some of these gut microbiobes. One of the largest, most coordinated studies that started as result of the human genome project cataloged the genetic makeup of these bacteria. The study, which concluded in 1999, involved over 80 hospitals, universities and research institutes from across the globe. New fields of study have sprung up as a result of this research such as Nutrigenomics and Epigenetics.
Possibly the most notable concept coming from these studies is that gut health can govern your overall health–for better or worse.
Some of the presenters have been lecturers in my schooling and are highly respected in this new field of study.
