They’re a “big part” of our immune systems. They “improve digestion” and “eat the fibers and resistant starches” that our host enzymes cannot digest. Yeah, gut bacteria are hot right now. Everyone’s talking about them. And, since our host cells are famously outnumbered by our gut bacteria, 10 to 1, we need to be apprised of all that they do.

    We don’t know everything yet – and we probably never will – but here are some of the most interesting and unexpected functions of our gut bacteria:

    Fascinating discussion about how gut bacteria is connected to anxiety and depression. Further proof of the interconnections of all our body parts.

    Thanks Reesacat, that was a great article. I doubt if many conventional doctors are up to speed with the importance of good gut bacteria.

    I just ordered the Theralac probiotic that Tara48 talked about. Her story is amazing, and it seems that Theralac played a part. I wonder how she's doing? It seems we haven't heard from her in a while. Tara48, where are you?
