. . There is a really interesting relationship between your gut bacteria and your immune system. Check this out.
0:10 About the microbiome
1:08 What happens when you have an imbalance in gut flora
4:11 The microbiome and immunity
Today we’re going to talk about the relationship between your friendly gut bacteria and your immune system.
There are trillions of microbes that live in and around your body. This is called the microbiome. You give these microbes a place to live, and in exchange, they give you immune protection, nutrients, and other beneficial things.
• 70% of the immune system is the microbiome
• There are over 10,000 different species of friendly bacteria in and around the body
• 99% of your microbiome is non-pathogenic
• The majority of microbes are living in the gut
When you have an imbalance in gut bacteria or the microbiome, you start to:
• Lose your gut lymphatic layer
• Have a decrease in lymph nodes
• Have fewer antibodies
• Have a decrease in T-cell production
• Have less small-chain fatty acids
• Have less ability to make B12, B1, vitamin K, biotin, and lactic acid
The friendly bacteria hoard the amount of food and space available to limit the number of pathogenic microbes. The less microbiome you have, the weaker the intestinal barrier is, which can lead to leaky gut. It’s also my opinion the autoimmune diseases start in the gut.
COVID-19 attacks the cells through the ACE2 receptor. Your gut has way more ACE2 receptors than the lung tissue. So, this could be another mode of entry into the cell that goes beyond a lung infection.
