Basic concept of Gut Microbiota

  • In this episode, we'll be talking on the topic ‘Basics of Gut Microbiota’ with Dr. Dhanshaker, a pediatrician and gastroenterologist in practice.
  • Gut microbiota is very vital to the immune system. It aids in the digestion and the breakdown of complex carbohydrates, fibers, dietary components or digestive enzymes that find it difficult to digest. We understand the gut micro-biodata contribute to metabolism and body weight management. 
  • Therefore, taking precautions to protect the gut flora is crucial. The microbes benefit by eating a well-balanced diet rich in fiber, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, fermented foods, lots of water, exercise, and adequate sleep. The potential for harm or adverse health consequences resulting from dysbiosis or changes in the gut microbiota is recognized.
  • Gut microbiota liabilities are potential risks or adverse health consequences that might arise from disruptions or imbalances in the gut microbial system. Incorrect or overuse of antibiotics, as well as immune-related diseases including allergies, asthma, and autoimmune disorders, have all been connected to imbalances or disruptions in the gut microbial diversity.
