Dysbiosis; microbial imbalances can play a role in the systemic immune inflammatory response. It can have a profound effect on oestrogen levels, and play a role in carcinogen and immune related diseases.
Microflora helps promote a healthy GI tract barrier, develops and supports GALT (Gut Associated Lymphoid Tissue). Microflora produce cytochrome P450 like enzymes which help with detoxification. Produce some B vitamins and vitamin K. Aids digestion, enhances absorption, combats diarrhoea, interacts with immune system to improve resistance, exerts antimutagenic and anti tumour and imminomodulation effects.
Causes of Dysbiosis are; stress, decreased immune status, decrease gut motility, maldigestion, internal infection, xenobiotics, increased intestinal PH, diabetes, scleroderma, gastrointestinal tract surgery, and nutritional and microbial deficiency.
Support involves the use of; probiotics, prebiotics, and nutrients. All of which help in restoring optimal permeability to the intestine.
Bacteria used in supplementation are; Bifidobacterium, lactobacillus, and streptococci.
- Prebiotic support it Is also crucial, foods include; oats, flaxseed, onions and garlic, bananas, lentils, and artichoke.
Nutritional support for intestinal mucosal cells include, glutamine, which is the principal metabolic fuel used by cells of the small intestine. Butyric acid, the fuel used by the large intestine, and EPA and GLA derived from Omegas 3 oils. Also Omegas 3 and 6 which support regulation of the inflammatory response.
