Microbiota: intestinal microbiota and diseases

By comparing the microbial compositions of the microbiota with people suffering from health problems, it has been found that these microorganisms play an important role.

Studies have shown that the diversity of bacteria present in the intestinal micribiote is less important in obese people.

Depending on what you eat, the composition of these bacteria changes. Thus the ingestion of certain fibers, proteins ... influences the biodiversity of the intestinal microbiota.

Result: the diversity of these bacteria would have very different consequences on digestion and metabolism, with more or less significant energy expenditure, a variable fat storage, a feeling of sasiety more or less ... It could therefore have a major influence for the treatment or prevention of pathologies, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or obesity.

The microbiota, our health ally?

The microbiota is more and more about him. Would he be our secret health ally? It must be recognized that bacteria are not necessarily bad! Indeed, bacteria can even be very useful, as we can see more and more thanks to the recent research work done in this area. These bacteria that we carry on our skin, or inside our digestive tract for example, and who participate in the proper functioning of our body, are called the microbiota

Microbiota: cutaneous microbiota and allergies

Researchers and doctors have more and more scientific arguments that allergies are partly due to changes in these colonies of bacteria. By comparing the skin of people with allergies (atopic) of people who are not, we realize that the skins do not have exactly the same families of bacteria. It has been a long time since we have been trying to understand the increase in the number of people with allergies
