The importance of micro-organisms for your gut


Let's face it: the world of gut health isn't always easy to understand. But I'm going to make sure that you're equipped with all the information you need to feel comfortable and confident in taking care of your body's microbiome. In this blog post, I'll start by explaining what microorganisms are and why they're important for your health. Then we'll move on from there to what a "healthy" microbiome looks like, how you can know if yours is out of whack or not doing its job very well, and what steps you can take to keep things running smoothly.

Microorganisms are important for health.

You may not think of microorganisms as something that's important to your health, but they are. Microorganisms are essential for life, and they make up a huge part of our bodies. In fact, one in three cells in our bodies is actually a microorganism!

In addition to helping us digest food and fight disease, these microscopic organisms also play an important role in regulating our immune system--they help keep it strong so that we can fight off infections without getting sick all the time.

The gut microbiome.

The microbiome is the collection of microorganisms that live in your gut. Your microbiome plays an important role in health, and it's made up of trillions of bacteria--the largest reservoir of bacteria in the body. The gut microbiome helps regulate immune system function, breaks down food for digestion, produces vitamins, and helps you digest certain foods better than others (like lactose).

The lymphatic system, skin, and lungs are also part of your body's microbiome.

The lungs, skin, and lymphatic system are also part of your body's microbiome. The lungs are a major site of immune function and produce white blood cells that help fight infection. Skin is the largest organ in the body and makes up about 15% of its weight. It covers all parts of our bodies except for our mucous membranes (mouths, noses, and reproductive organs). The skin provides protection from pathogens by secreting substances like sweat or oil that keep out unwanted organisms while allowing water vapor to pass through it into the atmosphere; regulates body temperature by acting like an insulator against heat loss or gain; absorbs some vitamins from the food we eat before they enter the bloodstream

How do you know if you have a problem with your microbiome?

If you're not sure if you have a problem with your microbiome, it's important to know that there are some signs and symptoms of dysbiosis. These can include:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Gas and bloating after meals

If you think that these symptoms might be affecting your health, there are a few things that you can do:

  • Get tested for dysbiosis by speaking with your doctor or another healthcare professional. A stool sample is usually collected in order to test for microorganisms in the digestive tract. This may sound weird, but it's actually pretty common! Your doctor will then use this information to help determine if further treatment is necessary.

When to take action.

You may be wondering when to take action. There are a few signs that your gut microbiome is disrupted, and it's important to pay attention to them. If you have chronic health problems like diabetes or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), this could be an indication that something is wrong with your gut microbiome. You also want to make sure that your microbiome isn't disrupted if you're having digestive problems such as gas, bloating, or diarrhea--all of which can happen when there's an imbalance in the good vs bad bacteria in our guts.

If you're having trouble losing weight or feel like food doesn't seem as satisfying anymore, then chances are there is some kind of imbalance going on inside of you too! This is because many hormones are produced by bacteria within our bodies: one example being leptin which helps regulate appetite control so if there aren't enough good bacteria around they won't produce enough leptin which makes it harder for us not only to lose weight but also stay full after eating meals too quickly (or even at all!). Finally, if someone has skin issues such as acne rosacea redness patches would mean their immune system isn't working properly because these symptoms often come back again once medication stops working properly."

What can you do?

  • Eat a healthy diet. The foods you eat are the building blocks for your body, so it's important to choose high-quality ingredients that will keep you energized and feeling good.
  • Take probiotics regularly. Probiotics can help restore good bacteria in the gut and improve overall health by boosting immunity, improving digestion, and preventing infections.
  • Exercise regularly to reduce stress levels while also releasing endorphins that make us feel happier! Studies have shown that exercise can even reduce symptoms of depression by up to 50% in some cases!


We hope this article has been helpful for you to understand the importance of your microbiome and how it affects your health. As we mentioned earlier, there's still a lot we don't know about this intricate system in our bodies, but with more research being done every day, we're getting closer to understanding how it works and how we can take care of ourselves better by supporting our gut bacteria through diet and lifestyle choices like exercising regularly or not smoking cigarettes!
