One study found that a person’s health and mood are closely related to the selected types of foods and types of organisms in their intestines.
This study says that food choices affect the type of organism that grows in the body and in turn will affect the overall body health.
The study, published in the ‘Nature journa’l, analyzed types of organism in the stomach of more than 170 people aged 78 years old.
Researchers found that the microbes in the intestine varies according to where people stay and what to eat. People who live in healthy communities have diverse types of organisms.
People living in health care over a long period have lower microbial variation and health tend to be weaker.
“Our findings suggest that in older people, regardless of early health conditions and genetic conditions, there is a significant difference due to aging because of food choices that impact on the intestinal bacterial ecosystem,” said researcher, Paul O’Toole, from the University College Cork , as reported by HealthDay Ireland.
Elders who originally lived in a healthy environment and then moved into health care quickly changes eating patterns, but changes in the microbes in the gut are more slowly.
It takes up to one year so that these microbes actually changes. Declining health condition does not seem to affect change in this composition, but is more influenced by diet.
Not only that, the organisms in the human gut can also affect mood. Research suggests that intestinal bacteria can ‘communicate’ with the brain through the preparation of a compound that affects the gut-brain connection. Changes in intestinal bacteria in the elderly may have an impact on cognitive function and mood.
According to previous studies, microbes that grow in the intestine produces a variety of useful products for humans occupied. The role of microbes in the gut of elderly is greater because the digestive system is weakened so that more of its functions taken over by the microbes.
“To overcome the weakness of the digestive system function, role of microbes help the body to make the digestive process to effectively and efficiently as possible,” said O’Toole.
In recent years, scientists consider the provision of treatment on the basis of the intestine, the intention is to consider the type of microorganisms presented in the gut.
The goal is so that treatment given is more effective. In order to create beneficial bacteria that grows abundantly in the intestine, one way is to eat lots of fibrous food.Recent search: stomach affects moodTagged with: intestinal bacteria, intestinal bacteria affects mood, stomach bacteria, stomach bacteria affects mood,
