Intestinal bacteria

A study of scientists from the Jiaotong University in Shanghai, China, suggests that the Enterobacteria can activate the development of the obesity , which consequently could be combated through subsistence allowance that strengthen microbiotic or intestinal flora .

In an interview with GetQoralHealth, Ranier Gutiérrez, specialist in Appetite Neurology , explains in the following video some of the causes that generate this disease, which affects more than 500 million people in the world, according to figures from the World Health Organization WHO :

The Enterobacteria it is part of the intestinal flora human, but was linked to the obesity after being found in large quantities in the intestine of a human volunteer with obesity morbid, according to the research published in the journal International Society for Microbial Ecology .

Through experiments with mice, the researchers observed that these bacteria intestinal flora They have the characteristic of managing nutrients to obtain more or less energy.

In addition, as part of the results of this study, explain that socio-environmental factors would have a very important role in the composition of the intestinal flora , which would enhance or not the appearance of obesity .

Apparently, as a solution to this pandemic, a diet based on fermented probiotic foods, cereals and certain traditional Chinese foods reduce to an "undetectable" level the presence of said bacterium in the intestinal flora , which throws a study done in people who helped lose weight, according to the world.


Intestinal bacteria

Intestinal bacteria play a crucial role in digestion because they provide enzymes necessary for the absorption of nutrients, synthesize certain vitamins and increase the absorption of energy obtained from food.

According to an investigation of the University of Chicago , the bacterial mechanisms that intervene in the regulation of body weight. Therefore, the obesity caused by the diet depends not only on the calories ingested, but also on the microbes present in the diet. intestinal flora.

According to his experiments, a high-fat diet causes changes in the intestinal flora . These changes in the microbiota alter the immune response, which then induces more changes to the intestinal microbial community and leads to less total fat absorption.

Therefore, vaccines and antibiotics with caloric restriction or bariatric surgery are proposed to control body weight as a future strategy to combat obesity, as well as a greater study of the role of more than 500 different strains of bacteria present in the intestinal flora .
