The effects of gut microbes in our health
95% of the 30 trillion microorganisms living in our body are concentated in our gut. Microbiomes not only do they participate in the food digestion process, but they also constantly interact with the immune system in the large intestine, which its home to 70% of immune regulatory cells. It also provides the energy and essential nutrients our body needs through metabolism.
As such, the gut microbiome not only affects gut health, but also metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes and the immune system.
