about microbiomes

microbiomes are the sum total of a person’s micro organism genome

Based on microbiomes it is possible to define a persons microbiota.

Microbiota is the micro organism composition that lives in people.

In every day situations doesn’t cause sickness. Most of the micro organisms live in the human gut.

The digestive system microbiota influences your immune system (antibody production), digestion (break down of fiber, vitamin production) and resistance to colonisation by pathogens.

Micro organisms can be divided into three groups: useful, potentially harmful and harmful.

The normal digestive system microbiota is a balanced community called eubiosis. A unbalanced community is called disbiosis. Digestive system diseases such as ulcerative colitis, irritated bowel syndrome as well as obesity, diabetes, allergies and other chronic diseases are associated with disbiosis.

The composition of your digestive tract microbiota are influenced by your genes, age, living environment, diet, diseases and medicines. These factors depend on the microbe groups that dominate in your digestive tract, also called enterotypes.

The microbiota in your digestive tract can be influenced by your diet, by increasing “useful” and reducing “potentially pathogenic” micro organisms.
