A metabolic disorder occurs when the metabolic processes fail, leading to too much or too little of essential substances that the body needs to stay healthy. We usually think of these processes as dictated by foods we eat. However, the composition of the gut microbiota and the metabolites they produce can also interact with our metabolic functions, causing imbalance in gut microbiota populations, compromised immune system and breakdown in the integrity of the gut lining. A continued interruption in these functions can lead to Obesity, Diabetes, Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and Cardiovascular Disease.

At any given time,
only about 100-150 microbes predominate or are active. These organisms help us digest our food, produce vitamins such as vitamin B and K, keep our gut lining intact, and keep our immunity in check. Our bacterial diversity is of primary importance to prevent dysbiosis. Our diversity decreases as we age, but is also highly adaptable to our environment, especially the foods we eat or what toxins we are exposed to.

An imbalance can lead to bowel disorders, allergies, autoimmune disorders and even obesity. Prebiotic’s, probiotics and fermented foods are significant components to add into the diet to combat dysbiosis and bring balance to gut health and immunity.
