In this week’s newsletter we share with you another extract from Dr David Perlmutter’s book, Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain – for Life. We will look at how our gutsy friends (good bacteria/ microbes) can reduce the risk of brain disease.
“Factors such as antibiotics and other medications, chlorinated water, certain foods, and even stress all play a part in determining the diversity and balance of the gut bacteria and, therefore, the set-point of inflammation. Not only do gut microbes influence the environment in your body, but they contribute to that environment by producing certain chemicals that affect the health of the brain and the entire nervous system. They determine the strength and fortitude of your gut wall. And they can even produce various vitamin that are essential to brain health, including B12. It’s well substantiated that low levels of B12 are a huge risk factor for dementia and other neurological challenges such as depression. The connection is straightforward: B12 synthesis in the body occurs primarily in the small intestine, where gut bacteria manufacture it using cobalt and other nutrients.
