Exercise may have an impact on the health of the gut, according to a new study published in the journal Gut. Gut health is the wellness topic du jour—and with good reason. Our bodies are home to trillions of bacteria, with some 500 species residing in our gastrointestinal tracts alone. These microbes affect everything from digestion and immunity to metabolic disorders and brain health. Exercise boosts well-being by improving gut health.

Researchers believe that physical activity can influence a person’s overall health because of its effect on gut health. A new study explains the. Study Finds Exercise May Boost Gut Health. A new study shows that exercise, along with a diverse diet that includes protein, can help the body’s multifaceted microbiome thrive. By Maggie Fazeli Fard| June 24, 2014.

Gut health is the wellness topic du jour — and with good reason. An acute exercise bout may affect the transportation of gut-derived phenolics by flavonoid intake into the circulation, the study mentions. “This study adds to the building picture that New Zealand blackcurrant is beneficial for health and fitness when combined with exercise,” ​ concludes Dr Willems. TUESDAY, June 10, 2014 (HealthDay News) Exercise can increase the diversity of bacteria found in the gut, possibly boosting the immune system and improving long-term health, British researchers report. High levels of dietary protein might have the same effect, according to their study, published June 9 in the journal Gut.

The findings of the study suggest that exercising at high-intensity levels may positively alter the presence, activity and clustering of gut microbes which promote health. Until now, it was unclear how body fat percentage or physical activity related to greater microbiota diversity, despite its link to cardiorespiratory fitness being known. “We now know that exercise is crucial for increasing beneficial bacteria in the gut.” According to Durk, findings from this study and other studies about the gut microbiome could eventually be used.

A new study finds even moderate exercise during pregnancy increases a compound in breast milk that reduces a baby’s lifelong risks of serious health. A study in Mayo Clinic Proceedings from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases provides new evidence of an association between cardiorespiratory fitness and brain health. A new study finds that adding crickets to your daily diet regimen may be good for your gut and offers several health benefits.

Valerie Stull, lead author of the study and recent doctoral graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Institute for Environmental Studies, started eating insects herself at age 12 during a family vacation to.

And researchers in the US have noticed, when they analyze the gut microbes of various volunteers, that people who exercise have a more diverse gut microbiome than those who don’t exercise.

  • I caught your video that was attached to an article online and I was like who IS this girl?!?
    She’s too adorable!
    Yes, I will be following you…
    I a healthy way! hahahaha!

  • I’m confused. Most professionals advise us people with IBS to avoid certain fruits like ripe bananas or vegetables and to introduce more meat in our regimes.

  • So important considering that your gut microbiome impacts everything from your immune system to your skin to your brain function to your digestion, and even your mood and mental health!! ��✨

  • recently, the mechanism of depression was discovered. it’s not by bacteria. it’s by virus.
    https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2589004220303722#!

  • The world needs more vague generalities about things that help stuff get “better”. Clearly ten servings of rye bread per day and ten servings of sourdough bread per day will eliminate disease and aging from planet Earth forever.

  • sir you are correct.
    I have been through surgical operations and today I am suffering with liver and pancirus.
    i consume probiotics and do intermittent dieting I am a lot better and take Apple cider vinegar that improves my body alkalinity and enjoy comedy movies and avoit, stressful situation and worry so I won’t secrete Allison menotolin and dopomin and have healed my bloating and on the upside without treatment. thanx any advice will b highly appreciated John

  • I was sitting on the computer for 24 hours through my high school years, but never had any health problem except weak muslces, after I graduated and got a job as a Janitor, and I sign up a gym membership which I feel more active.

  • This is really interesting…. That self fulfilling prophecy. Nobody talks about this. An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay at motion…trippy. Different approaches to exercise almost seem obvious when taken into consideration. Don’t want to baby people but it really is like speaking to two different kinds of humans. And then one person can become another kind of human by changing their microbiome. From this perspective The goal shouldn’t even be “to exercise”…. Like literally nobody finds that motivating lol…. And now we know exactly why hahaha. The motivation and education around the gradual changes and experiences of a changing microbiome are fascinating and can be like rocket fuel in motivation. Thank you

  • so dissappointing hardly a mention of fruit, the most important food for a diverse gut microbiota due to the high level of fibre, particularly pectin, not to mention the abundance of polyphenols. seaweed and yoghurt… lol..

  • PROF SIMON CARDING,UR PRESENTATION IS SUPERB.PLZ LEAVE UR E MAIL, MOBILE NS & COMPLETE ADDRESS IF ONE NEEDS UR HELP HOW ONE CAN GET IN TOUCH WITH U.WHAT R THE PROCEDURES U HAVE UNDER UR CARE THAT ONE CAN AVAIL.THANKS INDEED FOR UR VERY ENLIGHTENING TALK.

  • A good information.
    The
    sedentary life style we all lead affects our physicial health in ways we
    don’t even imagine

  • All mental health problems are caused by severe calcium deficiency. This begins in the womb or in infancy. The human body can assimilate calcium only from fresh, natural, uncooked foods especially leafy greens and grasses, wheatgrass. Artificial supplements do not work. The best way to get the calcium from greens is through green smoothies.

    Brain chemical imbalances have never been proved.

    One of the reasons why mental health problems generally develop or manifest in late adolescence is because of the body’s need for tremendous amounts of calcium due to the sudden spurt in physical growth.

    Calcium is needed for proper neurotransmitter function.

    It is also important to minimise chronic cellular inflammation by avoiding white sugar, refined carbs and oils and fats that increase cellular inflammation.

    Cellular inflammation prevents the absorption of nutrients vitamins and minerals.

  • Eat foods high in Chlorophyll, iron, drink water, and eliminate muscle in your body. Plus, ginkgo biloba trees to plant it and then make tea from the bark. It Works amazing for your brain health.

  • I take probiotic and does’nt work.please help me. 3 months nausea.im scaring to die.all blood analysis are well.echo = steatosis liver.all doctors say that im fine.but really chronic nausea

  • No such things as bad bugs!If you allow your body to become a certain way with certain terrain inside and out, THAT is what determines what bugs are in your gut!!THE germ theory of disease is wrong, IT IS ALL About the terrain and electrical frequencies that you are attracting or not in your body!

  • Watch Heal Your Gut Guy videos! They are informative! He healed himself of alot of gut issues like Chrohns, candida, food allergies etc

  • Have you heard of Sirtuin suppressors? One 1/16 th of a sq inch of bay leaf<>boiled in tea will start cell cycle arrest of all germs in your urine. I was experimenting with a tea, and I put too much bay leaf in, which is more potent in water than turned down in a beef stew. The doctor I went to the next day let me I had no germs in my urine; however, because of the of the cramping I had from the excess amount (2 bay leaves), this collapsed my cervix! I do not know how long this would take to get to tissue to make no germs. As always talk with your doctor. This is on NIH’s Pub Med NCBI and this is a SIRT 2 suppressor.

  • Cool thank you Home remedies Rx for yeast infection, candidiasis, candidia

    Suggestions list: oregano �� oil take internally, take coconut �� oil and use, cut out alcohol that causes more sugars, cut gluten (my suggestion or balance lectin Shield), cut sugar out, probiotics. Pau de arco. And drink water and exercise. Also worry overthinking can make worse.

    aprylic acid, Echinacea, colloidal silver, whole leaf aloe vera juice, garlic, citrus seed extract, oat straw tea, or probiotics such as lactobacillus acidophilus
    Doterra GX 10 days, then PB Assist pro-pre bio.

  • Is it possible that a change in diet created sauerkraut intolerance and obesity? And eating sauerkraut daily would after some time make body get rid of those bacteria which weren’t there before while on the old diet with sauerkraut and other fermented foods?

  • Germfree animals live longer but are sicker… That don’t make much sense…
    But, if we look at people that live away from others, they are very healthy and have much more abilities. But if we interact with them, they get killed by our bacteria, viruses and so on.

  • G.A.B.A. IS TREU,,ITS WELL…JUST STUDY IT,…. HE,S CO,PLEEETELY DIFFUSING GABA WITH GBL AND GHB AND PRE, GABA,LINE…. LITTTTLE CONFUSING PROF!

  • I would love to help you on achieving your optimal health! Fulvic Acid comes from the depths of the Earth containing 70+ minerals and vitamins. It also contains electrolytes, prebiotics, enzymes, antioxidants, and amino acids. This is SO powerful, bringing 45% more oxygen at the cellular level, leading to better breathing. Incorporating fulvic in your body can: improve gut health, enhance circulation, improve brain function, help nutrients absorb better, detox heavy metals/toxins, and more. I have never seen a supplement like this. It has changed my life. Feel free to look around on my website.:)

  • Old school 1/2 tsp of baking soda with water reduces inflammation after two weeks, cleans out the gut, it’s in your kitchen, drink a serving daily.

  • Once you LEARN, REALISE and ACKNOWLEDGE this…The next step is to ACT UPON IT with DIET CHANGE and POWERFUL GOOD QUALITY PROBIOTICS then REAP the REWARDS. ALLOW YOURSELF TO HEAL. ACCEPT IT AND MAKE IT YOUR NEW REALITY…take that first STEP �� T ��.❤

  • Seriously? Red meat? People are doing carnivore diet are showing amazing benefits. even some people who were Vegan switched to it. What explanation can you give for that to happen?

  • Does having a healthy gut Correlate to every organ in your body? Just curious if anyone know because if that so then healing the gut means you’ll eventually be healthy from all other diseases

  • @ 31:11 Excess Carbohydrates from the Sugar in the Coke and the Wheat in the buns/rolls that the burger is in, is the root cause of the weight gain. Meat and Fat eaten on it’s own isn’t going to cause weight gain, however, I have seen Sugar added to some Bacon and Chicken in Supermarkets, which really isn’t in the farmed natural product and shouldn’t be added; so not sure if the fast food outlets do the same. To avoid weight gain and cure themselves of Carbohydrate related diseases (of which there are many) people turn to LCHF/Low-Carb or Carnivore where the safe Carbohydrates consumed are Vegetables as far as LCHF/Low-Carb is concerned. In the scheme of things Carbohydrates are not essential because the body can process non-Carbohydrate food via the Gluconeogenesis process, which yes outputs Glucose, which is the only form of fuel that one’s Mitochondria require.

  • Also, mothers often chew their food first and give it to their babies when they are very little that must pass on good bacteria too! ��❤️

  • Best thing you can do for your health is stay away from a doctor girls should look into avoiding the contraception pill as well

    Hundreds of years from now, people will look back in medical care in this age with horror

  • TOTAL HEALTH(short version): tea of 22 herbs (4 bitter), 16 spices, a thin sliced lime (8 times more lamonoids than lemon) with trace elements and honey. A little apple cider vinegar if you want.

  • I would guess its the preservatives in processed food that kill the gut bacteria, see how preservatives job are to kill things that would digest the food/ go rotten.

  • So this guy just proves I AM WONDERFULLY MADE by my savior JESUS CHRIST!!!!! Any doctor who wants a real challenge and become famous-come find me and fix my gut. I am documented as permanently malnourished, I have 3/4 of my Antrum, Pylorus, and the first portion of my duodenum AND the Vagus Nerve WAS CUT. I would do anything to eat fast food, or even a steak, potato and broccoli. Probiotics, Activa, Boost, I get short term diarrhea, IF I dilute the aforementioned it turns to Long term diarrhea. I do NOT eat sugar I get diarrhea, I’ll close this out and say usually every Friday night I eat creamed spinach and grilled chicken then stay sick Sat-early Monday-FIX THIS

  • THERS BTW A,,,,,LOT OF L!! -‘ NUTRIENTFACTORAL,..PFF STUFFS LIKE: “L-TRYPTOFANE, L-‘LEUCINE,L-‘ ETC AT LESSEST 23 DIFF., FORMS,,SEARCH,IT UP!!

  • What? Did he just say we need sugar everyday to keep our microbiome healthy at 10:30?
    What about the Carnivore s who haven’t eaten anything but meat for 10 + years?

  • Imagine, bacteria is making you watch this video because they realised they need a better and more regulated environment.

    Like every decision we take that also affects the planet.

  • Normal amount of exercise increases gut microbiome but from the other side too much exercise increases stress which in return could hinder digestion. Well from my own experience, cycling overtraining pushed my digestion out of balance. Food wasn’t digesting properly, stomach was bloated a lot. After recovery everything is back to normal.

  • I can’t even take probiotics as soon as I do they start fighting with something inside and massive lethargy and depression follows

    Same with coconut oil capsule insane die-off (I assume)

    Tough to know how to get started

  • That old man who lived in England to 150 ate his garden veggies, shook off dirt and ate raw. He out lived many wives and many more children whom all ate cooked food. The king had everything but he wanted the oldest man. As he was forced to eat from the King’s table… He dies a few yrs later, at 150. Could hv lived longer.

  • He says “55 to 60 g of sugar daily to keep your body”s microbes healthy” I’m not sure if this is correct. Also what does this imply for the minimum amount of carbs we need to consume daily?

  • The good professor and his forever ignorant colleagues should have listened more carefully to Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride instead of demonizing her.
    Her work on gut and psychology syndrome was ignored by all of you “clever” scientists….

  • I just had a c-section and so this was just another confirmation that I need to continue on my journey to heal my gut. Such a great lecture! thank you! Learned a lot

  • I have Ocular Toxoplasmosis and I have found the fact about Lactobacillus Casei that attacks this parasite and makes me feel good.
    The Bipolar 1-Mania will be cured too. I am trying my best. I wrote to http://www.mpa.se and http://www.ivo.se about this.

  • In what imaginary fantasy world is 99.99% of the population going to fit in this insane amount of exercise into their schedules
    given the QUADRILLION MORE important things to worry about of immediate and future concern?

  • What about students?
    In my highschool i have to sit for 2,5 hours 2 times per day and that is not even counting the time sitting at home
