Is there anything that gut flora cannot do?
Yesterday, we discussed how the beneficial bacteria in your gut protect you from invaders, as well as their role in building a healthy intestinal tract.
Today, it gets even better!
Turns out that these bacteria also produce the entire spectrum of B vitamins, Vitamin K2, and amino acids. So when your body is running low on vitamin B16, for example, it calls your gut flora and has tells it to produce more of it. Very cool!
Also, in a nation obsessed with detoxification, we have completely ignored the role of gut flora in carrying harmful, cancer-causing chemicals and heavy metals out of our bodies. Wait until you hear about the rat study that demonstrated just how protective your gut flora (when healthy, of course) can be in eliminating mercury from your body. Absolutely mind blowing.
