What is the Human Microbiome?

The human microbiome consists of all of the microorganisms that reside in or on the human body.
These microorganisms outnumber all other cells in the body by 10-fold. Some of these microorganisms cause illnesses, but many are necessary for good health. Although these microorganisms reside in places like the skin and the nose, the largest number and most diverse variety of them occupy the digestive system. Fittingly, they are collectively called the “GI microbiome.”


Role of probiotics in metabolic health and weight management:

Research now indicates that the balance of flora in the gut is related to body weight. Studies in both animals and humans demonstrate that lean individuals have different types and more diversity of flora than individuals who are obese.1

Lactobacillus gasseri

This member of the Lactobacillus family is one of two species with both human and animal data that supports a role in weight management.* A human study on Lactobacillus gasseri found an average 4.6% reduction in visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue with accompanying positive effects on body weight, waist circumference, and body mass index.2* Other common Lactobacillus organisms
(such as L. acidophilus and L. fermentum) might actually improve energy utilization but might increase the risk of weight gain.3

Bifidobacterium (longum and bifidum)

Bifidobacterium species are dominant in the mucus membrane that lines the large intestine. B. bifidum supports healthy gut immunity and helps maintain a beneficial balance of flora in the colon.4* It also supports the maintenance of a normal pH.* Research has also found that B. bifidum and B. longum strains enhance the absorption of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous.5* B. longum further supports GI immunity and bowel regularity.* Healthy levels of Bifidobacterium might also provide protection against weight gain, particularly in childhood.6,7*


Effect of altered microbiome on metabolic processes:

Alterations to the composition and metabolic capacity of gut microbiota in obesity promote adiposity and influence metabolic processes in peripheral organs. Altered gut microbiota can control satiety in the brain (decreasing satiety), increase intestinal permeability (resulting in inflammation), and increase the synthesis, storage, and metabolism of lipids in the adipose tissue, liver, and muscle.8
