The human body is an ecosystem that hosts trillions of microbes, the body’s normal microbiomes, which are essential for the proper functioning of the body.
Each person has their own microbiome which is unique and is formed from the day of their birth.
The microbiome acts as a protector with protective and antibacterial substances.
It consists mainly of bacteria (which make up the largest number), fungi, viruses.
Their concentration takes place primarily in the intestine but also in other parts of the body such as on the surface and in the deeper skin layers, in the mouth, in the vagina, etc.
- Gut microbiome
- Skin microbiome
- Oral microbiome
- Vaginal microbiome
- Nasal microbiome
The intestine is very important, it is the largest part and has the following functions:
- It ensures the proper functioning of the digestive system.
- It plays a major role in assimilating food that cannot be digested by the stomach and small intestine.
- It fights pathogenic microorganisms.
- It helps to regulate the immune system.
- It helps in the production of vitamins.
The regulation of the intestinal microbiome is affected by age, with the result that it changes from younger to older ages.
The environment and diet play an important role in the proper functioning of the microbiome.
It is negatively affected by various health problems, inflammatory diseases, obesity, allergies, diabetes etc.
On the other hand, alterations in the composition of the normal flora (microbiome) are blamed for diseases such as:
- Heart diseases
- Disorders in brain function
- Celiac disease
- Inflammatory bowel diseases
Without the contact of the human body from birth, with microorganisms, there would be no ability of the organism to respond through its defense against pathogenic organisms.
All categories related to the HUMAN MICROBIOME are carried out in the Biomedigen diagnostic centers.
