Wellness Wednesday: gut bacteria and glucose levels

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

I wrote here that I was a bit unsure about the benefits of improved diversity in "good" bacteria in your gut.

An interesting post-script to that post, in this arstechnia article regarding artificial sweetners and glucose intolerance, discussing a study in which researchers determined that artificial sweetners negatively alter the makeup of bacteria in your gut, researchers opined that the imbalanced nature of the bacteria actually caused glucose intolerance.  The theory seems to be that the gut bacteria play an important role in your insulin sensitivity.

One more card stacking the deck toward making the effort to promote a healthy diversity of bacteria in your gut!
