Good Gut Solution interviewed Kiran Krishnan this week on all the latest research and findings on the Microbiome.
Kiran Krishnan is a Microbiologist & Chief Scientific Officer of Microbiome Labs. Kiran is a frequent lecturer on the Human Microbiome at Medical and Nutrition Conferences worldwide. He is currently involved in 4 clinical trials on probiotics and how they relate to overall health.
Over the last 12 years Kiran has been focused on the study of the Human Microbiome.
I was grateful to have the chance to talk with Kiran about his latest research and ask him some important questions about his current understanding of the microbiome.
We have a lot of new information that we’ll be sharing with you over the next coming weeks.
As you know, there are trillions of bacteria living in your gut. Most of these trillion microorganisms have been there practically from the day you were born. What you may not know, however, is exactly how they have a profound effect on your health.
When your gut is out of order, it is a primary cause of many non-infectious diseases such as autoimmunity, allergies, asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
- 100 trillion microorganisms occupy your gut
- 99% of reactions for human function are controlled by your gut.
- 80% of your immune tissue is found in the gastrointestinal tract.
Overwhelming scientific evidence illustrates the critical role these microbes play in both the function and dysfunction of the immune system and overall well being.
We asked Kiran why probiotics are such an important therapy for overall health. Here’s what he had to say.
