Low levels of certain bacteria in the gut leads to obesity

In their study, which was conducted on animals, scientists have used living in the gut bacteria as a means to lose weight and control diabetes. The results showed that the use of broth with the content of a certain type of bacteria dramatically change the health of rodents suffering from obesity. Currently, scientists are going to conduct an experiment involving human subjects in order to determine which of the bacteria can be used to get rid of excess weight.

In the human body contains many kinds of bacteria and microorganisms, and conducted scientific researches prove that their concentration has an impact on human health, and can be an effective tool for solving problems with excess weight. In addition, it was found that bacteria in the intestine is thin and full of people differ from each other in the number and kinds.

According to Professor Patric Kani from the Catholic University of Leuven, scientists can not guarantee that the new method will lead to dramatic weight loss, but one thing is for sure that it will give the opportunity to consistently reduce fat mass. After gastric bypass balance of bacteria in the gut has been changed.

Belgian scientists worked with one type of bacteria known as Akkermansia muciniphila. This type is 3-5 percent of the total number of intestinal bacteria, but their presence has a major impact on the degree of obesity. Experiment on mice found that those individuals who had a large amount of fat mass had in the intestine is almost 3 times less bacteria mentioned species than rodents with normal weight. After thick mice began to feed these bacteria, they lost 50 percent of their excess weight, while their nutritional diet was not changed. In addition it was found that they had a lower degree of resistance to insulin, which is the most important symptom of diabetes.
