A Different Kind Of Gut Feeling: How Intestinal Bacteria Could Manipulate Your Brain

A Different Kind Of Gut Feeling: How Intestinal Bacteria Could Manipulate Your Brain | NaturalRemedies | Scoop.it

"Our guts contain trillions of bacteria, all of which control our minds in order to get the foods they want. Controlling them back may help fight obesity,"

 

"The next time you can’t figure out why you’re suddenly craving a huge slab of ultra-decadent chocolate cake—consider the possibility that it’s not just you doing the craving. New research suggests that the armies of bacteria living in our guts can pull the strings in our brains to get what they want."

 

We’ve all heard about the bacterial universe within our bodies, but what’s less well known is just how vast this universe is in comparison to the rest of us: bacteria outnumber all of the cells in our body 100 to 1. And just like us, certain bacteria have a taste for certain nutrients, and they’ve developed ways of influencing their hosts to deliver more of their preferred vittles to the dinner table.

If you can run for five minutes a day, you may add years to your life

If you can run for five minutes a day, you may add years to your life | NaturalRemedies | Scoop.it

Running for just five to 10 minutes a few times a week could add three years to your life, researchers have found.


They say gentle exercise is as important for good health as stopping smoking.


A study over 15 years of 55,000 people aged between 18 and 100 found that joggers overall were 30 per cent less likely to die during the period than couch potatoes. They were 45 per cent less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke.

I have read in many other sources that the most important thing is to at least exercise a little and that, while more may be better, you can do great things for your health with as little as 10 minutes a day, three or four times a week.
