As about 80% of our immune system is in our gut it makes sense that our gut plays a large part in our health. There has been much scientific research done and the findings are now widely available to view on the internet. This research has led to a very common conclusion that the micro-organisms present in the gastrointestinal tract could influence how severely we get COVID-19. This research also shows for the first time, that the virus replicates in our gut bacteria.
Known as the second brain of the human body, the gut microbiome is a set of bacteria, fungi, viruses and small parasites lodged in our intestines. Scientific research has shown a strong relationship between the gut and the brain. It affects our moods, stress, anxiety and can cause depression.
Coronaviruses replicate in our cells and research has now shown they are replicating in the bacteria of our gut.
The gut microbiome communicates with other organs in the body and plays important roles within the body; digestion, the partitioning of the intestine and digestive waste from other organs, our inflammatory and immune responses to diseases and the communication between our different organs.
Coronaviruses interacting with an imbalance in our gut microbiome could actually make the disease more severe. It is extremely important to maintain a healthy gut!
Several studies also show that these viruses could potentially compromise our intestinal barrier, which would allow bacterial endotoxins to escape from the intestine and to reach the blood circulation. Intestinal bacteria have been found in the lungs of patients suffering from COVID-19. In order words, this permeability can lead to multi-organ complications, affecting patients’ lungs, heart, liver and kidneys.
