Gut healthy diet refers to the foods that are essential to take for improving gut health. Gut healthy diet increase the number of good bacteria in our gut and remove the harmful bacteria. Beneficial bacteria of our gut improve gut health. A higher number of good bacteria in the gut means better gut health. Better gut health causes an improvement of mental health, reduce the digestive problem (gas, bloating, chronic diarrhea and constipation), reduce the risk of colon cancer and improve the immune system.
Prescription of antibiotics for intestinal bacterial infection mainly depends on several symptoms and causes. Several bacteria known as food poisoning bacteria cause bacterial intestinal infection or gastroenteritis or food poisonings. No antibiotics are suggested for simple infection. But in case of acute infection, physicians suggest several antibiotics for intestinal bacterial infection.
Probiotics for men slightly varies from probiotics for women. Our next post will discuss “best probiotics for women. This content is on the best probiotics for men.
Probiotics are the food or supplement or capsule that contain several bacterial strains. These strains cause a benefit to our gut health as well as immune system and mental health. These bacterial strains keep the right balance of gut bacteria. They support the beneficial gut bacteria to grow and inhibit the harmful bacteria.
Better gut health helps a person maintain a happier life. As gut health become destroyed by different reasons, it is necessary to heal your gut. To heal your gut you will have to maintain several simple techniques.
A healthy gut represents a better balance of gut bacteria. A human gut comprises trillion of various bacteria that affect the body functioning. For example, gut bacteria helps your body obtain a better gut health by breaking down food particles, absorbing nutrients, breaking down some medications and by inhibiting the growth of some infectious bacteria. These gut bacteria also affect the human brain. It is said that “human gut microbiome is the second brain in the human body”.
Bacillus cereus is a spore-producing rod-shaped, gram-positive bacterium. It releases toxins that result in vomiting or diarrhea. Bacillus cereus infections are self-limiting, mild, and harmless. Some strains of this bacterium are beneficial as it is used as probiotics for animals. Bacillus cereus is a food-borne bacteria. It also found in soil. It causes fried rice syndrome. Spore formation causes it to survive adverse environments including normal cooking temperatures. This bacterium is also resistant to alcohol treatment. Few strains of this bacterium produce bacteriocins used to kill the other strains of Bacillus cereus or other gram-positive bacteria.
The increased rate of foodborne disease has become a great concern over the world. Every year millions of people are infected with foodborne pathogens, get hospitalized and die due to the consumption of foods along with a variety of foodborne pathogens transmitted onto foods. There are several bacteria that cause foodborne disease associated with various food, we consume every day. In this context, a list of foodborne disease has been discussed along with the associated infectious bacteria and foods they found. This list of foodborne disease makes you understand the symptoms of food poisoning, foods, hygeine, and bacteria.
We were 5th batch both in the microbiology department and in the university. After orientation class, the first lecture of our whole university life was delivered in Room No 304 of Bangabandhu Academic Building. It was the most beautiful room in the Microbiology department. We were waiting for our teacher to enter the room. On that day we didn’t know all of our friends (total of 35 students). I only introduced with 4/5 friends.
Endosymbiosis is a relationship where one organism lives inside the other and both are benefited. It is thought that ancestral eukaryotic cells consumed aerobic bacteria and photosynthetic bacteria leading them to evolve into mitochondria and chloroplast respectively. Endosymbiotic theory stats that, the modern eukaryotic cells (mitochondria ) evolved in steps through inter-cooperation into cells from a nuclear line of descendants of chemoorganotrophic and phototrophic symbionts. It states that Mitochondria and Chloroplast were free-living bacteria that established residency in the primitive eukaryotic cells, eventually yielding the modern eukaryotic cell. Symbiosis is a specific type of relationship in which organisms from two different species live in a close, dependent relationship take advantages from each other.
Antibiotic resistance is increasing day by day over the world and this will cause a dramatic danger to the human civilization. It is now suspected that millions of people will die due to the increasing antibiotic resistance by 2050. Therefore, this increased resistance emphasizes the researchers to find new antimicrobial agents for combating microbial diseases. This article describes 15 antibiotic alternatives some of which may have strong antimicrobial effectiveness against microbial infection.
Vaccine is an immunomodulator that prevents microbial infection. The first vaccine was discovered by Edward Jenner.
The vaccine came to us through an excellent history. The concept of vaccine came from a milkmaid woman. She informed Edward Jenner that “she had suffered from cowpox and never get smallpox”. This information leads Jenner to an experiment for developing vaccine.
In 1796, he collected scrapings from cowpox blister and injected into a healthy young boy. A few days later, the boy became sick and recovered soon and never got either cowpox or smallpox.
