The microbiota is essential for the development and maintenance of our immune system. The alteration of the intestinal microbiota can be associated with asthma, allergies and eczema, as well as the immune responses against flu viruses and endocrine, metabolic and immune changes typical of pregnancy. Among the major disturbs of the microbiota there are antibiotics, which do not distinguish in destroying both pathogenic bacteria and “good” bacteria. Another capacity of the microbiota is to witness us in the digestion of food fibers and in the absorption of some minerals, but also in the synthesis of amino acids and fundamental vitamins.
Genechron proposes a test capable of identifying the exact profile of the microbioma of each individual and can be associated with the advice of qualified doctors and nutritionists. The reported report allows you to customize a food plan or the intake of specific supplements so as to positively modify the microbiota and therefore the immune system, the metabolism and the detoxifying skills of our body.
An alteration of the microbiota can also be the cause of parent-urinary infections often characterized by a significant increase in several strains of Escherichia coli that are part of the so -called “good” bacteria contained in large numbers in the intestine.
In the case of women, the vaginal microbiota also comes into play. Urinary tract infections can therefore reach the urethra, therefore, climb through the urethra to the bladder and, sometimes, in the kidneys.
The vaginal microbiota is in itself a tank of pathogens independent of the intestinal microbiota. In particular, some species of lactobacilli are equipped with protective functions and their decrease increases both the risk of urinary tract infections and that of bacterial vaginosis. Among the factors that can alter the vaginal microbiota, unprotected relationships, oral contraceptives, exposure to antimicrobials, the use of some spermalids (can be located in prophylatics treated or in the diaphragm) as well as the hormonal state of pregnancy and breastfeeding are included. . Approaches aimed at reducing the alteration of the intestinal and vaginal microbiota could reduce the risk of urinary tract infections and disorders associated with the vaginal microbiota.
