Unhealthy gut can lead to dementia & stroke, says study

Pay attention to the state of your stomach and digestion because according to a new study, an imbalance in the gut of the elderly may lead to conditions like stroke and dementia that are linked to age.

Persistent inflammation causes an imbalance called dysbiosis of gut bacteria. This leads to bad bacteria being more prevalent than good bacteria. More bad bacteria makes the lining of the gut more porous. This means toxins can enter the bloodstream and travel around the body causing damage.

Dysbiosis can lead to many health issues like inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, anxiety and autism.

Inflammation leads to many diseases linked to ageing, and making major changes to the diet and probiotics can alter the make up of the gut. This helps reduce inflammation and promotes healthy ageing.
