An imbalance of specific intestinal bacteria can lead to increased inflammation in the intestines, resulting in a so-called “silent inflammation”.
The bacteria Akkermansia muciniphila and Faecalibacterium prausnitzii counteract this development: Akkermansia muciniphila is responsible for the production of highly viscous mucous and, thereby, strengthens the intestinal barrier so that foreign germs and harmful substances cannot overcome the intestinal mucosa and enter the bloodstream. Faecalibacterium prausnitzii bacteria, on the other hand, produce special fatty acids, including butyric acid (= butyrate). These fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and, most importantly, supply the intestinal mucosa with energy, thus strengthening the “tight junctions”. The latter are connections (membrane proteins) between the cells of the intestinal mucosa and ensure that important nutrients are selected and separated from harmful substances.
Inflammation in the intestines often occurs in overweight people, as special fat cells in the abdomen produce pro-inflammatory cytokines that can harm the entire organism.
