Fiber and buterate reduce gut inflammation – Dr. Greger Aug 2019

Flashback Friday: Prebiotics – Tending Our Inner Garden

Snips from video transcript

  • “The total surface area of our gut is about 3,000 square feet, counting all the little folds, larger than a tennis court.”
  • “If you think about it, there’s got to be a way for our good bacteria to signal to our immune system that they’re the good guys. And, that signal is butyrate. Butyrate suppresses the inflammatory reaction, tells our immune system to stand down.”
  • “Butyrate calms the immune system down, saying in effect, all’s well, you’ve got the good guys on board, ultimately rendering the intestinal immune system hyporesponsive to the beneficial bacteria.”
  • “… we evolved to have butyrate suppress our immune reaction”
  • “If we don’t eat enough fiber, then we can’t make enough butyrate.”
