Gut Bacteria= Stronger Stem Cell Response

“The diversity of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract of patients receiving stem cell transplants may be an important predictor of their post-transplant survival, researchers report. Researchers found a strong connection between post-transplant gut microbiota diversity and outcomes, observing overall survival rates of 36 percent, 60 percent, and 67 percent among the low, intermediate, and high diversity groups, respectively.” – ‘Gut bacteria predict survival after stem cell transplant, study shows.’ ScienceDaily

I always believed it, now there’s proof!

WHY? Maybe because…
Stem cells are a natural healing system in the body that regenerate dead and damaged tissue and create new tissue– they require nutrients to do so. Gut bacteria helps digest food and derive nutrients for the entire body. More gut bacteria means a stronger immune system which means a greater ability to fight infection; more nutrients available for use as building blocks, to repair nutrients, etc. This results in increased potential benefits from stem cell therapy.
