Instead of medicine, why I suggest all friends to worship Surya and Hanuman! 🙂 It is the need of the hour as our Prana is being consumed daily rapidly by toxic environment, physical and mental.
So many dots can be connected by reading this research paper.
This is wonderful morning as I read this research. One more confirmation proof for my theory that it is प्राणमय कोष that actually influences body and not the genes!!
Entire Genome project is pseudo-science of last century! And so GMO crops! Yes, this is tall claim and against the waves but it is the reality! 🙂
प्राणमय कोष is our immunity. It is our cellular intelligence. It is the one that manifests and govern cell-formation. It is the one that manifests cells with individual identity i.e. microbes rather than collective identity i.e. Body organ cell like skill cell, liver cell or neuron.
It is not just me! I know couple of researchers confirming the same fact and working hard to find more and more epigenetic links!
Our food, our thoughts – all influence our well-being. Genes are actually controlled by them!!
It is not genes, it is epigenetic!
In our guts, and in the guts of all animals, resides a robust ecosystem of microbes known as the microbiome. Consisting of trillions of organisms — bacteria, fungi and viruses — the microbiome is essential for host health, providing important services ranging from nutrient processing to immune system development and maintenance.
Now, in a study comparing mice raised in a “germ free” environment and mice raised under more typical lab conditions, scientists have identified yet another key role of the microbes that live within us: mediator of host gene expression through the epigenome, the chemical information that regulates which genes in cells are active.
Writing online Nov. 23 in the journal Molecular Cell, a team of researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Madison describes new research helping tease out the mechanics of how the gut microbiome communicates with the cells of its host to switch genes on and off. The upshot of the study, another indictment of the so-called Western diet (high in saturated fats, sugar and red meat), reveals how the metabolites produced by the bacteria in the stomach chemically communicate with cells, including cells far beyond the colon, to dictate gene expression and health in its host.
Diet-Microbiota Interactions Mediate Global Epigenetic Programming in Multiple Host Tissues
- •Gut microbiota alter host histone acetylation and methylation in multiple tissues
- •Western diet suppresses microbiota-driven SCFA production and chromatin effects
- •SCFAs recapitulate microbiota-driven chromatin and transcriptional effects
Histone-modifying enzymes regulate transcription and are sensitive to availability of endogenous small-molecule metabolites, allowing chromatin to respond to changes in environment. The gut microbiota produces a myriad of metabolites that affect host physiology and susceptibility to disease; however, the underlying molecular events remain largely unknown. Here we demonstrate that microbial colonization regulates global histone acetylation and methylation in multiple host tissues in a diet-dependent manner: consumption of a “Western-type” diet prevents many of the microbiota-dependent chromatin changes that occur in a polysaccharide-rich diet. Finally, we demonstrate that supplementation of germ-free mice with short-chain fatty acids, major products of gut bacterial fermentation, is sufficient to recapitulate chromatin modification states and transcriptional responses associated with colonization. These findings have profound implications for understanding the complex functional interactions between diet, gut microbiota, and host health.
