Gut bacteria spotted eating brain chemicals for the first time

Got GABA?

By Andy Coghlan

Bacteria have been discovered in our guts that depend on one of our brain chemicals for survival. These bacteria consume GABA, a molecule crucial for calming the brain, and the fact that they gobble it up could help explain why the gut microbiome seems to affect mood.

Philip Strandwitz and his colleagues at Northeastern University in Boston discovered that they could only grow a species of recently discovered gut bacteria, called KLE1738, if they provide it with GABA molecules. “Nothing made it grow, except GABA,” Strandwitz said while announcing his findings at the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in Boston last month.

GABA acts by inhibiting signals from nerve cells, calming down the activity of the brain, so it’s surprising to learn that a gut bacterium needs it to grow and reproduce. Having abnormally low levels of GABA is linked to depression and mood disorders, and this finding adds to growing evidence that our gut bacteria may affect our brains.

 

 
 

 

Treating depression

An experiment in 2011 showed that a different type of gut bacteria, called Lactobacillus rhamnosus, can dramatically alter GABA activity in the brains of mice, as well as influencing how they respond to stress. In this study, the researchers found that this effect vanished when they surgically removed the vagus nerve – which links the gut to the brain – suggesting it somehow plays a role in the influence gut bacteria can have on the brain.

Strandwitz is now looking for other gut bacteria that consume or even produce GABA, and he plans to test their effect on the brains and behaviour of animals. Such work may eventually lead to new treatments for mood disorders like depression or anxiety.

“Although research on microbial communities related to psychiatric disorders may never lead to a cure, it could have astonishing relevance to improving patients’ quality of life,” said Domenico Simone of George Washington University in Ashburn, Virginia.

good question , don't know , we'll have to see what the doc finds 

there is lots we don't know about these lill buggers

 

microorganisms out weight human cells 10 to 1 & allot are the same organisms in our soils

a plant has a gut just like a human , just there's are external & our's , internal of the body

You cant have a guess ?

 

Like I am........ of a magical plant that currently is doing wonderful things.... lol....:) maybe its rich in gaba....rich in everything else

interesting post

I am a botanist and have studied seed dispersal through animals guts ....I guarantee our guts love hemp seed...

and originally formed or benefitted from it at some time......

that missing link of fibre?

I know prior too the 1930's when animals ...cows,...goats ...chickens etc used to be fed and forrage on hemp seed and fibre vegetation .......amazing how when somethings removed from the chain it has an enormous impact ...trickle effect .......cancer rates rose after 1930 when hemp seed was removed from diets ....and the introduction of antibiotics

Ahhh now i see where you going , of cause 

 

Don't forget the Green Revolution was also in there somewhere 

funny , Not , how autism rates start to rise around the same time &

really take off with the introduction of glyphosate / round up 

 

have you seen the youtube vid on how todays medicine started 

if you've got 45min check this out , Rockefeller Medicine https://youtu.be/X6J_7PvWoMw

 

seed dispersal through animals guts , interesting stuff mate what was the purpose of the study

The Cassowary and its decline in Qld have had an impact of the rainforest

Their most significant contribution to the ecology of the forest is as a disperser of rainforest fruits. Cassowaries eat up to 150 different fruit species; it is estimated that 70 to 100 plant species depend almost entirely on the cassowary for seed dispersal.

because of there beaks and gut 


and many other species are linked to form a chain ...one cannot exist without the other

And our most likely link is the 5 grains ...rice ...wheat ...soya...cannabis..hemp etc possibly original sources of gaba?

 

seeds are amazing things

  There you go found it SOY ..cheeses etc.......one of the five grains ...guarantee along with the other seeds  and vegetation fed to cows the dairy would be of exceptional quality lol  ;0 feed them bales of cannibas instead of hay once a week What Products Contain Lactobacillus rhamnosus ?

Some strains of this species are marketed as probiotics and/or used in dairy products such as yogurt, cheese and fermented milks. Some strains are used in fermented meat products, fermented dry sausages, and fermented soy cheeses (particularly in southeast Asia). This species also has many industrial uses. One of those uses is to transform the waste from bioethanol production into animal feed.

Since L. rhamnosus strains are naturally found in foods, consumption of those foods would give you some benefit. For instance, a study on Parmigiano Reggiano cheese showed that it can have up to 10 million CFU of viable lactic acid bacteria per gram of product when you eat it. What a delicious way to get beneficial bacteria!

And although the strains of L. rhamnosus may vary from cheese producer to cheese producer, the fact that some obscure, currently undocumented strains have acid- and bile tolerance in lab tests means that someday those obscure strains could be classified as probiotics.

And you could be obtaining those obscure strains today just by eating natural, chunk Parmigiano Reggiano cheese! Of course, you can find food products fortified with L. rhamnosus strains and supplements with L. rhamnosus in them, too.

 

Many strains of Lactobacillus rhamnosus have been researched, and some of them are radically different than the type strain. So although all L. rhamnosus strains have many things in common, some of them are different enough to have different effects in your body. If you desire a particular effect, be certain to get the correct strain. Some of the most researched strains are listed below:

the soil food web 

 

​unfortunately 2 out of those 5 are some of the biggest GMO crops the world grows = wheat & soy 

 

you done some cool stuff there mate
