Gut may be involved in Covid 19
There is mounting evidence suggesting that our gut microbiome is involved in the Covid 19 disease, according to a January 04 2021 report released publicly in the BMJ's (British Medical Association journal) Gut, based on research by the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The study samples and records of 100 patients infected with SARS-CoV-2. The study found that the microbiome composition was significantly altered in patients with COVID-19 compared with non-COVID-19 individuals, according to BMJ. Researchers found that covid 19 patients had a significant deficiency of Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, Eubacterium rectale and bifidobacteria. These gut bacteria species are known to keep our gut health in balance. Its deficiency results in dybiosis.

Moreover, these patients also experienced unusually high concentrations of cytokines and other inflammatory markers accepted by the medical community. Covid patients continue to experience dysbiosis long after their recovery.
