DO THIS Every Day To Reduce Inflammation & STAY HEALTHY Until You're 105+ | Dr. Steven Gundry

Last updated: Jun 1, 2023

The video is about how the health of the gut lining and microbiome can affect aging and how to reduce inflammation to stay healthy.

The video features an interview with Dr. Steven Gundry, a renowned heart surgeon and researcher, who discusses the connection between gut health and aging. He explains that the lining of the gut is only one cell thick and is held together by tight junctions. When bacteria break down the gut wall, aging starts, and the more the wall breaks down, the faster one ages. Dr. Gundry believes that it is possible to de-age and reverse the effects of aging by taking care of the gut. He also talks about the myths of aging and how the gut is influential in aging.

  • The lining of the gut is only one cell thick and held together with tight junctions.
  • Bacteria in the gut can break down the gut wall, causing aging to start.
  • Damage to the gut lining can be caused by swallowing ibuprofen or consuming food with Roundup in it.
  • Dr. Gundry believes it's possible to de-age and age in reverse.
  • The gut is influential in aging because it affects the microbiome and gut wall.
  • Healthy 105 year olds have a diverse set of bugs in their gut.
  • Acromancia mucinophilia is a key bug for longevity.
  • Roundup destroys bacterial population in the gut.
  • Heart disease is an autoimmune disease that starts in the gut.

Defining Aging

  • Aging is the breakdown of the gut wall.
  • The breakdown of the gut wall can cause mobility issues, aesthetics problems, and accumulation of disease.
  • The gut wall breaking down can be caused by bacteria in the gut breaking holes in it.
  • The gut wall breaking down can also be caused by consuming food with Roundup in it.
  • Roundup can also destroy your bacterial population.

The Microbiome of Healthy 105 Year Olds

  • Healthy 105 year olds have a diverse set of bugs in their gut.
  • Their microbiome is identical to a healthy 30 year old.
  • Their microbiome is not attacking the wall of their gut.
  • Acromancia mucinophilia is a key bug for longevity.
  • Acromancia lives in the mucous layer of the gut.

The Importance of Acromancia Mucinophilia

  • Acromancia eats the mucus lining our gut.
  • The more mucus it eats, the more our gut cells produce mucus.
  • Thicker mucus makes us younger.
  • Metformin works by increasing the amount of acromancia in our gut.
  • Metformin changes the gut microbiome and can cause diarrhea.

The Shag Carpeting on the Lining of Our Gut

  • Our gut lining has a shag carpeting called microvilli.
  • Microvilli are one cell thick protrusions that loop around themselves.
  • At the bottom of microvilli are crips where bacteria are stored.
  • The appendix is a storage system to repopulate our gut.
  • Stem cells at the bottom of crips repopulate microvilli.

The Importance of Protecting the Lining of Our Gut

  • Swallowing ibuprofen or food with roundup can damage the lining of our gut.
  • The lining of our gut protects us from lectins and harmful bacteria.
  • Acromancia helps protect the lining of our gut.
  • The book has tricks to make acromancia happy and increase mucus production.
  • Increasing mucus production can make us younger.

Glyphosate and Gut Health

  • Roundup destroys bacterial population in the gut.
  • Glyphosate was originally patented as an antibiotic and is used to dry crops out.
  • Glyphosate is found in many food products, including oat products, breakfast cereals, granolas, granola bars, and California wines.
  • Glyphosate kills bacteria because it uses the same reproductive pathway that plants use.
  • Antibiotics in food and medicine can also kill bacteria and increase the risk of heart disease.

Heart Disease as an Autoimmune Disease

  • Cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, but rather an innocent bystander that gets sucked into inflammation at the wall of the blood vessel.
  • Cholesterol in deposits does not mean that cholesterol caused the plaque.
  • Heart disease is an autoimmune disease that starts in the gut.
  • Studies show that newborns who receive heart transplants develop coronary artery disease, which looks like diabetic coronary arteries.
  • Heart disease is caused by the immune system attacking the blood vessels.

Inflammation and Atherosclerosis

  • Inflammation is the body's response to foreign cells and objects, causing redness and swelling.
  • Cholesterol can get caught up in inflammation, leading to atherosclerosis.
  • Lectins, foreign proteins that stick to sugar molecules on blood vessels, are the cause of atherosclerosis in humans.
  • Removing lectins reduces markers for atherosclerosis.
  • Plants use lectins as a defense system to avoid being eaten.

Lectins and Joint Health

  • Lectins can break down the wall of the gut, allowing particles to enter the joint.
  • 65% of the immune system is lining the gut to attack foreign particles.
  • Fat is stored in the gut to supply the immune system with energy.
  • There is a correlation between the amount of fat surrounding blood vessels and the amount of inflammation and disease in the vessel.
  • Fat was previously thought to cause inflammation, but it is actually stored in areas of inflammation to supply energy to the immune system.

The Importance of Gut Health

  • The gut is where the outside world enters the body, and 65% of the immune system is lining the gut to attack foreign particles.
  • Leaky gut syndrome can occur when the gut lining is damaged, allowing foreign particles to enter the body.
  • Leaky gut syndrome can lead to autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation.
  • Probiotics and prebiotics can help improve gut health.
  • Avoiding lectins and other inflammatory foods can also improve gut health.

The Role of Fat and Inflammation

  • Fat is not inherently bad, but inflammation can cause fat buildup.
  • Inflammation is often caused by a leaky gut.
  • White blood cells need energy to function, and inflammation can provide that energy.
  • However, if someone has metabolic dysfunction, their body may not be able to access fat stores even if they have inflammation.
  • Lectins in food can disrupt the microbiome and gut lining, leading to inflammation.

The Immune System and Lectins

  • The immune system can identify lectins as foreign and potentially harmful.
  • Lectins can mimic other proteins in the body, leading the immune system to attack healthy tissue.
  • Eating lectins can break down the gut lining and disrupt the microbiome.
  • Dead bacteria can also cause inflammation and trigger the immune system.
  • The immune system may not be able to distinguish between living and dead bacteria, leading to septic shock.
