Your Gut Can Help Fight Depression and High Blood Pressure

Trillions of bacteria live in your gut, influencing your body’s homeostasis daily.

The bacterial-human cell ratio is estimated to be around 10:1! That means for every human cell in your body, there are roughly 10 bacterial cells. So who’s living whom? Who’s in charge? It’s certainly not the human “you”, because you only have one eleventh of the numbers (although human cells are far larger and heavier).
