Chronic stress sounds all too familiar in our daily lives. Whether it comes from taking care of your child’s daily needs or from the demands of your career, stress is almost inevitable. This leads to different kinds of emotional, mental, and physical effects that could build up and may go out of your control.
In fact, a new study shows how chronic stress can lead to gut dysfunctions in particular. Remember that the gut, also known as the gastrointestinal tract, runs from your mouth down to the anus; meaning, it affects all of your body. It is mainly responsible for the processing of your food. It chooses what to absorb and what to discharge from the body.
Researchers from Japan and Germany found that the healthy subjects [mice] under stress exhibited “micro-inflammation” at specific site centres of the brain and “the inflamed sites then released a small molecule [ATP] that switched on a nerve pathway that is normally turned off. This switch led to gut dysfunctions, bleeding and failure.”
People with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease are also known to exhibit micro-inflammation caused by accumulation and deposits of particular substances in the brain.
