Your gut houses bacteria that plays an important role in your digestion, immune system, and even emotional wellbeing. But have you ever taken the time to really get to know the stomach bacteria your health depends upon? No? Well, then it’s high time for a formal introduction to your gut flora.

1. Lactobacillus rhamnosus

Have you been introduced to Lactobacillus rhamnosus before? If you haven’t, it’s such a shame! We think you’ll really like this non-spore-forming rod that sometimes comes in chains. We can just see you two spending time together in Aspen, and it’s not just because this bacteria lives inside of you, and therefore goes wherever you do.

2. Bacillus subtilis

Bacillus subtilis is a hard bacteria to get to know, as it can be shy around new people. We’ve been familiar with Bacillus subtilis for years, so we’d love to foster an introduction between you two. Bacillus subtilis can prevent the growth of the mummy berry fungus, and has a yearly pass to The Met. Why don’t you two get to talking?

3. Bacteroides fragilis

It’s been so long since we’ve seen you, Bacteroides fragilis! How have you been? We think the last time we saw you, you mentioned you got into the bloodstream and caused an infection. Is that still going on? Sorry, where are our manners. The reader of this article is dying to meet you. You two are both quite the gourmands.

4. Bifidobacterium longum

We’ve seen this bacteria around our gastrointestinal tract for quite some time, but we’ve actually never had the pleasure of meeting it either. Now is as good a time as any to formally introduce ourselves. Excuse us, Mr. Longum? It’s such a pleasure to meet you. That’s one strong grip you’ve got there!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this very formal introduction to your gut flora. Might we suggest sending a thank you note within the next three days?
