Another study showing just how dependant we are on those stomach bugs!
The researchers studied Of Mice and Men, I mean mice and humans. They intentionally put micro-parasite filled crap (shit, doo-doo, poo, feces, caca,) from exercised mice into the guts of sedentary parasite free mice. To their surprise the micro-parasites from exercised mice produced healthy butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid needed to regenerate your intestines!
They did something similar to humans, and low and behold the micro-parasites in humans who exercise produced the same necessary short-chain fatty acid!
