Gut good, all good! Top 5 tips for a healthy bowel
There are countless different strains of bacteria in one intestine. These bacteria play an important role in our health and immune system. We give you the best tips for a species-rich microbiome and a healthy intestine.
Tip 1: Avoid stress
Persistent and above all negative stress has an extremely harmful effect on your intestines. The reason for this is that our brain is very closely connected to the digestive tract. There are more than 100 million different nerve cells and many hormones in our intestines. Anyone who feels stress also quickly feels the effects of the intestines. It can lead to diarrhea, indigestion, flatulence or constipation. Those who avoid stress also ensure a healthy intestinal flora at the same time!
Tip 2: Exercise
When it comes to the health of our intestines, sufficient exercise also plays an important role. Those who exercise enough also boost their metabolism at the same time. Endurance sports such as walking, cycling, jogging or swimming are particularly suitable for this. If you have never exercised, just contact me and get a free initial consultation.
Tip 3: It all depends on the right diet!
Diet, the foods we eat, play a particularly important role. Sufficient fresh fruit and vegetables should be consumed for a healthy intestine. Because they contain plenty of phytochemicals. These not only have a positive effect on a healthy intestine, they also help prevent bowel cancer. Plant substances are found in Brussels sprouts, onions, tomatoes, legumes and citrus fruits.
Furthermore, you should make sure that you consume sufficient fiber. The dietary fiber is of great importance and ensures a good balance of bacteria. The volume of stool is increased by the ingested fiber. High-fiber foods include whole grains, psyllium and flaxseed.
If you want a healthy intestine, you should also make sure that you consume enough unsaturated fatty acids. These also protect against colon cancer. Unsaturated fatty acids are mainly found in olive oil.
When it comes to nutrition, it is also important that both sausage and meat are only consumed in small quantities. Animal fats, for example, contain a lot of fat, which causes unfavorable fatty acids to get into our intestines.
Tip 4: Micronutrients
Micronutrients have a positive effect on all different cells. Lacto- and bifidobacteria cultures
Darm Formula Plus with extracts from black cumin seeds & turmeric, inulin from chicory root and selected B vitamins as a combination preparation is ideal for supporting intestinal health.
When it comes to stress, micronutrients can also help. Combination products made from lacto- and bifdobacteria, saffron extract and vitamins are used for relaxation and mental balance.
Micronutrients can also be used to increase the amount of fiber. These products are high in soluble vegetable fiber.
When it comes to strengthening the intestinal wall barrier and supporting detoxification, the following micronutrient combination can be taken.
Tip 5: Drink enough fluids
Healthy drinking is also very important for the health of our intestines. It is recommended that you drink 2 to 3 liters of fluids a day. This means that dissolved toxins can be transported out of our body more quickly and more easily. However, not all liquids are the same, so here too you should pay attention to what exactly you are drinking. Of course, water is best here. It is also advisable to completely avoid black tea and coffee. Alcohol should also be avoided completely. In addition, sugary drinks have a negative effect on our intestines. It is best to use either herbal teas and still water.
