Your bacteria have to eat too. Prebiotics are the main source of food for beneficial bacteria.. These are food components that cannot be digested. They don't really help your body, but they do help you indirectly because they nourish your good bacteria. In this way they are strengthened, multiply and at the same time displace the harmful bacteria. By the way, they like it greasy and sweet. With meat, sugar, alcohol and fast food the small pests turn up fully. However, this will upset the balance of your intestinal flora and also promote intestinal cancer. For your diet this means: eat predominantly prebiotic foods such as fruit, vegetables and cereals, and then only the good ones will have a party, and the bad ones will sit in the corner, in a bad mood, but without doing any harm. A good, natural prebiotic is inulin, which is part of the best bowel cancer screening. It promotes digestion and the absorption of calcium and magnesium, so it also strengthens your bones and muscles. And And inulin keeps you slim because it regulates fat metabolism. You'll find a lot of it in artichokes, chicory, onions, garlic and parsnips..
Predominantly beneficial bacteria in the intestinal flora, that's one thing. The other is to colonize as many different bacteria as possible. You can do this in two ways: with probiotic foods and with probiotic supplements.Both contain living bacteria that produce lactic acid. In this way, the pH value in your intestine drops and everything becomes beautifully acidic. The more acid it is in the intestine, the better the useful bacteria can work. The harmful ones, on the other hand, don't like it at all. That's why they behave quietly, if they survive the acid at all. The industrious lactic acid bacteria also ensure that the intestinal mucosa remains nicely stable. So nothing comes in that shouldn't and nothing comes out that could damage your organs. This has a positive effect on your entire immune system.
Probiotic foods are fermented foods. This means that they have undergone a fermentation process in which the bacteria multiply and produce more and more lactic acid. These foods include natural yoghurt, sauerkraut, Kimchi, Kefir or buttermilk.. It is important that you do not buy homogenized foods, because they have been heated up a lot. Not only pests were killed, but also lactic acid bacteria. The healthy effect on the intestinal flora is now a thing of the past. Living bacteria can also be found in probiotics as food supplements.
There are different compositions, depending on what your intestine needs, for example many new bacteria after taking antibiotics or bacteria that help you lose weight. You can easily find out what your bowel needs with a self-test. The results will also give you recommendations for probiotics and your diet. So bowel cancer and other diseases don't stand a chance.
