The gastrointestinal tract has to accomplish a great deal: It breaks down food consumed, extracts the nutrients and provides the body with them. Furthermore, 70–80 percent of our imune cells are located there – it's hardly surprising that a sick intestine can affect the whole body. Billions of cells filter out vital nutrients for us. They are supported by countless tiny helpers such as lactic acid bacteria, coliform bacteria and enterococci which are also known together as symbionts of the intestine. An unbalanced diet, constant stress and antibiotics can negatively impact the intestinal flora. Plenty of fluids, a balanced diet and emotional balance are important for efficient and healthy functioning of the intestine, stomach and liver and a healthy appetite. Read here how you can positively support your intestinal function.
