How to keep your intestine healthy

The intestine is 9 m long and 6 l in volume

Therefore it is clear that its content does not change in 24 to 30 hours, as it should in order to keep itself healthy and without inflammations, if we eat low-fiber food.

If the contents of the intestine are even a bit too old, it will soon become toxic, which will damage the intestinal epidermis that includes 200-500 million nerve cells, intestinal glands, and intestinal villi. Inflammation of the epidermis usually spreads to the brain along the circulatory nerve and is apparently the main contributor to memory disorders.

Exercise accelerates the flow through the intestine, but what does that even more is sitting in a good posture. That can be achieved on a swinging, two-part saddle chair and using clothes that do not press the belly (or any soft tissue) at all.

As the energy consumption of us office workers, and therefore the need for nutrition, is small it is important to choose mostly high-fiber foods such as soiled seeds, mixed with berries and fruit.

Fiber is also the only nutrition of the good colon bacteria, of which they make the feel-good hormone serotonin (it is also an intestinal neuronal neurotransmitter) and immune cells that patrol in the bloodstream and lymph nodes, killing alien viruses and bacteria, and destroying the body's own unhealthy cells (that might become cancer cells) .

If you eat a variety of vegetable fibers 50 g / 1000 kcal a day, avoid sugar and junk food, your bowels are in motion all day, you eat intestine-healthy Omega3 1-2 g / day and the 100-125 mcg of vitamin D recommended by researchers (not by national health politicians) you can probably enjoy a healthy life for a long time without any bowel diseases.
