What the intestine needs for good health

We eat far too little fiber, that is, only about 13 g per day. Our Stone Age bodies and intestines need 50–100 g for good health.

The viability of microbes depends on the quality and number of fibers (about 10 different species). A healthy and powerful intestinal microbiota produces a number of important substances such as protective cells that maintain resistance and kill pathogens (8 different), and serotonin, which produces good mood in the brain.

Fiber also mainly determines how fast the critical intestinal flow is. When it slows down, the content of the bowel becomes toxic, which inflames and damages the intestinal wall, causing the so-called leaky gut syndrome.

Good sitting posture is essential to the flow-through, because then there is no pressure on the abdominal cavity, and the peristaltic motion of the diaphragm, muscles and bowel accelerate the flow of intestinal contents. The easiest way to get a good posture is by sitting on a high-quality, swinging, two-part saddle chair.

If the intestine is in a very good condition, thanks to versatile fibers, healthy and clean food, rest, exercise and avoiding intestinal contaminants (antibiotics, alcohol, many food chemicals and drugs, agrochemical residues, mobile phone radiation), taking supplementary lactic acid bacteria is not useful. When traveling, in a stressful situation, as a convalescent, and in special circumstances, they are most likely worth using.

It would be important to eat in peace, without drinking anything, chewing thoroughly, without work and stress discussions and to eat foods in their melting order, i.e. berries and fruits first, then starchy carbohydrates and lastly fats and proteins.

Salads should be eaten with both carbohydrates and proteins because unheated vegetables give us enzymes that help digest food.
