The current poor diet structure and lifestyle are destroying the micro-ecology in the intestine, leading to dysbacteriosis in the gut tract and producing gut toxins. These toxins can not only destroy the gut mucosa itself, but also increase the burden of liver detoxification and also enter the gut mucosa. Blood stimulates body tissues and skin, causing skin acne and sores, fatigue, weakness, immunity, chronic inflammation and metabolic diseases. Therefore, it is especially important to restore gut health to gut flora.
Top ten standards for healthy gut specification
Standard 1: Balanced healthy gut flora, only beneficial bacteria and neutral bacteria, no harmful bacteria
Standard 2: Healthy gut probiotics can break down lactose into lactic acid without lactose intolerance
Standard 3: Healthy gut tract can synthesize short-chain fatty acids and promote secondary absorption of minerals
Standard 4: Healthy gut probiotics can break down proteins in food residues and prevent protein spoilage toxins
Standard 5: Healthy intestines should have good peristalsis and promote food residue discharge
Standard 6: Healthy gut probiotics can eliminate chemical liver damage
Standard 7: Healthy gut tract can improve the immunity of mucosal tissues and skin
Standard 8: Healthy gut probiotics can synthesize group B vitamins
Standard 9: Healthy gut probiotics can regulate postprandial blood glucose and avoid high blood sugar after meals
Standard 10: Healthy gut tract can reduce fat absorption and promote fat metabolism
Unhealthy performance of the gut
1. Discomfort in the stomach
Stomach upsets, such as gas, bloating, diarrhea, and heartburn, can be signs of unhealthy bowel.
2. High sugar diet
Diets rich in processed foods and sugars can reduce the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut. This imbalance increases the craving for sugar and further damages your bowel. Inflammation can be a precursor to many diseases and even cancer.
3. Unexpected weight changes
Adding or losing weight without changing your diet or exercise habits may be a sign of unhealthy bowel. Intestinal imbalance can impair the body's ability to absorb nutrients, regulate blood sugar and store fat. Weight loss may be due to intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), which may be due to insulin resistance or an overeergic impulse due to reduced nutrient absorption.
4. Sleep disorder or persistent fatigue
Unhealthy bowels can cause sleep disorders such as insomnia or lack of sleep, leading to chronic fatigue. Some sleep disorders are also associated with the risk of fibromyalgia.
5. Skin irritation
Skin conditions such as skin eczema may be associated with intestinal damage. Intestinal inflammation caused by poor diet or food allergies may increase the likelihood that certain proteins will “leak” into the body, which may irritate the skin and cause eczema.
6. Autoimmune diseases
Medical researchers are constantly discovering credible sources of new evidence for the effects of the intestinal immune system. It is believed that an unhealthy bowel may increase systemic inflammation and alter the normal function of the immune system. This can lead to autoimmune diseases, and the body will attack itself rather than harmful invaders.
7. Food intolerance
Food intolerance is the result of difficult digestion of certain foods (this is different from food allergies, which are caused by immune system reactions to certain foods). It is believed that food intolerance may be caused by poor quality of intestinal bacteria. This can make it difficult to digest triggering food and discomfort symptoms such as bloating, diarrhea, diarrhea, abdominal pain and nausea. There is evidence that food allergies may also be associated with intestinal health.
Diet is closely related to intestinal health. Avoiding processed foods, high-fat foods, and foods with high levels of refined sugar are extremely important for maintaining a healthy microbiome because they destroy good bacteria and promote the growth of harmful bacteria. You can also eat a lot of foods, such as high-fiber foods, beans, fermented foods, etc., which actively promote the growth of beneficial bacteria and contribute to your overall health.
