Further Expert-Advice for the Intestine
Bowel care requires dietary fibres. 30 g a day is recommended; most people consume just 20 g. and yet fibres from vegetables, fruit, legumes and dried fruit, whole grain, linseed, bran, and nuts are very essential, as they accelerate the intestinal passage and are fodder for the “good” intestinal bacteria. •
Omega-3 fatty acids, contained in high-fat saltwater fish, avocado, and linseed oil, improve the microbiome and arrest inflammations. Fresh herbs and spices such as caraway seed, fennel or coriander act anticonvulsive and digestive.
Make sure to chew all meals slowly and thoroughly. By doing so, less air is swallowed and there are less putrefactive substances. Besides, the bowel needs less energy for digestion.
