There are droughts in the southwest and sandstorms in the north and south. Frequent natural disasters have sounded the alarm for mankind time and time again. And our own body? Staying up late, sitting for long periods of time, exercising less, and having irregular schedules have caused a modern disease of the intestinal tract—premature intestinal aging, which scientists vividly call "intestinal desertification." The Arbor Day just past is still in our minds. Have you realized that your intestines also need to be "greened"?
3 deadly sins
Modern people breathe dirty air every day, food contains pesticide residues, chemical additives, etc., coupled with fast-paced life, high work pressure, which causes intestinal dysfunction, the proliferation of harmful bacteria, leading to constipation and diarrhea. These are all manifestations of "intestinal desertification".
Crime 1: Violation of the intestinal mucosa
"Intestinal desertification" can cause pathogenic bacteria to invade the intestinal mucosa, cause intestinal diseases, weaken intestinal smooth muscle elasticity, loss of natural defecation ability, and directly lead to a series of intestinal diseases, such as constipation, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and intestinal organs Qualitative lesions. Such as intestinal polyps, colitis, hemorrhoids, etc.
Crime 2: accumulation of toxins
"Intestinal desertification" causes toxins to accumulate in the body, and at the same time, the intestinal detoxification and immune barrier function are seriously insufficient, and the toxins cannot be discharged in time. Various metabolic wastes, toxins and pathogenic bacteria are like burst floods, rushing into the blood and reaching through the blood The accumulation of organ tubes in the heart, liver, and kidneys increases the absorption of toxins, causing and inducing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, such as hypertension, cerebral apoplexy, and coronary heart disease.
Crime 3: blocking nutrition
"Intestinal desertification" will also cut off the source of nutrients, reducing the absorption of intestinal nutrients by more than 50%, directly causing the lack of nutrients in the body's tissues, bones, and brain, leading to accelerated aging of the human body.
"Planting afforestation" for the stomach and intestines
How can we "green" the stomach and intestines and eliminate the danger of "desertification"? It is necessary to "plant trees and reforestation", use fresh vegetables, refreshing fruits to nourish the stomach and intestines, and supplement probiotic foods.
Speaking of probiotics, some people will immediately think of yogurt. Yes, the probiotic Bifidobacterium in yogurt can accelerate gastrointestinal peristalsis after entering the human body, which can help regulate the balance of intestinal flora, eliminate spoilage bacteria, and prevent toxins. , Remove the garbage in the body. If the human body wants to rebuild the "oasis" and make life prosperous, it must adjust the balance of the flora, supplement the beneficial bacteria (such as bifidobacteria), combine with the intestinal mucosa to form a bacterial membrane barrier, prevent pathogenic bacteria from invading the intestines, repair and maintain The damaged intestinal mucosa prevents the expansion of the intestinal "desertification" and constitutes the "first line of defense" to protect the body from diseases.
In terms of diet, it should be a combination of thickness, meat and vegetables, especially whole grains, potatoes, beans, vegetables, fruits and other foods rich in dietary fiber. Fresh fruits and vegetables are rich in cellulose and are the "scavengers" of the human body, which can help eliminate toxins in the body. Among the vegetables, the fiber-rich leeks, celery, pumpkin, spinach, lettuce, Chinese cabbage, lotus root, bamboo shoots, cucumber, white radish, etc. are all good "intestines"; among the fruits, apples, pears, and fresh Jujube and pineapple are good helpers to promote intestinal peristalsis. Combining these fruits and vegetables into your daily diet will not only help maintain the health of your intestines, but also help ensure a balanced diet.
At the same time, it is very important to live a regular life. Do daily life, eat well, follow the natural laws of the biological clock, work appropriately, and do what you can. Sedentary people should stand up and move around every 1 to 2 hours. Experts believe that 30 minutes of simple exercise every day can be adhered to. As long as you take out 15 minutes of simple exercise after lunch and 15 minutes after dinner, it will have a good effect on maintaining intestinal health and regulating the overall state. Learning simple yoga or abdominal breathing exercises can achieve the effect of promoting bowel movement. During abdominal breathing exercises, by pressing the abdomen together, you can massage the internal organs, enhance the gastrointestinal motility, and avoid indigestion and constipation. Abdominal breathing can promote intestinal motility and accelerate the discharge of toxins. The most effective "laxative".
