Grow daily! My intestinal flora 🌼

"Intestinal bacteria" that influence our intestinal environment.

It is said that over 100 trillion bacteria of more than 100 types live in the intestinal mucosa.

It is called "intestinal flora" because it looks like a flower garden.

Intestinal bacteria can be broadly classified into three groups based on their functions : “good bacteria”, “bad bacteria” and “opportunistic bacteria” .

✔ "Good bacteria" that have a positive effect on the human body

✔ "Bad bacteria" that cause constipation and diarrhea and produce harmful toxins

✔ "Opportunistic bacteria" that side with good bacteria or bad bacteria, whichever is more

The ideal balance of these is good bacteria: opportunistic bacteria: bad bacteria = 2:7:1 .

If there are more good bacteria than bad bacteria, opportunistic bacteria will be on your side and you will be able to maintain a healthy state.

Conversely, if this ratio is reversed, opportunistic bacteria become friends with bad bacteria,

The intestinal environment is easier to deteriorate at once.

Therefore, it is important to always maintain a state in which there are more good bacteria than bad bacteria.

How to keep good intestinal balance? ?

As the intestinal environment ages, the balance of intestinal bacteria becomes more likely to collapse.

In particular, daily meals have a great impact on the intestinal environment.

What we eat becomes food for intestinal bacteria,

By fermenting and decomposing, it turns into substances that are easily absorbed by the body.

Good bacteria love a balanced diet.

He especially loves dietary fiber, fermented foods, and oligosaccharides .

They decompose them to produce substances beneficial to the body, such as lactic acid, acetic acid, butyric acid, and B vitamins.

On the other hand, bad bacteria love high-calorie, high-fat foods .

It produces harmful substances such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide, and there is also a risk of creating substances that cause rough skin and cancer.

For this reason, diet is an important key to good or bad intestinal health.
