Having a healthy and balanced intestinal flora is essential for good health. Let's see how to restore it naturally with grandmother's remedies.

A healthy intestinal flora is essential for the well-being of the whole organism. And this is because it ensures the correct absorption of vitamins and other nutrients. In fact, a damaged bacterial flora causes a drop in immune and energy resources.
Conversely, when healthy, the flora is rich in good intestinal bacteria that kill off the bad ones, thus preventing infections.
In order for everything to work, however, it is important to develop some precautions. The intestinal glora is in fact extremely delicate and can be damaged by an incorrect diet, as well as by the use of some drugs, such as antibiotics. Fortunately, to restore it, it is possible to resort to lactic ferment supplements , or to the natural remedies that our grandmothers used. Let's see which are the most effective.

Intestinal flora: what is good for you and what is best avoided

To restore the intestinal bacterial flora, it is first of all necessary to eliminate all foods that damage it, i.e. acidic ones, such as sugars, fatty and fried foods, refined carbohydrates and all processed and preserved foods.

At the same time, it is important to avoid the use of antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. In any case, it is good practice to take them only when prescribed by your doctor and for rather short periods of time. To all this is added the need to acquire a healthy and relaxing lifestyle. Bad habits (such as smoking and alcohol) and stress are in fact capable of jeopardizing the good health of the intestinal flora.

Now let's go to the remedies that have always been considered friends of the intestine. To start there are foods that contain live lactic ferments, which rebalance the bacterial flora. These are all fermented foods , such as kefir (both cow's or vegetable milk, and water), cottage cheese, sauerkraut, miso, tempeh, tofu and yogurt (preferably the Greek, white and sugar-free).

Other useful foods for the well-being of the intestinal flora are vegetables, almonds, apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, fish oil, flax seeds and the oil obtained from them. Then follow the lean proteins and fruit rich in fiber, such as kiwis or apples. Finally, herbal teas made with fresh ginger and green tea are excellent, as they help eliminate toxins and soothe the intestines.

Putting all these elements together is the best way to be able to enjoy a healthy bacterial flora capable of giving a better quality of life, without a doubt.
