The consequences of a deficient digestive sphere

The place of the intestine is crucial in the functioning of our organism and its role is multiple. On the one hand, it is responsible for the absorption of all the nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of our cells. On the other hand, it has an immune role that allows the intestine to prohibit access to pathogenic bacteria, viruses, but also macromolecules derived primarily from food. In nutritherapy, when a person suffers from one or more disorders, one seeks before all the cause before putting a medication in place. We must therefore ensure the proper functioning of the intestine by implementing a first-line approach.

Guarantee the quality of the intestinal flora

In this respect, it is essential to guarantee the quality of the intestinal flora. The billions of bacteria that inhabit us live thanks to us, but we also live thanks to them! These bacteria play a significant role in the proper functioning of the immune system. They are able to keep potentially pathogenic elements away, to make antibiotics to prevent infections, to balance our transit, to optimize digestion and absorption of micronutrients. It is then necessary to ensure the good permeability of the intestinal mucosa.

What is intestinal permeability?

Intestinal permeability is guaranteed by a single layer of cells called enterocytes. These enterocytes are very tight and allow selective permeability. Only "authorized" elements (vitamins, minerals, amino acids of small size) are allowed to pass according to established biochemical protocols. Unfortunately, some factors related to our lifestyle deteriorate this permeability: stress, taking medication, chronic alcohol consumption, intense sports, infections, food intolerances, age, etc. All of these factors help break the cement between the enterocytes, making the intestine porous. Immunity as a whole is then disrupted. The body is thus more easily infected with bacteria or viruses. Large, undigested molecules pass the intestinal barrier, overloading liver activity. Low noise intoxication sets in. The consequences are numerous. Not to mention pathologies, many disorders appear: chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, tendinitis, cramps, myalgia, functional colopathies, sleep disorders ... If the patient suffers from several disorders at once, it is not reasonable to give a medicine for each symptom. It is more relevant to research the causes and one of the causes may be the disruption of intestinal integrity. There are simple solutions that, when put in place as first-line, can save a lot of time in resolving disorders.

How to improve intestinal flora?

Two things should be done simultaneously for a period of 1 to 3 months depending on the magnitude of the symptoms: provide supplementation probiotics from qualitative strains and a daily intake of 3 g of glutamine. Probiotics will allow the reconstitution of a balanced flora. Glutamine will provide sufficient energy for the renewal of enterocytes and allow the reconstitution of tight junctions ensuring good intestinal permeability. Thus, many genes will disappear on their own. It will then be enough to use a lighter maintenance treatment with 3 g of glutamine once or twice a week, and to be satisfied with 3 to 4 courses of probiotics a year.
