Why is cleaning up your bowel important? Your intestines play a significant role in overall health.
Along with your lungs, skin, and kidneys, your bowels eliminate bodily toxins. At the same time, once the food you eat reaches your intestines, villi (small, fingerlike projections on intestinal walls) absorb nutrients and deliver them to the rest of your body.
Gut flora is important, too. Your intestines contain more than 100 trillion bacteria and microorganisms. The friendly bacteria in your gut stimulate blood antibodies, allow your body to deal with toxins and allergens, produce vital nutrients, protect you from harmful bacteria and parasites, aid in digestion, and fight foreign invaders that could lead to infection.
With all of that on its plate, plenty can go wrong in your bowels if you don’t look out for its health. When your bowel gets gunked up with toxins and goo, it is unable to foster efficient elimination. The result is toxic buildup that affects your health and beauty on all levels. If the villi also become clogged, it can lead to poor or absent nutrient absorption, resulting in a lack of energy and malnutrition, as well as skin issues like dull skin. In the absence of healthy gut flora, parasites and “bad” bacteria can flourish, leading to gas, bloating, and infection and skin issues like acne. Clearly, for all of these reasons, a healthy colon is necessary.
Steps to a Healthy Bowel
A healthy bowel = a healthy you! To generate vibrant, beautiful health, you need to pay attention to your bowel health on multiple levels.
This meal cleanses fecal fat in the intestines and thus reduces the excess weight and the bonus from this diet is that it regulates acidity in the stomach.
The main components of this “Vitamin salad“ (vegetables and dark leafy vegetables) will enrich the body with vitamins and minerals, with fiber and pectin.
Here’s what you need for this vitamin salad:
- dark leafy vegetable (Lettuce, Cruciferous Leafy Greens, Spinach and Swiss Chard, Edible Green Leaves)
- lime juice
Grate the cabbage, beet and carrot in the ratio of 3: 1: 1.
Add spicy herbs to your own taste (dill, parsley, celery). Mash the vegetables to release juice. Add a little lemon juice. If desired, you can add a clove of garlic.
Pour with very little olive or linseed oil.
- You shouldn’t put salt in your salad.
- If you do not have enough gastric acid inside your stomach you should not consume fermented cabbage.
This healthy meal contributes to effectively clean the intestines. Consequently, due to the discharge of fecal fat, the weight is reduced too.
But that‘s not all: because some of the ingredients of this salad are low-fat, the introduction of this meal (like dinner, for example), can also help to reduce the body fat.
