You probably have already heard about intermittent fasting, right? We have mentioned it a few times on our channel.
The fact is that intermittent fasting's power and the benefits of good gut bacteria are two of the biggest advances in health research in the past few years, did you know that?
Studies have proved that fasting is good for intestinal health.
Did you know that the intestine is where we have the highest concentration of bacteria in our bodies?
The bacteria that inhabit our intestines are called gut microbiota or gut flora.
These bacteria play a critical role in preserving the immune function of the mucosa. They also aid in mobility, nutrient absorption, and metabolization of complex carbs and proteins.
However, this bacterial concentration may be put at risk by qualitative and quantitative changes, harming metabolic activities.
This situation is called dysbiosis and can lead to inflammation and lesions in the mucosa tissue, causing even more health problems, like obesity, diabetes, cancer, dementia, and dermatitis.
It was noted that the composition of gut microbiota plays an important role in modulating the systemic inflammatory response.
Also, fasting and its effects on the gut microbiota were subjects to many studies.
Besides benefitting the intestinal microbiota and protecting the immune system, fasting improves mood, increases metabolism and insulin resistance, helps in fat loss, and aids in muscle construction, how amazing is that?
If you have ever fasted and benefitted from it, share your experience with us. If you have intestinal dysbiosis issues, talk to a doctor or nutritionist.
