Here it pays off to listen to your body and to restore balance and healthy digestion on time.

Why is the gut so important?

The gut takes up a very important role in our body. With an amazing surface of 400 m2, which is about the size of a tennis court, the intestinal mucosa has a huge contact area to the outside world, basically to the food which we take, and which then passes our gut. Thereby the intestinal mucosa also makes contact with all kinds of allergens, foreign and toxic substances, which it should better not let through into our body. This is one of the most important tasks of our gut and is ensured through the three barriers gut flora, intestinal mucosa, and the immune cells in the mucosa. The number of immune cells in the gut is so large that it makes about 80% of our body’s entire immune system and herewith strongly contributes to our health. In case one of the barriers is malfunctioning or damaged, this can lead for example to allergies, autoimmune diseases, or inflammatory bowel diseases like Chron’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Stress, lack of sleep, food intolerances, but also intake of drugs can lead to digestive disorders, which again damage gut flora and intestinal mucosa. For this reason, it is so important that ailments like IBS, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation, glossy or unformed stool are taken seriously and reacted on in time.
