Improving the intestinal flora
The body needs a healthy intestinal flora in order to:
- digest food
- ward off harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi
- ward off harmful heavy metals and other environmental toxins
- produce important vitamins
- support the immune system
- maintain normal peristalsis
The intestinal mucosa represents the most extensive surface area of the human body that is regularly exposed to environmental influences, including a very large quantity and ever-changing variety of harmful substances. If the mucosa is impaired, these harmful substances can enter the organism unchecked, and attack and damage the body.
An intact intestinal mucosa is therefore of the greatest importance to the organism as a whole.
