Spring fever for the body and intestines
Be honest now: Which of your new year resolutions are you still sticking to right now? Maybe the sweet treats during carnival season were too tempting – or maybe you couldn’t anchor your new healthy and active lifestyle into your everyday life? Use the vigour of spring to put your plans into action and beam on the inside with nature!
Spring cleaning from within
To start spring off right, it is important to support the body in breaking down all the metabolic residues that accumulated over winter through a lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet: Old food rests disturb digestion in the intestines, you feel weak and fatigued, the skin is blemished and dull. This is why you should activate your metabolism and your body’s own detoxifying powers!
The first step in cleaning your intestines is removing remaining food rests out of your overburdened intestines. The perfect tool for this is MikroSan, an elixir for cleaning your intestines with 24 different herbs and plant extracts, as well as 31 active microorganisms: These release important bioflavonoids from the plants and make them available to the organism. However, “deacidifying” is just as essential as “detoxifying” the organism – especially when our modern eating habits with plenty of meat, sugar and coffee, and our stressful lifestyle bring our acid-base-balance out of syn.
Metacare® BASiC 3 combines the alkaline powers of potassium, calcium and magnesium together with Origanox, a high-quality antioxidant from wild marjoram, fennel, rosemary, sage and thyme. To round of the spring cleaning, you should also ingest important intestinal bacteria that replenish and augment the natural microbiome after the winter exertions (stress, unhealthy eating and drugs such as antibiotics): OMNi-BiOTiC® 6 contains six major bacterial strains that inhabit the intestines from top to bottom. This is the blueprint for the perfect start to spring!
Achieving your dream figure with your intestines
Once the favourite jeans are a little tighter after the winter season, many declare war by strictly counting calories and starting a rigorous training routine – yet to no success. Does this sound familiar? Maybe your intestinal flora is to blame. There are actually so-called “fattening bacteria”, scientifically known as “Firmicutes”, that throw off all calorie tables. From an evolutionary perspective, the existence of these bacteria – more specifically, Clostridia that aggressively break down fibre – makes sense: These primordial bacteria have saved us from starvation during tough winters and times of need over thousands of years.
They can extract a considerable number of calories from fibres that are indigestible to us humans: The body gains extra energy from every leaf of salad, unbeknownst to us… What kept us alive thousands of years ago is a real curse in the modern day with our surplus of food!
There are, however, Bacteroidetes-bacteria that help towards your dream figure: These “slimmers” encapsulate the sugar that isn’t needed as energy and transports it with the stool out of the body. If you’re lucky or have good genes, then both of these groups of bacteria form a balanced relationship in your intestines. Nevertheless, no amount of dieting can help if you have an excess of fibre-splitting clostridia.
However, you don’t have to just accept this said “imbalance” in the intestines. Clinical studies have clearly shown that “fattening bacteria” can also be ousted – with enough exercise, a healthy diet and the intake of the right bacterial strains: Intestinal experts were able to combine bacterial strains in OMNi-BiOTiC® metabolic that oust the unwanted “fattening” clostridia from the intestines. So that these sugar-cutting slimming Bacteroidetes feel at home in your intestines and multiply sustainably, feed them their favourite food found in OMNi-LOGiC® APPLE PECTIN. Convert your intestines into an ally on your journey to your dream figure!
Taking care of your intestinal flora
The journey towards your dream figure and its maintenance requires, among others, a change in diet. At the same time, the intestinal flora, that often suffered from a fatty and sugar-rich diet for many years, needs special care. This is why the targeted intake of high-quality fibres is so important. It forms a large part of the diet of the helpful, oxygen-sensitive intestinal bacteria.
Furthermore, fibres regulate the transport of food through the intestines, a process which often becomes derailed during a change in diet: Fibres increase the stool volume during constipation and accelerates its transport through the intestines. With diarrhoea, fibres extract excess water and thicken the stool. Help yourself to OMNi-LOGiC® FIBRE* with two scientifically proven and optimally compatible fibre sources (resistant corn dextrin and guar gum) for the care of your intestines: Just mix it into some water, yoghurt or any other liquid once a day.
