Nowhere else in the body does such intensive contact with foreign substances take place as in the bowels. This is where healthy nutrition ends up as well as all the artificial colourings, emulsifiers and preservatives. This is why our bowels require an extremely effective protective barrier in the form of healthy bacteria, so that everything which could harm us does not penetrate the intestinal wall and enter the bloodstream.
Health begins in the bowels
This recognition is as old as medicine itself. In the 4000 year old writings of Ayurvedic healers, the bowels were already described as the centre of well-being. And this insight is confirmed by modern science. We only feel truly well when our digestion functions properly. Because the bowels with their billions of microorganisms control the majority of metabolic processes in our body. They produce essential vitamins, enzymes and amino acids and they neutralise everything which is harmful which enters our body through food.
