It has long been known that the intestine is called the "second brain" due to the importance of the axis between the brain and the intestine itself.
This is why an intestinal imbalance affects mood and psyche.
The intestine contains millions of neuronal cells and fibers that make up a real autonomic nervous system. Regardless of the central nervous system, it promotes intestinal contraction and secretes digestive enzymes.
Together with the central nervous system, it integrates and processes stimuli both from the inside and from the outside through an exchange of information mediated by the PNEI (psycho-neuro-endocrine-immune) system.
The PNEI system is the basis of the body's communication and is composed of the central nervous system which communicates through the release of neurotransmitters, the endocrine system which releases messages to the body through hormones and the immune system.
Thanks to this system, the two brains are influenced by each other and for this reason mental stress and negative thoughts activate the circuits of anxiety and fear, causing increased intestinal motility, the release of cytokines increases sensitivity and inflammation of the intestinal mucosa. .
It is essential to seek a balance of this part of our body to regain serenity.
Acting on the intestinal bacterial flora is essential, feeding it with probiotics such as Saccharomyces boulardii , Lactobacillus plantarum and Bifidobaterium animalis and prebiotics such as FOS and inulin to favor the elimination of "bad" and pathogenic microorganisms. The rebalancing of the intestinal bacterial flora also has a positive effect on the immune system, increasing the defenses against pathogens.
An intestinal cleansing helps detoxify the body and improves liver and digestive functions, eliminating all the consequent annoyances such as headaches, anxiety, poor concentration, food intolerances and poor digestion. A deep cleansing can be obtained thanks to remedies containing purifying plants such as artichoke, milk thistle and goldenrod contained for example in the Depur complex .
The set of digestive enzymes such as amylase, glucoamylase, protease, lipase, cellulase, lactase and pectinase help digest carbohydrates, proteins, fats, useful in case of food intolerances, abdominal bloating and constipation. The enzymes associated with digestive plants such as Ginger, Boldo and Gentian are found within Zenzimix .
In case of strong constipation and intestinal irregularity it is possible to go to act with a thickening substance such as the carrighenan seaweed , which thanks to the presence of starchy substances forms a gelatinous and dense mass that allows the elimination of impurities in the gastrointestinal level.
