The intestinal flora determines which nutrients are absorbed and which toxins, allergens and germs are eliminated and therefore they are directly linked to the overall health of the human organism.

As a result, we can equate health with good digestion, as well as the absorption and the proper assimilation of nutrients. This, however, depends on many other factors.

There are more than 500 species and approximately 3 kilos of bacteria in the intestine, and it looks like a huge chemical plant. There is an important faction that deals with how to ‘digest’ food and separate vitamins and trace elements. It helps in regulating hormones, and, many times, it secretes toxins and produces therapeutic compounds that keep your intestine healthy. This agent is the probiotics – The protectors of the gland.

Pathogenic bacteria, such as parasites, yeast or bad bacteria, on the other hand, may cause serious damage to your health.

Many diseases that don’t appear to have any link to the intestine, such as eczema or psoriasis or arthritis, are actually diseases caused by bowel problems.


The stomach and the intestines can be characterized as a ‘second brain’.


There is an entire nervous system in the intestine, which actually contains more neurotransmitters than the brain to which is wired, and messages travel back and forth. When these messages change for certain reasons, in any direction, from the brain to the intestine or from the intestine to the brain, a person’s health is affected.

Then, of course, through the intestine, the body must release all the toxins produced as by-products of the metabolism and all the toxic waste that the liver produces in the process of hepatic metabolism.
