"It's amazing how it works!" says always my daughter's teacher. "How is it that food can change her behavior, concentration, confidentiality on the exams." She sees it in her behavior , I see additional change in the appearance of her skin after a week eating the food from the school.
Surely,we all know that processed, heated food is not the appropriate form of a balanced diet for a growing body. The brain itself is discovering a new world every day must be properly fed .And here is food deprived of essential vitamins and minerals that the body additionally loses through the attempts to clean itself from this unwanted "trash" . This study is to show my point:
Irish scientists for several weeks, feed the mice preparations containing micro-organisms friendly intestinal flora, and then give different rodent experiments, checking cognitive functions. The results were surprising: mice "fatten" the digestive system characterized by greater determination, they had lower levels of stress hormones in the blood and performed better on tests of orientation. There were also more motivated, and in addition learned faster and have better memories than their "not fatten" friends.
Is that not what we want for our children?
So what's this all about?
Of course, we are talking about the intestines aka " the second brain" and living form in our body called microbes. They're being responsible for about 3-4 lbs of body weight in the intestines and help the body break carbohydrates and provide us with essential vitamins.
A microbe is a microscopic form of living which include bacteria, fungi, protists (eukaryotes), viruses, mites.
Microbiologists have confirmed that our body has 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells, that is, 90% of cells within us are not our only microbes.
This powerful community is not only responsible for proper digestion, metabolism of amino acids, producing myelin for nerve cells and substances supporting treatment called xenobiotics, but also for proper psychic health. In one word affects our immunity, stress, sex life, sleep , attitude to life such positive and negative.
The intestines are directly connected to the brain, which informs it about our inner life.This process is via the vagus nerve, which runs through the membrane and reaches directly to the brain .It is the longest of the cranial nerves.
Impulses that are sent through the intestines, get to many parts of the brain, including the limbic system, the islands, the amygdala and the hippocampus.
Our (not by all wanted) microbes produce substances that act on the vagus nerve, as a natural stimulation, which sends micro-impulses to improve mood.
In people with irritable bowel syndrome have a problem in communication between the intestines and the brain, which causes negative emotions. That explains why people with IBS often fall into anxiety and depression. The study also shows that patients with chronic inflammatory bowl disease (Crohn's disease), or suffering from a systematic infectious disease (Whipple) also fall into depression or anxiety.
Giulia Enders describes a test "After four weeks of a mixture of selected bacteria in the test there were marked changes in certain areas of the brain, particularly those which are responsible for the perception of pain and treatment of emotion". How it's possible? One of the reasons could be the influence of bacterial flora on the production of so-called. the hormone of happiness - because it turns out that more than 90 percent. serotonin produced by the human body arises just in the cells of the gut! When changing its activity, "upper" brain begins to receive other reports from the brain of the "bottom". Perhaps this is why the tortured bowel disease in a surprisingly effective and sustainable way ruining the mood of your head? If you harass us and drops the mood They fall inexplicable fears, remember: maybe it is not an imbalance of certain substances in the brain, but the condition of our stomach.
We already know how it works ,now we will learn how to take care of this. Of course, with the correct bacterial flora in our intestines, Probiotics, which is a natural antibiotic. They keep these bad bacteria in bay and prevent the development of bacteria responsible for food poisoning.
Strangely,more than one million people worldwide die each year by food poisoning.
The best food for our good intestinal bacteria-called Prebiotycs,- among others are fructooligosacharydy (FOS) - in plants such as asparagus, artichoke, chicory, onions , and lakuloza contained in lactose.
Prebiotics are typically non-digestible (not containing any micro-organisms)fiber compounds that pass undigested through the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and stimulate the growth or activity of advantageous bacteria that colonize the large bowel by acting as substrate for them
These substances may be proteins, fats, oligo- or polysaccharides which are non-digestible and unchanged reach the intestinal lumen to develop their activity there.
Prebiotics are fermented in the intestinal tract of the host by the action of intestinal microflora, in this process they create short chain fatty acids:
butyric acid - used to provide nutrition to colonocytes
and low molecular weight metabolic products (diacet yl), 2-pyrrolidone-5-carboxylic, bacteriocins, as well as derivatives of oxygen
Product Name Number of food fiber content of the product containing Prebe. [%] 6g of fiber Prebe. [G]

And this is how it works.
We discussed inside microbiota, now we go outside.
Let's look at our skin, the largest organ of the human body and the ecosystem composed of 1.8 square meters of habitats, which support a wide range of microorganisms including as we know of as bacteria, fungi and viruses and mites. Many of these microorganisms are harmless and protect against the invasion of more pathogenic or harmful organisms.
Healthy bacterial flora in our intestines has a very big impact on the condition of our skin for proper defense the skin bacteria have to do.
As you can see my passions (cosmetics and nutrition), it really coming down to a single topic. It is the human.
No cosmetic will cure irritated skin without a proper diet. As well as even the best diet will not save a human when his cosmetics are chemical bomb.
In my "kitchen cosmetic" for the subject can be found creams and milk cleansing lotions
