Feed the gut right

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BODY MIND & SOUL - WELLNESS -

TO­DAY’S mod­ern diet con­sists mostly of pro­cessed foods, which are nor­mally high in su­gar, re­fined flour and fat. At the same time, our fi­bre con­sump­tion has taken a dras­tic dive.

A diet high in fatty food and re­fined su­gar but low in fi­bre can shift the bal­ance of mi­croflora in an un­health­ier di­rec­tion.

Hav­ing too much bad in­testi­nal bac­te­ria can cause di­ges­tive symp­toms such as in­di­ges­tion, con­sti­pa­tion and other health is­sues like mi­cronu­tri­ents mal­ab­sorp­tion and weight gain.

Harm­ful bac­te­ria in the gut con­vert sug­ars to store as fats, re­sult­ing in weight gain. Stud­ies have dis­cov­ered that harm­ful bac­te­ria are par­tic­u­larly com­mon in the di­ges­tive tract of over­weight peo­ple.

Tak­ing a pro­bi­otics sup­ple­ment is a pop­u­lar way to op­ti­mise in­testi­nal bac­te­ria for bet­ter di­ges­tive health.

How­ever, this is in vain if the gut en­vi­ron­ment does not favour the good bac­te­ria to grow.

To re­store good in­testi­nal en­vi­ron­ment, sol­u­ble fi­bre such as inulin plays an im­por­tant role. It helps feed the good bac­te­ria in the gut and pro­motes its growth, while sup­press­ing the growth of harm­ful bac­te­ria.

Get­ting rid of these harm­ful bac­te­ria would go a long way in main­tain­ing a healthy weight.

A favourite among celebri­ties

As a pop­u­lar artiste, Ji­han Muse has to al­ways look her best. With a busy sched­ule that leaves lit­tle time for healthy eat­ing, this hasn’t been easy. In­di­ges­tion and con­sti­pa­tion plagued her con­stantly – un­til now, that is.

“I’m re­ally sur­prised how much I love this drink. I re­ally en­joy the lemon tea taste and it has a pleas­ing tex­ture so it's de­light­ful to drink. Best of all, in­di­ges­tion and con­sti­pa­tion are prob­lems of the past now. I’ve lost weight and feel much more con­fi­dent in clothes that show off my fig­ure in just 10 weeks,” she says.
