A healthy intestine is one of the most important basic requirements for our health. This is shown by the fact that even rather simple complaints in the intestinal tract can significantly affect our general well-being. These include flatulence, bloating or constipation.
A healthy intestine ensures much more than good digestion. It is also the largest contact surface with the environment and this must be protected. The microorganisms colonizing the intestine – the so-called microbiome -, the intestinal mucosa and the intestine-associated immune system play a very decisive role.
