German nutritionist Monica Bischoff said that intestinal bacteria are the key to health and beauty, as they protect against disease and help to enjoy the elegance and pure skin on the other hand. Bischoff said that the balance of intestinal bacteria is disturbed by unhealthy diet such as fast food, for example, antibiotics or hormonal contraception, paving the way for serious diseases such as Crohn’s disease, cancer and heart disease, as well as weight gain and skin problems .
To support the balance of intestinal bacteria, Bischoff advises eating foods rich in dietary fiber found in vegetables and fresh fruits such as broccoli, cabbage, artichoke, carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, figs and bananas.
Food-rich sources include whole grains and legumes such as lentils, beans, peas and chickpeas, as well as pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and nuts.
It is also important to stay away from junk food and finished products, which contain added chemicals, as well as unsaturated fatty acids found in frying foods, as well as sugar, white flour products and fruit juices.
