Tired all the time? So do you program your bowel is quite easy to awake
More and more people suffer from chronic fatigue. A healthy colon produces vitamins against fatigue, and why a healthy gut barrier up power, explains the gut-expert Sabine Karpe.
Constantly occurring fatigue in the daily life of nearly everyone is familiar with today. After all, every third German complains older than 16 on chronic fatigue syndrome (source: Statista). The causes can be very diverse: in addition to disorders of metabolism, or, for example, the hormone balance diet and of course Stress play a role. But also in our midst – the intestine – the cause may be.
Effects of a compromised bowel, among other things:
- Fatigue, exhaustion, decreased performance
- Irritable bowel syndrome, acute and chronic inflammation of the intestine
- Bloating, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, or constipation
- Chronic inflammation (joints, rheumatism)
- Allergies, Food Intolerances, Asthma
So a damaged gut leads in different ways to chronic fatigue and exhaustion, since the absorption of nutrients from food can no longer be disturbed, on the other, because the intestinal flora of the own vitamins to produce sufficient (e.g., Vitamin B12, and Biotin). Lead to last but not least, the invading pollutants to exhaustion and fatigue, since they claim the immune system strong.
The cause will explain the fascinating facts about the colon:
Our gut includes a size of approximately 400 square meters and, therefore, corresponds to a size of around 1.5 tennis courts. It is home to more than 500 species of bacteria. Many of them are not yet explored. Therefore, it can be also far more. He is like a kind of protective wall and repel pollutants. In addition, the intestine produces important enzymes for our digestion, but also vitamins. He is also involved in serotonin production. His best-known task is the digestion of our food and the absorption of important nutrients.
The intestine is not only a digestive organ, because almost 80 percent of all immune cells of the people sitting in the intestine. From the inside to the outside, we will meet on the following layers:
First, we meet the protective intestinal flora , with its numerous intestinal bacteria, including is a slimy Mukusschicht. It forms a protective layer for the next following intestinal mucosa. In order to give the Whole in our stomach are still properly Shut, encased in skin, connective tissue layer of the intestinal mucosa.
In this connective tissue layer also our blood and lymph vessels. So to get the nutrients from food in our bloodstream, and through this the above-mentioned layers. Foreign bodies and invaders can be excreted in intact layers of the most successfully defended, and a little later.
The certified nutritionist, and naturopath Sabine Karpe has specialized professionally in one of the most important organs of our body, the intestine.

These factors destroy the protective layer of the intestine
The protective mechanisms are, however, very sensitive and can be damaged by a variety of factors. For example, by:
- Stress (mentally and physically to high loads)
- improper diet (e.g. a lot of sugar, additives, low intake of short-chain fatty acids)
- unhealthy lifestyle (e.g. Smoking, lack of exercise)
- Drugs (e.g., antibiotics, pain relievers such as Aspirin or Ibuprofen, cortisone, “the pill”)
- chronic diseases (e.g. Diabetes, celiac disease)
Our protection are disrupted barriers, such as intestinal flora, Mukusschicht or intestinal mucosa, nutrients may not be absorbed sufficiently. The body’s own production of vitamins and enzymes is no longer in line. In addition, pollutants can increasingly also in the bloodstream (Leaky gut syndrome) and a variety of symptoms.
These 5 tips your intestine to help bring back the Balance
Sugar: sugar not only makes you fat and is bad for the teeth. In the gut, he makes for an unfavorable bacteria growth and brings the intestinal flora is out of balance. A waiver for several weeks as well as the subsequent restriction of sugar consumption, have a very positive effect on the intestines.
Turmeric as a natural remedy: no Matter whether powder or fresh tuber, turmeric acts as an anti-inflammatory and supports such a compromised intestinal mucosa. In addition, it acts cramps to a lesser extent, against the light belly.
Bone broth: The “Superfood broth” contains many nutrients such as collagen and gelatin – this will support the healing of a compromised intestinal mucosa.
Omega-3 fats: The intake of high quality Omega-3 fats from fish oil or algae improve the diversity and number of good bacteria in the gut. It also increases the number of bacteria that are anti-inflammatory and the risk of Obesity reduce. In the case of Omega-3 products you should make sure that the products are free from any residues of harmful substances.
Apple cider vinegar: This vinegar is a great product to the intestinal flora, of course, to strengthen, because the enzymes and the good bacteria help the intestines sustainably.
