The importance of an intact intestinal flora cannot be overstated. Fortunately, today, we have many opportunities contributing to the care and maintenance of the intestine as for example through nutrition. Foods with probiotic bacteria, fibres and fibre from whole grains and vegetables as well as sufficient exercise keep the intestines intact.
Without an efficient intestinal flora, humans cannot maintain an optimal health in the long-run.
The detoxification mechanisms, the digestive capacity and performance of the immune system depend to a great extent on a good intestinal ecology.
