Nutrition has an enormous influence on the body's defence system, the mind, cravings and even behaviour. In this book, Dora Borostyan and Carola Schoch explain how the gut – our second brain – works. This is important because whether someone feels good or bad is closely related to the gut and the bacteria living in it. Sub-optimal intestinal flora can be the cause of a wide range of complaints including obesity, chronic fatigue and depression.
Which foods are good for you and which should be avoided? What should we eat? What's still allowed? These questions are not always easy to answer, not least because food trends, which have mushroomed in recent years, and advertising have such a marked influence our buying habits and therefore our health.
The authors explain in easy-to-understand terms how sugars, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins etc. affect the immune system. Join us on this fascinating journey into the world of nutrients and take a look behind the scenes of the food industry. Use clever healthy recipes to modify your intestinal flora and take a new attitude towards life. You won't regret it!
Two-thirds of the book deals with topics including gut bacteria, gut rehabilitation, the body's own building blocks (e.g. fats, proteins and carbohydrates), nutrition, healthy and unhealthy foods, and the food industry. It includes many interesting studies on these topics. In the final third you will find 70 delicious recipes.
