Cellulite and probiotic therapy
Frequently asked question:
-Why should I consume probiotics if I’m feeling well and have not used antibiotics for a long time?
There are many answers, but in this article I will give one of them: CELLULITE.
–What does cellulite have in common with probiotic therapy? Let’s remind then WHAT IS CELLULITE?
Most of us treat cellulite as a cosmetic problem. At the end of the cause and effect chain, it is visible as “Orange peel” located in different parts of the body. Usually these are thighs, buttocks, abdomen, which is where fat tissue often accumulates.
Unfortunately, the problem of cellulite affects younger and younger women. It used to be the 25-35 age range. Currently, teenagers are already struggling with cellulite, and in extreme cases it begins to occur in eight-year-old children.
Cellulite is a phenomenon of subcutaneous changes that are a picture of abnormal connective tissue growth that causes disturbances in blood and lymph flow, which leads to the accumulation of undigested waste products of metabolism. Their causes are most often seen in hormonal disorders. However, there are more and more indications of disorders of work and condition of our intestines. It is recognized that cellulite is the final stage of protecting our body against unwanted toxins that the body could not cope with. Toxic compounds generated by parasites present in us, pathogenic microorganisms, or other introduced into the organisms, e.g. along with food, are subjected to the process of “surrounding” fat and thus are no longer so harmful to the health of our body.
Cellulite thus reflects digestive problems, poor nutrition and metabolism, and intestinal flora imbalance. The lack of adequate amount of water is also of great importance in the formation of cellulite. The reason for its formation can also be too little or no physical activity.
As you can see, the claim that healthy intestines are synonymous with a healthy person is confirmed “at every step.” And cellulite, in fact, is also a picture of what is happening in our intestines!
In other words, cellulite is a cluster of toxins and its “roots” originate in faulty intestines! If there is a predominance of pathogenic bacteria in their space, it is synonymous with a deficit of healthy bacteria. There is a microbiological imbalance leading to dysbiosis and intestinal leakage. As a consequence, consumed food, often highly processed and containing significant amounts of sugar, preservatives, flavor enhancers, etc., will not be properly processed. As a result, toxins are produced, which are absorbed into the bloodstream through a leaking intestinal wall! Instead of being neutralized or eliminated at the intestinal level, they poison the body. With their excess, the immune system cannot cope and starts the process of toxin deposition in adipose tissue.
This process seems to be simple. If the right amount of probiotic microflora is not present in the intestines, then too much toxin is formed during metabolism. The body dilutes them in water, because then they become less aggressive. Through leaky intestines they enter the bloodstream and eventually accumulate in connective tissue. Adipose tissue immobilizes them in those places where we can observe cellulite.
Summarizing; cellulite is the protection of our body against pollution and destructive toxins. What we often call the “tire” on the stomach is also the “lifebuoy” of the body. The process looks very simply like the formula: faulty intestines + toxin + water + fat = cellulite.
It turns out that cellulite is not only an aesthetic problem, cellulite is a serious picture of our bowel dysfunction leading to further health problems. With it, using only external countermeasures is not enough to reduce the appearance of “orange peel”. Such actions will be only ad hoc measures that will not completely eliminate the problem. Therefore, it is very important to regularly rebuild the beneficial, probiotic intestinal flora of the body, thereby reducing this pathogenic one.
And here we come to the answer to the question posed at the beginning: Why do you need to use probiotic therapy?
First of all, because without the right amount and quality of healthy bacterial flora, the human body cannot function properly. Probiotics help our body restore microbial balance in the intestinal space. They have a direct effect on the reduction and neutralization of the toxin, break down undigested food residues, which otherwise are subject to putrefactive, i.e. toxin-forming, processes.
Regularly taken probiotics contribute to the detoxification of the body, as a result of which you can reduce already formed cellulite. This process, just like the body itself, needs our support, i.e. regularly providing the right amount and quality of probiotics as well as the necessary amount of water, introducing fiber-rich products into the diet, e.g. ground linseed, eating fruit and vegetables, and minimizing sugar consumption, highly processed food, using white flour or fatty foods. At the same time, probiotic food products as part of probiotic prophylaxis need to be part of a daily, balanced diet.
Probiotic bacteria contribute to improving the functioning of the immune system, metabolism and directly affect the sealing of the intestinal mucosa, are a natural barrier for pathogens. The body free of toxins will not have to protect itself against their destructive effects. Probably none of us wants to experience the phenomenon of cellulite. If so, the indication is probiotic therapy. At the same time, it is recommended to consume probiotic preparations containing a complex of live strains of probiotic bacteria and their valuable health-promoting metabolites that are part of a healthy lifestyle supporting everyday vitality.
