Bread, bran and intestinal functioning


In the last 30 years, the use of bread has decreased significantly, leaving a large space for cakes and more.

Among the various causes reported by a considerable number of individuals we find:

  • abdominal swelling
  • Constipation
  • Weight gain
  • Water retention

However many people use “bran” with the intention of improving intestinal function.
It is good to remember that wheat (wheat in general) has been subject to biotechnological improvements and in this regard I would like to specify that the wheat cultivated for thousands of years was a diploid species (tetraploid durum wheat and hexaploid soft wheat).

To date we find in the wheat an extremely complex genetic patrimony that in the evolutionary course has created an allopoliploid species.

An allopoliploid species is formed when pollen from a plant fertilizes pollen from a plant that belongs to a different species.

This new species deliberately created through manipulation biotechnology was created to make the most of marketing by improving:

  • production ,
  • the quality of the harvest,
  • maturation,
  • disease resistance
  • resistance to environmental stress

It should be remembered that any change that occurs in a food substance will inevitably bring about a change, albeit slight, on the effects and functions within our body.

We also specify that each of us has followed will have a different reception within their physique and it should also be considered that an extremely fast modification is considered by our body, especially by our immune system as an unrecognized substance … therefore extraneous with all the consequences that derive from it.

In fact, many people have approached the use of corn (as pasta, like crackers) as they experience fewer ailments, this is motivated by the fact that corn is less predisposed to genetic changes.

The result is a state of well-being of the body, with a marked decrease in abdominal swelling, constipation, weight gain, water retention.

In the specific case of those who suffer from constipation, they use food products that contain a certain amount of bran to improve their condition to make up for this ailment.

This claim is also supported even if in an ephemeral form by multinationals and by the ignorance of many doctors.

It may seem strange, but in reality the presence of bran which is mainly taken to promote intestinal transit causes a considerable irritation on the mucous membranes of the colon, stimulating to quickly eliminate the material often through real diarrheal discharges.

It is good to remember that this does not happen in all individuals in the same way, some have no apparent effect but a slow and progressive irritability of the mucous membranes with the consequences that will ensue over time.

These solutions should not be used for intestinal rebalancing.

We remind those who want the recovery and physiological functioning of the intestine that it will be necessary to rebalance the liver function, that is, the liver, almost always responsible for this problem.

In this regard, I want to remind you that the liver needs a daily carbohydrate intake for its good functionality, therefore high-protein diets do not bring balance.

Therefore, quality will become fundamental, the association is the method of cooking the food eaten.

In addition to this we remember that every single organism is UNIQUE therefore it is unthinkable to be able to give the same foods to each of us thinking that we will all react in the same way.

Below I wanted to leave you a very generic idea of ​​food example (lunch and dinner) that creates a stimulating effect on the liver with a consequent intestinal stimulus

Lunch :
100gr of tuna in olive oil (quality) with 2 ripe tomatoes cut into wedges, 1 tablespoon of black olives in oil all seasoned with oil, salt, pepper and parsley or oregano + 2-3 corn cakes + 2 kiwis
50 (women) / 70 gr (man) of corn paste with pesto without garlic with basil olive oil almonds and parmesan 30 months + pan-seared cabbage (must remain slightly al dente) with extra virgin olive oil + 1 peeled apple
