“Banned” Foods CURE Stomach Problems
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you suffer from an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) like Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis, you already know how incredibly hard they are to manage.
The agonizing stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhea, lethargy and urgent runs to the bathroom can quickly control your life.
Fortunately, Midwest researchers have found that a certain nutrient can help get even the worst cases of IBD under control.
And believe it or not, it’s found in foods you’ve probably been told to skip.
Foods like red meat, poultry, eggs, cheese and chocolate might sound like a bad idea for folks suffering from IBD, but that’s not actually the case.
You see, these foods contain a special compound called tryptophan, which researcher have suspected plays a key role in managing IBD.
To prove this, the researchers examined how bacteria and immune cells worked together in the guts of mice.
After hours of observation, they found that mice who had a certain bacterium, Lactobacillus reuteri, also had special immune cells that helped lower gut inflammation.
And the key to getting more of these vital bacterium, and in turn more immune cells, is tryptophan.
In fact, when the research team doubled the tryptophan in the mice’s feed, the number of immune cells rose by nearly 50 percent!
This means all you have to do to lower your IBD symptoms is eat more delicious tryptophan-rich foods.
Imagine eating a juicy steak followed by a piece of decadent dark chocolate to cure your stomach problems. Sounds like a dream come true!
Additionally, you can get tryptophan supplements at your local pharmacy if you’re not sure you’re getting enough in your diet.
