You might have gastrointestinal tract problems if you encounter these symptoms:
- feeling of sensations of fullness in your stomach
There can be a lot of reasons.
But why not give herbal medicine a try?
Actually, little has been known about herbal medicine. Only five percent out of all the plant species in the planet are accepted and cataloged. And believe it or not, only a quarter of this five percent have medicinal qualities.
One of them is ashitaba or the tomorrow leaf. It seems this tomorrow plant is booming in the Philippines. Why? It has so many health benefits that we can't afford to lose! (You can explore them in this blog.)
Now, we talk about how it cures GI tract disorders.
Ashitaba is Rich in Prebiotic Fiber
Ashitaba treats gastrointestinal tract disorders such as chronic gastritis, acute gastritis, duodenal ulcer, stomach cancer, chlorydria, gastric atonia and chronic enteritis. This is backed up by evidence from the study of National Institude for Agricultural Research in Nantes, France. Researchers found out that tomorrow leaves contain natural prebiotic fiber that impacts GI tract disorders positively and significantly.
If you're not aware, GI tract disorders, especially colitis and acute gastritis, affect more than two million people in the world. They cause erosion of your stomach mucosa, ulceration of the colon and inflammation that can result to malfunction of your immune system.
Ashitaba stimulates the growth of prebiotics to produce vital components of short-chain fatty acids to activate immunity and lower the intestinal environment's pH. With adequate amount of prebiotic fiber in your body, you will have more regulated bowel movements and possible reduced risk of having colon cancer. Fecal bulk will be increased and transit time will be regulated.
In addition, prebiotic fiber prevents the colonization of the intestines as it has the capability to invade pathogenic bacteria like E-coli and Clostridium. Ashitaba generates good bacteria in the body to increase the number of bifidobacteria in the digestive tract. Bifidobacteria helps to increase Vitamin B and vitamin K and digest fats, carbohydrates and proteins faster.
Another account was from Dr. Baba at Osaka University School of Pharmacy. In his paper, he showed a decrease in the severity of stress related to stomach ulcers. The extract of Angelica Keiskei Koidzumi also exhibited an anti-bacterial action.
Also, ashitaba contains chalcones which work on the mucus membrane in the stomach and suppress the excessive secretion of gastric juice that prevents stomach ulcers. The onset is that the gastrointestinal tract will be cleaned. Ultimately, your body will be more conducive to absorb calcium, zinc and magnesium and be more hostile to bad bacteria.
