Devil’s Tongue / Glucomannan:
The devil’s tongue, also known as the leopard calendula or cognac manna, is a plant native to eastern Asia. An elongated, perennial plant that loves warmth and tropical climate, its stem and flower could be likened to a carnivorous plant. The plant is grown for its precious root tuber underground, which can reach a diameter of up to 23-25 centimeters. Glucomannan is extracted from this tuber, the positive, beneficial effects of which have already been shown in Annex VI. It has been used in the Far East since the 16th century. Occurs naturally, it contains minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium and potassium. The East Asian herb is nicknamed “KILL KILO” because it is an all-natural fiber that can absorb up to three hundred times its own from water.Due to its water-binding capacity, glucomannan contributes to weight loss as part of a reduced-energy diet.
The devil language is used with great preference by Japanese cuisine. The tuber of the devil’s tongue is chopped, dried, and ground, from which cognac flour is made. This flour is used to make shirataki dough, which is gaining great popularity in the eastern market.
This mineral is a bluish, brittle, metallic element at room temperature. Its name comes from the German name Zink, also called zinc in Hungarian.
Zinc in the form of alloys has been known since ancient times, but the material itself was only produced around 1300. No one thought about his role in the human body for a long time.
The body contains 2-3 grams of zinc, mainly in the hair, eyes and male genitals, but it is also found in the liver, kidneys, muscles and skin.
Its main natural sources are:
Eggs, legumes, liver, seafood, crab, pumpkin seeds, grain germ, oilseeds.
Why is zinc important?
Zinc is involved in normal carbohydrate metabolism, normal metabolism of macronutrients, fatty acids and vitamin A, and maintenance of normal acid-base balance. It contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, normal vision, hair, nails and skin. It also contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system, the protection of cells against oxidative stress, the maintenance of normal mental function, normal DNA synthesis, and the maintenance of normal blood testosterone levels. It plays a role in cell division, normal protein synthesis, and the maintenance of normal fertility and reproduction.
Iodine is a brownish-black, metallically shiny solid discovered by Bernard Courtois in 1811. This mineral is one of the trace elements useful to our body, i.e. trace elements, which is present in some foods naturally, while in others it is found in added form. Normally, about 15-20 mg of iodine is found in an adult’s body.
Its main natural sources are:
Sea fish and plants, shellfish, iodized salt and drinking water.
Why is iodine important?
Iodine is involved in normal energy-producing metabolic processes. It contributes to the normal production of thyroid hormones and the normal functioning of the thyroid gland, as well as the normal functioning of the nervous system, the maintenance of normal mental function, and the maintenance of the normal condition of the skin.
It is named after Selena, the goddess of the moon in Greek mythology. By the late 1800s, it was proven to be an essential trace element for the body because it contains an enzyme called glutathione peroxidase, which protects the body against toxins that have entered our bodies. Selenium is found in only 10-15 mg in the human body.
Its main natural sources:
Paradise, tuna, sunflower seeds, rice, red meat poultry, baked goods made from wholemeal flour, cashews.
Why is selenium important?
With vitamin E, they mutually enhance each other’s beneficial effects, thus helping to protect cells from oxidative stress. In addition, selenium helps maintain the normal condition of the nails and hair, as well as the functioning of the normal thyroid and immune systems.
Chromium is an essential trace element of the human body, although our body needs very little, but it plays an extremely important role and its physiological effects are manifold. Chromium is stored by our body in the kidneys, spleen and liver.
Its main natural sources are:
Peanuts, green peas, brewer’s yeast, potatoes, whole grains, eggs, black beans.
Why is chrome important?
Chromium is involved in the normal metabolism of macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats) and helps maintain normal blood sugar levels.
Inulin and live flora / Probiotic and Prebiotic:
The living flora is made up of beneficial, living microorganisms that help maintain a healthy balance of the intestinal flora by surviving the acidic medium in the gastrointestinal tract. Our products contain several live flora and Inulin, which promotes their growth, in high germ counts.
A Probiotic also known as the living flora of Greek origin, meaning: for life. In today’s sense, RB Parker first used the term probiotic in 1974 as the organisms and substances responsible for microbial balance in the intestinal tract. Probiotics are characterized by their human origin, non-pathogens, resistance to gastric acid, bile, and digestive enzymes in saliva, pancreas, and intestinal fluids. They retain their resilience during the shelf life of the food and during technological processes. In addition, probiotics are able to adhere to mucosal cells, have an antimicrobial effect against potential pathogens, and reduce the adhesion of pathogenic microbes to the mucosal surface. Most probiotics are lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria.Most of the best-known strains of probiotic lactic acid bacteria are Lactobacillus, a smaller part belong to the genus Streptococcus.
Prebiotics are natural nutrients that are typically the exclusive nutrients in probiotics and therefore help them to multiply and become predominant. In the oral cavity and in the gastrointestinal tract, prebiotics are not broken down by digestive enzymes, so they can enter the colon undigested. Prebiotics are dietary fiber, but they are soluble in water, so they are also the most excellent dietary fiber. In addition to their dietary fiber function, their real benefit lies in the fact that they are the exclusive foods of probiotics. Because there is already little digestible food in the colon, i.e., there is a relative lack of food, the prebiotics consumed offer an opportunity for human-friendly intestinal bacteria to multiply.
In their natural state, they occur in many foods, such as Jerusalem artichokes, chicory roots, onions, garlic, leeks, artichokes, whole grains, wheat, bananas, flax, spinach, cabbage, chard, mustard, berries, legumes, and more.
One of the types of prebiotics is Inulins, actually a dietary fiber that reaches the colon undigested, increasing the proliferation of probiotics, their predominance.
Their role: digestion, balance of intestinal flora.
Our body is connected to the outside world through our largest intestinal system, about 7-9 meters long. Thus, it serves as a potential attack site for pathogens and toxic substances. There are normally about 200-400 bacterial strains in the gut. In fetal life, beneficial bacteria predominate in 95-98%. A healthy gut flora provides protection against a number of pathogens, ensures the integrity of the intestinal mucosa, and helps the body absorb the nutrients it needs. They produce many vitamins that are essential for the body. If the defense mechanisms of the digestive system are weakened, it can interfere with absorption processes, among other things.
Probiotics, in order to be able to affect their environment, are a prerequisite for the presence of a large number, which means at least 108 cfu of organisms per gram in the intestinal fluid.
What does cfu mean?
cfu: colony forming unit per milliliter, number of viable microorganisms (germ count). The amount of bacteria in the compositions is usually expressed in such units. However, Inulin is expressed in mg. An appropriate dose of a minimum of 109 cfu is accepted.
What is an effective live flora preparation?
– The growth of probiotics is promoted by prebiotics, so the product should contain Inulin or fructooligosaccharides.
– They are resistant to the effects of stomach acid, bile and digestive enzymes, so that beneficial bacteria can reach the colon alive, where they can multiply and stick. An essential criterion is that the bacteria retain their viability as they pass through the gastrointestinal tract.
– Good live flora preparations contain a minimum of 5-6 strains, as we want to replace the diverse multiculture of intestinal bacteria.
– They retain their resilience during the warranty period and during technological processes.
– Contains an adequate number of germs, a minimum of 10 recommended by experts8 or 10 9 colony forming units.
