40% of people suffer from protein intolerance and half of the world’s population cannot tolerate lactose. In Eastern countries and South Africa, the percentage is even higher.
If an allergy can be from childhood, then intolerance usually manifests itself over time – after 20-25 years.
With age, a person does not need sugar and milk in as much as he used to use them in childhood, stocked with energy. The metabolism slows down, so it becomes more and more difficult for the body to digest certain elements in the same quantities. If you ignore this and keep loading the body, inflammation develops in the intestines.
Products that most often cause intestines intolerance:
- Gluten-containing grains: wheat, rye, barley.
Gluten is a protein, which is also called gluten. Gluten is found in large quantities in grains and cereals – wheat, rye, barley. Celiac is gluten intolerance and is the final stage of the entire autoimmune gluten sensitivity spectrum. Today, you can perform tests and determine if you have gluten intolerance. You can keep a gluten-free diet for a month and observe how you are feeling.
- Vegetables of the nightshade family
Tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and potatoes contain alkaloids that provoke inflammation in some people. These vegetables also contain lectins – highly toxic proteins in their peel, seeds and leaves.
Beans, lentils, chickpea, edamame are often the basis of nutrition for those who adhere to a plant diet. Beans with a large number of lectins, which some people have a hard time assimilating.
Egg white can cause intolerance and inflammation.
This abbreviation stands for: Fermentable Oligosaccharides Disaccharides Monosaccharides And Polyols. What is translated as “fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols. These sugars are not fully digested in the intestine and are fermented (fermented) by intestinal bacteria. In the fermentation process, gases are released – hydrogen and methane, which can lead to stretching of the intestine and cause symptoms such as pain, gases, bloating stomach, constipation, diarrhea.
Most of the products with high FODMAP are useful. But what is suitable for one person may not be suitable for another. This is a list of products that should be excluded or strictly limited, in case of symptoms of irritable bowel:
Vegetables: artichokes, asparagus, beet, celery, garlic, leek, leek, Savoy cabbage, sweet peas, corn, and beans.
Fruit: apples, mangoes, nectarines, peaches, pears, plums, watermelon.
Nuts: cashews, pistachios.
The aim of FODMAP intolerance treatment is to cure intestines. At the end of the treatment you can return your favorite products to your diet.
- Dairy products
Casein – a protein contained in dairy products, very often causes hypersensitivity. The fact is that cows on large dairy farms are usually given antibiotics and hormones, they eat combined feed instead of grass. Milk is usually pasteurized and degreased. The lack of nutrients is replenished with synthetic vitamins. Fermented dairy products (fermented milk) such as kefir and yogurt are usually better tolerated.
- Nuts and seeds
These products are also rich in lectins. In addition, nuts sold in stores are usually covered with soy or rapeseed oils containing partially hydrogenated trans fats. These fats are cheap and harmful. Therefore it is better to buy nuts raw, soaked and eat them in reasonable quantities.
