Gut microbiota and KASANENI
Talking Nature Lab, based on scientific research on gut bacteria, considers it necessary for various gut bacteria to settle in the gut for healthy life, and has created supplements to help them develop there. The reason why colonization of intestinal bacteria is important is that they play an essential role in the absorption of nutrients by humans. In fact, studies in Sri Lanka have shown that the greater the amount of gut bacteria, the greater the effect of the herbs ingested. However, taking supplements alone is not enough. Because our bodies are basically what we eat, and supplements only help. For this reason, it is very important to have a delicious, safe diet that delights our gut bacteria and enables bacteria to efficiently convert food into nutrients, etc., in order to acquire a healthy body.
Therefore, I also researched diet methods that enhance the effects of supplements. While conducting my investigation, I came across a cooking method called "layered simmering". Layered simmering is a very simple cooking method in which ingredients such as vegetables are layered in a proper order and simmered. Layered simmering can really appeal to gut bacteria and has the power to be the basic recipe for creative and healthy living. I would like to introduce the effect of simmering in order to spread such a wonderful cooking method to people all over the world.
Weakening of the gut microbiota in modern society
What feeds the gut microbiota necessary for our good health is the food we eat. However, not all foods are good, and some foods are easier to use than others. For this reason, gut bacteria use nerves and hormones to encourage humans to eat foods that are easy to use. However, many modern people have not been able to pick up this signal from gut bacteria. Indeed, as we grow older, the desire and the perception that we want to eat a certain type of food and that we like it will be greatly influenced by the outside world. Specifically, one of the reasons people like a certain food has to do with experiential learning. For example, coffee and beer may not taste great at first, but people find them more and more delicious as they grow older and consume them.
This is partly due to the influence of the dependent ingredients, but it is also believed that the main factor is that the feeling of pleasure and displeasure changes under the influence of various information and prejudices. In other words, humans are strongly influenced by external factors and their eating behavior changes. Additionally, because we are surrounded by colorful and processed foods to prevent spoilage, we are less confident in deciding whether the food is good or bad. However, these foods are the most hated by the gut microbiota, and eating them kills it on a daily basis. In other words, in modern society we are influenced by various external factors and do not eat the food that gut bacteria demand, but also ingest a lot of things that are involved in weakening them.
And now the weakened intestinal bacteria are unable to cope with various diseases and viruses. As you can see from the explanations so far, we do not live alone, but with microorganisms such as intestinal bacteria. Therefore, ignoring the cries of germs leads to a major crisis in our own life and health. That's why I think the world needs a layered simmer that allows gut bacteria to enjoy a beneficial meal.
How Gut Bacteria Work
From there, I'll explain how gut bacteria actually work and how the layered simmer helps. Wild animals can identify what they can eat, even if they haven't been trained. Why is it? Indeed, animals can determine whether their food is edible or not based on the sensations they have acquired during evolution (especially taste and smell). That is, the nutrition required for all animals becomes delicious, and toxic foods are always considered to have unpleasant tastes (bitter taste, sour taste). This sensation is common to many animals, including humans.
And this sensation is a reflexive function in the lower brainstem led by gut bacteria. In other words, the presence of gut bacteria ensures that animals, including us, get the nutrition they need and avoid dangerous toxins. By the way, gut bacteria are living things too, so they always need a source of energy. The main source of energy for gut bacteria are carbohydrates, like our cells, but “dietary fiber” is the main food for gut bacteria. However, gut bacteria begin to break down animal protein when carbohydrates are deficient. When animal proteins are broken down, they produce substances that are not very good for your health. For this reason, it is important to supply carbohydrates such as dietary fiber to the intestines.
There are, however, many people who dislike vegetable dishes that are high in dietary fiber. This is because the vegetables are not cooked in a way that brings out their flavor perfectly. Therefore, I would like to introduce you to the simmered layers. Layered simmering is a new cooking method that is turning the image of people who dislike vegetables in plant-based cooking upside down. As mentioned above, the basic cooking method for layered simmering is simple and can be adopted by anyone in the world. In addition, it has the power to change the bitterness and harshness of vegetables, which many children dislike, into a mellow and deep taste. Most notably, layered simmering is a recipe made for organic vegetables, because vegetables that use a lot of pesticides don't harmonize well with the original power of simmering.
