New nutritional solutions for gut diseases
Colon cancer, Crohn’s, and other gut diseases affect many people, but new research offers prevention and treatment hope. The results published in the journal Nature Communications, discovered a new link between inflammation and a common cellular process, autophagy. Certain foods like pomegranates, red grapes, pears, mushrooms, lentils, soybeans and green peas contain natural compounds which can activate autophagy, which can help prevent inflammation and gut diseases. This offers people some practical steps for changing their diet, and medical professional insights for further research and treatment.
