Basic Q & A for pollinosis and ground sesame yogurt
A Because each food prepares the intestinal environment.
In order to improve the intestinal environment, the first step is to eat foods that contain a lot of good bacteria.
However, if you don’t take dietary fiber together, good bacteria will not work well.
Grated sesame yogurt is recommended as a combination of good bacteria and dietary fiber.
● Yogurt is rich in good bacteria!
Fermented foods contain a lot of good bacteria. Among them, yogurt is a representative fermented food that can produce lactic acid bacteria, which are good bacteria. It’s also easy and easy to eat.
● Sesame increases good bacteria!
Rich in dietary fiber that feeds good bacteria.
In addition, sesamin, which is a component peculiar to sesame, is an anti-allergic substance and relieves the symptoms of pollinosis.

Adjust as you like. However, use ground sesame seeds to ensure the nutrition of the sesame seeds.
In particular, black sesame and polyphenols can be taken together, but even gold sesame and white sesame are effective enough.
A There is a close relationship between pollinosis, which is an overreaction of immunity, and the intestine.
Many immune cells are gathered in the intestine to fight off pathogens that enter the mouth.
On the other hand, allergic diseases such as pollinosis are caused by improper immune function.
One trend these days is to improve the intestinal environment so that immune cells work normally and suppress allergies from the intestines.
A It is important to have a good lifestyle
Lack of sleep and stress can cause good bacteria to fail and worsen the intestinal environment.
Especially in a life that tends to stay at home, it tends to be disturbed, so be sure to adjust your daily rhythm, and try to have a balanced diet and moderate exercise.

“In this study, taking sesame yogurt for 4 weeks in March-April, when hay fever symptoms are more likely to occur, showed improvement in the person’s feelings and intestinal environment. Continuation is important in diet therapy. However, since sesame yogurt is easy, I think it’s easy to continue.
Now, in Japan, lack of dietary fiber and protein is a problem. In addition, when I have a medical examination, I notice that I am not feeling well due to not having breakfast properly.
