Green Peas (Pisum Sativum) Improves the Digestive Functioning in Flavor of Good Bacteria

By Kyle J. Norton

The digestive system included the gastrointestinal tract, the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder plays a critical role to maintain the body normal function by providing nutrients and fluids to the body and remove waste through the secretary system.

Digestion is a process of the digestive system by breaking out down food after food intake through mechanical and enzymatic action.

Indigestion, on the other hand, is symptoms of another digestive disease, including GERD. Most cases of indigestion not caused by underlying diseases can be resolved quickly.

People with indigestion experience symptoms differently. Some may feel the symptoms of occasionally while others may feel often and daily.

There are a number of risk factor associated with digestive disorders including bacterial and/or viral infection, inflammation, lactase deficiency, anti-inflammatory drugs and certain conditions such as ruptured or perforated organs, muscle dysfunction, gallstones.

However, some researchers suggested that there is a strong correlation between the risk of digestive disorders in obese patients.

Dr. Su Youn Nam, in the investigation of obesity-related digestive diseases, wrote, “Obesity-related digestive diseases include gastroesophageal reflux disease, Barrett’s esophagus, esophageal cancer, colon polyp and cancer, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, hepatitis C-related disease, hepatocellular carcinoma, gallstone, cholangiocarcinoma, and pancreatic cancer”.

And, “Although obesity-related esophageal diseases are associated with altered mechanical and humoral factors, other obesity-related digestive diseases seem to be associated with obesity-induced altered circulating levels of adipocytokines and insulin resistance”.

The findings strongly indicated the risk of digestive disorder in obese is substantially higher compared to healthy weight individuals.

Green peas are species of Pisum Sativum belongings to the family Fabaceae and native to western Asia from the Mediterranean Sea to the Himalaya Mountains. The pea is a green, pod-shaped vegetable and a cool-season crop grown in many parts of the world.

On finding a potent ingredient for the treatment of digestive diseases, researchers investigated the effects of soybean meal (SBM) substitution by a mixture of rapeseed meal (RSM), white lupine seeds (WLS) and pea seeds (PS) on gastrointestinal function in Hyplus rabbits.

Selected Hyplus rabbits were fed by either control diet (SBM15) containing 15% SBM, or diet SBM7.5 containing 7.5% SBM, 5% RSM, 4% WLS and 3% PS. In diet SBM0 or diet SBM0, SBM completely was replaced by RSM, WLS and PS (10%, 8%, and 6%, respectively).

Based on the tested analysis, the experimental diets did not cause significant differences in performance parameters evaluated in vivo and post-mortem, and in the nutrient and energy digestibility of nitrogen retention.
However, the change of enzymatic activity of large gut microbiota in flavors of the good bacteria was found to have a similar effect in the comparison of diet SBM and the mixture of RSM, WLS, and PS.
In other words,  pea seeds (PS) used a combination with rapeseed meal (RSM) and lupine seeds (WLS)  processes a significant effect in balancing the levels of microbiota in the promotion of digestive functioning.

Taken altogether, green peas used alone or combined with other healthy food may be considered a  remedy for the promotion of gastrointestinal health,  pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
