It is said that to grasp a man's heart, first of all, it is necessary to grasp his stomach, which is very scientific. However, men have some bad habits that they cannot control themselves, which can greatly affect the efficiency and longevity of their stomachs. We need to take good care of them.
Eating too fast
Swallowing is a typical image of a man eating, but it can ruin the image of his stomach. If you chew a bite of food 20 times (ideally 30 times), the degree of fragmentation of the food is 10 points, and if you chew it 10 times, it may be 5 points. When it comes to food absorption, there is no standard, and the remaining 5 points require extra effort from the stomach. Therefore, eating too fast can increase the burden on the stomach, causing stomach muscle fatigue, decreased gastric motility, and even too coarse food can directly wear the gastric mucosa.
Eating before bedtime
Eating anything before bedtime can damage your stomach, including drinking milk, juice, etc. "Due to the protein, fat, and sugar in milk, which can cause gastric acid secretion, they are quickly expelled by the stomach, leaving only gastric acid in an empty stomach. It is natural for the useless gastric acid to corrode the gastric mucosa.". In the long run, it may cause damage to the stomach.
Disordered eating time
Men are more likely to become workaholics and "forget to eat and sleep", and the eating habits of starving and satiating can have a considerable adverse impact on the regular digestive system. The stomach is an organ that adheres to a strict schedule and secretes gastric acid at the appointed time. If there is no food available for stomach digestion at this time, the digestive fluid has to start digesting the gastric mucosa itself.
Abuse of painkillers
Men seem to be more afraid of hospitals, and if the pain is not too severe, they will find their own medicine to take. The mechanism of action of most painkillers is to relieve pain by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins. This substance amplifies the "pain sensation" signal, causing us to feel abnormal pain. By suppressing it, pain is reduced or eliminated. "But at the same time, we have also abandoned another role of prostaglandins - protecting the gastric mucosa. When painkillers reduce prostaglandins, the acidic digestive fluid in the stomach may be destroying the gastric wall, causing ulcers and perforations.".
In addition to damaging the lungs, tobacco can also cause significant damage to the stomach. Nicotine harms the gastric mucosa from multiple directions: constricting blood vessels, reducing the blood supply to the gastric mucosa, and damaging its integrity; Under the attack of nicotine, the inlet of the stomach becomes relaxed, and corrosive bile flows back into the stomach; Inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins that have a restorative effect on the gastric mucosa; Promote gastric acid secretion and directly corrode the gastric mucosa based on the destruction of the gastric mucosal barrier. So people who smoke too much easily suffer from gastritis.
