Reverse – Slow Down – Prevent
Leaky gut syndrome, also known as intestinal permeability, is a digestive condition that occurs when the lining of the intestinal wall becomes excessively permeable, allowing harmful substances like toxins, undigested food particles, and bacteria to leak into the bloodstream. This can trigger an inflammatory response, leading to a wide range of health problems.
Common symptoms of leaky gut include bloating, gas, abdominal pain, food sensitivities, fatigue, headaches, and skin issues. While the exact cause of leaky gut is not fully understood, factors such as stress, poor diet, overuse of antibiotics, and certain medications can contribute to its development.
Fortunately, leaky gut can be treated through a combination of dietary and lifestyle changes. These may include eliminating foods that trigger inflammation, consuming a nutrient-dense diet, managing stress levels, and taking supplements like probiotics, digestive enzymes, and glutamine. With proper care and attention, it is possible to heal the intestinal lining, reduce inflammation, and alleviate symptoms associated with leaky gut syndrome.
