What Is Leaky Gut?

What Is Leaky Gut?

What is leaky gut? It sounds awful I know, I would rather rename it to inflamed gut. According to the research, leaky gut could be the cause of your food allergies, low energy, joint pain, thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions and slow metabolism. Leaky gut or intestinal permeability are mentioned over 11,000 in PubMed. And an increased intestinal permeability is referenced almost 5,000 times in PubMed. So again you’re seeing here over 11,000 medical references to this condition. So obviously it exists. Obviously it’s a major cause of health issues with everyone all across the world today

Watch my webinar below to understand in simple terms what it is…

Leaky gut is when the tight junctions in the gut, which control what passes through the lining of the small intestine, don’t work properly. That could let substances leak into the bloodstream. Think of your gut like a net. When there are whole in the net (Leaky gut) substances pass through that you don’t want to pass through. This can lead to inflammation throughout your system and can cause symptoms, such as:
BloatingAbdominal Cramps
Food sensitivities
Thyroid conditions
Joint pain
Skin issues like rosacea and acne
Digestive problems
Weight gain
Syndrome X

As you can see, leaky gut symptoms aren’t unique. They’re shared by other problems, too. And tests often fail to uncover a definite cause of the problem. That can leave people without a diagnosis and, therefore, untreated. Food sensitivities, inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune disease, thyroid problems, malabsorption, inflammatory skin conditions, mood issues, those are all warning signs somebody has leaky gut. And what you want to do now is start taking steps to fix leaky gut as soon as possible.

There are 4 main causes of leaky gut which include:
Poor diet
Chronic stress
Toxin overload
Bacterial imbalance
