Leaky Gut (or intestinal permeability) is becoming well known as the condition whereby the lining of the gut becomes inflamed and the tight junctions between the cell walls start to come apart (or leak) allowing particles such as undigested nutrients, toxins, bacteria, and wastes to “leak” through the intestines and flood into the blood stream.
These foreign substances enter the blood and cause inflammation all over the body and can lead to an autoimmune response in the body including inflammatory and allergic reactions including digestive issues, allergies, food intolerance, headaches, joint pain, skin conditions, and many many other symptoms.
