LEAKY GUTClick here to purchase our leaky gut treatment collection. Leaky Gut is a digestive condition in which bacteria and toxins “leak” through the intestinal wall. The mucosal barrier (the barrier between the inside of the gut and the rest of the body) is made up by a single layer of cells. This barrier is responsible for absorbing nutrients and preventing most large molecules and germs passing from inside the bowel into the bloodstream. Leaky Gut occurs when the junctions that hold the single layer of cells that line the mucosal barrier become damaged. This damage allows \u0026quot;leaking\u0026quot; of partially digested food and other toxins to pass directly into your bloodstream and cause widespread symptoms.Common Symptomschronic diarrhea, constipation, or bloatingnutritional deficienciesfatigueheadachesconfusiondifficulty concentratingskin problems, such as acne, rashes, or eczemajoint painwidespread inflammationCommon CausesPreservatives in food designed to kill bacteria in food products also kill the beneficial bacteria needed for proper gut health.
