“Leaky Gut” also known as “increased intestinal permeability” is a condition in which the intestinal epithelium (think a cellular wall, that creates a barrier between the intestines and the body) is allowing toxins and other harmful bacteria into the body due to gaps in the wall’s “tight junction” pathways.
Typically this wall allows for things such as healthy nutrients to pass through into our bodies and our bloodstream, but when the body experiences increased intestinal permeability, bad bacteria and toxins are able to flow into and be absorbed by the body. In other words, the gate that should be keeping the bad stuff out of our body has been compromised and those bad bacteria and toxins can cause harmful conditions and uncomfortable symptoms.
Research has shown that you can decrease your intestinal permeability with a healthy change in diet and exercise!
