Gut Health

Male Scientist

Intestinal hyperpermeability or informally known as "leaky gut" is a common occurrence that can wreak havoc on your health and causes many unwanted symptoms such as;

  • Abdominal bloating/gas

  • Weight gain

  • Sugar cravings

  • Constipation or diarrhea

  • Nutritional deficiencies, anemia

  • Fatigue

  • Poor immune function or autoimmune disease

  • Skin rashes, eczema, psoriasis

  • Headaches, brain fog

  • Arthritis, joint pain

  • Depression

Leaky gut occurs when tight junctions in the gut lining, which control the passage of nutrients and other important molecules into the bloodstream, break down allowing substances to pass through that shouldn't. This triggers an immune response causing inflammation in the gut. It also causes a systemic reaction in the body due to the now unwelcomed invaders traveling via the bloodstream and circulating throughout the body. This can lead to digestive and other issues that may be diagnosed as, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, or Crohn's disease.
