Leaky gut syndrome is growing rapidly and millions of people are struggling with it without even being aware of it.The cause of food allergies, low energy, pain, thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions and slow metabolism is connected with a progression of leaky gut symptoms.
WHAT IS LEAKY GUT SYNDROME?
Imagine that the lining of your digestive tract has extremely small holes in which only specific substances can pass through. Your gut lining is a barrier that keeps out bigger particles that can damage your system.
When someone has leaky gut, it means that his digestive tract has bigger holes that allow bigger particles to pass through. Some of the things that can now pass through are proteins like gluten, bad bacteria, and undigested foods. Also, toxic waste can leak from the inside of your intestinal wall into your bloodstream an
d can cause an immune reaction.
This creates an inflammation throughout your system and can cause symptoms such as:
- Thyroid conditions
- Skin issues like rosacea and acne
- Weight gain
- Syndrome X
- Food Sensitivities
- Digestive problems
The biggest warning which shows that you may have leaky gut is increased sensitivity to multiple foods. Partially digested proteins and fat can get through your intestinal lining, and make their way into your bloodstream. This can cause an allergic response that can lead to one of the symptoms mentioned above. If you don’t repair the damage in time, it can lead to more severe health issues such as inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, depression, anxiety, headaches, muscle pain and chronic fatigue. Another problem with leaky gut is that it can cause malabsorption of vital minerals and nutrients such as zinc, iron, and vitamin B12.
