Leaky Gut Syndrome

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome and Why has it become so common?

The intestinal tract lining is naturally permeable to small molecules in order to absorb nutrients from digested food.  In Leaky Gut Syndrome this intestinal mucosal lining is damaged so that larger undigested food particles are allowed to pass into the bloodstream.  Leaky Gut is caused by gluten, GMO foods, dairy products, excessive sugar and alcohol, antibiotics and some prescription drugs.  Leaky Gut Syndrome compromises you small intestine's ability to absorb nutrients, keeping you from getting the full nutritional benefits of food.

The presence of gluten in our diet has increased significantly in the last few decades.  Gluten can cause the intestinal cells to release zonulin, a protein that can break apart the tight junctions in the intestinal lining.  This alone has caused the large increase of Leaky Gut Syndrome.  But just as important has been the introduction of genetically modified foods into our diet call GMO's.  GMO foods are now found in most food groups and there is evidence that they can create Leaky Gut.

When undigested food particles, toxins, and bacteria enters the bloodstream, the immune system marks these "foreign invaders" as pathogens and begins to attack them  This can lead to digestive problems such as gas, bloating, and IBS.  Other symptoms of Leaky Gut include allergies, fatigue, skin issues such as eczema, and Candida.
