WHAT IS LEAKY GUT SYNDROME AND WHY HAS IT BECOME SO COMMON?

One of the most discussed digestive conditions today is called Leaky Gut Syndrome.
It has been referred to as a health epidemic by many health professionals. As more
Americans are affected by poor dietary choices, chronic stress, gluten intolerances
and bacterial imbalances, Leaky Gut Syndrome has become very common.

In Leaky Gut Syndrome the mucosal lining of the intestines are damaged so that larger
undigested food particles are allowed to pass into the bloodstream. The intestinal tract
lining is naturally permeable to small molecules in order for nutrients to be absorbed
from digested food. In a healthy intestinal tract the junctions along the mucosal lining
are tight, preventing undigested food particles from entering the bloodstream.

In Leaky Gut Syndrome these undigested food particles, toxins, and bacteria enter the
bloodstream. The immune system identifies them as “foreign invaders” or pathogens
and begins to attack them. This autoimmune response can lead to digestive problems such
as gas, bloating, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). In addition, damaged mucosal
cells in your intestines do not produce the enzymes needed for proper digestion. This
can lead to malnutrition and nutritional deficiencies.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF LEAKY GUT SYNDROME?

In many cases Leaky Gut Syndrome can be caused by a poor diet. Foods with gluten,
Genetically Modified Foods, excessive sugar and alcohol can contribute to Leaky Gut
Syndrome.

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 breaks apart the
the tight junction in the intestinal lining.

Other causes of Leaky Gut Syndrome include medications such as antibiotics, over-the counter
pain relievers such as aspirin and acetaminophen which can irritate the intestinal lining
and damage protective mucous layers. These can destroy the tight intestinal junction and increase intestinal permeability that lets undigested food particles into the bloodstream.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF LEAKY GUT SYNDROME

Some of the symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome include:

  • Digestive issues such as gas or bloating, cramps, chronic diarrhea, or constipation
    and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
     

  • Headaches, fatigue, brain fog, or memory loss
     

  • Cravings for sugars or carbohydrates, food sensitivities or allergies
     

  • Skin condition such as rashes, acne, eczema or rosacea
     

  • Joint pain, arthritis
     

  • Autoimmune disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Celiac Disease or Crohn’s Disease
     

  • Depression, anxiety
