LEAKY GUT SYNDROME
What is Leaky Gut Syndrome (Increased Intestinal Permeability)?
It is a condition where the intestines develop leakages allowing bacteria, toxins, and partially digested food to enter the bloodstream. The immune system then sends out antibodies to fight the foreign substances causing allergic reactions and inflammation throughout the body.
- Gum Disease
- Intestinal Gas
At this stage, Leaky Gut is causing the intestinal lining cells to break down and form large gap junctions. These gaps allow the undigested food and substances into your bloodstream instead of sending them through your digestive tract to be further digested.
