What is leaky gut syndrome and how can it be stopped?

Not many people understand leaky gut syndrome or how it can be prevented, so the question that you need to ask yourself is: What is leaky gut syndrome? Well simply put this is a condition where a person suffers from hyper permeability of the gut. The problem with this condition is that the gut was intended to filter and digest foods allowing only certain nutrients into the bloodstream.

A normal gut can therefore be thought of as a functioning water filtration machine. Should the varying filters fail to do their job then people would be exposed to water still carrying toxins, bacteria and other harmful substances. One of the reasons why leaky gut syndrome may have such a profound effect on our daily functioning is because the gut is surrounded by the largest immune tissue in the body. If you think about it, this makes perfect sense as immune orientated needs would be the first to require nutrients.

With this much immune tissue surrounding the gut toxins and bacteria allowed to pass into the blood stream from a “leaky gut” go a long way in hindering the normal functioning of basic metabolic processes.  The result is that people with a noticeable case of leaky gut syndrome report symptoms such as abdominal pain, heartburn, insomnia, bloating, anxiety, gluten intolerance, muscle cramps and pains, poor exercise tolerance and food allergies. The most common components of food that can damage your intestinal lining are the proteins that are found in un-sprouted grains, sugars and conventional dairy. Not many people realise that your diet can affect you in so many different ways and as prevention is better than cure, taking a look at what you eat is the best prevention to leaky gut syndrome.
