What exactly is Leaky Gut?
It’s not the most glamorous sounding condition out there but regardless of its name, it’s not something that you want to live with. Not very often diagnosed, leaky gut happens when the lining of the small intestine becomes damaged and allows undigested food particles, toxic waste products, and bacteria to leak into the bloodstream. Yuck.
As expected, when foreign substances enter the bloodstream, this can trigger an autoimmune response within the body, and the body will start attacking itself. The other main thing that happens with leaky gut is that your body can’t digest food properly or absorb nutrients.
