Leaky Gut Support Supplements
Leaky gut is a name used to describe intestinal or bowel hyperpermeability.
Leaky gut syndrome is not generally recognized by conventional physicians, but evidence is accumulating that it is a real condition that affects the lining of the intestines. The theory is that leaky gut syndrome (also called increased intestinal permeability), is the result of damage to the intestinal lining, making it less able to protect the internal environment as well as to filter needed nutrients and other biological substances. As a consequence, some bacteria and their toxins, incompletely digested proteins and fats, and waste not normally absorbed may "leak" out of the intestines into the blood stream. This triggers an autoimmune reaction, which can lead to gastrointestinal problems such as abdominal bloating, excessive gas and cramps, fatigue, food sensitivities, joint pain, skin rashes, and autoimmunity. The cause of this syndrome may be chronic inflammation, food sensitivity, damage from taking large amounts of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), cytotoxic drugs and radiation or certain antibiotics, excessive alcohol consumption, or compromised immunity.

for intestinal permeability support*
- helps maintain a healthy intestinal lining*
- promotes beneficial gut flora*
- supports gut immunity*
- helps maintain normal inflammatory processes in the intestines*
Altered intestinal microbial flora can occur alone, but it is often just one component of less than optimal gastrointestinal health, which can also include malabsorption and increased gut permeability. In the latter, molecules that would otherwise be too large to cross the gut mucosa are absorbed into the bloodstream, which can result in food allergies, autoimmune processes, and other systemic symptoms.
