"Leaky Gut occurs when the lining of the gut is porous and allows food particles, bacteria, toxins, and environmental pathogens through the lining of the gut into the bloodstream."
It can have numerous causes, including coeliac disease and gluten intolerance, chronic stress, parasites and microbiome imbalance.
It can lead to many common health problems, including autoimmune conditions, gastrointestinal discomfort, fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, adrenal and thyroid issues, and even hair loss.
Leaky Gut is best addressed with diet and lifestyle changes.
