What causes leaky gut:


Leaky gut, or intestinal hyperpermeability, occurs when the tight junctions of the intestinal wall become loose, allowing harmful substances to enter the bloodstream.



So what causes leaky gut?

  • Stress: stress weakens your immune system and allows for infections and inflammation in the gut

  • Toxic overload: we come into contact with over 80,000 chemicals and toxins every year. The worst offenders are antibiotics, sugar, the pill, pesticides and pain killers.

  • Dysbiosis: with frequent travel it is easy to disrupt the balance between good and bad bacteria

  • Poor diet: the most common foods that cause damage to your intestinal lining are un-sprouted grains, gluten, sugar, alcohol and dairy.
