Leaky Gut Syndrome

The lining in your small intestines is only one cell thick. When this delicate surface barrier is damaged by a poor diet, inflammation, environmental toxins or overuse of medications, partially digested food particles can “leak” into your bloodstream.

This means that material in your intestines can leak into your bloodstream. When this happens it activate your immune system, causing you to become allergic to foods you normally should be able to digest. This can cause you to become sick, overweight, and even depressed. Some people even feel forgetful and describe ‘brain fog’.

It’s not just about what we eat, but more importantly what and how well we absorb nutrients. If your gut is damaged, your body cannot absorb the nutrients it needs, like omega-3 fats, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins D and B12. These key nutrients, which are critical for normal brain operation, have the most trouble being absorbed when things go wrong in the gut.

What can you do to fix leaky gut syndrome?

1) Start with eliminating gluten and dairy from your diet for 6 weeks.

2) Take UltraInflamX Plus 360 (Metagenics) every morning as a breakfast shake (2 scoops) for 6 weeks.

3) Take LactoFlamX (1 capsule daily) probiotics daily for 6 weeks.

These 3 suggestions have helped repair my clients damaged intestines and bring the digestive system and brain back into balance.
