Leaky Gut Symptoms

Posted by Shaun Elliott on

Leaky gut symptoms are usually associated with allergies, food intolerance and IBS.

Leaky gut syndrome is also known as intestinal permeability and is caused by an excess of harmful bacteria in the gut.

These harmful bacteria should be kept in check by your natural colonies of helpful bacteria or probiotics.

When your probiotics get depleted and the harmful bacteria start to thrive the condition is known as dysbiosis and can lead to leaky gut syndrome and all the symptoms mentioned above.

The harmful bacteria break down the barriers that keep food in the gut and eventually large molecules of food pass into the bloodstream where they don't belong. When that happens the body identifies the food as an invader and launches a chemical attack in the form of histamines.

It is this excess of histamines that result in allergic symptoms food intolerance and even IBS.

This is why it is important to ensure that your diet includes naturally probiotic foods or a to quality probiotic supplement to keep your body functioning effectively and comfortably as nature intended.
