Leaky gut is more common than you would think. Read on to see if you have some of the many symptoms and learn what you can do about it!

Leaky gut syndrome is a condition in which the tight junctions between cells of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract become damaged, allowing substances like toxins and bacteria to “leak” through the GI tract and into the bloodstream. This can cause a variety of symptoms, including digestive issues, food sensitivities, fatigue, headaches, skin problems, and more. Leaky gut syndrome can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor diet, stress, and infections. Treating leaky gut syndrome typically involves dietary and lifestyle modifications, as well as supplements, to help heal the gut lining.

Leaky gut syndrome can cause a variety of symptoms and can be a contributing factor to many chronic health conditions. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the potential signs and symptoms of leaky gut syndrome and to seek treatment if necessary. The symptoms of leaky gut syndrome can vary depending on the individual and the underlying cause. Common symptoms include digestive issues such as bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea; food sensitivities; fatigue; headaches; skin problems such as eczema; joint pain; and mood issues such as depression and anxiety. Improving gut health can help reduce many of the symptoms associated with leaky gut syndrome and improve overall health and wellbeing.

Leaky gut syndrome can be treated through dietary and lifestyle modifications, as well as supplements. Generally, it is recommended to reduce or eliminate processed and sugary foods, as well as foods that you may be sensitive to, and to eat a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, and high-quality proteins. Supplements such as probiotics, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, and glutamine can also help to support gut health. Oftentimes patients do not know where to start. Not every food or supplement is right for every patient. Getting a baseline is the key, which is why we at Longevity Lab encourage our patients to get blood work at least every 3 to 6 months depending upon the severity. It makes it hard to chart progress if you do not know where your starting point is. In addressing Leaky Gut being proactive is the key to your overall gut success and immunity and absolutely testing for inflammation, the first stage of any Leaky Gut scenario sets patients up for true gut success.
