What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Leaky gut, also known as intestinal permeability, is when your intestinal wall has become compromised due to lifestyle, genetics, or environmental factors causing digestive issues. When your intestinal lining is working correctly, it functions as a tight barrier that controls what is let into your bloodstream. An unhealthy gut lining may have larger holes and openings, allowing harmful toxins, partially digested food particles, and bad bacteria to enter your bloodstream and cause many health problems.

Several things may cause inflammation in your gut. One may be genetics making you more susceptible to gut complications, and others, such as common lifestyle choices like the standard American diet, can lead to poor gut health. Below are some of the main drivers of Leaky Gut Syndrome.

  • Poor diet with too much sugar and processed foods
  • Candida overgrowth
  • Heavy alcohol use
  • Chronic stress
