Do You Have a Leaky Gut?
In the early stages of intestinal cell injury, the ability to produce enzymes necessary for digestion and absorption of food is compromised. The early stages of digestive upsets can cause problems with your health.
In recent years, the evidence has been accumulating to support the concept of the digestive issue (sometime called “leaky gut”) as the root of many debilitating symptoms and diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), type 1 diabetes, allergies, asthma and autism.
Digestive injury to the intestinal cells results in intestinal hyper-permeability or “leaky gut”, which allows pathogens, their toxins, and potentially harmful food particles to indiscriminately cross the intestinal barrier and enter the circulation.
Partially digested food begins to feed unfriendly bacteria causing symptoms such as intestinal gas, bloating, cramps, food sensitivities, constipation, diarrhoea and heartburn. Too often, these early symptoms are ignored and intestinal inflammation worsens.
Early treatment with probiotics and synergistic nutrients such as glutamine and colostrum offers significant benefits to the repair of digestive. If you have concerns about your digestive, the first place to start is to arrange your initial Digestive Health Assessment by calling 03 9382 9790.
