Leaky Gut Symptoms and How to Fix It

When food particles, toxic waste products, and bacteria pass through the lining of your intestines and flood your bloodstream, you’re likely experiencing leaky gut syndrome.

With a leaky gut, damaged cells in your intestines don’t produce the enzymes needed for proper digestion.

Helicobacter pylori or H. Pylori infection can also cause a leaky gut.

Leaky gut is a condition in which the lining of your small intestine becomes damaged. When this happens, the unwanted substances entering your blood cause inflammation, allergic reactions, and other symptoms.
