Nutrition For Leaky Gut

LEAKY GUT SYNDROME (LGS) describes a cascade of disorders that stem from small intestine colitis, allowing infiltration of microbial and metabolic toxins as well as undigested food into the blood stream. These include fatigue, immune deficiency, food allergies, asthma and eczema. Leaky Gut Syndrome may be a contributor to other modern illnesses such as insulin resistance, obesity, neurotransmitter disorders, and cancer, and in fact may account for 50% of chronic illness. LGS is a modern disease with its origins in excessive antibiotics or, in children, early vaccination.

Let’s begin with understanding what to eat and what to avoid eating in leaky gut syndrome attack :

  1. This is brand new information :O and I thank you for it. I never knew such a ‘striking-named’ disorder existed. Especially that it can be a cause for Insulin Resistance (which I have).

      Nutrition is pivotal for leaky gut. That said, there are plenty of steps you can take to improve your digestive health. To combat leaky gut, eat foods that promote the growth of healthy gut bacteria, including fruits, cultured dairy products, healthy fats, lean meats, and fibrous and fermented vegetables.

      This is because tomatoes naturally produce a toxin called solanine. This toxin is believed to contribute to inflammation, swelling, and joint pain. However, no relationship between arthritis pain and tomatoes — or any of its cousins like potato and eggplant —has been found.
