LGS is a medical condition that is sometimes hard to diagnose, and there are more and more American citizens diagnosed with leaky gut syndrome each year. It affects your digestive tract as well as the potential of your organism to receive nutrients from food. It happens after the intestinal wall gets damaged and starts letting through the undigested pieces of food and the undesired bacteria straight into the blood current.

A leaky gut syndrome may find its root in four major causes:

  • Bad nutrition
  • Constant stress
  • Disproportion of bacteria
  • Excess of toxins

In order to prevent and/or cure leaky gut, you should avoid consuming these foods:

  • Unsprouted grains (rich in nutrient blockers such as lectins and phytates)
  • Genetically Modified Organisms and Hybrids
  • Gluten-rich foods
  • Traditional dairy products
  • Sugar-rich foods

Some of the most common leaky gut symptoms:

  • Putting on weight
  • Swelling
  • Migraines
  • Tiredness
  • Problems with digestion
  • Unexpected reaction to some foods
  • Thyroid issues
  • Skin conditions (like acne)

Essential tips for curing leaky gut:

  • Exclude foods that harm gut from your diet (grains, GMO products, sugar, traditional dairy products, etc.)
  • Exchange them for foods that can repair your gut (sprouted seeds, broth, coconut, fermented vegetables, raw dairies)
  • Apply particular supplements (probiotics, DGL, quercetin, digestive enzymes, L-Glutamine)

Establish balance again using probiotics
