WHAT IS LEAKY GUT SYNDROME?

Having leaky gut is essentially like having the gates broken from your intestines to your blood stream. As a consequence, many of these particles (bacteria and their toxins, incompletely digested proteins and fats, and waste) that should never have been able to enter have now gotten through. When this happens it causes inflammation and an autoimmune reaction throughout your body leading to a variety of diseases.
