If you suffer from digestive health issues, you’re not alone. A recent survey of 2000 Americans revealed that 72% have experienced some form of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms a few times a month or more. These include diarrhea, gas, bloating, stomach pain and frequent bowel movements. While this study didn’t go so far as to determine the cause, many experts agree that those symptoms closely match those associated with Intestinal Permeability – also known as Leaky Gut Syndrome. Fortunately, there are natural ways to combat Leaky Gut and possibly eliminate GI distress.
- Collagen. According to many experts, collagen is the best and most effective supplement to assist with Leaky Gut Syndrome. The unique combination of amino acids found in collagen can help by aiding in digestion, healing and sealing the gut lining and even helping to heal stomach ulcers. Bonus: Collagen is also known for supporting weight loss and joint pain relief.
- L-Glutamine. L- Glutamine has been shown in studies to protect against mucosal breakdown in the gut and help enhance its immune response.
- Digestive Enzymes. When food particles are too large to pass through, they can physically irritate the gut lining or activate the immune system. Digestive Enzymes break down food particles in to smaller, more manageable pieces.
- Probiotics. According to a recent study, (Study link) immune regulation in the gut depends on the establishment of the healthy gut microbiota (or healthy bacteria). As you may know, the factors that contribute to Leaky Gut can cause inflammation and suppress immune function. Probiotics help replenish the healthy flora (or healthy bacteria), improve immune function and help eliminate the factors that cause Leaky Gut.
