What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Bloating, headaches, fatigue, and even joint pain are all symptoms of leaky gut syndrome. But, what exactly is leaky gut?

A hyper-permeable gut, also commonly known as a leaky gut, is caused namely by irritation in the gut, imbalance in its microorganisms and micronutrients, or an underlying food intolerance. Especially when there is sensitivity to a certain food, the immune system will react and cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms.

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Bad diet
  • Chronic anxiety & stress
