What is Leaky Gut?
Leaky Gut, also known as increased intestinal permeability, is a condition that causes gaps in the intestinal walls to loosen. This condition may allow substances such as bacteria, and undigested food particles and toxins to exit your intestinal walls and enter your bloodstream. When these substances enter the bloodstream, your immune system will attack these foreign bodies as well as your body. This can lead to issues that not only cause digestive issues, but also affect your skin, focus and overall immunity.

- Skin problems such as eczema and acne.
- Development or worsening of seasonal allergies
- Mood disorders, brain fog, and anxiety
