6 SIGNS YOU MAY HAVE A LEAKY GUT!!
1. Are you experiencing chronic diarrhea, constipation, gas, or bloating?
2. Are you developing skin rashes like eczema and acne?
3. Do you have nutritional deficiencies or malabsorption?
4. Do you always feel fatigue?
5. Are you constantly getting sick?
6. Do you have severe cravings for carbs?
If you’ve said yes to all of these, you may have what’s called a leaky gut syndrome. This is a condition in which the inner linings of your intestine become damaged and loosen, potentially allowing larger substances such as toxins, undigested food particles, and bacteria to enter the bloodstream. This triggers widespread inflammation and stimulates your immune system.
Studies have shown that increased intestinal permeability may be connected to various chronic and autoimmune conditions such as Celiac’s, Type 1 Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, as well as other diseases such as migraines, food sensitivities, brain fog, and extreme fatigue.
