In the Gut – Part 2

The Leaky Gut Syndrome

Like a trusty security guard, the thin lining within your intestinal track regulates the ins and outs to your gut, allowing nutrient absorption and preventing nasty toxic by-products to be re-absorbed into your system.

The Leaky Gut Syndrome occurs when the intestinal lining fails to function properly, thus allowing toxins to permeate the gut. This can be caused by a propagation of bad bacteria or parasites in the intestinal track and foreign chemicals like antibiotics, titanium dioxide from whitening agents, pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables and oral contraceptive pills loaded with sex steroids.

In addition, food allergies – especially towards dairy products and gluten – can cause intestinal inflammation. Apart from contributing to a Leaky Gut, we previously discussed how inflammation can also lead to cancer, obesity, arthritis, stroke and heart disease.

When the gut fails to function well, our body experiences a surge in toxin levels, which in turn causes the depletion of a potent antioxidant in our system called glutathione. Glutathione is particularly important to the gut, liver, lungs and immune system. It helps:
  • Neutralize free radicals
  • Whiten the skin naturally
  • Maintain the levels of vitamin C and E in the body
  • Regulate nitric oxide in the body to improve blood flow to the organs,  especially  the liver, heart and kidneys
  • Act like a natural chelator to remove heavy metals such as mercury, lead and arsenic, as well as other xenobiotics (foreign compounds) and carcinogens from the body.
  • Perform metabolic and biochemical tasks such as DNA synthesis and repair, protein synthesis, prostaglandin synthesis and amino acid transportation
  • Activate many enzymes in the body

What are the symptoms of a Leaky Gut?

  • Low energy levels
  • Bloated and distended belly
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Allergy symptoms like sinusitis
  • Morning sneezing
  • Eczema
  • Sore throat
  • Upper respiratory tract infection
  • Vaginal yeast infection
  • Body pain
With some simple precautions, you can take charge of your life now to gain back your health naturally.
