Do you struggle with brain fog, joint pain, chronic fatigue, skin issues, or food sensitivities? If you do, you may have a “leaky” gut. “Leaky gut” is the colloquial term for “increased intestinal permeability,” a physiological phenomenon in which gaps develop between the cells that line the small intestine. These gaps allow substances to escape from the gut into the bloodstream, triggering an inflammatory response by the immune system that can adversely affect nearly every organ of the body.
