“Leaky Gut” – What Does It Really Mean?

What is “Leaky Gut”?
Hyper permeability, more commonly known as leaky gut syndrome is a common problem where there is inflammation in the pore-lining of the gut. The inflammation causes the tight junctions to open more than usual allowing toxins to leak in and out of the GI tract. This aggravates other body systems and in turn, results in systemic body inflammation. Health conditions that have been associated with leaky gut include but are not limited to: 
-Rheumatoid Arthritis 
-Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
-Brain Fog 
-Food Allergies/ Intolerances 
-Inflammatory Bowel Disease
-Irritable Bowel Disease
-Joint Problems
