The question as to whether you are suffering from leaky gut syndrome is an important one. Gastroenterological health involves the proper functioning of a large number of bodily processes, many of which interact with each other. As part of the digestive system, the bowel plays an important role in maintaining gut health.
The mucosal barrier of the bowel allows the absorption of nutrients but does not allow other matter such as germs to pass through the cell wall. When this protective layer is compromised, some substances may leak through and enter the bloodstream. This condition is described as leaky gut syndrome.
Leaky Gut Syndrome Symptoms
Some of the symptoms associated with leaky gut syndrome include chronic diarrhea, constipation or bloating; gut pain, headaches, poor focus, tiredness, dermatological problems, and painful joints. However, these symptoms are common in several conditions, so it is important to seek consultation with a specialist.
