Millions of people in the world suffer from digestive issues, and sometimes, these issues can be left untreated due to misdiagnosis and a lack of clear symptoms. The truth is, the majority of the immune system is located near and around the body’s digestive system, so if your digestive tract is experiencing problems, you’ll feel it in your overall health.
If digestive problems are left untreated for some time, the human body may start to attack itself in defense, and Leaky Gut Syndrome is formed.
So what is Leaky Gut Syndrome? When digestive issues are left untreated, large gaps may arise between the cells of the abdomen/gut wall, allowing bacteria and other toxins to leak out into the bloodstream, leading to a condition that, if left untreated, can result in chronic diseases.
Nasty—toxins that leak from the gut into the bloodstream. But it doesn’t stop there. The microvilli that are in the intestine become damaged. The main purpose of the microvilli is to absorb nutrients. Without properly-operating microvilli, essential enzymes are not produced, and the digestive system’s health is compromised. Put bluntly, this syndrome can lead to malnutrition.
