A Leaky Gut

Updated: Nov 13, 2022

Gut health dictates every other aspect of your health. Some researchers refer your gut as your “second brain.” Symptoms of poor digestive health can include:

  • Reflux

  • Constipation

  • IBS

  • Bloating

  • Flatulence

  • Abdominal Pain

  • Bad Breath

  • Body Odor

These symptoms are just a few signs of “leaky gut,” better known today as malabsorption or increased intestinal permeability. For us, these are the early indicators of inflammation in progress, a microbiome unbalanced and an immune system soon to be out of control. If you have any of the symptoms listed above, you may have a leaky gut or malabsorption—and are not absorbing nutrients from your food. Healing Leaky Gut If you think you are dealing with leaky gut, there are a few things you can do to start repairing your gut.

  1. Re-evaluate your diet to take out gut-damaging foods. These include wheat and grain, sugars, conventional dairy and low-quality/conventional meats.

  2. Consider your medication. NSAIDS and antibiotics can be damaging to the gut. Of course, check with your provider before removing, if these have been prescribed for you.

  3. Heal with foods! Nutrition is one of the best ways to start to heal your gut (and your overall health). Introduce fermented foods, like kimchi or sauerkraut (not made with sugar), coconut kefir. Try an anti-inflammatory diet. Also, go for grass-fed beef and wild-caught salmon, which is high in Omega-3.Bone Broth is great for the belly as it’s amino acids, collagen and glycine can heal the cell walls.

  4. Take your Probiotics, Rebuilding the healthy gut bacteria is essential to repairing the gut wall.

  5. Other supplements that can help are digestive enzymes to help make sure all food is digested, and l-glutamine, an amino acid that helps repair the gut lining.

There are millions of people struggling with a condition called leaky gut syndrome. It is essentially the main cause of autoimmune disease today


Leaky gut can contribute to thyroid issues like Hashimoto’s disease, along with arthritis, skin issues like psoriasis and other serious health concerns.

Because glutamine is the major fuel source for cells of the small intestine, it has been shown to support intestinal health and help treat leaky gut in clinical studies.

A study published in the medical journal Lancet referenced above examined 20 hospital patients and found that supplementing with L-glutamine decreased intestinal permeability. An animal study published in the British Journal of Surgery found that L-glutamine benefits ulcerative colitis and inflammatory bowel disease.

It also shows promise for treating ulcers by providing protection from further damage. Plus, it offers a healthier, natural alternative to antibiotics for the treatment of stomach ulcers.

If, indeed, you appear to have leaky gut, L-glutamine is the No. 1 amino acid you need to help heal and repair it.
