Food Trick FIXES Leaky Guts (Start TODAY)
You know how quickly gut problems can control your whole life.
Any time you’re out shopping or at dinner with friends, you find yourself scanning the room for the nearest bathroom.
You know… just in case.
But if you’re dealing with problems like diarrhea, gas, bloating, or constant fatigue, they may ALL be coming from the same condition.
It’s called “leaky gut syndrome” and it’s becoming an epidemic.
Here’s how to tell if you have it… and how some simple foods can help you fix the problem for good.
Leaky gut is just what it sounds like. It occurs when the walls of the intestines become permeable, which allows bacteria and undigested food to leak into the bloodstream… someplace they definitely don’t belong.
This can cause the body to launch an autoimmune response, which results in damaging chronic inflammation.
And, very often, leaky gut flare-ups are linked to stress.
It might seem strange at first to think of stress impacting your gut in such a serious way, but the connection between stress and your gut is undeniable.
Just think of how being nervous can make you need to use the restroom. And more and more studies are showing how poor gut health can contribute to depression and anxiety.
Stress can have a negative impact on your gut bacteria, while reduced numbers of bacteria can cause mental stress. In other words, it’s a two-way street.
The good news is that a recent study published in The Journal of Physiology has found a surprisingly simple way to help protect the gut from the damage caused by chronic stress.
The solution is found in SCFAs – short chain fatty acids.
SCFAs are produced when the gut breaks down fiber, which is found in foods like fruits and vegetables. The colon uses short chain fatty acids for energy, making them essential for gut health.
The researchers found that adding SCFAs to the guts of these mice significantly reduced the gut leakiness caused by chronic stress.
In other words, high fiber foods like fruits and vegetables help to protect your gut from the damage caused by chronic stress.
Cutting out all stress might be impossible… but adding in more fruits and veggies to your diet is not.
If you are suffering from symptoms of leaky gut, try working more of these foods into your diet over the next couple of weeks.
I’m certain you’ll notice a difference.
