Effect of Leaky Gut Syndrome
Leaky gut syndrome occurs when the intestines become inflamed and irritated as a result of becoming increasingly porous. Toxins and undigested foods are then able to pass into the bloodstream as the lining of the intestines starts to leak. The bodys autoimmune system becomes overwhelmed from the increase in toxins and therefore begins to attack healthy cells usually present in other vital organs of the body.
The effects of leaky gut syndrome give way to a whole host of gastrointestinal problems such as excessive gas or flatulence, constipation, bloating of the stomach, indigestion, diarrhea and cramping. Once the body is suffering with these symptoms there are often a series of other conditions that can come about unless of course treatment is started and further effect of leaky gut are prevented.
When toxins enter into the bloodstream several other major organs become gradually affected. Over time organs such as the liver start to degrade in the way they function and this can have serious effects on the body. The liver is known as the primary organ which removes contamination and toxins, but when the blood becomes overwhelmed with toxins the liver is then overworked and fails to work correctly. Once the livers function is affected then toxin will pass back into the blood stream as cause possible blood poisoning.
The adrenal gland, the small glands found above the kidneys, can also create issues if they are damaged as a result of a leaky gut. The adrenal glands are important for fighting against infection and disease in the body but again, when overworked they begin to malfunction. The result of poor working adrenal glands is excessive fatigue, poor digestion and an inability to concentrate or cope with stress.
