Everywhere you look someone is talking or writing about “leaky gut”, especially how to determine if you have it (usually a reference to Googling symptoms) and how to fix it.
While symptoms and resolution of any digestive problem are important, it’s jumping the gun a bit if we don’t really understand what leaky gut is.
In this video, I define what leaky gut is and how it functions differently from a healthy small intestine. Once you understand what is happening, you will also understand why resolving a leaky gut is so important to your overall health.
Now that you know what it is, check out Part 2 in which I tell you what causes it, what the symptoms are and how you can resolve it. After all, in addition to digesting and absorbing all the different types of nutrients, your intestine is a barrier between you and the outside world so we want it functioning at its best.
