The digestive system and leaky gut, part 2

In my previous article I talked about the importance of digestion, and what may cause leaky gut. The walls of the intestine serve as a physical barrier, separating food and the bacterial populations of the intestine from the rest of the body. Intestinal permeability, or “leaky gut”, occurs when antigens that normally can not go through the intestinal tract are able to make their way through and enter into the bloodstream.
