This is why we need probiotics - which are the "good" bacteria.
Common signs of Leaky Gut include: constipation, diarrhea, pain, bloating & gas. Also you are likely to have poor nutrient absorption resulting in weight loss and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Also, common are frequent colds/flu, seasonal allergies, many food allergies.
So wondering how to heal/seal your gut lining? Below are some suggestions.
- Adopt a real food diet, of course, but you will need to eliminate some foods for a while. First eliminate gluten containing grains (possibly ALL grains) and then foods that you know are causing problems for you.
- Drink bone broths and/or take uspplements such as colostrum (available in many forms) and L-glutamine which will help soothe and heal the stomach lining.
- Eat probiotic foods such as sauerkraut and drink probiotic drinks (kefir) to supply your body with "good" bacteria. You can also take a probiotic supplement in capsule form in addition to eating probiotic foods. You cannot get too much of this "good" bacteria.
