How Leaky Gut Affects Your Brain

By Friday, 25 January 2019 04:24 PM Current | Bio | Archive

In a healthy digestive system, the cells that form the paper-thin lining of the small and large intestines are packed very closely together.

In fact, they’re so close that under normal, healthy conditions, only digested food and water can and should enter the bloodstream.

But when there is intestinal inflammation or inappropriate dietary intake, the tight junctions of the gut lining can easily be disrupted and become too porous.

Diets high in chemical-laden processed foods can damage the gut lining and force it to become more permeable.

These same factors also affect the balance of both the trillions of beneficial and harmful bacteria in the gut. When this balance is disturbed, harmful bacteria can get the upper hand and cause an increase in gut permeability.

The result is intestinal hyperpermeability, or “leaky gut.” This condition can allow toxins, bacteria, undigested food particles, and other undesirable gut contents to enter the bloodstream and circulate to the rest of the body, including your brain.

Not only does your gut affect your mental state in how you feel physically, but the reverse is also true: Your mental state affects your gut and gut health.
