How To Repair Leaky Gut

Written by Steve Collins on June 10, 2024

Leaky gut syndrome, also known as increased intestinal permeability, is a condition where the lining of the small intestine becomes damaged, allowing harmful substances such as toxins, microbes, and undigested food particles to leak into the bloodstream.

This can lead to inflammation, immune system dysfunction, and a variety of health issues. Healing a leaky gut requires a multifaceted approach involving diet, lifestyle changes, and targeted supplementation.

1. Diet Adjustments: The Foundation of Healing

When healing leaky gut, it's important to eat quality, traditionally used foods. Think to yourself, what would my great grandmother have eaten? Those foods are usually going to be a great place to work from.

Start by eliminating inflammatory foods that can exacerbate gut damage. These include refined sugars and fats (like seed/vegetable oils), processed foods, and artificial additives.

Focus on a nutrient-dense diet rich in whole foods.

Incorporate plenty of well cooked vegetables, fruits, proteins, eggs and traditionally used fats like animal fat, extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil.

Collagen rich foods like bone broth are particularly beneficial for gut healing.

Our favourite foods whilst healing your gut are:

PROTEINS: Collagen, gelatin, bone broth, l-glutamine, grass-fed animal meats, casein protein, eggs.

FATS: Extra virgin olive oil, animals fats like tallow, ghee and butter, coconut oil, macadamias.

CARBS: Tropical fruits like papaya, mango and paw paw. Well cooked white rice and root vegetables. Some honey and maple syrup depending on your activity levels.

2. Lifestyle Modifications: Reducing Stress and Toxins

Chronic stress is a significant contributor to leaky gut.

Implementing stress-reducing practices such as mindfulness, yoga, meditation, and regular exercise can help. Additionally, ensure you get adequate sleep, as sleep is essential for the body’s healing processes.

Environmental toxins from pesticides, household cleaners, and personal care products can also contribute to gut damage. Opt for organic foods when possible and choose natural, non-toxic products for your home and body.

3. Targeted Supplements: Supporting Gut Repair

Certain supplements can aid in the healing process.

L-glutamine, an amino acid, is particularly effective at repairing the gut lining. Zinc carnosine, quercetin, and bosweilia serrata are other supplements known for their anti-inflammatory and gut-healing properties. These ingredients can be found in Gut Repair™
