Leaky Gut Test

$186.00

A powerful noninvasive gastrointestinal test assessment of small intestinal absorption and barrier function in the bowel.

Description

This Leaky Gut (intestinal permeability) test is a powerful noninvasive gastrointestinal test assessment of small intestinal absorption and barrier function in the bowel. The small intestine uniquely functions as a digestive/absorptive organ for nutrients as well as a powerful immune and mechanical barrier against excessive absorption of bacteria, food antigens, and other macromolecules. Both malabsorption and increased intestinal permeability (“leaky gut”) are associated with chronic gastrointestinal imbalances as well as many systemic disorders.

Increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut) of the small intestine can:

  • Increase the number of foreign compounds entering the bloodstream
  • Allow bacterial antigens capable of cross-reacting with host tissue to enter the bloodstream, leading to auto-immune processes
  • Enhance the uptake of toxic compounds that can overwhelm the hepatic detoxification system and lead to an overly sensitized immune system

Leaky gut has been observed in a range of disorders such as:

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Food allergy
  • Inflammatory joint disease
  • Chronic dermatologic conditions
