Repair Leaky Gut with Permeable Gut Formula

Repair Leaky Gut with Permeable Gut Formula

 Leaky gut syndrome is a condition whereby the delicate lining of the digestive tract (specifically the small intestine) becomes damaged and incompletely digested proteins, toxins and bacteria can then cross the now damaged intestinal walls. 

Problems ensue because a very large part of our immune system immediately surrounds the intestinal walls, standing at the ready to combat any type of foreign invader.  When proteins, toxins or bacterial fragments pass through a leaky gut, the immune system is activated and this in turn can lead to systemic symptoms like fatigue, skin irritations, brain fog, headaches, joint pain, asthma and other conditions.

Keep in mind all of this occurs on a microscopic scale - with leaky gut, a person doesn’t have actual holes in the gut lining, but rather the normally tight cellular layers become thinner, allowing those items to cross the wall more readily.

Treating leaky gut involves  identifying and removing food sensitivities (normal foods may be irritating and inflammatory to your GI tract), removing processed foods, alcohol and minimizing antibiotic and non-steroidal anti-anti-inflammatory drugs for starters. Here's more about leaky gut syndrome and how to treat leaky gut syndrome.

After the diet has been cleaned up, repairing the delicate gut lining begins the next phase of treatment.  Permeable Gut formula is a comprehensive collection of the top botanical medicines and nutrients for healing damaged GI tracts.

Best Uses for Permeable Gut Formula:

  • Repairing leaky gut
  • Prevent abdominal bloating
  • Improves digestion
  • Limits development of food sensitivities


Here’s How Permeable Gut Formula Works:

Permeable Gut Formula L-Glutamine is a primary fuel source for the cells lining the gastrointestinal tract. It is also thought to play a regulatory role in the intestines by affecting how cells divide and mature. Bodily glutamine stores can become depressed after major physical stressors; glutamine depletion can cause breakdown of the GI tract lining.

Curcumin is one of the major active compounds derived from the spice Turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory activity, inhibiting several pro-inflammatory enzyme systems (cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), prostaglandins and leukotrienes). Curcumin has been shown to increase healing rates in study subjects suffering with stomach problems.

Gamma oryzanol is derived from rice bran oil and has specific GI anti-inflammatory effects.  It’s been shown to heal gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) and provide relief from discomfort in studies.

Okra is a mucilaginous herb, meaning it helps form a protective, soothing film over mucous membranes.  It also acts as a binder of cholesterol and toxins found in bile acids, helping to remove them from the body. It provides both soluble and insoluble fibers, which provide fuel for health bacteria (probiotics) in the gut as well.

Marshmallow Root and Slippery Elm are mucilaginous herbs that also help protect, soothe and repair inflammed, ulcerated and otherwise damaged gut mucousal tissue.

Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL) is licorice with the substance glycyrrhizin removed.  Glycyrrhizin is removed because after longer dosing, it can lower potassium levels and increase blood pressure.  Once removed, licorice root has anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and soothing properties for the gut tissue.

Goldenseal Root is supplied in this formula for its broad antimicrobial properties.  It can also be effective against fungi, protozoa and mycobacteria. It serves to minimize the damaged gut’s exposure to microbes, thereby lowering the chances of these organisms further damaging the gut.

Dandelion Root helps to improve bile flow from the liver which in turn helps move the digestive process along. It has mild diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties. Its bitter compounds can help stimulate digestion and appetite.


Leaky gut is a complex condition and requires a broad dietary overhaul as well as treatment with compounds that can soothe, repair and heal the delicate gut lining.   Permeable Gut formula is a convenient way to dose the most effective natural medicines that restore normal gut function and health.
