Even if you have increased intestinal permeability, separating the symptoms of intestinal permeability or leaky gut can be challenging from the inflammation that comes before you have a full-blown leaky gut. With your gut lining more permeable, bacteria in your gut can cross your intestinal barrier, harming your body and creating inflammation. For example, scientists have found that bacteria traveling from the gut to the liver may also contribute to liver disease.

The erosion of your intestinal lining, which is the cause of leaky gut, giving you intestinal permeability, has common gastrointestinal symptoms, such as abdominal pain, food sensitivity, bloating, and indigestion. These symptoms can be prevalent in different gut health issues. Nevertheless, all these symptoms can injure your intestinal lining, creating inflammation and pain in your gut. 

To Heal Leaky Gut, Change Your Diet

Changing your diet is essential to healing a leaky gut. If you know you have a leaky gut, make sure to follow a diet such as the FODMAP diet, which is a low-inflammatory food diet. Following this diet ensures that your food doesn't worsen your leaky gut. When your gut inflammation is reduced, your intestinal lining has a chance to heal.

In addition to eating a low inflammatory diet, you can also consider a few supplements to aid in the healing and repair of leaky gut. When considering supplements, talk to a qualified healthcare provider to ensure the supplements you take to suit your body and health issues.

Lastly, try only one or two supplements at a time to understand which supplements give you the best results. If you start taking multiple new supplements at once, you won't be able to tell which ones are making you feel better.
