Strengthen the Gut

6/3/2021

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is simply the tube running through the body, starting at the mouth and ending at the anus. The complexity of functions that the GI tract serves to the body’s whole health and wellbeing are profound.  

Many metabolic disorders, autoimmune diseases, and cognitive dysfunctions stem from gastrointestinal disturbances or imbalances; hence Hippocrates observation more than 2,500 years ago is spot on…”All disease begins in the gut.”

While one would believe that the purpose of the GI tract is the absorption of nutrients, it is truly a gateway to the outside world. The gut is constantly serving as a barrier to the bad and a gateway for the good; interacting with the outside world the gut determines what enters and what passes. The barrier function is to prevent pathogens, antigens, parasites ,toxins, and other foreign bodies as the tight junctions are like a fence or a barrier to infiltration - Learn more about the tight junctions important role in The Brain – Gut Connection.  While this barrier isn’t 100% impermeable, when the gut is unhealthy, the defenses of the tight junctions are weaker and the barrier is easier to overcome.

When the barrier is compromised, the immune system has to work harder and respond to more foreign bodies – Learn more about how the immune system works here. This more permeable barrier is Leaky Gut Syndrome. Leaky Gut is a digestive disorder where the tight junctions, the space between digestive tract lining cells, are compromised due to inflammation. With Leaky Gut, the digestive tract linking isn’t an effective barrier as things that normally wouldn’t pass through now can.
