There are certain things that we consume that irritate the lining of the small intestine causing the very tiny absorption “holes” to get bigger. When these “holes” enlarge substances in the intestine can make their way into the bloodstream where the immune system will try to destroy them. This is an inflammatory process. Wherever these substances travel in the body the inflammation will occur.

The key to avoid a leaky gut is to avoid the medications and irritating foods whenever possible. Medications including non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (aspirin, ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve,) and antibiotics are intestine irritants.

Drinks, such as, coffee, black tea, red wine and soft drinks also have an irritating effect and should be avoided. Chocolate contains tannins which are also can cause leaky gut.

Foods that can be helpful are blueberries, raspberries, artichokes, turmeric and ginger.
