Ever heard of the term “Leaky Gut”?  It has been receiving a lot of attention lately but what actually is it and what’s the hype?

Leaky Gut plays a significant role in not only gastrointestinal related conditions such as Coeliac disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, but it has also been linked to a range of other conditions including arthritis, allergies, autism, asthma, diabetes, mental illness as well as a host of autoimmune diseases.

Leaky gut syndrome happens when your intestinal lining has become damaged as a result of inflammation or irritation.  Drugs, alcohol, gluten and processed foods can damage the lining of the gut wall.  Leaky gut can also result from internal toxicity due to an imbalance of bacteria and yeast, which we call “dysbiosis.”

When this happens, the lining of the gut becomes full of tiny holes, like swiss cheese, or a leaky bucket.  In many places, the lining of the gut is just one cell thick, so leaky gut or “intestinal permeability” can easily happen.

This is a problem because food particles and toxins from the gut are released into the bloodstream, triggering an immune response.  A huge toxic burden is imposed on the liver.  The liver is overwhelmed by digestive by-products, toxins and inflammatory irritants, and other organs are affected as well.

If you have been dealing with a ton of food sensitivities, and seem to be getting more sensitive to more foods all the time, it could be leaky gut.  Instead of doing extensive allergy testing, we would recommend healing the gut, and sealing up those leaks. The food is not the main problem:  the problem is that the food you eat is escaping into the bloodstream and triggering an immune response.

1. Glutamine

Glutamine is key for helping to heal the lining of the gut.  Aloe Vera is a good choice, as it contains this to help to heal the gut.  Other source are beef, pork, chicken, fish, dairy, all beans & legumes and leafy green vegetables.  The glutamine will help to heal the lining of the gut.

2. Cleanse

The Cleanse is a good protocol if you have leaky gut for a few reasons:

  • The Cleanse will help you take out the foods that are most irritating to the gut such as gluten, sugar, alcohol and processed foods

  • The Aloe Vera on the Cleanse will help to get rid of bad bacteria

  • The digestive enzyme in the Aloe Vera will help you to break down the food you are eating

  • The liver support in the shakes and herbal tea will help to support the liver from the burden of excess toxins

3. Probiotic

A strong probiotic is also essential for supporting your immunity and restoring the balance of good bacteria in the gut.

Aloe Vera is an excellent Probiotic for the gut.

Have you ever been so impressed with something that you couldn’t wait to share it with someone??  Well, that’s me right now!! The past few months I have been on this mission to find something that gives natural benefits as apposed to the usual ‘bodybuilding/weight loss’ supplements that I have been using since I started my whole health and fitness journey.  My searching has led me back to this amazing plant!!

For thousands of years, people have been using Aloe vera leaves for healing and softening of skin.  In fact, Aloe has been the “go to” treatment for many things such as constipation and skin disorders.  This was one of many reasons why I took it upon myself to look into it. 

Drinking Aloe juice has many benefits that helps with the body’s every day functions and provides you with tons of benefits.  However, to get the benefits of Aloe juice, the Aloe leaves need to go through a whole process to make sure that it lives up to standard.

Aloe vera juice is made by crushing or grinding the entire leaf of the aloe vera plant, followed by various steps to purify and filter the liquid. With a mild, tolerable flavour, the juice mixes easily into smoothies and shakes. This makes aloe vera juice a practical whole food supplement.

Finally, aloe vera promotes a healthy gut environment by supporting the probiotic colonies that live there. Probiotics are living organisms and require nutrients called prebiotics. Aloe is a great source of prebiotics that feed good gut bacteria.

After being fortunate enough to use these aloe products, including the Forever Aloe Vera Gel drink which I take in the morning before breakfast daily,  for a few weeks now, I can honestly say that it is the best decision I have made and it is definitely something I am investing in for ME.

Go ahead & invest in your health with these amazing natural products!!
