The New Leaky Gut
How do we support a healthy GI tract membrane, which many scientists consider one of the most important membranes in our body, throughout our life?
Probiotics and gentle fibers, taken on a regular basis, create the short chain fatty acid butyrate.
Butyrate is the primary fuel that keeps our one cell layer alive and well. To produce butyrate naturally in our body we need good bacteria to ferment the fibers in our diet (Tan, 2014).
All of our Therapeutic Food Synbiotic formulas are perfect for this task: with pedigreed strains of robust lactic acid bacteria (probiotics), they are copious producers of butyric acid. Add our Be Regular for plenty of fiber that is gentle on inflamed GI membranes, and you have a great new recipe for leaky gut.
Three out of seven of our synbiotic formulas come in a powdered form with fiber to support a leaky gut.
The Original Synbiotic, Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic, No. 7 Systemic Booster. A typical daily dose for any of them is a teaspoon a day.
See Clinical Notes below for recipes.
