Supplements For Leaky Gut?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, so I'm not having trouble sticking to the diet (meat, veggies, eggs, veggies in a 3:1 proportion to everything else) but I'm not seeing the improvements I would like to see. I'm on an antimicrobial to deal with candida, but for leaky gut all I take is a probiotic, fish oil and some "intestinal permeability" supplement, as well as digestive enzymes.

What else can I add to heal a leaky gut?

Hello...I would say if its a leaky gut, try Symbion for life. It is a "super probiotic". It saved me. I wasn't able to eat much. It takes time, but you'll soon notice a difference, you'll be able to tolerate more with less to little stomach upsetment. Google "Symbion for life". It has all the info you'll need. Good luck

It sounds like you have many of the basics covered. Perhaps time is what you now need to give your body most. It took a long time for my digestive system to get where it is, and it's still not really where it should be. I think some vitamin/mineral supplements would be my best suggestion. For instance, vitamin C helps with the absorption of many other nutrients. The more your body can obtain the nutrients it needs to repair itself, the better able it is to do so.

How long have you been gluten-free and taking the things you listed?

Rice Guy: I spent about 8 months gluten free while taking tests, everything came back negative and I didn't improve. My standard GI said to eat whatever I wanted and see how the stress relief felt, so I did that for a few months and felt the same -bad. The GI guy said it was IBS, so I ditched him and went back to my naturopath! This is my fifth week taking digestive enzymes, Oxyperm, fish oil, my antimicrobial and a fiber supplement, and for the first 4 weeks I was taking a probiotic with breakfast and now for the 5th week I'm taking one with every meal, as well as the intestinal permeability medicine (2 at dinner.).

About that medicine: I take 2 at night, serving size is 2

500 mg L-Glutamine

250 mg NAG

133 mg Gamma-Linolenic Acid

66 mg Gamma Oryzanol

56 mg Phosphatidylcholine

I'm also on the verge of beginning a 4 day rotational diet to try and diversify what I eat and clear up any confusion about food allergies etc.

I've heard good things about Aloe juice, and I'm not sure how much L-glutamine is enough as that's supposed to be very beneficial. Anything else you can think of I would love to hear about, thanks for responding.

Bone broth is great for all the minerals and vitamins required for tissue repair. I make a huge batch, freeze it and use it in rice and anywhere that calls for bouillon.

Ferments are also helpful for recolonizing bacteria- whole food probiotics.

Zinc is necessary for proper production of stomach acid- vitamin c helps to spare enzymes made with zinc,among other functions.

I take L-Glutamine powerder form at 5grams in the morning and 5 grams at night. < 1 gram per day will stop sugar, alcohol cravings...but won't heal tissue which its most notable for. Look into this on the web for additional info..

Recommended duration is from 2-3 months daily based on most studies I've read on healing.
