Leaky gut occurs when you have increased mucosal permeability or inflammation in lining of the small intestine.
There are a variety of factors that can contribute to leaky gut, including foods (especially gluten, genetically modified, and inflammatory foods), pathogenic microorganisms in the intestinal tract (bacteria, yeast, parasites), and certain medications (NSAIDS being at the top of the list). Increased mucosal permeability can lead to a wide range of inflammatory/autoimmune disorders and digestive symptoms. It is important to realize that you may have a leaky gut without having any significant digestive complaints. You can read more about Leaky Gut here.
The shake provides nutrients to help decrease intestinal inflammation, support detoxification, heal the intestinal lining and reestablish a healthy gut flora. The shake contains an immunoglobulin complex derived from bovine serum. These immunoglobulins or antibodies help to support immune function in the gut, as well as seal up the tight gap junctions in the intestinal lining. Although the immunoglobulin complex is derived from bovine, it does not contain the proteins found in dairy that cause an immune reaction with a dairy intolerance. Check with your provider if you are concerned about a possible reaction. The protocol is most effective when used in combination with an elimination diet.
