What Are The Consequences Of Impaired Digestion?
Digestive conditions cause chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal lining which breaks down and can result in “leaky gut syndrome”. Our gastrointestinal lining should only allow certain things to pass through, however a damaged leaky gut allows too many things to cross which results in toxicity, increased free radicals and oxidative stress. A leaky gut will thus result in conditions such as food allergies, auto-immune disease, Chronic Fatigue, Immune Deficiency and other systemic disorders. Some symptoms of impaired digestion are: food allergies, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, bloating, belching, gas after meals, candida infections, iron deficiency, B12 deficiency, constipation and diarrhea.
