7 Food Additives That Trigger Leaky Gut!

Food Additives That Trigger Leaky Guts That Few Know About Because, if you’re dedicated to curing leaky gut and autoimmune diseases , I need you to know about a recent study that identified seven food additives that trigger leaky gut, or at least contribute to the problem.

So what exactly is leaky gut? Known in the medical literature for over 100 years as “gut leaky”, in my opinion, many modern doctors do not know how to identify and treat leaky gut. This is a shame because it is believed to be the root of many diseases.

Signs and symptoms of a leaky gut:

Signs and symptoms of a leaky gut include inflammation, joint pain, inflammatory skin disorders and rashes, food allergies and sensitivities, as well as other types of health issues.

According to a study published in a Norwegian medical journal, this process “is implicated in the onset of the disease and includes several acute and chronic pediatric problems that likely have their origin during childhood” and has been linked to:

Basically, the results of leaky gut and autoimmune diseases arise when the tight junctions that protect the intestinal lining are damaged. This allows bacteria, toxins, allergens and carcinogens, which normally protect the gut and immune system, to escape and trigger autoimmune diseases .

Food additives that trigger leaky gut :

1. “Meat tail”

Also known as microbial transglutaminase, this special enzyme serves to hold proteins together. (Hence the name meat glue.) It is often used in imitation crab meat, fish balls, and also to improve texture in meats such as ham and surimi. It is also approved for use as an enzymatic binder to form smaller cuts of meat into a larger portion.

2. Sugars:

Glucose was found to increase gut permeability and produce changes in the distribution of the key protein responsible for tight junction in the human cell line Caco-2, indicating intercellular leakage.

We now know the sugar industry scandal that involved tricking people into thinking that sugar was healthier than fat. This demonized natural, healthy fats and increased the use of sugar in processed foods . As always, use my tricks to kick sugar addiction and drastically reduce sugar, and you will be much healthier.

3. Sodium:

A high-salt diet does more than affect your heart. Turns out it’s also to blame for loosening those tight junctions that keep your bowel function strong and healthy. Interestingly, a high-salt diet may be behind a spike in autoimmune diseases.

However, too much salt can actually affect your innate immune system, causing macrophage dysfunction. We need a little salt to live, but in general, the world is consuming more and more.

4. Emulsifiers:

You may have heard that a common food additive is linked to colon cancer . Emulsifiers like polysorbate 80 and carboxymethylcellulose (commonly known as cellulose gum) are used in foods such as non-organic pickles, frozen baked goods, non-dairy creamers, and more. They have also been linked to metabolic dysfunction, obesity and inflammatory bowel disease.

5. Organic acids:

Researchers investigated the potential risks of using these solvents in food and beverages. Specifically, alcohol and its metabolites impair the junction barriers that prevent intestinal leakage. In addition, researchers say that acetaldehyde, which is produced by the liver’s processing of alcohol and is a contributing factor to hangovers, may be the culprit.

Acetaldehyde is also found in fermented foods  , but in my opinion I have seen great improvements in the intestines when patients work with fermented foods in their diet. (Of course, you can experiment to see how your body feels with or without fermented foods .)

6. Gluten:

I always recommend people with leaky gut to remove gluten and grains from their diet . (Once your gut is healthy again, you can add back the beans that have been fermented and sprouted for occasional consumption.)

They noted increased gut permeability when immune cells are exposed to gliadin. (Gliadin is a class of proteins in wheat and is a component of gluten.

Gives bread the ability to rise during baking.) Gluten often hides in unexpected places, including sauces, where wheat flour is used as a thickening agent. And please note that even organic wheat contains gluten.

7. Nanometric particles:

Nanotechnology is a booming business in the food world. A business worth more than $7 billion, to be exact. And estimates suggest that 40% of food industries are using it.

Furthermore, the use of nanoparticles in food packaging and in food itself is skyrocketing in America. Nanotechnology encompasses taking a material and making it artificially small, with dimensions between 1 and 100 nm.
