Intestinal Permeability

In this first lesson, you will learn about intestinal permeability along how this is directly related to the health of your immune system. 

Intestinal permeability is a term describing the control of materials passing from inside the GI tract, through the cells lining the gut wall, into the rest of the body. It is normal for the intestine to exhibit some permeability, allowing nutrients to pass through the gut while maintaining a barrier function to keep potentially harmful substances from leaving the intestine.

In this lesson, you will learn the difference between a Healthy Gut and a Leaky Gut and how intestinal permeability plays a key role in supporting a healthy immune system.
