Intestinal Permeability ("Leaky Gut"): Causes and Treatment


Gut permeability (also called "leaky gut") causes new allergies.

Caffeine increases gut permeability, damages gastroduodenal mucosal barrier.

It says coffee here, but caffeine is probably the offender.

Good news is that the permeability fixes itself well if you quit caffeine (as the paper claims). A problem though is that the allergies stay from my experience.

The last paper claims that alcohol increases gut permeability as well.

Gluten also increases gut permeability (gliadin is inside gluten), whether or not you have celiac disease (see the Conclusions):

Candida overgrowth also increases gut permeability (see the "Discussion" part, ending of the first paragraph in the paper):

(anecdotal) The following person experienced a new allergy to a supplement due to caffeine. The symptoms were brain fogginess, dizzyness in the brain:

The following website seems reliable (it includes 211 references for the claims) for more information about gut permeability.

In particular, consuming cow's milk if you're allergic to it or taking NSAIDs, the medications for pain/inflammation, or stress increase gut permeability.

The website also has some methods of treatment with references.

I can give you a few methods myself.



Certain probiotics:

etc. Google "probiotics permeability" or something like that.

Beware that you may be allergic to some of these supplements, in which case avoid them.

I believe the treatment and the avoidance of causes only prevent further allergies. The past allergies stay. Cheers.
