A leaky what? Simply put, abnormal intestinal permeability (aka Leaky Gut) arises when the tight junctions between these cells loosen, allowing for large, immune-confounding particles to be absorbed into the bloodstream. These can wreak havoc on many of the body’s tissues, including the liver, the thyroid, the skin, the joints, and the brain itself. #seasonalcleanse #farmacopia

Zonulin is a protein .. that opens the normally closed spaces between cells of the intestinal lining … (these) .. garage doors .. allow transfer of nutrients and other molecules from the intestine into the body when they are open … zonulin acts as the garage door opener ... When these tight junctions are left open, molecules that shouldn’t be absorbed are exposed to the blood which can cause the body’s immune system to react.
