Leaky Gut is Benchmark of Autoimmunity. Study: “Changes in intestinal tight junction permeability associated with industrial food additives explain the rising incidence of autoimmune disease.” 7 food additives: These additives are; sugar, salt, emulsifiers, organic solvents, gluten, microbial transglutaminase, and nanoparticles.
The blood-brain barrier (BBB) acts as a gatekeeper, protecting the brain from various toxic elements while allowing the entrance of various life-sustaining nutrients like water, glucose, amino acids, and gases that are essential for the function of the brain. It is formed by cells that line the capillaries and are connected by what are called “tight junctions,” quite similar to the tight junctions in the cells that line the gut.
wheat. NCWS subjects showed increased intestinal permeability compared to healthy subjects. ... gliadin, a component of gluten, can affect tight junction proteins ... bacteria and other microbes from the gut interior are “leaking” into the bloodstream, inducing a low-grade, chronic inflammatory response from the immune system
