The gut contains 80% of your immune system. Without a healthy immune system, your body is prone to infections, inflammation and autoimmune diseases.
The digestive tract is constantly in contact with the external environment because we take food through it.

The role of the digestive tract is to take over the nutrients we take in and which are necessary for all vital functions, as well as to protect us from harmful microorganisms. When your stomach loses the ability to distinguish what is good for you and what is bad, you have leaky intestines.

It is similar with the intestines. The walls of the intestine are permeable to very small molecules such as nutrients (essential substances from food). In fact, regulating intestinal permeability is one of the basic tasks of cells located in the walls of the intestine. In sensitive people, some substances, such as gluten, for example, can cause the release of zonulin.

Zonulin is a protein that affects the expansion of the intercellular space in the intestinal wall. Other factors, such as infections, toxins, bacteria, fungi, viruses, undigested food and others, also affect the expansion of the intercellular space and thus, cause intestinal permeability.
When you have leaky intestines, various toxins, microorganisms, undigested food particles, etc. can reach your bloodstream through the expanded intercellular space and travel unhindered through your body.

L-glutamine is an amino acid that will help rebuild the lining of your intestines. The bone broth will provide you with collagen, which is necessary for recovery. In addition, omega 3 fatty acids and zinc are very effective when it comes to repairing damaged intestinal walls.
