Today, many people suffer from a condition they may not even know exists: “leaky gut.”
You see, the gut requires adequate amounts of essential amino acids to regenerate itself every few days. If they are lacking in the body, then the gut membrane can become more permeable, creating an increased susceptibility to “leak” fragments from proteins and microorganisms into the bloodstream from the intestines.
As you can imagine, this is very bad. Some people contract infections from their own intestines, which can lead to a blood infection, resulting in sepsis or meningitis.
The word “micronutrients” sure sounds nice.
Health marketers use it as a generic catch-all term, but usually without any specific meaning.

In today’s world, our food is processed, sugary, and nutrient-deficient from overused soils.
Environmental toxins pervade our air, water and food.
And toxic substances from cosmetic products are absorbed through our pores.
This isn’t an exaggeration, it’s actually where we’re at.
Why does this matter? Because all these toxins make their way into our gut to be dealt with. And in a normally functioning gut they would be dealt with and eliminated.
