Similar to NSAIDs, glucocorticosteroids are often used to reduce inflammation. However, they also reduce the secretion of protective mucus in the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, evidence suggests that they interfere with beneficial bacteria in the gut, which can also reduce the production of mucus as well as promote inflammation.

Corticosteroids can also increase your risk of deficiencies for the following nutrients:

Calcium
Chromium
Vitamin D – important because it helps regulate the function of your gut bacteria as well as helps keep inflammation under control. Animal studies have also found that vitamin D helps regulate the expression of proteins associated with the tight junctions between intestinal cells.
Magnesium
Zinc
Potassium
Folate
Vitamin A
Vitamin C

Each of these nutrients are important for gut function, digestive function, immune function, and overall necessary for the body to be able to heal from leaky gut.
