Autoimmunity, including celiac disease, is the modern plague of the industrialized world. Because leaky gut is a major trigger for this massive health crisis, it is important to ask the question…What causes leaky gut?

The lining of your small intestine is made up of a single layer of tightly packed cells. The cells are packed tightly together to prevent large particles of food, pathogens, and other potentially harmful substances from entering your bloodstream. Under normal circumstances, water and fully digested nutrients are all that can get through.

However, if the tight junctions between the cells lining your small intestine loosen up, all bets are off. Leaky gut (a.k.a. intestinal hyper-permeability) is what scientists call it. When large undigested food particles, toxins, pathogens, and other substances that you ingest “leak” into your bloodstream. And it’s problematic because your immune system sees these things as foreign invaders. It goes into overdrive and wages a microscopic war against them. The outcome is chronic inflammation.

So if the leak isn’t plugged, it can lead to dysfunction and disease throughout your body. In fact, leaky gut is believed to contribute to the development of autoimmune diseases, including celiac disease.

So the question is…what causes leaky gut? What causes the tight junctions between the cells that line your small intestine to loosen?

Well, there’s more than one answer. And the cause may be different among individuals. However, inflammation, gluten sensitivity, and gut bacteria imbalances are common factors. Keeping these in mind, let’s explore the various known causes of leaky gut in detail…
