Gut permeability

Gut permeability (also intestinal permeability ) describes the control of material passing from inside through the mucosa (as the innermost layer of the gut wall), into the rest of the body. When the inner intestinal cell layers become loose, the gut becomes more permeable, which may facilitate the passage of bacteria and toxins from the gut into the bloodstream. This condition is commonly called „leaky gut.”
