Do you have a leaky gut?
A leaky gut is also known as autointoxication. They’re both the same thing and more common than you might think.
Autointoxication involves poisoning by a toxin that’s formed within the body itself. When you’re not digesting food properly, that food has to go somewhere. It can’t stay in the stomach forever. It needs to move elsewhere.
Just because you’re eating healthy food, doesn’t mean that your body receives any of the nutrients you’ve consumed. Improper digestion leads to a string of symptoms, including a leaky gut, which involves food particles passing down the alimentary canal. From there, they form irritable chemicals that eventually lead to partially digested food particles entering the blood – which is definitely not what you want.

So, what can be done about autointoxication? Is there a way to repair the issue and heal a stressed gut? Let’s find out…
What is the alimentary canal?
The alimentary canal runs from the mouth to the anus. It’s the passage with which food travels through the body during the digestion process. Inside the alimentary canal, running the entire length of the G.I. tract, is a mucosal lining.
It’s important that the mucosal lining of the G.I. tract remains unharmed. However, if you’re not digesting food properly and you’re constipated, for example, you’re more likely to have fecal material in your colon, where he dries and hardens against the wall.
When fecal material is not being excreted properly and it’s attaching itself to the walls of your colon, it becomes toxic. In response, your body wants to get rid of it. It’s not meant to be there, it’s a ‘foreign body’ and must be eliminated in any way possible. And, since you’re constipated, things are moving slowly, which gives autointoxication the perfect opportunity to swoop in and start causing havoc.
The body tries to break the stubborn fecal material down and as a result, it gets absorbed into the blood, liver, and kidney’s for elimination.
Is autointoxication happening to your body?
So, how can you tell if autointoxication is happening to you?
Well, the biggest sign is constipation. Other symptoms include fever, redness, pain, swelling, and stiff and achy joints are all classic forms of inflammation, which is strongly linked to autointoxication.
If you’re not effectively digesting food, the fecel material that’s building up in your body starts to wear away at the mucus lining of the alimentary canal. The villi in your intestines should be tightly formed together. However, when they separate, it allows food particles to leak out and enter the gut.
Once undigested food particles enter the blood, the body can’t use it as food. So, what does it do instead? It lifts its metaphorical swords and starts to attack it because it sees the food particles as an alien invader.
The result is a leaky gut.
Just because you’re eating food, it doesn’t mean that your body’s cells receive any of the nutrients, minerals, proteins, vitamins, and so on from that food. When you’re not digesting food properly, your body cannot get those things because a lot of it can still be stuck in the alimentary canal.
How to get food past a compromised gut
So, how can you get food past a stressed or compromised gut?
The answer is enzymes. Only enzymes can get food past a stressed gut. You don’t have to put up with a leaky gut or autointoxication forever. You can clean up the gut by taking enzyme supplements to aid digestion and restore normal digestive function.
Smart Carb is my own digestive enzyme that helps to break down food into smaller molecules for digestion so that nutrients can be received in a beneficial manner. The ingredients in Smart Carb enhance digestion and help move vital nutrients past a stressed digestive system.
