Top 7 Foods for Getting Rid of Leaky Gut | Dr. Josh Axe

Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine. In this video I'm going to share with you
the top seven foods for healing leaky gut along with the healing leaky gut diet. Leaky gut syndrome is where you get something
called intestinal permeability. That's where certain proteins like gluten
start to leak through your intestinal wall, get in your blood stream, and then cause systemic
body wide inflammation. It can cause inflammation of your thyroid
causing Hashimoto's disease.

It can cause inflammation of your large intestine
and cause inflammatory bowel disease. It can also cause inflammation causing food
sensitivities and different reactions in your body. By consuming these seven foods it can help
you heal leaky gut syndrome for good. Let's start off here with the number one food,
and that's bone broth. Bone broth has traditionally been made by
boiling or cooking the ligaments of chickens as well as the bones and also bones from beef. What happens is certain amino acids and minerals
come out into the liquid. The most powerful amino acids are proline
and glycine. We know proline is a precursor to collagen. We know when your body stops producing collagen
over time it's what causes you to get wrinkles and your skin to get loose. It's a similar thing with your digestive tract. We want that tight. We want those tight junctions tight in your
gut. We don't want things like gluten getting through. Proline and glycine, the amino acids in bone
broth, help tighten it up and can help repair the damaged gut lining.

Drinking bone broth every day is incredibly
healthy for healing leaky gut syndrome. Also, bone broth contains L-glutamine, another
amino acid that really works as a Band-Aid for your small intestine and colon and really
helping protect those areas. Again, bone broth, number one healing food
for leaky gut. I recommend eight ounces two times a day. The best thing to do is get a big Crock-Pot
and make real bone broth soup and drink that several times a day. The second healing food for leaky gut syndrome
is kefir or homemade yogurt. We know fermented dairy is the most probiotic
rich super food in the world today. If you can be getting goat's milk kefir or
homemade yogurt… Homemade yogurt should be fermented 24 to
29 hours. We know it contains specific types of probiotics
such as lactobacillus which have been shown to crowd out bad bacteria such as different
types of yeast and fungus and really help increase the probiotics in the gut. Listen, most people today have a severe probiotic

If you're going to heal leaky gut, you have
got to restore any probiotic deficiencies. Again, kefir, goat's milk kefir and yogurt
are the best. You can find those at your local health food
store. The third healing food for leaky gut syndrome
are fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut, kimchi, kvass, and coconut kefir as well. Different types of fermented vegetables, especially
sauerkraut, are greatly beneficial because it contains bacillus subtilis. Bacillus subtilis is a soil based probiotic. It also contains lactobacillus plantarum probably
in the largest levels. These probiotics in a similar fashion crowd
out bad bacteria. Also, they're at a certain Ph. You know that really sour, tart taste when
you're tasting sauerkraut? Those are organic acids. Those acids really help feed and fuel probiotics
in the gut.

It's not just about getting more probiotics. It's about creating an environment where probiotics
can flourish. Again, getting sauerkraut and kimchi and fermented
vegetables in your diet is a great way to establish that good bacteria in the gut. The number four super food for healing leaky
gut is coconut products, especially coconut oil. Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties. It contains the fatty acids lauric acid, capric
acid, and caprylic acid. These are known as medium chain fats or medium
chain triglycerides.

They kill off bad bacteria in the gut. They are very easy to digest. For that reason, all other oils in your diet
should really be replaced with coconut oil when it comes to cooking. Again, coconut oil is great for healing leaky
gut. The number five super food that can help you
heal leaky gut is going to be wild caught fish, especially salmon. Salmon, mackerel, wild caught tuna, I'm going
to emphasize wild here, not farm raised. Wild caught fish is loaded with omega-3 fats
which we know reduce inflammation, which is critical when it comes to overcoming leaky
gut syndrome. I recommend wild caught salmon three times
a week. Typically just baked in the oven is one of
the best ways to do it. We know salmon is loaded with omega-3 fatty
acids, and other fish are good as well, real tuna that's wild caught, and mackerel is great. Again, some fatty fish is the easiest source
of protein to digest as well as it's packed with those omega-3 fatty acids.

The number six super food for healing leaky
gut, and this actually is with a disclaimer, it's not for everybody, is sprouted flax seeds. We know flax seeds are loaded with fiber. Fiber, especially that soluble fiber found
in flax, can help in growing good bacteria in the gut. Again, sprouted flax seeds, not regular flax
but sprouted flax that have been soaked. Just one tablespoon a day is all you need. One tablespoon a day as part of a super food
smoothie with some collagen powder is great for leaky gut. If you have a very sensitive digestive system,
you may not be able to do the flax at first, but long term it's a great sprouted seed for
healing leaky gut.

Last but not least is steamed vegetables or
vegetables made in the Crock-Pot. Broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, and
squashes like butternut squash are great to do in the Crock-Pot. They nourish the spleen. They nourish the colon, especially cauliflower
cooked. It's very good for your immune system. Again, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, squashes,
those vegetables either steamed or cooked in a Crock-Pot are another food for healing
leaky gut. If you're ready to heal leaky gut syndrome
for good, incorporate those seven super foods on a daily basis, and eliminate all the other
stuff. Eliminate grains. Eliminate processed foods. Really stick to those seven only if you want
to heal leaky gut. If you want to learn more about leaky gut
