SCD and GAPS Friendly Supplements for Le Leaky Gut?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 09, 2012 at 2:15 PM

Almost done with this ZC thing and then I shall be moving into the SCD/GAPS protocol to heal my digestive system. Any thoughts as to any supplements to help speed up this process?

Dr. Kruse recommend Zinc, Magnesium, and CoQ10 for what it's worth.

All of which are on the legal list here for SCD

I could stay away from supplements, but I did feel better with the fish oil and stuff, and if they help the healing process that'd be even better. I need to eat more food people!!

I believe magnesium is beneficial to take, since you may not absorb enough from food with a damaged gut. Glycine is beneficial to the gut as well

Glutamine's best source is gelatine, as in broth made including skin, feet, hooves, etc.

good, you found them!! I didnt do the supplementation because I'm overseas and can't find quality stuff that I don't react to....but i'm now increasing fermented foods and doing well with them. I think just eating good/healing foods helps alot, supplementation speeds that up (my daughter in law is also doing with some supplements and doing well now, she had a rougher start though)

Also, I'm not sure but every time I try coconut oil I seem to have a reaction to it (reflux).

Unfortunately, I don't have those books and I don't know if they'll ship in time...I don't suppose you could tell me (if it's not too many to list) what supplements they say to use?

So would Colostrum do any good then? And does it come with a cape? Also, I don't do well on CLO. I like salmon oil much better. And what in the world is N-acetyl Glucosamine?

good luck on the healing!! weeks 1-3 are rough but doable, don't go too heavy on any one thing, foods or supplements, give your body a chance to adjust slowly....or it can be painful if you have strong die off etc.. ...I'm 3 months on intro and feeling great

if you have the books for GAPS it specifically lists what you need to take and brands (and also if you are trying to get on your own what you need to get, amounts types, what to look for etc.)

Glutamine:

Proven to heal the mucosa of the gut. Used directly to do so without metabolism. Lots of people have used it and found benefit.

Beware of supplements. Many contain artificial substances that get leaky gut worse, not better. Eat real food. Supplement with chicken stock and steak.

l-glutamine is the best supplement you can take to heal your gut (obviously, along with fermented foods like yogurt if you tolerate dairy, or fermented vegetables).
