I believe that I had Leaky Gut. I also had very poor digestion. I started out at 6 caps of the Now Foods Super Enzymes but am now down to 1-2 with a meal. I also no longer feel bloated and have (pardon the TMI) nice, easily passed stools. I still am allergic to eggs, nightshades, gluten, dairy and soy. Besides taking out the allergens Ive been taking l-glutamine, quercetin, turmeric, ginger and probiotics (plus drinking aloe vera juice) to heal the gut and calm inflammation. I see many sources online that suggest paths to heal the gut but I dont see any that define what a 100% healthy gut looks like. I still have some stiffness and inflammation in my body but it is drastically less then it was before.
