Gut microbes can help to stop leaky gut
There are a few important traits that protect your gut from Inflammation.
Some gut bacteria (like Roseburia and Faecalibacterium) produce butyrate. This short-chain fatty acid is essential for your gut health.
Butyrate is the main source of fuel for cells of the gut lining, and they cannot work properly without this nutrient. It also helps prevent inflammation, regulates the composition of the gut microbiome and deters pathogens from joining the community.
When your gut microbes don't produce enough butyrate, you might experience symptoms attributed to leaky gut.
