How can bone broth soup help Leaky Gut?

Leaky gut aka Intestinal Permeability happens for many reasons. It involves the cells that line the small intestine (enterocytes) and the bonds that hold them together. When those bonds become “loose” food particles that should not pass between those cells do and enter the blood. This can lead to food allergies and other health issues. There are specific proteins and amino acids that can help to heal the gut lining. Bone broth contains many components that help to heal the gut lining and it contains about 8 grams of protein per cup!
