Leaky gut results in systemic damage that influences multiple systems in your body.
Because of this damage, you may experience symptoms ranging from depression to chronic constipation and much more.
The key to diagnosing leaky gut is understanding exactly how your gut interacts with hormone systems and neurotransmitters in your body.
Then you can understand how to treat the problem.
Let's discuss the most common leaky gut symptoms and how to treat them:
Can taking probiotics really help lower cholesterol and help with weight loss?

While probiotics can help both men and women, they have some particularly useful benefits to women.
Certain strains of probiotics (especially lactobacilli and bifidobacteria) can help women treat and prevent urinary tract infections, yeast infections and even help with your weight and your mood.
To get these benefits you need to be using the right type of probiotics, which is exactly what we are going to be discussing in this detailed guide:
We know that probiotics can do many amazing things ranging from helping with weight loss to treating acne and more.

Are bad bugs in your gut making weight loss impossible?
It turns out that the type of bacteria in your GI tract has a strong influence on both your weight and your ability to lose weight.
This means that putting in the "right" type of bugs in your gut can actually help with weight loss.
But how do you do this?
By using ultra potent, targeted and specific probiotics.
This isn't just opinion either, studies have shown that certain species found within specific probiotics (1) promote weight loss through multiple mechanisms which we will discuss in this article.

In fact, in order to tap into these benefits, you need to be using the best probiotic for your body.
Finding that probiotic isn't as tricky as it might seem which is what we are going to discuss in this guide:
Probiotics are a necessary part of treating SIBO.
Using the right probiotics can dramatically improve symptoms (if used correctly), or potentially make some of your symptoms worse.
Certain probiotics are better for SIBO than others, and you need to make sure you use the right ones.
The type, dose, and species of probiotic that you use at the beginning of your treatment should be different than what you use toward the end and throughout your treatment.
Read this article to determine which probiotics you should be taking, but more importantly which probiotics you should be avoiding:
SIBO, short for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, may be one of the most common gastrointestinal issues you've never heard about.
SIBO refers to an overgrowth of bacteria (often accompanied by fungal overgrowth as well) that causes a multitude of both intestinal and extraintestinal symptoms.
Symptoms ranging from depression to weight gain and fatigue - they all may be associated with changes to the microflora of your intestinal tract.
But is it common? Take a look at these studies...
SIBO has been detected in as many as 50% of patients taking acid-blocking drugs (1).
It is estimated that up to 50% of hypothyroid patients deal with SIBO in some form (2).
Somewhere between 4% and 78% (depending on the study) (3) of patients with IBS actually have SIBO.
We aren't talking about a small number of people here, we are talking about a huge portion of the population.
If you are struggling with any GI related symptom then read this list of SIBO symptoms to help you determine if you need further testing.
When it comes to weight loss there are very few supplements that actually work or that have scientific evidence proving their efficacy.
Because there are so few, certain supplements tend to stand out above the rest.
Myoinositol is one of these supplements and it works because it impacts hormones and acts as a secondary messenger in your cells.
Myoinositol not only helps with weight loss but it can also be used to treat sex hormone imbalances, PCOS and mood disorders.
