Perm A Vite, 238 g Powder - Allergy Research Group DETAILS: Hypoallergenic. Intestinal Permeability Formula. A special formulated nutritional supplement for G.I. health. Over the past several years there has been increasing appreciation of the significance of the integrity of the gut walls to the health of the entire body. A large literature now describes the phenomenon known as leaky gut characterized by abnormal permeability of the gut to potentially toxic or antigenic materials. Inflammed bowels, alcoholism, rheumatic conditions involving the gut, allergic disorders, and a variety of other problems appear to be associated with abnormal gut permeability. A variety of natural materials have been shown in experimental and clinical studies to enhance the protective and barrier functions of gut walls, and hence to diminish hypermeabiliity and bacterial translocation.
