Are NSAIDs Bad?

I get this question a lot:

“I heard NSAIDs can lead to leaky gut…does that mean that I can’t take them?”

Now, I’m not in the business of telling me what they should do. But I wanted to talk about the specifics of how NSAIDs can lead to the development of leaky gut–and therefore immune system activation–and all the negative health consequences that can bring about.

However, I’m all about the actionable items when it comes to health.

After all, there are times when taking some NSAIDs makes sense…or you don’t really end up having a choice.  So I put together a list of supplements that can decrease any damage from them and how each intervention works.  Hooray for having options!

  1. Catching up on my blog reading this Monday morning. This was really helpful! I have to take a daily 325 Asiprin, which I hate, but it’s better than the alternative. I do take a probiotics but need to look into the L glutamine and some of the other supplements. It’s just tough to know where to start.

    • Thanks! I’m glad it cleared some stuff out. I personally take 1 gram of l-glutamine twice a day when I’m doing a gut healing protocol and the DGL only a few times a week (unless I’m taking NSAIDS more often).
