If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Probiotics may be the answer for a leaky gut. I get probiotics from Kombucha tea and fermenting vegetables.

zinc absorption is not an on/off switch.. zinc *is* absorbed when stomach acid levels are low. not as well, but it does absorb.

Effect of Intragastric pH on the Absorption of Oral Zinc Acetate and Zinc Oxide in Young Healthy Volunteers (1995)
http://pen.sagepub.com/content/19/5/393.short
The highest zinc plasma concentrations occurred with the acetate salt at a low [acid] intragastric pH, while the lowest plasma concentrations occurred with the oxide salt at a high [alkaline] intragastric pH...

Inhibition of gastric acid secretion reduces zinc absorption in man (1991).
http://www.jacn.org/content/10/4/372.short
The areas under the plasma concentration curves for zinc were significantly reduced after ranitidine (p less than 0.01), but not after cimetidine administration. Gastric acid was also reduced after ranitidine, but not after cimetidine (500 mg) administration, suggesting that gastric acid secretion plays a role in the regulation of zinc absorption in man.

hypochlorhydria from short-term omeprazole treatment does not inhibit intestinal absorption of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium or zinc from food in humans. (1995)
http://www.jacn.org/content/14/4/364.short

also. low magnesium can have an impact on stomach acid via inactivation of thiamine. I had forgotten about this study having mention of stomach acid, but it's an overall goodie:
The multifaceted and widespread pathology of magnesium deficiency (1999)
http://www.medical-hypotheses.com/article/S0306-9877(00)91133-2/abstract
"The range of pathologies associated with Mg deficiency is staggering:... deactivation (low gastric acid, behavioral disorders, etc.)..."

@Jimmy,

When I said:

1/ Stomach cannot produce acid when zinc deficient
2/ Zinc cannot be absorbed when stomach acid is low


I didn't mean that:

1/ NO acid at all is produced when deficient in zinc (actually we would die from this)
2/ NO zinc at all is absorbed when stomach acid is low (we would die from this too with no ability to fight infections!)

With our recent discussion here in mind… Dr. Alejandro Junger discusses Leaky Gut with Dr. Oz in three-part videos (4/30/2013). In Part #2, he mentions that berberine (400 mg), L-glutamine (1000 mg), and evening dose of magnesium (250 mg) will help overcome the problem.

b/c MSG came up today, I had a hunt around for info and stumbled on this related tidbit:

"Consumption of glutamine from food sources alone is not known to cause any harmful effects. Glutamine supplementation, even in doses exceeding 10 grams per day, is also believed to be safe. However, in a few research studies, patients given intravenous nutritional formulas (total parenteral nutrition) containing glutamine developed elevated liver enzymes, a sign of liver toxicity. When the glutamine was removed from the nutritional formulas, the liver enzymes of the patients returned to normal levels."

also, "Food sources of glutamine include cabbage, beets, beef, chicken, fish, beans, and dairy products." more info: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tnam ... t&dbid=122

interesting: "Glutamine is referred to as a conditionally essential amino acid because under certain circumstances [ie insufficient co-factors, I presume] the body is unable to produce enough glutamine to meet its needs, so it becomes "essential" during these times to obtain glutamine from the diet."

Can anyone tell me roughly how long it can take to fix LEAKY GUT through a yeast infection, using Xylitol or Water Kefir?
