Endotoxin, or lipopolysaccharide, is a molecule that’s bound to intestinal bacteria. When they die, it is released. Under normal circumstances the liver and intestines can quickly eliminate it, but with polyunsaturated fat (PUFA) build-up in the liver and a lifetime of excessive fiber consumption, most people are compromised.
Low stomach acid, hypothyroidism (carbohydrate or animal protein restriction), stress, intermittent fasting, ketogenic diets, and stress all create a build-up of endotoxin.
How do you know you have endotoxin?
You experiences allergies (food or environmental), autoimmune conditions, acne, eczema, rashes, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, infertility, menstrual dysfunction, irritable bowel disorder, diabetes, arthritis, migraines, edema, insomnia, poor sleep quality, energy dips, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, psychosis, the list goes on!
The formula also contains a small amount of Fructooligosaccharides. This compound occurs naturally in plants and consists of a string of fructose units. They are very safe and stimulate the growth of nonpathogenic gut bacteria.
