Pure Encapsulations: Intestinal Permeability, Part 1
1) Latest scientific understanding of increased intestinal permeability,
2) Classification and sub-groups of increased intestinal permeability,
3) Risk factors for increased intestinal permeability,
4) Disease and health conditions associated with increased intestinal permeability.
During this three-part series, Brad Leech will expand the clinical understanding of increased intestinal permeability, providing clinicians with the latest evidence on testing and managing an impaired intestinal barrier. In the first webinar, Brad will delve deep into the current understanding of increased intestinal permeability and provide clinicians with methods to better navigate the literature and apply evidence-based patient care. He will describe the strongest risk factors for increased intestinal permeability, mentioning the health conditions known to be associated with this intestinal reaction. Brad will educate clinicians on the clinical relevance of these risk factors and disease associations for intestinal permeability management.
