I'm certainly not the expert here, but I have read that a lack of lactobacilus can make it difficult for your body to breakdown minerals so they can be properly absorbed. Of course lactobacilus is one of the "friendly' bacteria that are lost or depleted as a result of leaky gut syndrome (LGS).

Hi, Bob,

LGS is the most common cause of poor mineral absorbtrion in the USA since nearly 80% of the population now has at least a partial case. In the rest of the world, aging is the most common cause since at least 50% of all people over the age of 50 have less than adequate digestive enzyme production, By the age of 80, practically 100% have this problem.

In both of the above it is the enzyme deficiency that is the "smoking gun" of the problem.

Since minerals are the hardest kind of nutrient to absorb, it is no wonder that this is one of the first things to show up.

Walt
