Tight Junctions Function: How the Seals Between Your Cells Help Fight Inflammation

Tight junctions are your entire body’s defense system. They latch cells together and intelligently regulate what can and cannot pass through the gut lining. Here’s what happens to that defense when exposed to glyphosate and other harmful chemicals:

  • Within 16 minutes, the continuous barrier formed by once strong tight junctions has opened up1.
