Fecal Secretory IgA is a marker of gut secretory immunity and barrier function.
Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is an antibody playing a critical role in mucosal immunity and is produced in greater quantities than all other types of antibody combined.
In its secretory form, Secretory IgA is the main immunoglobulin found in mucous secretions and provides protection against potentially pathogenic microbes, due to its ability to resist degradation by enzymes and survive in harsh environments such as GI and respiratory tracts.
Secretory IgA is the first line of defense against:
Lifestyle and nutritional factors influence levels. Choline, EFA’s, glutathione, glycine, phosphatidylcholine, Vitamin C & zinc are all needed for efficient production.

Secretory immunoglobulin A deficiency is a less known but a significant aspect of having good immunity and a well-functioning digestive system, to name a few.
Low levels are commonly seen in individuals with low immune system, food allergies, bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine (SIBO), chronic Candida, coeliac disease, inflammatory bowel diseases and parasitic infections. Several studies  link stress and negative emotions with low levels of sIgA. Secretion is adversely affected by stress which is mediated by cortisol produced by the adrenal glands. Therefore low Secretory IgA levels are often present in adrenal depletion / adrenal fatigue/ adrenal exhaustion.
