The importance of a gluten free diet
Research shows that a minimum of 1 in 133 people cannot digest the gluten protein and 1 in 7 have a “gluten sensitivity,” or wheat intolerance. For these those in this category, digestion of gluten can triggers a reaction, which interferes with proper nutrient absorption.
What are the health benefits?
The health advantages of following a gluten free diet can vary from person to person, however in general they include:
- Reduced belching
- Improved energy levels
- Improved metabolism
- Improved concentration
- Reduced inflammation
- Reduced flatulence
- Reduced bloating
- Weight regulation
- Improved nutrient absorption
Symptoms of gluten intolerance
Symptoms of gluten intolerance, although they vary, will often include abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea and/or constipation, an itchy rash, canker sores, bone or joint pain, fatigue, depression, and even sterility. If you believe you’ve got a protein or wheat intolerance or celiac disease, eliminate wheat, barley, and rye from your diet for a couple of weeks and see if symptoms improve. Consult with your care provider for testing choices.
If you feel it could help, why not try gluten free and see how much better you feel?
