WHAT IS GLUTEN ANYWAY?
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley that can have a profound negative impact on your health. Gluten is the “glue” that makes bread and dough sticky. It is found in breads, cakes, cookies, pies, bagels, cereals, sauces and gravies, frozen dinners, pasta, boxed rice mixes, soy sauce, beer—the list goes on and on. Eating gluten and gluten containing products, in those of us who are sensitive or intolerant to it, causes inflammation in the intestines and atrophy of the villi lining the intestines that are responsible for absorbing nutrients. This causes your body to be unable to absorb essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates and fats from the food you eat and the supplements you take. If your body can not absorb these critical nutrients, it will not function properly—regardless of how well you eat or how many supplements you ingest! If you are sensitive to gluten, this will cause your immune system to attack your body, whether it is your thyroid, your joints, your connective tissue, your intestines etc. Stated another way, gluten sensitivity leads to chronic gut inflammation, leaky gut and ultimately autoimmune disease.
