What is the truth about GLUTEN?

Gluten may cause detrimental damage to the body regardless whether you have celiac disease or not.


Gluten can cause inflammation anywhere in the body and is very harmful l to many organs and systems, especially the digestive system. It is advisable for people who experience issues with their endocrine system, specifically the thyroid gland, to avoid gluten because of its inflammatory effect. Gluten may also cause leaky gut syndrome, a condition in which the lining of the small intestine is damaged so that toxic waste leaks into the bloodstream.


A gluten-free diet is primarily used to treat celiac disease, which causes inflammation in the small intestines. However, it may be a good idea for people over 40 years of age to consider a Gluten-free diet to avoid all these risks. The gluten-free diet excludes the protein gluten, which is found mainly in grains, such as wheat, barley, rye, and spelt. Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as glue that holds food together. Gluten can be found in numerous types of foods, even ones in which it may not be expected, such as soy sauce.


Those who are gluten-free can still enjoy a healthy diet filled with fruits, vegetables, meats, poultry, fish, beans, legumes, and most dairy products. Such ingredients are naturally gluten-free and safe for individuals who do not have allergies to these particular food groups.
