Gluten-free is the solution

Do you have problems when you eat some food? Symptoms such as headache, “foggy mind,” joint pain, constipation, diarrhea, numbness in the legs, arms, or fingers, a bloated stomach can be very annoying and stressful. All these problems can come from just one ingredient in the food. And that’s gluten. We are sure that you have heard a lot about gluten-free food so far, and here is why it suits certain people.

Gluten is Latin for glue. That fact alone leads us to re-think twice. Gluten is the general name for a group of proteins in cereals such as wheat, barley, and rye. Today, we are witnessing an increasing underestimation of gluten intolerance as a potentially serious health problem. Gluten problems can develop into very serious ones. The disease that gluten can cause is called celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition in which the human immune system reacts to gluten. Celiac disease is not the same as gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity.

Gluten intolerance is a condition where the human body has an adverse reaction to gluten. The immune system will identify gluten as a foreign substance and trigger an inflammatory response that damages the lining of the small intestine. It is not considered a food allergy because it is not triggered by an immune response like an allergic reaction.

Intestinal damage will lead to various symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and weight loss.

The prevalence of the celiac disease is about 1% but most people with gluten intolerance are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions like irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s disease. Gluten-free products have become more readily available on the market, and these products allow those who have an intolerance to enjoy a variety of foods that they like.

Gluten-free diets and gluten-free products have grown in popularity over the years. More and more people are choosing gluten-free lifestyles to help manage their health.

This is because they believe that gluten negatively affects their health, such as causing gastrointestinal problems or skin conditions. If you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance, then you should avoid it. The science on gluten sensitivity is evolving and we’re learning new information on the condition regularly. New research suggests that gluten alone may not be responsible for the symptoms produced by the condition currently called gluten sensitivity.
