Gluten sensitive? Here's why you need to cut it from your life

by , 11 July 2014

There's no reason to follow a wheat-free diet if you have no aversion to the gluten protein you find in wheat, gliadin. In fact, researchers say it could be bad for you to do so because you don't reap any of the health benefits from the wheat germ of the wheat plant, which holds all the nutrients.

But if you have a sensitivity to wheat, give it a miss.

Even if you don't mind the odd bouts of bloating, cramps and diarrhoea because they're few and far between, you still need to consider avoiding wheat as much as you can or ditching it completely.

And it's because of what wheat does to your brain that counts, not only your digestion.

Keep reading to see what researchers found when they had a look at the brain in people who eat gluten while they're supposed to be on a wheat-free diet.

Do you get gut-wrenching cramps?
 
Or, do you often have to unbutton your pants after a meal? You suffer from indigestion.
Beyond the discomfort digestion problems cause, they should never be ignored.

A troubled digestive system can cause more serious health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, joint pain and blood sugar problems.

Fortunately, Mother Nature can help when our bodies fall short on effective digestion…

Don’t let your brain suffer because you’re gluten intolerant! Follow a wheat-free diet

Researchers say as many as 81% of the population have some level of sensitivity to the protein found in wheat. But those who suffer adverse reactions when eating wheat, no matter how mild, should be the ones who consider their diet and the elimination of wheat the most.
 
Here’s what it does to your brain: When you eat gluten, your body produces zonulin. Zonulin also makes the blood brain barrier more permeable. So when you’re sensitive to wheat and you have some sort of leaky gut syndrome because of it, more toxins enter the blood. And because your brain now absorbs more from your blood, the more toxins it lets in.
 
That means an increase in inflammation in your brain and your body attacks.
 
And the diseases that develop with long term inflammation in the brain are devastating. They include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia.
 
So be sure to keep your gut healthy and wheat-free if you want to spare your brain and overall health.
