Contrary to what people think going Gluten-free isn’t always healthy.
A Gluten-free diet, is it good for you?
With all the hype about gluten, consumers have come to believe that going gluten-free will give them more energy, help them lose weight, lose their belly bloat, improve digestive health, and make them better athletic performers.
A Gluten-free diet is beneficial if you have celiac disease (an autoimmune disease in which immune cells attack the small intestine when you eat gluten) or a sensitivity to gluten (inflammation). However, omitting gluten products from your diet can actually carry health risks.
Health risks, what can they possibly be?
If you have no lab-proven gluten sensitivities, don’t switch over to a TOTAL gluten-free diet. Eating some gluten-free products certainly can’t hurt, but 100% totally gluten-free may not be necessary. Check with your health care provider.
