Following a diet that eliminates foods containing gluten is a must for people of any age who struggle with intolerance for gluten or with celiac disease. Gluten is found in many foods, ranging from cereals and breads to snack foods and beverages. Although this may make it very difficult to avoid foods that contain gluten, it is possible with some research and dedication.
Some of the advantages to choosing foods that don’t contain gluten include:
-Improves energy. By converting to a gluten-free dietary plan, you can provide your intestines with an opportunity to heal. This will help to restore more efficient absorption of nutrients and boost your energy.
-Helps reduce bloating. You may be prone to bloating or gassiness if you have celiac disease and consume foods containing gluten. If you change to gluten-free options, you will typically experience an immediate improvement and a midsection that is noticeably flatter following your meal.
-Helps to limit joint pain. Intolerance to gluten or celiac disease is often associated with the intestinal tract. However, there can be other effects, too. Because celiac disease can result in abnormal immune system reactions, it can also increase the risk of uncomfortable inflammation. Consequently, joint pain, particularly in the wrists and knees, is a commonly-experienced sign of celiac disease. Gluten-free diets can help to limit joint pain.
