Gluten intolerance also known as Celiac Disease is a discomfort in the gut affecting nearly 20,000,000 people or 7% of the US population. The cause of gluten intolerance in the small intestine is rejection of a protein called Gluten which is primarily found in grains; wheat, barley and rye.
The walls of the small intestine cannot absorb the nutrients in the gluten grain thus forcing the food mass to absorb water and float in the gut. The result maybe severe upset stomach, constipation, diarrhea, bloody stools and other abdominal discomforts. There is no test detection for gluten intolerance.
Fortunately, our body can fight gluten intolerance simply by preparing and ingesting foods free of the gluten protein. It has been scientifically determined that foods full in nutritional value and gluten free can be beneficial in helping to manage proper nutrient absorption and a healthy digestive system.
