What is gluten? And why is gluten-free right for me?

Gluten is a protein found the grains; wheat, rye and barley. It is complex and can actually attack your body. Eating gluten free can help repair the damage done to your intestines by gluten. Even if you don't think you have an intolerance, sensitivity or celiacs disease eating gluten free can help you gain energy, regulate digestion and even lose weight!

What is celiacs disease? Could I have it?

Celiacs disease is an rare auto immune disorder that affect about 1% of the population. People with Celiacs lack the enzyme that breaks down the protein gluten and therefore cannot digest wheat, rye or barley. The only way to truly find out if you have Celiacs is to get a blood test from your doctor.

So now that we have covered why grains aren't great for you or your health in general, let's sum up what we have learned.

  1. Grains like wheat, rye, and barley have built in defense mechanisms that make small tears in our stomach and intestinal lining.
  2. The lectins in grains damage the villi and microvilli in our digestive system, which eventually decreases our body's ability to absorb and utilize essential nutrients.
  3. Gluten is a complex protein found in grains (wheat, rye and barley) that can cause our antibodies to fight similar good proteins that would otherwise be benign and could even contribute to develop unnecessary allergies.
  4. Our body treats the intact lectins (like WGA) that pass through our system as a threat and create antibodies to fight them. We potentially end up developing allergies and autoimmune disorders because of this reaction.

To learn more about the effects of wheat, rye, and barley on our system, I would highly recommend taking a look at this interview and book excerpt from Tim Ferriss and Robb Wolf.
