Is Gluten the Reason You Feel Itchy… Achy… Tired… Sad?
Are you dealing with symptoms that make no sense? Suffering with painful joints, pounding headaches, or extreme fatigue that seem to have no cause or connection?
Surprising as it sounds, your mystery symptoms could all map back to the same source – one that you and your doctor might not expect:
Gluten is the reason for dozens of different symptoms in millions of people. But it usually goes undetected as the cause. That doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it…
Here’s the bad news:
Luckily, with the right combination of nutrients and digestive support, you can quickly shut down gluten-related symptoms and protect yourself against future problems
Why You Can’t Fully Digest Gluten (Even if you Think You Can)
No one – absolutely no one – can fully digest gluten.
That includes the people who can eat gluten with no reactions or problems… or so they think.
But it’s a biological fact: People simply cannot break down gluten completely. The best we can do is break it down into smaller pieces called peptides… but those pieces still act like gluten in the body.
Gluten peptides can cause all sorts of reactions, especially for people with any level of gluten sensitivity. And according to experts, gluten sensitivity impacts around 20 million people in the U.S. alone. But most of them don’t know it.
That’s because there’s no clear way to diagnose gluten sensitivity. So you have to go off gluten completely for two to four weeks. If your symptoms go away or get less intense, you have some level of gluten intolerance. And for a double test, you can try eating some gluten to see if your symptoms come back… and they probably will.
Gluten Causes Dozens of Symptoms
Here’s one of the most common myths about gluten: If you don’t get GI issues like diarrhea when you eat gluten, you don’t have a problem with it.
The truth: Gluten also causes an extremely long list of non-GI symptoms, including:
- Anxiety and depression
- Brain fog
- Joint pain
- Muscle aches
- Anemia (low iron)
- Extreme fatigue
- Hair loss
- Lost muscle control (ataxia)
That’s not to say that gluten doesn’t cause gut issues. It absolutely does. In everyone… including people who don’t seem to have gluten sensitivities.
Gluten Causes Leaky Gut
Your gut is lined with a protective barrier that traps bacteria, toxins, and other harmful substances inside. At the same time, the gut barrier lets nutrients and other compounds like antioxidants into your bloodstream so they can get where they need to go.
As you’d expect, your gut barrier needs to know what to lock in and what to let out. It does that with the help of a protein called zonulin. Zonulin regulates the tight junctions on your gut barrier, telling them when to separate and let nutrients pass… and when to stay fully interlocked to keep toxins in.
But then gluten comes along and messes up this perfect system.
Gluten activates zonulin, tricking it into increasing the space between those tight junctions…
More open space creates a leaky gut. And that means those toxins and bacteria and other harmful substances can sneak through the gut barrier and get into your bloodstream. From there, they can cause damage and trigger symptoms anywhere in your body.
So even if you can tolerate gluten just fine… your gut barrier can’t. And that can lead to health problems now and down the road. Unless you keep gluten under control.
How to Help Your Body Manage Gluten
Everyone needs help to fully digest gluten… but if you’re at all sensitive to gluten your body needs extra support, especially for your gut barrier. And since it’s virtually impossible to avoid all gluten, staying ahead of potential problems can help you at least avoid gluten-related symptoms.
This proactive approach requires two types of assists:
Breaking down gluten calls for two powerful enzymes specially designed to tackle this tough job. Tolerase-G and DPP-IV work sort of like scissors, cutting all gluten proteins into smaller pieces that are more manageable for your digestive system to handle.
Supporting your gut barrier calls for especially protective probiotics that increase healing and reinforce tight junctions to restore intestinal health. Three strains of probiotics deliver this targeted barrier support:
With this support team on your side, you can avoid unpleasant symptoms… even if/when gluten gets in your system.
