Is Gluten the Secret Behind Your Most Frustrating Symptoms?
Brain fog… diarrhea… itchy skin… bloating…
These are just a few of the symptoms gluten can cause, even if you don’t have celiac disease.
Some experts believe that as many as 18 million people struggle with gluten sensitivity – that’s triple the number of people with celiac disease – and most of them don’t know it.
The only relief comes from going gluten-free, and even that’s not foolproof. Gluten hides out in unexpected places, and even foods labeled as gluten-free can contain enough gluten to make you sick.
But you can protect yourself against gluten… and help your body repair damage the gluten caused… with the right combination of gluten-busting enzymes and gut-protective probiotics.
Gluten is the main protein found in grains like wheat and rye.
7 Glaring Signs of Gluten Sensitivity
Testing negative for celiac disease doesn’t mean gluten can’t hurt you… even if many doctors aren’t aware of that. Millions of people suffer from non-celiac gluten sensitivity, a condition that causes symptoms – but not an autoimmune response – when you consume gluten.
There’s no way to positively diagnose gluten sensitivity (at least not yet), but if going gluten-free helps erase or minimize your symptoms, you probably have it.
If you have one or more of these seven common but surprising symptoms, and your doctor can’t find a reason for them, gluten may be the cause.
- Brain fog, difficulty focusing, and memory lapses
- Frequent pounding headaches , including migraines
- Digestive issues, from diarrhea to constipation to bloating and gas
- Anxiety or depression
- Itchy or painful skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis
- Extreme fatigue
- Joint or muscle pain
Along with all of these symptoms, gluten can also cause damage to your gut…
Could Your IBS Really Be Gluten Sensitivity?
Both IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and gluten sensitivity can cause devastating gastrointestinal symptoms: diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, and more. Many people diagnosed with IBS find significant relief from their symptoms when they go gluten-free.
Gluten Triggers Leaky Gut… in Everyone
Your intestines carefully regulate their borders, also known as the gut barrier. Your gut barrier traps bacteria, viruses, toxins, and other harmful substances inside so they can be safely expelled. At the same time, it allows nutrients and other beneficial compounds out into your bloodstream for distribution.
It does that with a network of tight junctions (sort of like interlocking puzzle pieces) that stick together to keep substances in, and separate slightly to let nutrients out. A protein called zonulin regulates those tight junctions, telling them when to open and close.
And when everything is working the right way, zonulin tells those tight junctions to release nutrients, antioxidants, and other healthy compounds – and also signals them to seal up to keep pathogens inside.
But when gluten enters the scene, it activates zonulin, increasing the space between those tight junctions…
And that triggers leaky gut, where toxins and other harmful substances escape through the intestinal barrier into the bloodstream… a condition known as toxic streaming. Toxic streaming sets off immune and inflammation responses throughout your body, causing chronic damage wherever it lands.
Just a Few Crumbs Can Trigger Symptoms
If trying a gluten-free diet gets rid of or reduces your symptoms, you’ll need to stay gluten-free to feel your best. But that can be harder than most people realize…
Because it takes less than 100 mg of gluten – about the size of a few crumbs – to set off your symptoms again.
And, unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to avoid gluten completely…
- At least 32% of foods labeled as “gluten-free” contain gluten
- Restaurants that aren’t 100% gluten-free can’t promise that gluten-free dishes don’t contain gluten
- Shared pots, pans, and cooking utensils can transfer gluten to otherwise gluten-free foods
- Gluten-free grains get contaminated with gluten when they’re milled, processed, or packaged on equipment also used for gluten-containing grains (which happens most of the time)
So even when sticking to a strict gluten-free diet, there’s a very good chance you’ll get accidentally “glutened.” Unfortunately, you won’t know it until your symptoms attack… accidental gluten can set off symptoms that last for weeks!
But with the right support – targeted probiotics and enzymes – you can shield your body against accidental gluten and give your body the tools it needs to repair your gut.
