Do you feel bloated, drained, and sluggish? Gluten could be contributing to these blah symptoms. Gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, gives foods like bread and dough their chewy texture. Unfortunately, those who are gluten sensitive can experience increased inflammation in the body, especially the gut. Gluten sneaks past the gut barrier and enters the immune system. This throws your immune system into full gear, causing it to develop antibodies to attack gluten which can, in turn, attack the body.
Going gluten-free has been a trend among celebrities and health enthusiasts for years. But why? Experts claim that ditching wheat can wash away pounds, enhance physical performance, decrease belly fat, and boost energy levels. If that doesn’t convince you, supporters attribute improved digestion, less bloating, and clearer skin to their gluten-free diet. Wheat plays a prominent role in the American diet. It’s tough to cut the chemical out entirely. But don’t stress – SkinnyMs. is here to help!
