A lot of people choose gluten-free nutrition even though the adverse effect of gluten is a controversial topic among medical experts. It’s worth knowing that gluten isn’t harmful to everybody, at least not in the same manner. Therefore, it’s wise to get acquainted with its basic characteristics, which you can find in the infographic below created by the team from medalerthelp.org.

Being a protein which is a part of many cereals, such as wheat, barley, oats, and rye, gluten can be found in most food products, like bread, pastries, and pasta. Generally speaking, gluten can harm the body in two ways. Namely, it causes an allergic reaction or leads to intolerance, which is, in its most serious form, called celiac disease.

Celiac disease can be either innate or acquired. An innate or so-called metabolic reaction occurs due to a decrease in the activity or a lack of certain enzymes. It is basically a long-lasting chronic reaction that does not endanger the organism vitally. On the other hand, it can lead to illness and chronic conditions such as joint pain, depression, fatigue, and problems with digestive organs. Over the past several decades, a fivefold increase in the prevalence of celiac disease has been observed in elderly people, clearly implying that the disease can be acquired. Therefore, it is perhaps wise for every one of us to consider keeping the level of gluten intake at an acceptable threshold.

Those suffering from gluten intolerance have somewhat limited food options. Although the list of forbidden foods may seem scary, there are many natural substitutes. Instead of the above-mentioned cereals, try using buckwheat, corn, millet, and rice. It is always a good idea to stick to fresh and raw foods. Base your food selection on fresh fruit and vegetables, beans, legumes, potatoes, nuts, chicken and fish, and the negative symptoms of consuming gluten should retreat in approximately six months.
