Unless you are celiac, a gluten-free diet is dangerous to your health.
All experts have come to the conclusion that the gluten-free diet is inadmissible for human health and well-being. You don’t have to be celiac. They say that the body works much better if we move. These diets have become very important because allergies are more present in society. Most celebrities are looking for all kinds of diets, but one of them is the aforementioned gluten-free diet. Who is right?
Gluten free diet: is it healthy?
This celiac disease affects 1% of the population and is a fairly autoimmune disease. It is triggered by gluten, because its intake affects the digestive system, especially the intestinal mucosa. Gluten is found in: processed cereals and foods (pizzas, industrial pastries or whole wheat bread, etc.)
So what conclusion should we draw? Is it good to eat gluten or not? No, if you are not really celiac. If you do not eat gluten anymore, it means you will not consume fiber, as it will lead to constipation or other more severe gastrointestinal problems. This gluten does not contribute to the risk of heart disease, diabetes or respiratory infections.
Gluten also has a positive effect on health, because it gives us a feeling of satiety and because of this makes us eat less. So it is very important if we want to lose weight. It will also negatively affect our well-being, lacking the ability to absorb calcium or vitamin D from gluten. If you are planning a gluten-free diet, you should consult a specialist doctor.
If we want to supplement the absence of gluten, we must consume other ingredients used industrially. That is, it increases the amount of sugar, saturated fat and salt.
