** Reasons to Go Gluten-Free **

A gluten-free diet isn’t just for those with celiac disease or a wheat
allergy. Although eating wheat products, especially whole wheat, does offer
some health benefits, the gluten can actually be harmful. Here are some
reasons you may want to go gluten-free.

· *Humans don’t fully digest wheat.* The undigested portions of wheat
begin to ferment, producing gas. Icky, belchable, fart-forming gas.

· *Wheat is a pro-inflammatory agent.* A pro-inflammatory agent is rapidly
converted to sugar, causing a rise in the body’s insulin levels, causing
a burst of inflammation at the cellular level, among other problems.

· *Wheat can cause leaky gut syndrome. *Leaky gut syndrome is a condition
whereby stuff is leaking from your gut into your bloodstream — stuff that
shouldn’t be there, such as toxins
