Most people who decide to eat gluten-free generally do so because they have associated health problems. Perhaps they have been diagnosed with Coeliac disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or a gluten intolerance. If gluten does not agree with you, it can be very uncomfortable and you could experience health issues on a daily basis.
A trend has also emerged lately with more and more people deciding to go gluten free, even if they do not experience any health-related gluten problems. It is important to know that there is no one size fits all approach to this. The benefits of implementing a gluten-free diet are not the same for everyone, but those suffering from an intolerance may see direct health and lifestyle improvements relating to the below areas when they change their diet.
Changes you may experience include:
Sufferers of gluten related issues such as Coeliac disease often find a reduced fluctuation in weight when eliminating gluten from their diet.
If you have a gluten intolerance, bloating is likely to reduce when you eat gluten free foods. Bloating is an upsetting and uncomfortable issue for many people worldwide.
A number of people have reported that they notice an increase in their concentration when their bodies are not preoccupied fighting the effects of gluten.
Many people who suffer from problems related to gluten will experience gastro-intestinal relief when changing to gluten free foods. Inflammation, which causes pain, will decrease and so will many other symptoms.
Nutrient absorption improved
Evidence suggests that those with gluten sensitivity issues find that by reducing the level of gluten in their food, they are able to better process what they eat and gain the maximum nutrient quantities from food.
