8 Best Reasons to Go Gluten Free

8 Best Reasons to Go Gluten Free

Gluten is found in a variety of cereal grains like wheat, rye, barley and so on, most of which form a vital part of our staple diet. But there are a lot of reasons to go gluten free and avoid these food choices, and a few of them are mentioned below.

1. Only way to tackle celiac disease

A gluten-free diet is the only known effective treatment for celiac disease. Hence a gluten-free diet is highly recommended for those with gluten sensitivity.

2. Refined wheat is not very nutritious

Most of us partake only in refined wheat whose nutritional chart will leave you flustered. No wonder you will come across a zillion labels of “fortified wheat” and what not in the market to make up for the less nutrient content of the refined wheat.

3. Helps to keep the digestive tract clean and clear

Wheat can’t be completely digested by humans and the undigested part may become fermented and cause a whole lot of embarrassing digestive symptoms including flatulence.

4. Helps in watching your weight

The grains containing gluten are rich sources of carbohydrates, something your trainer will ask you to avoid at all costs if you are trying to reduce the bulge in your tummy. So try to replace a gluten based diet with a gluten-free one, and go for fresh vegetables and protein rich foods.
