See, if you have Celiac Disease your body can’t process this little bugger. If consumed it causes the villi in the small intestine to wear away and you can’t absorb nutrients properly. Important vitamins like D & B12 and minerals like zinc & magnesium just to name a few. Not absorbing nutrients properly can create a ton of crazy problems. Not only can it create major malnourishment but it also messes with your hormones. Oh and don’t forget your feelings and emotions! Not just in celiacs but for anyone with an autoimmune disease. Crazy, right? How is it that can food have such an effect on us?
Food is more important then we think. And not just for someone with celiac disease but for anyone. Especially if you have an autoimmune disease.
