Are your supplements making you sick? They might if they contain this....

A doctor colleague of mine who specializes in allergies and environmental medicine calls it the most under-diagnosed condition in the country. I agree. Yet there are health care professionals who don’t even consider it a problem. In fact, this is one condition many people end up discovering for themselves. Whether you have a disease or simply a sensitivity to it, gluten could be the reason for a myriad of symptoms.

If you have this sensitivity you may know that even small amounts of gluten in your food will make you sick. But you may not be aware that gluten may be hiding in your supplements and medications as well. Gluten, as you may know, is in wheat, barley, rye, and products made from these grains.

I’ve talked at length about celiac disease, an auto-immune gluten intolerance, as well as gluten sensitivity — the inability to digest this protein. Both can result in intestinal problems, including diarrhea and bloating. But it also can cause neurological problems, such as Parkinson’s disease, and a host of other symptoms. You can read about gluten intolerance and how to manage it in my past newsletter articles. They’re available on my website.

If you’re sensitive to gluten, you need to remove all traces of it. This includes avoiding it in your supplements and medications, as well as in your foods. Check out any prescription or over-the-counter drugs for gluten at www.glutenfreedrugs.com. And read the labels of all supplements you take. If they don’t say “gluten free,” contact the manufacturer to find out.

Sometimes, a supplement company will fail to identify gluten in their products. So if you get any side effects after taking a new supplement, gluten may be the reason why. Don’t assume any product is gluten-free.

Gluten is such a big problem that I’ve asked Advanced Bionutritionals to make sure none of their products contain gluten. I’m happy to say none of them contain gluten. What’s more, they’ve developed Gluten Sensitivity Formula to help you digest this protein when you accidently ingest it. When you’re at a friend’s house or out to eat, it’s almost impossible to avoid gluten. So take one of these tablets before you eat and your digestive tract will thank you for it.
