"You may have a family member or friend who has to follow a gluten free diet and it could be beneficial for you to understand why.

Gluten is a protein that is found in barley, rye and wheat. It is a substance that is prevalent in many everyday products too like vitamins, medicines and even adhesive materials.

Gluten is not tolerated by those people with celiac disease.

This is a digestive disease that interferes with the ability of the small intestine to absorb nutrients from the food that we eat.

When gluten is consumed, the immune system attacks the small intestine by damaging or destroying the villi that lines the intestine.

The villi that line the intestine are long protrusions that allow food nutrients to enter and be absorbed by the bloodstream.

Without healthy villi, a person can become malnourished no matter how much food they consume. The nutrients have no way of getting to the bloodstream. And so, it becomes very important to keep the villi in a healthy state in order to function properly.

If gluten destroys villi, then it must be deleted from your diet.

There is so much more to know regarding this condition, but that is for someone else with a much higher level of knowledge and expertise to discuss.
