What is gluten, and why is it a problem? Gluten is a protein found in wheat and other grains such as barley, rye, spelt, kamut, and sometimes oats. It is extremely difficult to digest, and when an intolerance to it develops due to over-consumption or heredity, it irritates the lining of the intestinal walls, destroying the cilia that absorb nutrients and causing inflammation and irritation of the bowels. Symptoms such as aching joints, bloating, fluid retention, depression, acne, skin rashes, psoriasis and eczema may be relieved by eliminating gluten from your diet. People diagnosed with Celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and other conditions will benefit from a gluten free lifestyle.
