Go Gluten Free with Isagenix
Gluten-Free Thanks to Isagenix
Isagenix gluten-free products are a timely solution to a growing problem. It seems that just a decade ago, hardly anyone suffered from gluten intolerance, and few people even knew what gluten was. Gluten awareness seems to have sprung up overnight.
In fact, a recent study by the Mayo Clinic found that celiac disease is on the rise in the United States. While only 1% of the population has been diagnosed with the disease, this is a quadruple increase compared to the number of sufferers 50 years ago. Another study has found that 13% of the population have self-reported gluten sensitivity.
The Challenges of Going Gluten-Free
It’s no wonder, then, that so many people are looking for gluten-free alternatives. However, anyone who suffers from gluten intolerance will know how difficult it is to find gluten-free foods at the supermarket. As with any dietary change, many people who are new to the gluten-free lifestyle struggle to maintain their regime.
The first challenge is finding alternatives to all the foods we love – like pizza, breads, pastas, cereals, and other baked goods. This is especially difficult for families with picky eaters.
The second challenge is finding out how many products contain gluten, including the ones you least suspect. Soups, seasonings, salad dressings, processed and imitation meats, beer, marinades, frosting, puddings, candy, chocolate chips, ice cream, and herbal teas may all contain gluten! Even maltodextrin, artificial caramel color, and hydrolyzed protein are sources of hidden gluten.
The third big challenge is nutrient deficiency. For those with celiac disease, damage to the small intestine can make it difficult to absorb nutrients properly. But even if you are simply gluten sensitive, you need to ensure that your gluten-free diet is balanced and nutritious, so you don’t miss out on fiber, calcium, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folate, and vitamins B and D.
As you can see, it can be difficult to maintain a gluten-free diet. However, with a bit of planning, you can create a meal plan that works for you.
