Celiac disease, gluten intolerance.
Celiac disease (CD) is a digestive illness triggered in some people by foods containing
the protein gluten and a component of gluten called gliadin. Celiac disease was
called ‘sprue’ or coeliac sprue. The medical term is gluten-sensitive enteropathy. Less
severe forms of the disease are often referred to as gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity,
Gluten protein is found in wheat, barley and rye. The mainstay of treatment is
avoidance of these products. However, these are extremely popular grains that appear in
many types of foods as well as baked goods. For this reason, individuals with celiac
disease must watch out for gluten-containing foods, and carefully read product labels.
In sensitive individuals, gluten triggers an immune response in the small intestine. Over
time this leads to inflammation and tissue damage, poor absorption of nutrients and
symptoms that range from cramps, bloating and diarrhea to more serious complications
including weight loss, anemia, osteoporosis and lymphoma. Considered a type of autoimmune disease, celiac disease can lead to a headaches, rashes, joint pain and more.
Clinical trials of celiac disease antioxidant vitamins have been promising
but have not yet answered an important question: whether the antioxidants work by
simply correcting a problem of malabsorption or by addressing a deeper, underling
problem of oxidative stress.
Celiac disease and glutathione.
Since celiac disease is an immune-related disease, it’s no surprise to find both glutathione
and oxidative stress implicated. Various studies have demonstrated that gluten/gliadin
disturbs the pro-oxidant/antioxidant balance affected individuals by overproducing free
radicals and depleting antioxidants-notably glutathione. This is particularly apparent in children.
Correction of celiac disease at a young age is necessary to avoid cases of failure to thrive.
GLUTATHIONE AND STOMACH DISEASE
Evidence suggests that glutathione defends the stomach lining against various threats,
including toxins, oxidative stress and carcinogens. This has prompted scientists to seek
ways of raising glutathione levels in humans for both preventive and curative purposes. Elevated
glutathione levels may protect against gastritis, ulcer and cancer and can certainly complement
conventional treatments for these diseases.
It’s known that pancreatitis leads to high levels of oxidative stress and glutathione
depletion, and antioxidant therapy is being used to treat pancreatitis and prevent its
recurrence. Although antioxidant therapy is a safe complementary treatment for chronic
pancreatitis, its wider adoption as a standard healthcare tool will take time. The lynchpin
of such approach is the search for tools to enhance (modulate) intracellular glutathione
levels. As these tools evolve, further research will focus on how to use them most effectively.
CELIAC DISEASE, GLUTEN INTOLERANCE.
This immune-related disease has shown high levels of oxidation and low levels of glutathione as part of its
pathophysiology. Active investigation into replenishing both antioxidants and glutathione are forthcoming.
The use of glutathione supplementation fights all kind of diseases from respiratory to auto immune to degenerative diseases.
Without question, the best type of preventive medicine is an optimized immune system, and a critical means to optimize it is by feeding it glutathione.
This is not the same glutathione that you see at the health food store. This is glutathione precursor. It’s very different because glutathione must be made inside your cells and the precursor is the food your cells require to make its own glutathione as nature intended. That is the most natural and effective approach to boost your immune system.
It’s all natural with NO side effect.
