If you are suffering with poor gut health, fatigue, bloating, and brain fog could gluten be to blame? My gluten intolerance checklist will help identify a problem with gluten.
Firstly, What is Gluten?
Gluten is the protein found in a variety of grains including wheat, rye, spelt, barley, oats, and triticale – which is a cross between wheat and rye. Gluten is also widely found in processed foods such as bread, pasta, breakfast cereals, desserts, biscuits, and microwave meals.

A Gluten Free Diet For Thyroid Health
There’s a definite link between gluten and thyroid health problems. Therefore strictly eliminating gluten from the diet is an important strategy for anyone who wants to recover their thyroid health, even when you don’t think you are gluten intolerant.
Did you know it takes at least 4 weeks to start to clear the harmful effects of gluten from your system?
In addition, you have to go all in if you want to experience the benefits of a gluten free diet.
Avoiding Gluten Requires a 100% Commitment
There are no cheat days! Even trace amounts of gluten can trigger a gut-immune reaction. If this happens you are back to square one.
However, avoiding this common food ingredient could improve your energy levels, reduce brain fog, end the bloat, and may even help you lose weight, especially belly fat.
