Gluten Facts For Celiac

47 Facts About Gluten You Need to Know

Alright, I can hear you saying – “47 facts about gluten! Come on Dr. Osborne. There is no way that all of this can be true! My doctor never talked about any of these things!” Part of the reason this information is not main stream is because most doctors don’t go this deep. Their training on gluten is limited to a small segment about celiac disease. It is not common in medical schools for nutrition or non celiac gluten sensitivity to be discussed in any great detail. It is the researchers (PhD’s) who help us understand the science behind this intricate topic. And so I went to the research. I didn’t want you to go another day without having this information, because frankly, it could save your life… it could also save the life of someone you love. That is exactly why I put in the research links for you to follow. So if you are a gluten skeptic, or, if you on a science nerd and need to see the research, feel free to follow the links in the list below to learn more. Think you might be gluten sensitive? ==>>Take the Quiz Here <<==
