Probiotics, Along With Gluten Free Diet, Relieves Celiac Disease Symptoms.
Great news for anyone suffering from Celiac Disease. Research reveals how adding a quality, multi-strain probiotic supplement to a daily health regimen may significantly reduce Celiac symptoms and GI upsets.
Celiac Disease is an autoimmune condition where the digestive tract is unable to process gluten. If gluten is ingested, the immune system over-reacts by destroying the villi in the intestinal tract. The little finger-like villi is the 'nutrient absorption system' in our small intestine, allowing those nutrients to be absorbed through the wall of the small intestine and into the bloodstream.
Once the villi are destroyed, the absorption process is compromised and nutrients are not moved into the bloodstream. The person becomes malnourished even though they may be on a healthy diet.
The Mayo Clinic estimates that nearly 1.8 million people in the U.S. suffer from the devastating effects.
While there are pharmaceutical drugs that may help symptoms and dietary restrictions that can help ease some of the devastating effects of this disease, recent studies have shown that adding a probiotics as a supplement to their diet, may help more than anyone realized.
Research conducted at the University of Bari Aldo Moro, Italy, used two groups of children, ages 6-12 years. One group tested positive for Celiac Disease and had been on a gluten-free diet for at least 2 years. The control group showed no signs of Celiac and had no dietary restrictions.
It was found that, even though the diet of the children who tested positive for Celiac was the prescribed, restricted diet and helped with the severity of symptoms, it did not completely restore optimal microbial balance to the gut.
A quote from this study states, "As shown by the parallel microbiology and metabolome approach, the gluten-free diet lasting at least two years did not completely restore the microbiota and, consequently, the metabolome of CD children."
"What this research has shown," says Victoria Playfair of Savi Wellness Probiotics, "is that there are critical deficiencies in the microbial makeup of the children who suffered from CD, or Celiac Disease. The levels of Lactobacillus, Enterococcus and Bifidobacteria were significantly lower in children who had the disease.
These important strains are essential to our body's day to day function. They keep our immune system healthy, reduce inflammation responses, assist in proper brain function, allow optimal nutrient absorption and much, much more.
Probiotics are as important to a healthy body as good food and water."
Research continues into the effects of probiotics in the treatment of Celiac Disease but early results are promising and offer hope to millions of people around the world.
