Yes, you heard me right. One 2013 survey shows that a third of Americans have already eliminated or are actively trying to eliminate gluten from their diets and many are turning to products like our Gluten Free Tiger Nuts to help them. The fact is that Tiger Nuts are not nuts at all. They’re small vegetable tubers that grow in the ground just like carrots or potatoes and they have a similar sweet taste to coconut, but they’re nut free and a lot more!

Awareness of the negative health effects of gluten has rapidly increased in the past few years. But gluten-free is more than just the latest fad… there are multiple studies showing that gluten really can cause harmful effects.

To increase your awareness, here are just 6 of many reasons to avoid gluten:-

  • Celiac Disease is on the rise and most people remain undiagnosed, showing that gluten can cause harmful effects.
  • Gluten Sensitivity is much more common now than it’s ever been and can also have serious consequences.
  • Gluten may cause adverse effects, even in people who don’t have gluten sensitivity. Many brain disorders are associated with gluten and patients see dramatic Improvements on a gluten-free diet.
  • There are many people who believe that wheat may be addictive.
  • Gluten is widely associated with autoimmune diseases.

Of course, it is far from being definitively proven that gluten causes harm in a large percentage of people and that most people would do best by avoiding it. This area is in desperate need of some more research. However, the evidence that we DO have is pretty damning.

Until more research is done, we think the cautionary principle should apply… why eat something that is likely to cause harm, when you could eat something else instead that definitely won’t harm you?

Also keep in mind that wheat (the unhealthiest grain, by far) can be problematic for many reasons, some of which have nothing to do with the gluten.

At the end of the day, the only way to know if you should avoid gluten or not, is to remove it from your diet, then reintroduce it and see if you get symptoms.

So why not try the ‘ ELIMINATE GLUTEN FOR 30 DAYS ‘ test. If you completely eliminate gluten for 30 days (no cheating), then eat a meal with gluten and experience adverse effects, then you probably have gluten sensitivity and should make a serious effort to avoid it.

If you have any mysterious health issues, then you owe it to yourself to try a gluten-free diet for 30 days. You have nothing to lose.
