Is BREAD Breaking Down Your Bones?
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
As you age, there are a few things at the forefront of your mind.
Having enough money in your 401(k), spending time with your grandkids, and staying sharp and healthy.
And one of the biggest things you can do to maintain your independence and your health is to keep your bones strong.
But now researchers have discovered that there’s a terrible threat lurking in one of America’s favorite foods: bread.
A new study has uncovered a bread ingredient that may be secretly weakening your bones, leaching away calcium and making you prone to dangerous falls.
So before you butter up your toast, read this.
Celiac disease is a hard to diagnose, autoimmune disease triggered by gluten.
Gluten is a protein that is found in many cereal grains like wheat, oatmeal, barley, rye and other grains.
But gluten is also found in a LOT of foods we eat, including coffee creamer, beer, candies, spices, cheese, chewing gum, and many other processed foods.
Celiac disease is pretty common: 1 in 133 people has the disease. However, it’s estimated that up to 83 percent of people who have it don’t know they have it. That’s bad news for their bones.
A recent study, out of George Mason University College of Health and Human Services, published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, discovered that people with undiagnosed celiac disease had lower bone density.
(Celiac disease isn’t the only bone wrecker out there. Some of them are actually hiding in bottles… bottles of pills that are supposed to keep you healthy! But instead these drugs are destroying your bones. Find out more about these drugs, here.)
Surprisingly, the researchers found that people with undiagnosed celiac disease took in more calories and nutrients (because the disease makes absorbing nutrients difficult).
But how could you have a disease and not even know it?
That is easy: some common symptoms of celiac disease include: anxiety, anemia, bloating and gas, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, headaches, joint pain … all of which can easily be attributed to other conditions (or just a normal part of life).
Left untreated, these folks have a much higher risk of other autoimmune disease (like arthritis), osteoporosis, thyroid disease, and certain cancers…
Not to mention the fact that the disease destroys your gut’s ability to digest and absorb essential nutrients (including those minerals your bones need to be strong).
Thankfully, it’s easy to find out if you have celiac disease. A simple blood test will tell you if you have antibodies to gluten.
Plus, treatment for celiac disease is simple: stop eating gluten.
If you discover you are of these people with celiac disease, make sure you are getting the nutrients your bones need by eating enough good proteins, taking enough Vitamin D, Vitamin K, magnesium, boron, calcium, along with regular exercise.
P.S. To keep your bones at their strongest you need to know about all the bone-damaging culprits. Some of them might be hiding in your bathroom… in your medicine cabinet to be exact. Find out here if the drugs you or a loved one are taking are secretly wrecking your bones.
