What are the benefits of going wheat/gluten free?

o   Firstly, if you are gluten intolerant or suffer from Chron’s / Celiac disease, your body is  not capable of tolerating gluten and it causes an allergic reaction.

o   Going wheat/gluten free will reduce “bloated/heavy” feeling that most individuals experience after consuming regular breads containing wheat/gluten.

o   Eliminating wheat / gluten from one’s diet drastically improves concentration, reduces fatigue, assists people with  Chron’s, Celiac Disease, Diabetes, ADD, ADHD, Psorisis, Eczema to mention a few.
