It’s time to deglutenize yourself!
Gluten is found in rye, wheat, and barley. It can cause an inflammatory immune reaction to the gliadin protein in gluten intake, better known as Celiac disease, meaning that when a person with celiac consumes gluten, the body’s immune system goes weirdo and smacks itself on the feely-villi of the small intestine, which inhibits the absorption of nutrients, which in turn produces malnutrition, which in turn leads to a not-so-superhero-life-style. A person with celiac might change her diet, opting for the use of probiotics since the disease can call up some of its looser fiends like osteoporosis, thyroid disease, and cancer. But things are looking up.
Probiotics: The Counter-Celiac Triumph
By decoding the structure of wheat gliadin protein in cellular activity (responsible for the inflammation and gut blocking signals), Irish scientists have discovered that probiotics were efficient at breaking down gluten, preventing its inhibiting intestinal reaction, and that two enzymes, prolyl endopeptidase and endoprotease B, produced from probiotic bacteria divided gluten into non-reactive components, avoiding the intestinal reaction. After having analyzed the probiotic strains Lactobacillus fermentum and Bifidobacterium lactis with gluten digestion and the inflammatory effects of gliadin, researchers from Finland’s University of Tampere Medical School reveal that probiotics can prevent the inflammatory response and hinder the formation of “intestinal barricades”.
NOVA probiotics: Launch your health
The Irish researchers stated: “We conclude that B.lactis bacteria can counteract directly the harmful effects exerted by coeliac-toxic gliadin and would clearly warrant further studies of its potential as a novel dietary supplement in the treatment of coeliac disease.” And researchers from the University of George Washington state: “Inclusion of probiotics appears to be able to reduce the damage caused by eating gluten-contaminated foods and may even accelerate mucosal healing after the initiation of a gluten-free diet.” Houston, we’ve solved a problem.
