Discover the Health Benefits of Our Gluten Free Menu Options

Gluten Free Menu Options

Gluten free menu options are becoming increasingly desirable, and Blue Agave is dedicated to appealing to the dietary needs of all of our customers. But why are people seeking more gluten-free options? 

One key reason is the health benefits of eating gluten free, and if you’re unsure what health benefits there are, here are a few things to consider. 

Eases digestive issues

One of the primary reasons people are drawn to a gluten free diet is the digestive issues brought about by celiac disease. It is estimated that 1 in 100 people worldwide experiences celiac disease. So, although gluten-free diets may seem relatively new, it is hardly an uncommon occurrence. 

When people with celiac disease consume gluten-heavy foods, such as bread, they suffer from digestive issues that include bloating, gas, or constipation. You don’t need to be a medical expert to realize this is not desirable and is downright uncomfortable. A gluten free diet eliminates these digestive issues, which allows you to enjoy your meals like you deserve to. 

Reduce chronic inflammation

Chronic inflammation and celiac disease have a connection. If you have tried everything you can to ease chronic inflammation and discomfort to no avail, it could be a sign that you have celiac disease without even realizing it. 

This inflammation can make it challenging to move around or get comfortable even when you are sitting down. It can impact physical performance, such as exercise, and as the issue is chronic, it can take weeks or even months to subside. Gluten free diets will reduce antibody levels caused by this inflammation and can reduce problems that drive from eating gluten-based foods. For many who experience celiac disease, this adjustment leads to a significant improvement in their lifestyle. 

Can increase energy 

One of the symptoms of eating gluten-heavy foods is fatigue. Switching to an alternative such as Amaranth, Buckwheat, or Quinoa can reduce fatigue. As around 80% of Americans with celiac disease are undiagnosed, they may simply assume they have overeaten. However, if this problem persists, even with smaller portions, there’s a chance celiac disease is the culprit. 

By opting for a gluten-free diet, whether you have celiac disease or not, you can dramatically boost your energy levels even after consuming a large meal. This means you don’t need to sit on the couch to wait for recovery, especially as this is not ideal for proper digestion. Instead, you can move around, go for a post-dinner walk, and feel better overall. 

Weight loss 

Many people who switch from a gluten-based diet to a gluten-free diet will experience weight loss. This is nothing to be concerned about. It is merely a sign that your new diet is working, even if you did not embrace a gluten-free diet for weight loss reasons. 

Gluten-free diets mean you cut out a lot of junk food packed with sodium and other fat-heavy ingredients. Such ingredients are replaced by lean proteins or fruit and vegetables. Still, many are drawn to gluten-free snacks, and although they are arguably healthier than the alternative, they can still add calories. 

Eases joint pain

Joint pain is an issue that many associate with getting older, or perhaps it is because of an old injury that flares up once in a while. They assume there is nothing they can do about this other than take painkillers and hope it goes away. But, celiac disease could be a cause of this, as it is linked to abnormal immune reactions, such as increased antibodies. 

You may experience wrist, back, or knee pains, and this is where gluten-free diets are beneficial. They reduce these issues, although they might flare up again if you consume gluten, whether accidentally or because you assume the issue is resolved. 

Promotes healthy bones and skin

Everybody wants healthy bones and skin, especially as they age and wrinkles come around, and bones become brittle. Some celiac patients will experience calcium deficiencies, but some found that bone density improved by following a gluten free diet. Similarly, rashes and eczema could be reduced by undertaking a gluten-free diet, as your intolerance puts you at more significant risk of skin problems regardless of age.
