Gluten Free Living Is Not a Choice for Many and Why GMOs Must be a NO

Gluten Free living is not just a choice or fade but for many a necessity an it's personal for LLP. 

This is a fundamental element behind the formation of Lovely Lady Products since the founder suffers from many skin, hair and other autoimmune issues which are attributed to Celiac Disease.  According to the Center for Celiac Research, it is estimated that at least 6% to 7% of Americans (around 20 million people)  may suffer from some degree of gluten intolerance, even though some sufferers do not experience digestive problems. Symptoms can include eczema-like skin symptoms, brain fog, fatigue, fibromyalgia, malnutrition, digestive problems, migraines and infertility. While this may seem hard to believe, it is estimated that 90% of people with gluten sensitivity are undiagnosed yet they feel or look unhealthy and have struggled to determine the root cause(s).

Celiac disease is on the rise too... 

also caused by eating the proteins in GMO gluten. It used to be a rare disease and now its popping up all over the place. "Celiac disease was rare, but it's now more common in all age groups," says Joseph Murray, M.D., a Mayo Gastroenterologist. Although the cause is stated to be unknown, celiac disease affects one in 100 people. What's more, the Mayo Clinic has found a fourfold higher death risk for people with undiagnosed gluten intolerance.

Natural Society states.... 

that the cause isn't 'unknown' though, as many mainstream media outlets will purport; it is linked to GMOs and altered wheat and they state here's why:  You’re eating pesticides, junk-wheat, and altered DNA! That’s the simple answer, but the more involved explanation is that Monsanto, Bayer and Syngenta have utterly changed the wheat we grow in America. We aren’t eating the wheat our grandparents or ancestors ate. While other countries ban GMOs, we are shoveling the stuff down our gullets with abandon. Because of the industrial revolution and the way wheat has been processed and milled, most of us eat ‘wheat flour’ that is devoid of nutrients, and the peptides our bodies are used to. The truth is that normal gluten is a protein made up of the peptides gliadin and glutenin. It is found in many grains such as wheat, semolina, spelt, kamut, rye, and barley. Our bodies used to know how to digest those proteins because they were made by nature – not mad scientists and greedy corporations. It’s estimated that 5% of the proteins found in hybridized wheat are new proteins that were not found in either of the original wheat plants. These “new proteins” are part of the problem that has led to increased systemic inflammation, widespread gluten intolerance, and higher rates of celiac.

Researchers are also studying the impact of gluten absorption from the many body care products......      

that our society tends to use on any given day. There are certainly enough reports of topical reactions to warrant further research on the subject. From toothpaste to lotions to hair care, many companies big commercial brands have chosen to include gluten or gluten derivatives often as fillers or binders. Rest assured, if you are among the many people who have had reactions to (or are concerned about experiencing a reaction to) gluten containing products, whether due to Celiac Disease, Gluten Intolerance or a separate skin allergy, there are many brands including Lovely Lady Products who are gluten free so that the benefits can be enjoyed by a wider range of users who share a common goal of achieving internal and external wellness. However, it's very important that your products selections be not only gluten free but free of chemicals, unnecessary additives and especially free of GMOs, making them an easy and dependable choice to purchase for you and your family.
