What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease involves an immune-mediated intolerance to gluten; which is a protein component found in wheat, barley, rye and sometimes oats. When gluten is ingested, an inflammatory response damages the villi and microvilli lining the walls of the small intestine that aid in absorption of nutrients. This damage interferes with proper digestion and absorption.

Both adults and children can be diagnosed with celiac disease, and the disease is currently estimated to affect 1 in 100 people.

While there are no “typical” symptoms presented in a person with celiac disease, nutrient deficiencies are responsible for most symptoms including: diarrhea, unhealthy weight loss or gain, abdominal pain, bone pain and headaches.

A well-balanced, gluten-free diet is currently the only long-term treatment option.

Essential Dietary Support

People living with celiac disease often find they have nutritional deficiencies due to intestinal damage caused by this disease and the lack of nutrients in gluten-free food. While switching to a gluten-free diet may help keep the symptoms of celiac disease at bay, many struggle to achieve the recommended daily intake (RDI) of nutrients. Common nutrient deficiencies associated with a gluten-free diet include:

•Vitamins A, D, E and K
•Vitamin B12
•Fiber
•Magnesium
•Calcium
•Folate (B9)
•Niacin (B3)
•Phosphorus
•Zinc

Blended with pharmaceutical grade ingredients, Pinnaclife supplements may offer crucial dietary support to help people living with celiac disease achieve their RDI and reach their health goals.

The obvious problem is that sleep deprivation is a factor in accidents. It interferes with thought processes and it is reported to have been an issue in the Three Mile Island nuclear accident and the Exxon Valdez oil spill. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that fatigue results in 100,000 traffic accidents and 1,550 related deaths.

  • Lack of sleep increases appetite and increases the risk of obesity by 30%

What is Fiber?

According to the USDA, dietary fiber is the nondigestible form of carbohydrates and lignin that occurs naturally in plants. Foods that are higher in fiber are vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts and whole grains. Common forms of whole grains include: whole wheat, oats, rye, barley, corn, brown and wild rice, buckwheat, cracked wheat and quinoa. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans in 2010 from the USDA, the daily adequate intake of fiber is 14 grams per 1000 calories. The recommended daily amount of fiber per day is 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men. The average intake of fiber per day averages around 15 grams which is well below the recommended amount.
