If You're Allergic To Gluten, You Need To Hear About This New Pill #LifeChanging

July 28, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

More than 2 million people (or one in 133 people, to be technical) in the United States suffer from celiac disease. Those with the genetic autoimmune disorder cannot eat foods that contain gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye, as their small intestine cannot defend itself and will become severely damaged.

Right now, the only treatment for celiac disease is to maintain a completely gluten-free diet. However, researchers at the University of Alberta think they might have developed a supplement that “prevents the absorption of gliadin, a component of gluten that people with celiac disease have difficulty digesting.” The new pill will help the stomach bind and neutralize gluten, which will provide a defense to the small intestine instead of damaging it.

This pill would be life changing to those living with celiac disease. While the supplement sounds amazing, it might not be available for another three years in Canada, and eventually tested and approved for the United States and Europe.

Maybe the gluten-free food “trend” will soon be extinct.
