Every year, more and more people are committing to a gluten free lifestyle, and there’s no reason to assume that 2018 will be any different. With this trend continuing stronger than ever, you may find yourself wondering why so many are steering clear of gluten, and perhaps considering if you should do the same. Even if you’ve been leading a gluten free lifestyle for a while now, you’re no doubt looking for products that can complement your daily routine. And if living without gluten is a new resolution, you’ve come to the right place!
Before deciding whether you should go gluten free, it’s beneficial to know what gluten really is. Gluten is the name for proteins that are found in wheat and wheat by products. This includes, but is not limited to, wheatberries, emmer, semolina, graham, farro, rye, barley, and triticale, which is a cross between wheat and rye. We find these proteins in a plethora of every day foods, like bread and cereals. However, gluten isn’t limited to food anymore. It can sneak its way into your shampoo, toothpaste, lotions, and even your cosmetics by means of ingredients like wheat germ and avena sativa.
Now that you know what gluten is, you may wonder if it’s worth cutting out of your lifestyle. While this is a personal decision to be made individually, many people avoid gluten because of its potential health problems. Wheat proteins are gut irritants and can cause an inflammatory response in your stomach, inducing gas and bloating. Some people have an increased level of gluten intensity than others, and even trace amounts of gluten can cause negative reactions. One of the easiest ways gluten found in cosmetics can find it’s way into your system is by means of lipstick.
