This is just a short blog today but I wanted to share a review that cropped up on my twitter news feed. It’s an article about coeliac disease and vitamin B deficiency. Quite interesting and worth a read. Below is a snippit of what the article says but for more info go to http://www.celiact.com/blog/2012/07/25/119-b-vitamins-for-celiac-disease.
Also Celiact.com are giving away a free E-book Beyond Your Gluten Free Diet: 4 Steps to a Better Life with Celiac Disease. Just type your e-mail into the box and hit download. There’s no catches or funny business and the info is really good! Hope it helps!
“Celiac disease greatly impairs the body’s ability to absorb many nutrients, and can cause B vitamin deficiency. B vitamin deficiencies frequently cause anemia, as folic acid and vitamin B12 are required to prevent anemia and are often not adequately absorbed in celiacs. B vitamins help prevent anemia, heart disease, and birth defects, while helping to regulate blood glucose, mood and mental health.
B vitamin supplementation can help prevent the development of chronic disease and may even help re-mediate some of the negative symptoms of celiac disease dramatically improving overall health and energy levels.”
