Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. During the past decades, these grains have been genetically engineered so that the protein is about 10 times bigger than in the original grain. Our bodies see this protein as an alien, and the autoimmune system attacks it. Since gluten is used in so many processed and packaged foods, our bodies are flooded with this irritant almost constantly, eventually creating a chronic autoimmune response, which then creates sensitivites and eventually any number of chronic diseases such as arthritis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Hoshimoto's Disease.
Since our skin is our biggest organ and anything we put on it is absorbed into the bloodstream within seconds, it is very important to know the ingredients in the products we are putting on our skin. Most skin care products and makeup contain gluten, as well as any number of chemicals and toxins. It's very important to find products that are pure, safe, and beneficial, even if there are no noticiable side effects from using chemicals on our skin. Those side effects are accumulating and will cause problems and disease and premature aging down the road.
