Reasons to Buy a Gluten Free Toothpaste and Mouthwash
There is a common phrase that many people hear, some know the meaning of and others just don’t pay attention to, that phrase is “gluten free”. The fact is that many people have gluten sensitivity and don’t know it. The effects of a gluten sensitivity range widely but some of the symptoms are diarrhea, bad skin and inflammation. Gluten also works in conjunction with Celiac disease and the yeast, candida, to wreak havoc on your body. This is why we have made it our priority to make all Oral Essentials products Gluten Free, including our gluten free mouthwashes.
BUT WHAT IS GLUTEN ANYWAY?
Simply put, gluten is the name of the protein complex in plants such as wheat, barley and rye. It acts as a “glue” that helps food keep its shape (you thought you stopped eating glue in kindergarten, think again). It is found in places you’d least expect it, like mouthwash and toothpaste. Other places that could contain gluten and may not be an obvious source of it are:
- Various sauces
- Malt Vinegar
- Salad dressings
- Food coloring
- Various beauty products
WHY IS GLUTEN BAD?
The effects of gluten on people differ in intensity depending on how advanced or strong the gluten sensitivity is. But even at its slightest, the effect is not good for anyone.
- Gluten causes inflammation in 80% of the population. Inflammation is not just “puffy ankles” or bags under the eyes, but has an adverse effect on all aspects of your health. Diabetes, heart disease, stroke, migraines, thyroid issues, dental issues, or cancer are all inflammation related conditions. We’re not saying that gluten causes cancer, what we are saying is, why consume anything that is even remotely close to such conditions or has been shown to be associated with these conditions?
- 30% of the population develops antibodies to gluten in the stomach, researchers believe this helps prove that your body doesn’t like it and is attempting to protect itself.
- The gluten protein gliadin can have a similar structure to other proteins in the body that make up tissues of organs such as the thyroid or the pancreas. The antibodies that your body creates to fight against gliadin can get confused and actually attack these tissues. Over a prolonged time period this can cause autoimmune diseases like type 1 diabetes or hypothyroidism. Even if you consciously cut out gluten in your diet, it is snuck into common hygiene products. This is why we designed a gluten free mouthwash.
- It can cause leaky gut. Leaky gut is when your small intestine “leaks” the undigested food particles and other toxins that were meant to be expelled into your bloodstream. The ramifications of this are many and none of them good.
Due to the above reasons, all our products are gluten free, including our gluten free mouthwash and toothpaste.
