The Gluten Shocker: Escape the Epidemic that Silently Threatens Your Health
If you're suffering from fatigue, skin rashes, digestive upsets such as bloating and gas, insomnia, joint pain, blood sugar imbalance or diabetes, weight gain, or chronic infections ... the culprit may very well be a single protein molecule attacking you from within your own body.
Nearly 40% of older Americans (and more each year) suffer from gastric disorders—persistent bloating and discomfort ... debilitating pain ... and dangerous diseases such as leaky gut syndrome, Crohn's, and diverticulitis. Conditions once considered rare are now epidemic. For instance, celiac disease—a health-destroying disorder caused by wheat gluten—went barely noticed a decade ago. Now it affects 1 of every 133 people.
Gluten intolerance or sensitivity is far more common than celiac disease, and its destructive symptoms are even more difficult to identify. Given this, many doctors simply suggest cutting out wheat and dairy to see if you feel better. The problem with this approach is that gluten and other food culprits are pervasive throughout the Standard American Diet (SAD). Thus, cutting out wheat and dairy may bring no relief even if these foods are severely undermining your health. This is why digestive disorders go undiagnosed for years, unleashing much larger problems down the road, such as muscle and joint dysfunction, heart disease, and cancer.
But recently, scientists made a breakthrough discovery. They identified a dietary invader proven to cause countless gastric problems. Pinpointing the cause led quickly to the cure—a completely natural remedy that captures this digestive invader and knocks it out—with no harmful side effects. After just a few shorts weeks of therapy, people—even those with the most chronic conditions—experienced outstanding benefits against...
Digestive problems, bloating, gas, and persistent pain Food sensitivities—from gluten and grains to nuts and dairy Diabetes and blood sugar balance Skin rashes and acne outbreaks Inexplicable weight gain and cravings Low energy, especially after eating Arthritis, joint discomfort and muscle stiffness Compromised immune function Blood pressure and heart health
The root cause of these persistent health problems is a single molecule present in nearly every food we eat. Ironically, this molecule was once thought totally harmless! It was even used medicinally as a blood coagulant. But now science has confirmed a surprising link between this molecule and major digestive trouble.
The molecule is called lectin.
"The term 'lectin' was introduced in 1954 by scientists William C. Boyd and Elizabeth Shapleigh," says John A. Casey, M.D., C.C.N. "Researchers have shown that some lectins are blood type specific... However, very few of us made the connection between using lectins in the lab to agglutinate blood and going home to have them for dinner."
Lectins are found in fruits, vegetables, seafood, grains, beans, and seeds. Gluten is a huge source of lectin—which means lectin is jam-packed into foods such as breads, cereals, and many other processed foods. Other major lectin sources are corn, milk, soy, and peanuts.
It's no wonder allergies, digestive chaos, and chronic diseases are skyrocketing! The American diet is almost completely dependent on gluten and corn-based processed foods, all loaded with lectin. Referring to celiac disease, one expert gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic told the New York Times, "It's not just that we're better at finding it. It truly has become more common."
The problem is lectin!
Setting off a Cascade of Trouble Within
Lectins start trouble as they enter our intestinal tract. That's because these molecules attach themselves to the sugars found naturally in healthy cells. It works like this: Most cells have membranes that contain carbohydrates. And as food passes through our digestive system, lectins latch onto cells that line our intestines and colon.
Unfortunately, once latched on, lectins disrupt and damage cells. In response to the damage, your immune system kicks in, sending white blood cells rushing in to deal with the problem. In other words, lectins attack your body ... and your body attacks back. These attacks can lead to cell destruction. Even worse, your immune system can become overloaded, leading to autoimmune dysfunction.
A cascade of problems is now unleashed throughout your entire digestive system, spreading out to your skin, muscles, joints, and even your heart.
A Simple Disguise can Trick a Complex Invader
To solve the problem of lectin—which is found in almost every food you eat—researchers tried a simple experiment. What if the lectin could be diverted by a flood of "decoy sugars?" Could the "decoy sugars" get between lectin and the body's own cells?
The answer was yes, and the secret is "sacrificial" sugars. When a supplement containing a combination of 5 "sacrificial sugars" is taken with meals, lectin is disabled. Instead of attacking your intestine and colon walls, the lectin hitches a ride on the sacrificial sugars and passes harmlessly through your body.
For patients, the effect of these sacrificial sugars was almost immediate. With just a few doses incorporated into meals, lectin was vastly eliminated from the digestive tract.
Sacrificial sugars can also break lectin's ability to stimulate fat cell production. That's right, unfortunately, lectin also makes you fat. According to a report in the peer-reviewed journal Neuropeptides, lectin from wheat, corn, peas, potatoes, and lentils binds to insulin hormone receptors, and triggers them to stimulate fat production. That's why so many of us with gastric problems also suffer from inexplicable cravings and sudden weight gain. It's paradoxical but true: by introducing these 5 decoy sugars, you can break the weight gain signal right at its source.
Flush out Lectins and Even Neutralize Nasty Gluten
Since gluten is also a lectin, the sacrificial sugars that flush out lectin also protect you from "hidden gluten" in processed foods, sauces, medicines, and even cosmetics. Protecting yourself from the lectin-soaked American diet comes with long-term health benefits, because eliminating lectin helps to ...
Promote weight loss through improved metabolism and energy Restore proper water balance in your body Soothe those occasionally achy joints, muscles and organs Balance inflammation and improve immune function Repair your digestive tract and keep it healthy Facilitate healthy detoxification in your liver and gut
A "Lectin Force Field" Between You and Lectins Everywhere
You could try to follow a diet that severely limits your intake of lectins. But lectins are everywhere—not just in foods, but in the environment, too. Since lectins are prevalent in the plant world, you can be exposed to them just by walking on the grass... inhaling pollen in the air... or spending time in your garden. Lectins even lurk in medicines... cosmetics... vitamins... and nutritional supplements.
But you don't have to live in a bubble to stay away from lectins. Scientific research shows you can create a virtual lectin force field to help protect your gut. Since 70% of your immune system is located in your gut, this lectin force field can enhance your total immune health, long-term. Renowned integrative physician Dr. Michael Cutler—with 18 years of experience in chronic degenerative diseases, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue—says the discovery of lectin protection deserves nothing short of a Nobel Prize! Get the details on this natural breakthrough here, so you can prote...
