People who are the most sensitive end up with Celiac’s Disease. Gluten causes inflammation in the gut lining and pain.
Celiac’s Disease can cause severe symptoms (Ciliac’s) or be subclinical and exhibit almost no symptoms. With time though, people will begin to exhibit clin...Read Full Post »

HOW DO LECTINS MAKE ME FAT?

Also legumes, all dried beans, soy and peanuts. Dairy, especially from grain-fed cows as opposed to grass-fed cows. Nightshades like potato, tomato, eggplant and pepper contain them as ...Read Full Post »

One journal discusses the research associated with wheat germ lectin. It may impact the immune system by increasing inflammation.
Long-term inflammation is linked to many serious medical conditions, including heart disease, cancer, and depression.
Following a lectin-free diet ...Read Full Post »

LECTINS AND GRAINS
Unrefined grains are more nutritious than refined versions because they contain more nutrients. However, they also provide more lectins (and other anti-nutrients).

What Are Lectins?
Lectins are types of protein that, in humans, may help cells interact with one another. Some scientists also believe that lectins provide a form of defense in plants to keep insects away. These proteins also contain nitrogen, which is needed for plants to grow.

Lectins are thought to play a role in immune function, cell growth, cell death, and body fat regulation.

Certain f...Read Full Post »
