Gluten, Gut and Immune Function
According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, Gluten is: a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. It helps food hold its shape, acting as a glue. Gluten can be found in many foods, most of which you’d never consider containing it.
While gluten is a building block of food, some people cannot tolerate it in their diets, many of those same people becoming violently ill upon ingesting gluten. Because we understand that gluten can cause severe issues, we wanted to make sure that even those who enjoy a gluten-free lifestyle can still enjoy the benefits of HUmineral products.
HUmineral nutrient supplement products are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, soy-free, sugar-free, fat-free, USA and non-GMO.
REFERENCE: Humic and Fulvic Acid Mineral contains a plethora of nutrients that improve gut health, including: trace minerals, electrolytes, fatty acids, silica (which boosts collagen synthesis), pre-biotics and probiotics. These help nourish the digestive tract and also boost the ability of “good bacteria” to repopulate and form a healthy “microbiome” environment. We need a strong digestive system to build immunity, help control hormone production, regulate our appetite, reduce our stress response and much more. As a result of gut permeability (when particles are able to escape through the gut lining and enter the bloodstream where they should not normally be), inflammation is triggered and autoimmune reactions can occur. There is some evidence that consuming humic/fulvic acid mineral promotes a healthy intestinal tract and immune system (digestive disorders and other issues, including: SIBO symptoms, (small intestine bacterial overgrowth), inflammatory bowel disorders, bacterial infections (respiratory, urinary tract, etc.), or the flu and common colds.
