WHY GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE?
Gluten activates zonulin, this relaxes the tight intercellular junctions of the intestine walls and causes intestinal permeability.
The leaky gut is related to the appearance of autoimmune diseases, chronic inflammatory diseases, infective, metabolic, and tumoral diseases.
Gluten is an inflammatory protein for all of us, not just for those who are intolerant or allergic to it.
Dairy products are highly inflammatory. We are not genetically designed to consume them.
Each species produces the perfect milk necessary for the young of its own species. In addition, cow's milk is loaded with antibiotics and growth hormones (which brings us hormonal imbalances) is highly insulinogenic and increases mucus production, which aggravates conditions such as asthma and allergies and carry a series of non-beneficial bacteria.
Dairy can lead to health problems like thyroid diseases, allergies, weight gain, acne, bloating and even cancer in some cases.
The most bioavailable (easiest to absorb) sources of calcium are sardines, seeds like sesame, green leafy vegetables like kale, cabbage, broccoli, etc.
WHY ORGANIC PRODUCTS?
I have noticed in my family’s health that organic has a powerful effect. For me, wisdom comes from nature, and the less man intervenes, the purer the food will be. And the idea is do the right things not only to have great food, but for our planet and our communities too, because we are all connected.
