Celiac disease is an inflammatory condition of the colon, a chronic condition that causes breakdown of the intestines due to a gluten allergy. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and other grains such as oats, barley and rye. This disease requires avoiding gluten foods, but some supplements can help as well.
For Starters, using some soothing mucilaginous herbs like Slippery Elm and Marshmallow or the Intestinal Soothe and Build Formula can remove irritation, reduce inflammation and encourage tissue healing.
Food Enzymes can aid in the breakdown of foods and further reduce intestinal irritation.
Taking probiotics will also improve general intestinal health.
Everybody's Fiber can soothe irritated intestinal tissue and promote healing, but it is best to start very slowly, taking small amounts and gradually increasing them as they can be tolerated.
GastroHealth may also help to reduce inflammation and speed healing of tissues.
Gentle Move may also be of beneflt.
Vitamin B 12 and magnesium supplements may also be of benefit for people suffering from Celiac disease.
