Don't Give Up on Gluten: Try This Pill

An icy cold beer. A warm basket of bread. A heaping bowl of pasta. For many of us, these are comforts we cater to either on a regular basis, on a cheat day, or perhaps when having a spontaneous craving. But for those with celiac disease, they are the center of a red circle with a slash through it. N-O.  Celiac disease, an immune reaction to gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye, as well as many foods made with these grains, keeps a plethora of people from digging into the best bits. But thanks to the introduction of a new pill, those suffering from the disease as well as general gluten intolerance just may be able to chew off that piece of bread and wash it down with a brew once more. The pill, which was developed by researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada, is made from the yolks of chicken eggs. When ingested, this natural supplement binds to gluten in the stomach, preventing intestinal damage by neutralizing the protein. Gone may be gluten intolerance sufferers' days of toughing it out for a taste of spaghetti, only to be hit with symptoms like bloating, fatigue, and other consequential outcomes like autoimmune complications and cancer. The supplement, led by associate professor Hoon Sunwoo, has proven successful in clinical trials in Canada. The hope is to have this miracle pill available to the general public within the next 3 years in Canada, and soon after in the United States and Europe. What are your thoughts? Would you be willing to take this pill - or does it seem too good to be true? Source: POPSUGAR Do you follow us on Instagram?
