Although National Celiac Disease Awareness Day was on Monday September, 13, that doesn’t mean that it is the only day of the year we should think about this condition.

Celiac disease is a condition where the human body can not effectively process or digest gluten, which is a by-product of foods that are made of wheat. Those with Celiac disease actually experience their immune system attacking gluten particles, because the body incorrectly regards gluten as a foreign invader. The resulting experience can be extremely painful. In the case of accidental gluten ingestion, our GlutenFlam by Apex, is an excellent way to assist with gluten digestion and to help provide relief.

A large number of people suffer from Celiac disease, yet there is not a lot of awareness about this condition. The Celiac Sprue Association, whose motto is “Celiacs Helping Celiacs,” has created a website that provides information for those who suffer, know someone who is suffering, or just wants to do their part in order to help raise awareness for this crippling disease. Please feel free to visit this site for more information.
