What is gluten and what is gluten intolerance?

Gluten is the generic term for certain protein components in cereals, also known as gluten. It is found naturally in many types of grain such as wheat, spelled, rye, and oats. And actually in every food that contains the components of these types of grain, such as bread and baked goods, but also sausage and all finished products. It is used by the food industry as an emulsifier, for gelling and as a carrier for flavorings.

In people with gluten intolerance (also known as gluten intolerance), the lining of the small intestine becomes inflamed when they eat foods containing gluten. Important nutrients cannot be properly absorbed and remain undigested in the stomach. As a result, those affected suffer from deficiencies such as iron and calcium deficiency, which in turn can lead to further symptoms such as anemia and osteoporosis. It can also lead to severe digestive disorders. Classic symptoms of gluten intolerance are flatulence, diarrhea, a bloated stomach and weight loss due to insufficient food utilization.

In the case of gluten intolerance, a consistent gluten-free diet is important in order to live symptom-free. A causal treatment of the disease is not possible. There are also no medicines or other preparations that can be mixed into the food in order to better tolerate the gluten contained. 1

Which brain food is gluten-free?

So-called brain food refers to special foods that supply our brain with important nutrients and thus positively support its performance.

Drink, drink, drink!

A sufficient supply of fluids is a prerequisite for concentration and intellectual work. Therefore, at least two liters of low-calorie beverages such as water and unsweetened teas should be consumed throughout the day. The best brain food is of no use if you don't drink enough. Only in this way can the head and body be adequately supplied with oxygen and well supplied with blood.

Our brain food favorites
If you are gluten intolerant, you can eat all of the brain food we suggest. Since fruits and vegetables do not contain gluten, bananas, berries, pears, broccoli and avocados are allowed.

Bananas are particularly suitable for a very long and strenuous day, as they continuously supply the body with energy and also put you in a good mood. Strawberries are small energy bombs that stimulate the transfer of information while Pears provide the body with water and contain many trace elements and prevent low levels of concentration. The B vitamins contained in the avocado promote the ability to concentrate, while their complex carbohydrates ensure a constant blood sugar level and thus long-term performance. A busy day also calls for a peaceful and restful sleep. Here can broccoli help. It protects the brain from harmful free radicals and stimulates the oxygen supply and blood flow to the brain.
