Celiac Disease and Depression

 Depression: Did you know that anyone with undiagnosed #Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance can have a malabsorption of tryptophan? Tryptophan is needed to produce serotonin. Serotonin is believed to be responsible for stabilizing our moods and is found primarily in the digestive track. Another theory as to why depression occurs is due to the auto-immune attack on the nervous system when gluten in ingested or even inflammation of the brain. A gluten free diet can often reverse depression. How cool is that?! If you can relate or know a loved one who can relate, please “like” or “share” this to spread awareness. *Lauren Lucille (celiac diva)
