Wheat could be driving more than your digestive system crazy.
While wheat is well known to wreak havoc on the gastrointestinal health of genetically susceptible folks, such as those with celiac disease, and more recently, irritable bowel syndrome, new research published in the journal Psychiatry Research indicates that sensitivity to one of the components in wheat known as gliadin could be driving some into states of acute mania.

Nothing is more compelling than seeing improvement with your own eyes, not even a randomized, double-blinded clinical trial.
Did you know that most calcium supplements on the market are basically limestone? Yes, that's chalk. Conceal it within a capsule, a slickly glazed tablet, or in the form of a silky smooth liquid, and it is magically transformed into a "calcium supplement": easy to swallow, “good for the bones" and a very profitable commodity for both the dietary supplement and mining industries.
