Latest Research

This study found cognitive impairments associated with brain fog are psychologically and neurologically real and improve with adherence to a gluten-free diet in patients with celiac disease. Current evidence suggests this is due to a causal factor not directly related to exposure to gluten and further research is needed to define the mechanism by which gluten ingestion causes brain fog.

This study found that mode of delivery doesn’t seem to have an effect on the risk of developing celiac disease in children who are genetically predisposed.

This systematic review proves that there is no substantiation that “adrenal fatigue” is an actual medical condition. Therefore, adrenal fatigue is still a myth.

This study found there is a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes by regular coffee drinkers of 3-4 cups a day. The effects are likely due to the presence of chlorogenic acids and caffeine, the two constituents of coffee in higher concentration after the roasting process.

The overall health benefit of an improved vitamin D status may be more important than the possibly increased CMM risk resulting from carefully increasing UV exposure. Important scientific facts behind this judgement are given.
