This episode of The Brain Health Revolution Podcast is dedicated to the science behind the consumption of gluten and brain health.
There is a notion that gluten is bad for our health — especially for our brain — but does that stem from valid scientific sources, or is it just a food fashion statement?
Dean and Ayesha go through a case report of celiac disease, describe what gluten is, the science behind it, and explore the evidence for and against gluten for different populations.
