Celiac Disease Patients Benefit From B-Vitamin Supplementation

Posted August 4, 2012

Celiac disease, an inherited condition involving the small intestine, is triggered by gluten contained in cereal grains. The disease affects nearly 1 percent of the population.

Damage to the intestinal lining reduces the ability of celiac patients to absorb various nutrients including, iron, folate, calcium, vitamin D, protein, fat and other food compounds. The most culpable gluten-containing grains that trigger celiac problems include the different species of wheat (e.g., durum, spelt, kamut), barley, rye, and their cross-bred hybrids (e.g., triticale, which is a cross between wheat and rye).
