Nutrient deficiencies in the gluten free diet-research review by Peter Bronski

As we all have heard, having celiac disease can cause some problems with absorbing key nutrients from foods. I wrote a post on it which you can find here.

Are you absorbing your nutrients like the sponge we'd like to be?

Peter Bronksi (who was a featured gluten free athlete-you can read his profile here has written a great 2 part blog post which reviews a report that was published on celiac individuals and the lack of nutrients in processed gluten free foods.
