If you're struggling for energy you may want to consider looking at your diet more closely. The truth is, wheat is a source of carbohydrates that give you energy. The problem is, as humans, unlike cows, we lack the enzymes in our saliva and stomach to fully breakdown and absorb gluten for nutritional use.
Gluten is a composite of proteins in wheat which is responsible for bloating, stiffness and gastrointestinal distress. Digestion is the biggest thing in utilizing energy you consume and also helps tremendously in sleeping and better recovery.
1 in 133 Americans are effected by wheat allergies and celiac disease, which is an autoimmune condition triggered by exposure to gluten which causes everything from severe stomach conditions to fatigue.
The good news is, there are alternatives to eating wheat in order to get the necessary carbs in your system to give you proper energy. Foods such as rice, oats, corn and quinoa are excellent sources of carbohydrates. Consider these alternatives to your diet as your carbohydrate source and start feeling the difference.
