CAN YOU DITCH THE INFLAMMATORY GRAINS?
Grains contain anti-nutrients like gluten, phytates, lectins and more. These can bind to nutrients, cause inflammation and lead to intestinal permeability.

It should. Regulation of chemicals is inadequate and we have no idea the harm that is being caused to human health.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO EXERCISE SMARTER NOT MORE?
