So it appears that going gluten-free is currently in vogue with more and more celebrities professing to be allergic to gluten or rumored to have gone all gluten-free. Amongst them are Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr, Jessica Alba and even Victoria Beckham. These celebrities are either endorsing the diet for weight loss or improved performance, or just going gluten-free because they perceive foods without gluten as the healthier option. The popularity is also fueled by the fact that there are increasingly more gluten-free choices available in the supermarkets, bakery and restaurants. So is going gluten-free a necessity or just a food fad? Is it really healthier? And more importantly, what impact does it have on our hair and skin?
