More about Virtue Sweetener

Because I wanted a benign and healthy way for followers of the Wheat Belly lifestyle to recreate dishes such as chocolate chip cookies, cheesecake, and pies with none of the health problems of grains or sugars, I helped Wheat-Free Market develop its Virtue Sweetener product.

Yes, you could do without such sweeteners. But I learned long ago when I introduced Wheat Belly concepts to patients in my cardiology practice that having options while entertaining friends, during holidays, and pleasing kids was important for staying on course on this lifestyle. Before I understood how to use such natural sweeteners, patients would come back from, say, the Thanksgiving holiday 14 pounds heavier with disastrous changes in blood sugar, triglycerides, blood pressure, and small LDL particles that increased risk for heart attack. Given access to benign natural sweeteners, patients would come back with no weight gain, no change in blood sugar, no rise in small LDL, or any other measure—they would just enjoy the holiday with no observable downside.

It has also become clear in the last two years that synthetic sweeteners such as sucralose, saccharine, and aspartame have unhealthy implications, specifically adverse changes in bowel flora composition that explain why these sweeteners have been associated with weight gain and increased type 2 diabetes risk.

So Virtue Sweetener has emerged front and center because it allows you to end your wonderful grain-free meal with, say, a delicious German Chocolate Brownie or Peanut Butter Fudge while not dealing with any adverse health effects. This remains true even if you are strictly limiting carbs on your low-carb diet or even ketogenic lifestyle.

There are two components in Virtue Sweetener: monkfruit and erythritol. Let’s talk about each one:

Monk fruit–More than a healthy sweetener?

Among our choices of natural sweeteners, monk fruit is the clear winner: zero calories, no weight gain, clean taste without bitter aftertaste, and—because of its concentrated sweetness—can slash cost when combined with other natural sweeteners like erythritol. But there are effects of this interesting non-caloric sweetener that go beyond its ability to just help us create healthy muffins or cookies. Scientific studies are now identifying important effects that add to health.

Much of this research got underway because of monk fruit’s long history as an effective home remedy to relieve sore throat and cough. Research studies have documented an anti-inflammatory effect of monk fruit. But there are additional beneficial effects that have been identified, including reduced blood sugar, an antioxidant effect, blocking fat accumulation in fat cells, and anti-inflammatory effects. A number of studies have also pinpointed effects that reduce potential for cancer. To date, these observations have only been made in experimental models and not through any human trials, but those will be emerging near-future. A sample of the scientific observations that have been made are listed below.

In the meantime, enjoy your coffee sweetened with monk fruit, or cookies or pies in which sugar has been replaced by this clean-tasting, non-caloric sweetener. Perhaps you will also obtain some important health benefits from monk fruit, as well.

Monk fruit is labeled Siraitia grosvenori or Momordica grosvenori in scientific studies. The active components of monk fruit are called mogrosides.


Experimental animal models suggest that monk fruit mogrosides provide protection from developing diabetes and reduces blood sugar:

Weight control

Monk fruit-derived mogrosides appear to block the cellular changes that lead to fat accumulation:

Mogrol derived from Siraitia grosvenorii mogrosides suppresses 3T3-L1 adipocyte differentiation by reducing cAMP-response element-binding protein phosphorylation and increasing AMP-activated protein kinase phosphorylation. PLoS One. 2016 Sep 1;11(9):e0162252.

Antioxidative effects

Monk fruit is an antioxidant, including blocking oxidation of LDL particles that can lead to heart disease:

Anti-inflammatory effects

Monk fruit mogrosides are anti-inflammatory:

Erythritol–A natural fruit sugar

Along with monk fruit, erythritol is one of the two natural sweeteners contained in Virtue Sweetener. Erythritol is one of the best choices among natural sweeteners because of its clean flavor, lack of effect on blood sugar or insulin, and even provides modest health benefits.

Erythritol is a sugar found naturally in fruit such as apples and oranges but is produced from glucose in greater quantities through a fermentation process using yeast.

Erythritol yields no increase in blood sugar even if as much as 15 teaspoons are ingested all at once. Unlike monkfruit that has no calories, erythritol has a small number of calories: less than 1.6 calories per teaspoon—90% less than regular table sugar. It also does not stimulate insulin release, unlike synthetic sweeteners such as sucralose (Splenda) and aspartame. Studies have demonstrated modest reductions blood sugar and hemoglobin A1c (reflecting the previous 90 days’ of blood sugars) in people with diabetes who use erythritol as their preferred sweetener.

Like monkfruit, erythritol is not just safe, but also has modest beneficial health effects. Erythritol yields protective effects on dental health, shown to reduce the number of cavities and plaque in several clinical studies, unlike sugar that, of course, promotes tooth decay.

Unlike most other sugar alcohols, such as sorbitol, mannitol, and maltitol, erythritol does not cause bloating, gas, or loose stools when used in the quantities specified in our recipes. This is because only a small proportion of erythritol passes through the intestinal tract.

Erythritol is about 70% as sweet as table sugar. It also has a slight “cooling” sensation, similar to that of peppermint, though less intense. It may therefore confer a modest cooling sensation to baked products and other sweets.

In Virtue Sweetener, we rely on a greater proportion of monk fruit, which is much sweeter than erythritol. Erythritol is thereby used to add bulk, or volume, to Virtue Sweetener, while the monk fruit with its intense sweetening power allows you to use far less total combined sweetener, thereby yielding a considerable cost savings.

Putting aside taste, safety, and potential health benefits, how about cost? Here is a cost comparison I did recently: Virtue is the clear winner, costing as much as 80% less than other natural sweeteners. You can enjoy dishes naturally sweetened without destroying your grocery budget.

Given its natural sourcing, safety profile, potential health benefits, and cost, Virtue Sweetener is everything I intended it to be, an advantage to all of us following the Wheat Belly lifestyle to reclaim control over health and weight.

Reviews of The Wheat Belly Slim Guide

photo: book cover: Wheat Belly Slim Guide

The reviews are coming in for the recently released Wheat Belly Slim Guide.

I wrote this book to help everyone have greater ease and success in making safe choices at the grocery store, restaurants, and elsewhere. I wanted this resource to be portable and have concise listings of such important items as safe natural sweeteners, safe grain-free flours, safe grain-free thickeners for sauces and gravies, carb counting basics, preferred sources for prebiotic fibers, grocery lists, safe alcoholic beverages, some popular recipes, and more—i.e., all Wheat Belly day-to-day information essentials.

To my delight, the reception has been phenomenal. Take a look at some of the reviews readers posted on Amazon:

Life changing information!!!
By Rexy Lou on January 14, 2017
I have been following Dr. Davis and living the Wheat Belly lifestyle for over a year and a half (as of 1/14/17). I’ve been grain, sugar and potato free for that long as well! I love ‘Wheat Belly Total Health’ is the most comprehensive book that he has out! I’ve lost close to 130 lbs and reversed my diabetes and SO much more!

So, what about ‘Wheat Belly Slim Guide.’ I pre-ordered it, read it, and I love it!! It’s so small and yet covers so much! It gives you all the essentials that you need to get started as well as a great guide to carry around with you! I pulled it out a few times in the grocery store the other day. Great information! Even which brands to buy on a few items. My guess is that once you read this, get grain free and feel so much better than you ever dreamed possible again, you will want to know more!”

“Great to add to your Wheat Belly library if you already have others too!!

Simple Starter Guide for Grain-Free Eating
By Rene M. on January 26, 2017
This is the perfect resource to hand to anyone who wants a quick and easy guide to get started with the grain/sugar-free lifestyle. I have all of Dr. Davis’s books and have been doing this since August 2014, with radically positive results to my health and weight. However, I find that when I try to explain to friends or family how to get started on this, they find it overwhelming. While it’s true that it’s challenging to have to re-learn what it actually means to have healthy eating habits, it can be done … and it’s worth it. I no longer have food cravings and have kept off the 38 pounds I lost almost 2.5 years now. I no longer suffer from joint pain, flaky skin, IBS symptoms, and Vitamin D deficiency. I’m in my late 50s and my cholesterol and triglyceride levels are better than when I was in my 20s.

My health and life have gotten a zillion times better. There’s so much I’ve learned from Dr Davis
By Susan on January 23, 2017
Since I’ve been wheat free for 6½ years and grain free for 4¼ years I’ve been following Dr Davis. My health and life have gotten a zillion times better. There’s so much I’ve learned from Dr Davis. I just bought the Slim Guide and it’s great to carry with me. He updates information continually and this book is one more way to learn new things and stay on track. I’m 70 years old.

Life Changing
By pearl667 on January 28, 2017
At a trip to a local health food store, the owner started talking to me about the Wheat Belly books and Dr. Davis. The concept of giving up wheat and grains was very intriguing and I picked up Wheat Belly Total Health, then the cookbook, the Detox book and now this Slim Guide. All of the books provide valuable information, some of it overlap’s but with each book I get a few new ideas, recipes and tips to navigate this very different lifestyle. I started in November and was completely compliant by mid December. It was the best holiday season I ever had because I got through it with no weight gain, even lost a couple of pounds. But the best part of the lifestyle is the freedom from food cravings. If you are a slave to your hunger and food cravings, these books will be your saving grace. The Slim Guide is great because there are helpful dining out tips as well which the other books don’t include. I bought the digital version so I can have it with me on my phone at all times for quick reference. Really great book!

I love it.
By KennyBenny on January 23, 2017
Just received my copy of Dr. Davis’ newest Wheat Belly book……I love it……I have all of his other books……And while there may be some duplicity of information across some or all, the additional information contained in each is priceless and worthwhile…… you just cannot take your health for granted……..This smaller book, almost a cheat notes copy of the Wheat Belly way of eating, reminds the reader what is acceptable and what is not to maintain the low-carb, grain-free lifestyle…..Do yourself a favor, just get it and start…..You will never look back and you will definitely feel better to boot!

The benefits and risks of folic acid supplementation from Science-Based Medicine

The benefits and risks of folic acid supplementation

Could a vitamin with proven benefits in one group cause harm to another? That’s the growing concern with folic acid, the vitamin that dramatically reduces the risk of neural tube birth defects such a spina bifida. Studies designed to explore the possible benefits of folic acid for heart disease, stroke and cancer are giving out some worrying signs: At best, folic acid is ineffective, and at worst it may be increasing the risks of some cancers. So what does this say about routine supplementation for the typical healthy individual, and its overall risk and benefit?

Folate (vitamin B9) is an essential nutrient found green, leafy vegetables, broccoli, peas, corn, oranges, grains, cereals, and meats. Folate has important roles in the synthesis of DNA, and consequently cell division. Significant folate deficiency can lead to macrocytic anemia. Folic acid, a synthetic form of folate, is used in multivitamins supplements because it is better absorbed.

Folic acid’s benefits in pregnancy are well documented. Supplementation before conception, and in the first few weeks of pregnancy, significantly and substantially lower the risk of several different birth defects, including neural tube defects (NTDs). The neural tube is the embryonic precursor to the brain and spinal column. NTDs include very serious defects like spinal bifida and anencephaly, birth without part of the brain.


The stakes are high, and because the neural tube forms so early in pregnancy (day 26 to 28), deficiencies must be corrected before a woman knows she is pregnant. This has led to public health strategies that mandate supplementation in food products: In both the United States and Canada, folic acid has been added to white flour since the late 1990’s, where it finds its way into baked goods like bread. Following food fortification, neural tube defects have subsequently dropped.

In addition to food fortification, women that could become pregnant are generally advised to take a multivitamin containing at least 0.4mg of folic acid daily. Women at high risk of NTDs may be advised to take higher doses. But as higher doses of folic acid can mask the symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency, higher doses warrant medical advice and supervision.

Even with fortification, it’s clear there are still opportunities to improve folic acid consumption in pregnancy. A Canadian population study showed that 20% of women of childbearing age failed to have appropriate folic acid levels in their blood. And while virtually no-one was dangerously deficient, over 40% had levels that would be considered high.

Beyond pregnancy

Observational trials have correlated a diet rich in fruits and vegetables with a lower risk of diseases like colorectal cancer. Based on this epidemiologic evidence, several randomized controlled trials were initiated investigating the effect of the B vitamins (including folic acid) on cancer risk. Folic acid held particular promise because of its proven effects preventing neural tube birth defects.

But the effects were not as expected.

The Warning Signals

That folic acid may interfere with cancer has been known since the 1940’s. The chemotherapy drug methotrexate is an antifolate agent that blocks the metabolism of folic acid, developed after it was noted that a diet deficient in folic acid helped patients with leukemia.

Studies of folic acid supplementation are raising flags about the potential risks of therapy, possibly as a result of excessive consumption. One of the most startling was a study that looked at folic acid supplementation in patients with colorectal adenomas, which are cancer precursors. Participants were randomized to folic acid 1mg or placebo for up to six years. While it was hypothesized that folic acid would provide a protective effect, the results were disappointing. Not only did folic acid have no effect on adenoma incidence (even in those with low folate status),  there was a significant increase in the risk of non-colorectal cancers (10.5% vs. 6.3%), due mainly to an excess of prostate cancers.

Futher worrying evidence emerged in 2009, when a Norwegian study of heart failure patients was published. Researchers randomized almost 7000 patients to folic acid and vitamin B12 versus other vitamins or placebo. The vitamins significantly raised the risks of both cancer and all-cause mortality, driven mainly by more cases of lung cancer. On balance, looking at heart disease, folic acid supplementation don’t seem to have any persuasive effects, either. In combination with other B-vitamins to lower homocysteine levels it hasn’t been shown to have meaningful effects on cardiovascular disease prevention, either.

The same worrying cancer signal has appeared with breast cancer in postmenopausal women, even while dietary folate seems to be beneficial. And in studies looking at prostate cancer, when folic acid is combined with other vitamins, the data are unclear.

So could fortification be causing harm? While correlations have been drawn between food fortification and population studies of colorectal cancer, causality hasn’t been established. Screening rates or other factors could be contributing. Still, the idea is troubling, even though the harms (if real) are slight compared to the demonstrable andsignificant benefits fortification has played  in reducing NTDs.  REST AT SITE

Wheat Belly All-Purpose Baking Mix

photo: bowl of Wheat Belly All-Purpose Baking Mix

I first introduced the Wheat Belly All-Purpose Mix in the Wheat Belly 30-Minute (Or Less!) Cookbook and it has since become a grain-free baking staple for many people, helping navigate the Wheat Belly lifestyle. It proved especially popular after the Baking Mix was featured in a Dr. Oz segment (the above photo is from the show).

Unlike gluten-free baking mixes, the Wheat Belly All-Purpose Baking Mix contains NO cornstarch, rice flour, tapioca starch, or potato flour, as these four common gluten-free replacements cause extravagant weight gain, raise blood sugar sky-high, and provoke inflammation, effects we most definitely do not want living the Wheat Belly way. NOBODY should be using those awful gluten-free baking mixes.

The Wheat Belly All-Purpose Baking Mix was the end-result of a number of trial-and-error efforts to create a versatile baking mix to make cookies, muffins, cakes, and other grain-free baked dishes. As many of you have learned, we obtain best results in grain-free baking by using combinations of meals and flours: better structure, texture, rise, and flavor. For that reason, the All-Purpose Baking Mix is a blend of ingredients that provide these qualities. And, by mixing up a batch beforehand, you can also save time.

Of course, if you don’t want to bother to make your All-Purpose Baking Mix, Wheat-Free Market makes a pre-mixed version based on the original Wheat Belly recipe. In the U.S., you can order their All-Purpose Baking Mix here. In Canada, the Low Carb Grocery carries the Wheat-Free Market All-Purpose Baking Mix.

Makes 5 cups

4 cups almond meal/flour
1 cup ground golden flaxseed
¼ cup coconut flour
3 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground psyllium seed (optional)

In a large bowl, whisk together the almond meal/flour, flaxseed, coconut flour, baking soda, and psyllium seed (if desired). Store in an airtight container, preferably in the refrigerator.

For more recipes using the Wheat Belly All-Purpose Baking Mix, see the Wheat Belly 30-Minute Cookbook or the recipes on Wheat-Free Market.

WBB: Could Grains Cause Autoimmunity?

Could Grains Cause Autoimmunity?

The prolamin proteins of grains— the gliadin of wheat, secalin of rye, hordein of barley, and zein of corn— initiate the small intestinal process that cause a perfect storm in our bodies. And they do so in more than one way. You could even argue that prolamin proteins are perfectly crafted to create autoimmunity.

Prolamin proteins of grains are masters at molecular mimicry. The prolamin proteins have been found to trigger immune responses to a number of human proteins, including the synapsin protein of the nervous system; the transglutaminase enzyme found in the liver, muscle, brain, and other organs; the endomysium of muscle cells; and the calreticulin of virtually every cell in the body.

If sequences in foreign proteins resemble sequences in a protein of the human body, a misdirected immune attack can be launched, sending antibodies, T lymphocytes, macrophages, tumor necrosis factor, and other weapons of the immune apparatus against the organ. Some targeted human proteins, such as transglutaminase and calreticulin, are ubiquitous and can therefore be associated with autoimmune inflammation of just about any organ of the body, from brain to pancreas.

Molecular mimicry is not the only means by which grains provoke autoimmunity; they also do so by increasing intestinal permeability. We’ve discussed how prolamins can resist digestion. When they remain intact, they bind to the intestinal lining and initiate a unique and complex process that opens the normal intestinal barriers to the contents of the intestines, such as food components, and to bacterial components and by-products, such as bacterial lipopolysaccharide— a potent driver of inflammation. The multistep process initiated by grain proteins was worked out through research performed by Alessio Fasano, MD, and his team at the University of Maryland, extraordinary work that makes the confident connection between the diseases of autoimmunity and grains. Grain prolamins increase the expression of the zonulin protein that, in turn, opens up the normal barriers—“ tight junctions”— between intestinal cells, allowing unwanted peptides and bacterial components into the bloodstream, where they can trigger an immune response. Besides gliadin and related prolamins, the only other trigger of this form of intestinal permeability are intestinal infections, such as cholera or dysbiosis.

This means that gliadin and related proteins of grains are the first step in initiating autoimmunity, a mechanism that has nothing to do with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease. Susceptibility to various autoimmune diseases can also be determined by genetic patterns, but in a staggering proportion of cases, the initiating event boils down to a single factor: consumption of grains.

Many conditions respond to grain elimination within days. For instance, joint pain in the fingers and wrists, acid reflux, and the bowel urgency of irritable bowel syndrome typically disappear within 5 days of your final pancake. Not so with the phenomena of autoimmunity. The swelling, joint pain, stiffness, and disfigurement of rheumatoid arthritis is going to take longer to respond to grain elimination, typically weeks to months, and occasionally even longer.

Perhaps this should come as no surprise, as the complex mechanisms of autoimmune inflammation develop over years. Likewise, changes in lymphocyte responses, clearance of antibodies, reductions in fluid, localized inflammation, and a wide range of other phenomena reverse themselves over time. The key is to eliminate all grains, and then wait; don’t declare the effort a failure if 2 weeks pass and nothing has happened. Patience is key. That’s why I liken the reversal of autoimmune conditions to slowing a locomotive or turning an ocean liner— neither occurs quickly, but they both happen with time.

It is also important to correct the other abnormal phenomena that make autoimmunity worse. The majority of people with autoimmune conditions fail to address factors that play an important role in permitting or sustaining autoimmunity; by addressing these factors, you stack the odds of complete relief from autoimmunity in your favor. You can find these discussions in the Wheat Belly Total Health and the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox.

Yours in grainless health,

IHB: BiotiQuest: A Source for Innovative Probiotics

Sourced from: Dr. Davis Infinite Health Blog, authored by Dr. Davis, original posting date there: 2023-06-02

BiotiQuest: A Source for Innovative Probiotics

BiotiQuest products page

The Denver-based probiotic company, BiotiQuest, was founded by Martha Carlin, whose husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2002. She quickly recognized that the current pharmaceutical “treatments” for her husband’s condition reduced phenomena such as tremor, but did nothing to slow or stop progression of the disease. It therefore leads to progressive debilitation, inability to perform routine daily activities, and dementia. She abandoned her real estate career and devoted her efforts to uncovering microbiome solutions to Parkinson’s disease and other conditions. Martha is someone who is not about selling products, but about finding solutions.

Martha partnered with academic microbiologist, Raul Cano, PhD, to advance the science of probiotics. One of the unique insights that Dr. Cano has explored is the concept of microbial “collaboration.” Over many conversations I’ve had with them, I have come to appreciate that they are at the cutting-edge of probiotic formulation.

Microbes are a lot like humans: We don’t live in isolation, but as couples, families, communities. Bacteria in the human gastrointestinal (GI) tract are the same: They don’t live in isolation but associate through collaborative “guilds” or “consortia.” Microbe A produces a metabolite needed by microbe B; microbe B produces something needed by microbe C that, in turn produces something needed by microbe A. Unfortunately, nearly all commercial probiotics ignore this concept and are nothing more than haphazard collections of microbes thought to be beneficial with no effort to take advantage of these collaborative effects.

Dr. Cano is a pioneer in this concept of microbial collaboration. (Among the projects Dr. Cano has pioneered over his career includes “paleomicrobiology,” resurrecting ancient microbes. For instance, he isolated a fungus from the stomach of a 40 million year old bumblebee preserved in amber, characterized it, and then brewed beer from it. He is also a pioneer in bioremediation of soil depleted of its microbiome by application of herbicides and pesticides.) Dr. Cano has incorporated the concept of collaborative guilds into formulating BiotiQuest products such as Sugar Shift and Simple Slumber.

In an informal experience with the Sugar Shift probiotic, 20 non-diabetic members from my Inner Circle were given the product and asked to track fasting fingerstick blood sugars every morning for 4 weeks. The average reduction in fasting blood sugar was 9.8 mg/dl, a magnitude of reduction on a par with agents such as metformin and other drugs for type 2 diabetes (with none of the side-effects of pharmaceuticals). Dr. Cano has also completed a formal human clinical trial with this product that also demonstrated weight loss and other metabolic benefits; he expects to be reporting full results near-future. He tells me that among the reasons why Sugar Shift achieves reduction in blood sugar is that the microbes contained in the formulation collaborate to consume sugars such as sucrose, glucose, and fructose in the GI tract. This formulation also reduces endotoxemia, i.e., the entry of microbial breakdown products into the bloodstream, a fundamental driving process behind insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, hypertension and numerous other conditions.

Their BiotiQuest brand currently has five human probiotic products formulated by following this principle:

Sugar Shift-–to support blood sugar management
Simple Slumber—to support sleep
Heart Centered—to support factors that are associated with heart health
Antibiotic Antidote—to assist in recovery after a course of antibiotics
Ideal Immunity—to support a better immune response

They have also released a new product called Yield & Shield for generating healthier soil to support your garden, part of Dr. Cano’s soil bioremediation efforts for soils disrupted by pesticides and herbicides.

The science is ongoing. But BiotiQuest products are at the forefront of probiotic formulation. Members of my Inner Circle community are reporting a number of interesting side-benefits by taking these probiotics, benefits that were unexpected.

To take a look at their products, go to Enter discount code UNDOC15 (case-sensitive) for a 15% discount for readers of my blog.

Biotiquest is also the newest sponsor of my Defiant Health podcast. My team and I are financially compensated for speaking about their products.

lama8004: I think the rec from TYP was 90 - 100. I kept mine around 95 with 10000iu in winter and 5000iu in summer..
I just noticed the change to 50 to 70 K 6000iu....woe is me...hard to know what to do.
Magnesium doesn’t set well with me.

searcher7: Opinions on the ideal level of 25-hydroxy vitamin D vary. Vitamin D researcher Dr. Michael Holick claimed the ideal level is 40-60 ng/ml. Vitamin D3 should be taken with magnesium and vitamin K2 to avoid imbalances and side effects.

WBB: Grains: Perfect Obesogens

Grains: Perfect Obesogens

Last week, I discussed the negative effects that grains, particularly gliadin-derived opiates, have on the human brain. This week, I want to discuss yet another ill-effect that they have had on your previously never ending battle with unwanted weight. I say previously, because you can win this battle.

You can conquer those cravings once and for all, but to do so you must understand how to disarm the enemy. Imagine triumphantly enjoying your healthy new lifestyle and wardrobe.

As I have discussed in Wheat Belly Total Health:

Gliadin-derived opiates drive appetite in an “I can never get enough to eat” way.Tweet this!

The amylopectin A carbohydrate drives blood sugar highs, followed by blood sugar lows that launch a 2-hour cycle of hunger.

But there’s more…

3D illustration of WGA molecule


Grains also contain wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), a lectin protein in wheat. The lectin proteins of grains are, by design, nature’s form of bodyguards. These toxins discourage molds, fungi, and insects from eating seeds of plants.


The lectins of rye, barley, and rice are structurally identical to WGA and share all its properties and are also often referred to as “WGA.” The only substantial difference is that rye, barley, and rice express a single form of lectin, while genetically more complex wheat expresses up to three different forms. WGA is indigestible and toxic, resistant to any breakdown in the human body, and unaltered by heat (cooking, baking, frying) or fermentation. WGA wreaks ill effects on everyone, regardless of whether you have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or no digestive issues at all.

WGA mimics the effects of insulin on fat cells.

When WGA encounters a fat cell, it acts just as if it were insulin, inhibiting the activation of fat release and blocking weight loss while making the body more reliant on sugar sources for energy.

WGA is also suspected of blocking leptin, the hormone of satiety charged with signaling your brain with a “stop eating” message when your stomach is full after, say, two trips to the all-you-can-eat buffet. In the presence of WGA, this signaling system is blocked, causing you to eat even after you are full, after you have taken in what you require for sustenance, making the chocolate cake, peach pie, and cheesecake at the end of the buffet irresistible— even when common sense, good judgment, and every other body signal tell you that you’ve had enough.

schematic: chemical structure of amylopectin-AMaking matters worse, high blood insulin provoked by amylopectin A causes belly fat to grow, viewed on the surface as a “muffin top” or “love handles” and seen on imaging tests such as CT scans as deep visceral fat encircling the abdominal organs. This belly fat is inflammatory fat that drives insulin levels up even further.

Insulin causes fat storage and prevents mobilization of fat for energy.Tweet this!

Eat grains, increase appetite, provoke high insulin, grow belly fat, increase inflammation, provoke even higher blood insulin— around and around it goes, a vicious cycle that ensures weight gain. The entire process being initiated by a friendly looking piece of warm sourdough bread, blueberry muffin or bowl of organic oatmeal.

Therefore, I call wheat and its closely related grains not just perfect chronic poisons, but also perfect obesogens: foods that are perfectly crafted to make you fat, especially in the abdomen, what I call a wheat belly.

Yours in grainless health,

Dr. William Davis

Undoctored: An Excerpt

photo: Undoctored book, spine and cover

Here’s an excerpt from my new book, Undoctored: Why Healthcare Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor. In Undoctored, I take the lessons learned from the worldwide Wheat Belly experience and put them to work in a new program that helps reverse hundreds of health conditions–because conventional healthcare has abdicated its responsibility and is no longer about reclaiming health.

The Undoctored movement will get you and your family back on track, having cracked the code on health, slenderness, and higher levels of life performance. The book will be released May 9th, 2017, but is available for pre-order on Amazon.


Undoctored: An Excerpt

Many modern doctors hold themselves up as all-knowing, capable of managing every aspect of health, from delivery to death, from vaccination to senility. I know because I was guilty of this. The “I’m-the-doctor, you’re-the patient relationship” has been frozen in time since the days of Hippocrates. Despite the high-tech image, old-fashioned methods are still used to maintain paternalistic authority. Doctoring means wearing a white coat to impress ignorant, helpless patients, the appearance of authority designed to exploit the power of the placebo, long waiting room stays erected as barriers to the privilege of gaining the wisdom of presumed experts, while the monolithic world of medical billing remains impenetrable. All of it seems positively fossilized in an age of immediate information access, on-demand videos, drone deliveries, and the democratization of discussion via social media. Doctors hold themselves up as the gatekeepers of health information and regard the average person as ill-informed and inexperienced, a health simpleton who is powerless in administering any aspect of health. In what other industry can the provider of a service operate with such disregard for customer satisfaction? Imagine buying a car from a salesperson who used intimidation to raise prices, refused to answer questions, and brushed off your concerns as those of a naive automotive nonexpert; I doubt you’d drive off happily in a new hybrid convertible.

The information tide has shifted. Public ignorance in health may have been the rule in 1950, but rapid dissemination of information in our age has usurped this lopsided relationship, making the paternalistic doctor-patient relationship of the past as relevant as trepanation (drilling holes in the skull—yes, a real practice) to treat migraines. You have access to the same information as your doctor. And it doesn’t involve leafing through dozens of thick volumes of the Index Medicus and then having to retrieve a study from dusty stacks of medical journals, like I did during my medical training. The newly leveled playing field of immediately accessible information means thata new clinical study read by your neurologist or gynecologist is available to you with a few mouse clicks. The cultlike, guarded monopoly over health information is long gone, replaced by immediate, widespread information readily accessible to everyone. The resources available to us have exploded. And they continue to increase at an exponential rate.

The growth in medical information means that the education your doctor received during medical school and training is dusty, moth-ridden, and obsolete. Information doubled every 50 years in 1950, every 7 years in 1980, and every 3.5 years in 2010. If current trends continue, it will double every 73 days by 2020. And information growth is not just within medicine but also in other areas that impact human health, such as toxicology, due to the proliferation of industrial toxins in the environment that disrupt endocrine health and increase risk for cancer, or environmental science and urban planning, since city noise, smog, congestion, and stress all affect various aspects of health. No living human can keep up with the information load and hope to provide up-to-date health care, no matter how smart, how hardworking, how fancy their equipment, or how many operating rooms they have. Dealing with this boom in health information requires new tools to organize it all, put it to practical use, and extract maximum health benefit.

What if we combined the newly found informational freedom provided by Internet search capabilities with the human feedback tool of social media and the rise in direct-to-consumer testing that circumvents the doctor, then threw in a little benign guidance from sources that do not seek to profit from providing it? You might just be on your way to wielding considerable authority over your own health. When you apply the methods unique to the Information Age, unconcerned with ritual, intimidation, and profit, to your health, some pretty darned incredible things can happen: Weight melts away effortlessly, joint pain and skin rashes recede, acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome symptoms reverse within days, fibromyalgia and ulcerative colitis begin a powerful retreat, prescription medications become superfluous—all by sharing in a growing collective information exchange.

Insulin is a carcinogen

The science is clear: Insulin is carcinogenic.

People with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome/pre-diabetes, and type 2 diabetes have high levels of blood insulin, typically many times higher than normal. People with these conditions are at increased risk for various cancers such as breast, colon, prostate, and pancreas (Gallagher 2015). Type 2 diabetics are also more likely to die of their cancer than non-diabetics. While the cause-effect connection is due to a number of factors (high blood sugar, inflammation, high circulating estrogen levels, increased insulin-like growth factors, etc.), much of the increased cancer risk is due to increased levels of insulin.

So what drug is commonly prescribed to people with type 2 diabetes who already have high insulin levels? More insulin. Injected insulin further raises blood insulin levels in people who start with high insulin levels. What would you predict would be the result? You got it: lots more cancer (Hemkens 2009; Suissa 2011). Risk appears to be greatest with the glargine form of insulin (e.g., Lantus, Toujeo).

What foods raise levels of blood insulin the most, triggering insulin resistance that, in turn, causes even higher levels of insulin? The amylopectin A of grains, sucrose (table sugar), and sugars containing plentiful fructose (agave, high-fructose corn syrup, honey, maple syrup). What foods are people with insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, and type 2 diabetes advised to eat by conventional dietary guidelines, including that of the American Diabetes Association? Yup: lots of grains, unrestricted sugars, and reduced fats.

Are you beginning to appreciate the depth of ignorance (or deception) that operates in conventional thinking? Start with flawed dietary advice that causes high blood sugar followed by high blood insulin. Over time, insulin resistance develops, worsened by inflammation, visceral fat growth, and hormonal distortions (e.g., high estrogen, low testosterone). Blood sugars rise and John Q. Primary Care steps in to prescribe insulin.

How to reverse the entire high-insulin mess? Reverse the factors that raise blood sugar, insulin, and insulin resistance. What was the first “domino”? Grains, sugars, and fructose-containing sweeteners. It’s really incredibly simple. This is why people with type 2 diabetes who follow the Wheat Belly path of eliminating all grains, restricting net carb exposure to 15 grams or less per meal, and avoid fructose-rich sweeteners are typically NON-diabetic over several weeks to months (delayed due to the transient insulin resistance generated by weight loss and the fatty acids that flood the bloodstream during mobilization of fat stores).

You may also begin to appreciate that the healthcare system causes pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes, then profits from its “treatment,” failing to provide consumers with a common sense, logical, and scientific solution that has been obvious all along.

When to have L. Reuteri for maximum sleep benefit
Is lunch or supper time the best time to have L. Reuteri yogurt for maximum sleep benefit?

Dr. Davis : I obtain deep sleep by consuming the L reuteri yogurt any time of the day. However, some report being too sleepy if consumed during the daytime, so they consume as a dessert after dinner. 

Individual experiences therefore vary.

WBB: Which beers are safe for the Wheat Belly lifestyle?

Which beers are safe for the Wheat Belly lifestyle?

Football games, tailgating and beer always seem to go hand in hand. This can be problematic when you are adhering to a grain-free lifestyle. Virtually all ales, beers, malt liquors, and lagers are brewed from grains.

Thus, there are measurable grain protein residues present in most beers— generally 1 to 2 grams per 12 ounces. This is not a lot, but it’s enough to stimulate appetite, provoke inflammation, and initiate autoimmunity.

People with celiac disease or the most extreme forms of gluten sensitivity should avoid beers altogether, except those designated gluten-free. I have my doubts about even the gluten-free products, since all are brewed from the seeds of grasses.

photo: beer in a glass mugIf a beer is designated gluten-free, no gliadin or gluten should be present (the official cutoff is fewer than 20 parts per million), but there is still potential for uncertain reactions from other grain proteins. Those who do not have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity seem to do okay with beers brewed from sorghum and rice but which also include barley malt, though you may have to experiment and see how your body reacts to these beers before you decide whether or not to consume them regularly. Of all alcoholic beverages, beer is the most hazardous, so be careful.



If you must drink beer, here are 5 of the least problematic brews. Tweet this!

  1. Bard’s gluten-free beers. Brewed from sorghum without barley, this beer is truly gluten-free. As with many gluten-free beers, however, it’s high in carbs, and therefore you should not drink more than one per day (14.2 g carbohydrates per 12-ounce bottle).
  2. Bud Light and Michelob Ultra. Bud Light, made by Anheuser-Busch, is brewed from rice but also contains barley malt. The most severely gluten-sensitive people should therefore not indulge in this beer because of the gluten content. But most of us who are just avoiding wheat but who aren’t gluten-sensitive can safely consume this brand without exposing ourselves to the undesirable effects of grains. One 12-ounce bottle contains 6.6 g of carbohydrates. Michelob Ultra is likewise brewed from rice with barley malt. It is also low in carbohydrates, with 2.6 g per 12-ounce
  3. Redbridge. Redbridge is brewed from sorghum and is not brewed with wheat or barley. It is therefore confidently gluten-free, though it’s still brewed from the seed of a grass. The carbohydrate content is a bit high at 16.4 g per bottle; have more than one beer and the carbohydrates begin to stack up.
  4. Green’s gluten-free beers. UK brewer Green’s provides several gluten-free choices made from sorghum, millet, buckwheat, brown rice, and “deglutenised” barley malt. They are not grain-free and have low quantities of grain proteins. So, tread carefully here, and make judgments based on your individual experience. The carbohydrate content of these beers is slightly less than most others, ranging from 10 to 14 g per 330-ml bottle.

In addition to these choices, I have seen some microbreweries starting to jump on the gluten-free bandwagon.

Look for beers brewed from chicory and other ingredients.Tweet this!

Enjoy and may the best team win!

Yours in grainless health,

WBB: Don’t Let Grains Ruin Your Skin

Don’t Let Grains Ruin Your Skin

Grains can play havoc with your skin. The prolamin proteins, such as gliadin, trigger autoimmune skin reactions and turn antibodies against the skin, their lectins fan the fires of inflammation, their proteins provoke allergies, and amylopectins send blood sugar and insulin sky-high and provoke the skin-disrupting hormone insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF). The whole grain inflammation package adds up to an impressive collection of skin conditions that can take a variety of forms, from simple red, itchy rashes to scaly, oily raised patches to large vesicles to gangrene. Because hair and nails are also considered part of the integumentary system, they, too, can be involved.

  1. ACNE
    Acne is a nearly universal problem in modern teenagers and adults. It is believed that acne is provoked by foods that trigger insulin and the hormone IGF. All grains raise blood sugar, and thereby insulin and IGF, to high levels, so they all share the capacity to create facial havoc. Sugary foods, such as soft drinks and candy also trigger insulin and IGF and can therefore share the blame as can the whey protein of dairy products that is unique among dairy components in its capacity to trigger insulin and a face afflicted with acne

    Repetitive high blood sugars lead to repetitive high insulin and IGF, which causes progressive resistance to insulin, leading to higher levels of insulin and IGF.

    This cycle promotes acne. Tweet this!

    This common red rash typically occurs along the sides of the nose and on the eyebrows, chest, back, and scalp (where it is called dandruff). The Malassezia fungus causes this rash. Interestingly, the same fungus populates the skin of most humans, even if they don’t have seborrhea. The relationship between grains and seborrhea is exceptionally consistent and predictable. Seborrhea is very common in grain consumers. It is also uncommon for seborrhea t
