Here's something I've noticed (and I think it's related to being gluten-free, but I'm not 100%)--I have almost ZERO PMS now. It used to be that I would get very moody and fatigued, but my last two cycles have been...well, miraculous. And EASY.
Weird, but very cool.

I am definitely a more patient person when I am gluten free. No more wild mood swings. (Menopause probably contributes to that too.)
Heal the gut, heal the brain. Gluten can be like alcohol with its opioid effects.

If you wanted to look at research studies, search around www.pubmed.gov
The UK's Dr. Hadjivassiliou is a notable researcher in this area, so you may be interested in his work (some referenced in the first search above); he's often cited by other doctors and studies.

After introducing myself to the team and thinking about all the benefits I've experienced by eating gluten-free, another thing came to mind. Before eating gluten-free, I tended to be fairly depressed and anxious. These days, although I am still a worrier, I definitely am not depressed and do not have the same level of anxiety. Do you suppose this has to do with living gluten free?
