Milk Lifting My Mood And Giving Energy...why?
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

this may sound strange but I've recently made the discovery that milk enhances my mood and provides me with energy almost instantly after I've drank it.

This has been happening now for a short while now. When I was accidentally got glutened last week the milk didn't really take any effect, but now that it's been a few days, whatever is in the milk is giving me that lift again. This led me to believe that it could have been a B12 deficiency that I may have been suffering from so I bought some sublingual pills. They arrived today. I did some research and learnt that the methylcobalamin is the best form to take so I got those. I took a pill today and felt nothing. I did read that it could take months to see any chance but this doesn't explain what happened below.

I just drank milk again and got that energy boost, mood lift and a general feeling of good well being.

This may not be the right forum but I am writing this here, anyway, since celiac sufferers may have knowledge of vitamins, etc.

Does anyone know what vitamin could be responsible?

My BIL runs marathons. The recommended drink after exercise is chocolate milk. I know even non-fat milk &/ or chocolate have a good effect on my oldest boy. He plans to stock his dorm fridge with choco milk & Mt dew. If you can digest it, it sounds like a pretty safe upper. :)

That's great Sky! I'm going to tell him he doesn't need drugs. choco milk is his drug.

Edited: just talked to my 18 year old. He said "That sounds about right." in regards to Speedy's mood lift & energy boost. So there are 2 of you.

It could be the casein protein also. The American military once experimented with using casein as a fatigue fighter for soldiers. I have reactions to dairy products myself. I once stayed awake for 3 days straight after eating cheese and wasn't even tired. Started sleeping a after that 4 hours and then 6 hours the next day etc. Now that I have been off gluten longer and have a more healed gut, I don't react to it like that. But I still don't eat it for other reasons.

Well, I did lots of research about all this in the past few days and narrowed it down to either a possible B3 or B1 deficiency. Firstly, I tried B3 foods, such as chicken and felt no change.

Today, I tried B1 and felt the same effect that I got from milk ie more energy, much less anxiety (I experienced this a lot!) my mood is much more happy and I feel motivated to do many more things.

I read that Celiac can cause deficiency of many different B vitamins including B1. I believe I may have found my answer but I don't want to say too much in case I'm wrong.

Right now, I'm just enjoying the effects of thinking that I have finally found the right vitamin to replenish.

I take a vitamin B-Complex pill. It includes all B vitamins. They seem to give me a lot of energy. In fact I have to be careful not to take them to late into the afternoon because then I'm up all night with energy to burn :)

Maybe it's a mild effect from the opioid peptides in milk. Some people are more sensitive to it than others.

My son is really enjoying this! He drank some milk & started jumping around.- all 6'1 175 lbs. "I'm having opiod peptides!"

Have you ever bought a bottle of Organic, low fat chocolate milk and added protein powder to it? I don't care what time of the day or night... it propels my mood exponentially.

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
