Within 10 days of going gluten free I had an epiphany about
my cognitive function - it was greatly improved. I was waiting for a big change in my digestive process but the cognitive improvements came first. At the two week mark I had enough improvement in my bowel function that I could mark the experiment a success, but really, the improved concentration and focus was enough of a reason to stay GF.
So yeah, mood change? Better, happier, more successful at work.
