The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life (CCC 1324)." For this reason, it is important that parishes make participating in the celebration of the Eucharist as easy as possible for people with gluten or alcohol intolerance. When a person receives communion and grows in holiness, they are not only benefitting themselves, they are benefitting the Church as a whole.
