Product Description

Size: 60

Gluten Digest, with BioCore® DPP IV (Dipeptidyl peptidase IV) is a digestive enzyme that can be supplemented alone or in combination with other nutritional enzymes to support the digestive process. This unique enzyme specifically breaks apart difficult-to-digest proline-containing peptides, which are generally known to come from dairy products and cereal grains. Gluten digest also contains amylase and glucoamylase enzymes that assist in the breakdown of carbohydrates. The proteases in Gluten digest are stable in the acidic environment of the stomach and are 100% vegetarian.*

My doctor recommended dpp-iv enzyme for the occasion when I accidentally ingest gluten. Since it does happen on occasion especially with so many items having wheat. Especially when eating out. She also said it isn't a cure nor does it give me the ability to eat gluten, it merely helps reduce reaction if there is accidental ingestion of gluten. She mentioned I should take it whenever I eat out. Sometimes there is wheat or gluten where you don't expect. Such as mcdonald's french fries have wheat. Not all restaurants have a gluten free selection and they don't always know if something has gluten or believe it is free of it, but it isn't. Then you have where I recently didn't pay attention at IHOP and ordered an omelet. I assumed omelet was safe and wasn't til later when I was trying to figure out why I was having reactions as if I had gluten that I found out that IHOP omelets use pancake batter to make them more fluffy.

So no it isn't a cure by any means but it helps assist on the accidental ingestion. It shouldn't be used as a means to allow you to eat gluten. It should be used to help in the case of accidental ingestion. As another reviewer stated while you may stave off obvious reactions, the gluten can still damage the villi in your intestine and cause harm.

I have celiac disease. I am extremely careful with what I eat, but every holiday I seem to get glutened by a well-intentioned relative. This year I took a pill before eating at our family Christmas, in case the gluten free food was cross-contaminated. I was assured by a relative that orzo was rice and ate a half cup of orzo salad. I had no phone reception to double check...as it turns out, orzo is pasta and definitely not gluten free. After eating it I felt a tiny bit tired but figured I was imagining that symptom. I had absolutely no problems the rest of the day. 24 hours later I had a slightly loose stool, and that's it. Normally I'd be sick within 20 minutes and feeling awful for weeks with lots of digestive and neurological symptoms. I will definitely not be intentionally eating gluten even with this product due to invisible damage I may be causing to myself, but knowing that a few times a year I can take this if I have no other options is a big relief.

I have Celiac disease, and have gotten very sick on several occasions from foods being contaminated with gluten, especially when eating out. This past September, I was eating out with friends, and informed the restaurant and the server of my inability to eat anything containing gluten. I even told them that I couldn't eat normal soy sauce, as it contains wheat (we were eating at an Asian restaurant). They told me that they could accommodate my dietary restriction, and so I trusted them. It wasn't until after I had eaten what they had given me that they told me the dressing for the salad had soy sauce in it. Consequently, I got sick later that night, and was sick for over a week :-(. Therefore, I vowed to do something to help prevent this situation from every occurring again.

Having heard about gluten digestive enzymes before, I decided to try them. My area of expertise is biochemistry and molecular biology, so I know all about proteases, and that they should be able to help, provided that they do as directed. After all, what could it hurt? I'd rather try them in the off chance they work than suffer that 1-2 weeks worth of pain, fatigue, and illness again.

Anyway, these little pills have been my savior! I'll take 2 capsule before sitting down to a meal out (anything that I didn't prepare directly really), and haven't had a nasty re-occurrence since then. I'm often skeptical of restaurants, even when they say that something is gluten free, as it's often difficult for them to prevent cross contamination. Recently, I'm pretty sure that I had ingested gluten while eating out (I did take 2 capsules before my meal), as the server gave me soft tacos instead of hard tacos. She insisted that they were gluten free, but I should have known better.

I was having terrible pain in my hands.It was so great that I couldn't turn door knobs or even rub lotion on my hands! After going to the naturopathe it was found that I had a sensitivity to the protein in gluten which causes inflammation, pain & swelling. There was a buildup in my body since it wasn't breaking it down and eliminating it from my body. I have been taking 2 with each meal for 3 months but within a month I was able to do basic things like write a check, without pain.

My wife starting taking these at Thanksgiving. We haven't gone out of our way to have items with gluten, but when we think she might have foods with either trace amounts or cross contamination, she takes a pill. Went through Thanksgiving and the whole Christmas season without any episodes. The best report I can give is that she used to get a certain drink from Starbucks that was gluten free. Then she had a violent reaction after having it one time and apparently they changed the ingredients. She had it again with a pill a couple weeks ago and had no reaction.

** UPDATE 4/10/13 **
Neither my review or the 5 star rating has changed. I thought it might be helpful to leave some GF bread crumbs along the way. My wife still hasn't had any episodes with gluten. Again, we make a point to try to avoid gluten for her so "maybe" we just haven't come across any. But we still go out to eat (fast food and nicer restaurants). 1-2 pills before eating, whether it's doing anything or not, is easily worth the $11 every couple months to be able to say we've had no gluten-induced fun for months. Now we just keep some in both cars as an emergency supply. Consider it cheap insurance.
