Gluten Cutter: Digestive Aid?
0

11 posts in this topic

i posted this in another area on the forum, but thought i'd add it here as well:

 

 

has anyone seen the Gluten Cutter digestive formula advertised yet?  I just saw a coupon for it on coupons.com however I will not be printing it...at least not anytime soon   :blink:

 

here's the site's intro:


"For most of people, the thought of eliminating gluten-containing foods from our diets seems unreasonable. Yet a growing number of people are realizing they are affected by the gluten in their favorite foods. 

Gluten Cutter™ is an effective digestive aid that helps to digest wheat, dairy and other grains.* Only Gluten Cutter™ is formulated with GCX50, an advanced proprietary blend of enzymes that specifically target and break down gluten to properly digest gluten-containing food.* Gluten Cutter™ can provide individuals with the freedom to enjoy the foods they love without having to deprive themselves or worry about the effects of gluten.* It may also be used by those looking to remain on a gluten-free diet. Simply take Gluten Cutter right before you begin eating gluten-containing food."

 

 

i like this in the FAQ section:

 

Q: Is Gluten Cutter intended for those with Celiac Disease?

A: It is recommended that those with Celiac Disease first consult with a doctor prior to using Gluten Cutter.

 

 

http://glutencutter.com/

 

 

anyone have any ideas about this product?  i'm definitely severely skeptical   :)

This doesn't look like the medicines/vaccines that are being developed by Celiac researchers.  This looks like one of those "internet Cures".

 

 

Just saw this on the bottom, in small print:

 

"The statements and products shown on this website have not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."

I just answered you on that thread!  (you're killin' me, kiddo...this qualifies for double duty pay) :lol:  

 

As well you should be skeptical.  <_< It's not a magic pill. 

 

Digestive enzymes are just that...enzymes.

They do not cure celiac..

They do not "wipe out" the gluten.

They will not protect you from damage and they will not protect you from feeling like crap.

 

Some people say they can take these special enzymes after an accidental glutening and their symptoms are lessened.

I tried some made by Enzymedica, but I do not know if they did a thing for me. I still felt like dog poo and had symptoms

for a few days. but I was on vacation and I rebounded rather quickly. It was probably because I am 2.5 years after DX but more likely because I was warm, happy and on a beach.  :D

I tried gluten cutter last night after I'd been accidentally glutened from catered food at an event. It helped alot.  I had terrible abdominal cramps, and because the catered food was from a franchise I was able to look up the ingredients online, and yep, there was a small amount of flour in one of the dishes I ate... one that the caterer had assured me was gluten free. Within ten minutes of taking Gluten Cutter the cramps went away entirely. Nor did I get any of my other usual symptoms--exhaustion followed later by insomnia, diarrhea, sever hunger. Keep in mind that I took the Gluten Cutter within 15 minutes of consuming the gluten... it probably wouldn't work if taken an hour or two after glutening.

 

Obviously this doesn't mean that a person with celiac disease should be gobbling down gluten and then trying to counteract it with Gluten Cutter. (Remember, the amount of gluten I'd consumed was only a VERY small amount). However, based on my own experiences, if, in the future, I suspect I've been accidentally glutened, or if I'm going to eat where I know there's a good chance that trace amounts of gluten might be in supposedly gluten-free food, I will certainly take a dose of Gluten Cutter with the meal. It's more like an ADDITIONAL prophylactic to assist all one's other efforts to completely avoid gluten (while still leading a normal life!).

There's no medical/ scientific evidence that it works. But, if you think it made you feel better, great!

ich kann immer noch nicht glauben, dass ist real. In translation, I can not believe that's real. Something about that stuff makes me highly dubious and nervous. I'd personally not try it, but if it works hooray if it helps with accidents. Even the times I did get hit, I was like nah, and was a good girl and had my kombucha probiotic drinks by GTs. I've known a few folks who got messed up by diet drugs etc so called cures to trust.

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/do-supplements-like-glutenease-offer-protection-against-accidentally-eating-gluten

 

Do supplements like GlutenEase (or Gluten Cutter, Digest Gluten Plus, Glutenase) offer protection against accidentally eating gluten?

We put no validity in these supplements. In fact, they may offer a false sense of protection when they provide no protection at all.
