Digestive Enzymes/juice Plus

9 posts in this topic

I just wondered if anyone uses Juice Plus or digestive enzymes for celiac? My son and I were taking juice plus awhile but did not feel better. In fact we both tested positive on IGG blood tests and are doing enterolab tests now. My daughter tested negative and I was positive only on IGg also. But I just wondered about digestive enzymes. I read there is something called peptizide and also juice plus had enzymes. Is there any way they can worsen celiac? I kind of wonder because I feel like he and I both felt worse while we were on it. I am not positive of that though because I am still tired and trying to figure this all out. <_<

I use digestive enzymes - Tropical Papaya by Country Life after I eat and Wholezyme by Whole Foods 2x's a day. I have tried using Garden of Life's Primal Defense (probiotics) but it is still too soon for me. The enzymes have been great!

I took enzymes for about a week, but they made me very nauseaous...I felt worse than before....though the enzymes were gluten-free....I stopped them and haven't tried any since--you might as well try enzymes, though...I think they've helped many. Oh, I took...I think it was: Lipram CR-10....or something like it.

:huh: Because I'm new to this, and I'm also real docile :blink: I need to ask ....

What are enzymes, and what do they do?

I am trying to make sure I only eat gluten-free, but most times, when I've just finished, I still feel like I've swallowed a camel most of the time. :rolleyes:

Would enzymes help this???

My doctor told me to take probiotics. . .I forget the exact explanation (this was over a year and a half ago) but they are bacteria that are supossed to help your intestines and such.

You should talk to your doctor and see if they could help you.

I've been taking digestive enzymes for about 8 months (AbsorbAid). They help a lot with the fullness and bloating feeling after you eat. My main complaints have been upper digestive tract gas. The enzymes, along with the gluten-free diet, have helped.

I have been using Juice Plus for about 6 months now and I find that it really works. I am getting ready to order the Juice PLus Complete which is the meal replacement shake. I have emailed the company asking if their products are gluten free and they say all of their products are gluten free, which is great. Hope this helps.

Hi Christyg90,

I get AbsorbAid from my local health food store. I have also found it at Wild Oats, which is a health food grocery store we have in Miami. You should also be able to find it on the internet.

I hope you have good luck with the enzymes, they've definately helped me.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
