IM JUST GETTING INTO THIS AFTER 5 YEARS OF celiac --
been a roller coaster of misery until finally i saw a naturapath doc who said to try these different enzymes and much more supplements than I had been taking -- WOW what a difference. they are for energy and for keeping the body in balance.
Just like my plants tat need different micro nutrients - so do we. Learned alot in the past few months and would urge anyone to at least explore this road.

Hi Diva~

Enzymes don't help with gluten but they do help with inflammation. There are enzymes called proteolitic enzymes that are a group of enzymes that can greatly reduce inflammation in the body. The issues with gluten intolerance, including Celiacs, are malabsoption and inflammation caused by an over-active immune sytem. Enzymes help both.

I think everyone should be on enzymes.

To fight inflammation you need to take enzymes on an empty stomach. This way they don't get used to digest food and, instead, can be used by the body to fight inflammation. Enzymes are totally non-toxic and are only contraindicated if a person is taking blood thinners as enzymes can thin the blood.

A brand I like because it is high quality and cheaper than others of similar quality is the line by Dr. Michael Murray. Can't remember the brand name but you can google him and find it.

Hope this helps.
