I have personally tried these over the counter pills after ACCIDENTALLY injesting gluten and these pills RELIEVED MY GLUTEN SYMPTOMS!!! I am in NO WAY AFFILIATED with any sponsor or product involved. I just want to pass this information on because it worked for me. (And they're cheap, too!) Be sure and read the reviews. I cannot believe more people don't know about this. (I checked out all the medical links in the reviews, too!) If they work for you, please pass it on. Here is where I got mine:

I hope this helps you, too.

IF they can really help digest gluten, that does not make gluten safe for a person with Celiac to eat.  "Digested" gluten is still gluten.  The gluten is still in the small intestine and will cause the antibody response of Celiac Disease. It won't be destroyed before it gets to the small intestine.

Correct me if I'm wrong...but the problem with gluten for a celiac isn't that they can't digest it.......so why would enzymes work at all? Gluten is still gluten, even when our guts are healed and are digesting foods nicely, gluten will still cause the immune reaction......

I see you changed this. The original didn't mention " accidentally".

What reliable literature do you have that these " digest " gluten? More importantly to Celiacs - where is the medical info that says that " digesting " gluten is our issue? Or that digesting gluten will stop the antibodies from being formed? Gluten is digested in the small intestine. It has to sit there to be digested. Even if this product could break the gluten into small enough bits that the immune system wouldn't recognize it as gluten - it would take some time. While that gluten is sitting there....antibodies are being made.

This product is full of proteases, so it looks like the aim of it is to break the gluten protein down into tiny pieces, presumably too small for the immune system to recognize as gluten.  Depending on when you take it and how long it takes for these enzymes to work, and whether they work at stomach acid pH at all, it could help somewhat, but considering that the size of the protein fragments that the immune system recognizes are pretty small, I'd be surprised if it was completely effective.  It would have to break the gluten proteins down into individual amino acids before they leave the stomach to be completely effective, and I'm skeptical that that is possible.  Still, if it reduces the amount of gluten antigens available, it could reduce symptoms.  I'll still keep as religiously away from gluten as I can rather than relying on this.
