E3 Advanced Plus™ to the Rescue!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

E3 Advanced Plus can help avoid the discomfort associated with the consumption of gluten protein*. E3 breaks down the gluten protein in the digestive system into di, tri, and free-form peptides before it reaches the small intestine. When these pulverized proteins reach the small intestine in this immunologically unrecognizable state, it does not activate an immune system response.*

This product is NOT suitable for celiacs! This is a paid advertisement!  Although it may be gluten free, it can not protect a celiac from unwanted gluten exposures.   Not one of the astricks on the article is linked to a reference.  The actual product states that none of the claims have been evaluated by the FDA (nor needs to because it is a "supplement."  

I am going to forward this to the Gluten Free WatchDog.

There are no medications currently on the market that "digest" gluten.  This just a paid advertisement.  

 

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/do-supplements-like-glutenease-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 "

 

There are some meds in development that may be able to break down gluten in the stomach, before it reaches the small intestine.  But they are not available and have not passed all the tests to become a legitimate medication.  When they are available, it may be a prescription only drug. We have had article on here about these legitimate medications.

If you go to the website - they have the legal statement -

" These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease."

Thank you for posting about this. My Mom sent me a link to this product and I was very wary, and for a good reason. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Makes me frustrated that this advertising is so misleading and could really harm a lot of us! Thanks again!

Although this was a paid ad on our site I would not discount the use of enzymes that break down gluten for your mother, or anyone who seeks to avoid gluten for any reason. The fact is that most celiacs continue to ingest hidden gluten:

and such enzymes may mitigate this, especially for those who continue to eat outside their own kitchen.
