Enzyme To Help With Gluten, Casein, Soy, And Corn Digestion

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a friend with an Autistic child and they say these enzyme tablets allow her to eat gluten and casein. Have any of you guys tried them or know anything about them? I do not have Celiac just intolerance. I'm wondering if I could take these enzymes and be able to eat gluten? I get bloating, constipations and stomach cramps......don't know if I have any intestinal damage. I'm gluten free now for about a month and a half. Feeling better...but it's a pain in the you know what. Maybe these might help for an occasional treat of gluten???? What do you guys know about this????

I take digestive enzymes, but they don't allow me to eat gluten. I was having stomach aches from gluten-free food, and when I take the enzymes my stomach doesn't hurt. You can also take them on an empty stomach and they work like metabolic enzymes and help with inflammation.

I have done a lot of research on digestive enzymes and if that is the type of enzyme that you are referring to, I've never heard that it can help you eat gluten.

Are you talking about Glutenzyme? It artificially digests the gluten in foods. It is NOT recommended for use by celiacs because it is impossible for all the gluten to be artificially digested before causing damage to your intestines. I'm not a doctor, of course, but I would highly recommend that you don't try this pill if you have Celiac disease. However, if you just have a gluten intolerance AND it does no physical damage to your body, I would think that you could probably go ahead and give it a try. Again, I'm not a doctor, this is strictly just my opinion.

:rolleyes: Ok. let's think about this. I'm not a doctor so I can't tell you what you should or not do. However, you say you are feeling better. I know that the longer I am on this diet the more I love it. At 62 I feel better than I have a right to. So if you feel better, why do you want to make yourself sick again? Remember we have one of the healthiest diets in the world. However, it does take getting used to. Also, it sounds like you need a little support along the way. Stick with Celiac.com. The folks are lovely and more than willing to share their experience and recipes. So if you must, try it. Still, please remember that you feel better now. W/O gluten

I'm talking about Peptizyde™ from Houston Nutraceuticals.

Here's the web site: http://216.114.78.114/webcenter/sites/HNI/...3438&N=Products

or go to www.houstoni.biz

Here's what they say on there web site:

Peptizyde™ (pronounced "Pep-ta-zyde") is a combination of three different proteolytic enzymes isolated from plant sources. Each enzyme has a unique set of peptide bonds it prefers to break, so the combination of these enzymes allows much more efficient means of quickly and thoroughly breaking down (hydrolyzing) proteins to its smaller components. The enzymes in Peptizyde™ work only on food proteins, not carbohydrates, fats, or other compounds, and do not interfere with medications or other supplements (unless they are also proteins, which is extremely unlikely). Peptizyde may be used in combination with other enzyme products.

The ability of Peptizyde™ enzymes to withstand the low pH of the stomach and remain active under acidic conditions allows hydrolysis of casein and gluten prior to entrance into the small intestine. Casein and gluten, in the presence of pancreatic enzymes in the duodenum, can break down into exorphin peptides that may be readily absorbed from the intestine (these peptides are not absorbed from the stomach). Peptizyde™ supplements the "normal" hydrolysis of casein, gluten, and other food proteins such that the exorphin peptides are not produced because the specific cleavage pattern to produce these peptides is altered.

This product will NOT allow celiac patients to go off a gluten-free diet.

Each capsule of Peptizyde™ contains:

Peptidase (source of DPP IV)......62,500 HUT

Protease..........................25,000 HUT

Papain (sulfite-free)........2,000,000 FCCPU

Rice Bran (gluten-free)...........appx 35 mg (IN ORIGINAL FORMULA)

Cellulose and MCT Oil (IN SCD VERSIONS)

I tested negative on the blood test for Celiac Disease....but positive (although not that high 12 with less than 12 being normal) on the stool test for senstivity for gluten. I haven't had a biopsy do I don't know if I have damage to my intestine or not. Would this be just for autistic children so that gluten and casein doesn't effect their behavior? Maybe it doesn stop intestinal damage if you are intolerant to it?

What do you guys think about this??
