    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I was wondering if anyone has tried a product called Gluten Ease.

I know it sounds too good to be true, but I saw it in my health food store and didnt know if it was worth trying. I am usually okay restricting my diet, but there are some foods that I really miss at times!!!

Thanks for any input.

You can not use this is you have celiac!

Just to avoid any confusion, the product itself is gluten-free. Should you use it? Not in the way the original poster was inquiring. What it might help with are accidental glutenings.

I have been taking these for the past month or so, anytime I'm going out to eat at a restaurant, or at some function where there could potentially be cross-contamination. I do feel that it helped at least in one particular case-my "glutening" episodes usually last for hours, and my last one passed within 1/2-1 hour.

However, the other day, I had some kind of episode (glutening? stomach virus? who knows!) and the Gluten Ease did not help one bit. Of course, like I said, I'm not sure it was a glutening.

There's no way to know for sure if it helps minimize internal damage from the glutening. You could do periodic lab tests while taking Gluten Ease regularly I suppose, but so many other factors could be involved.

FWIW, I don't feel that the company itself is necessarily trying to sell Gluten Ease as a "cure-all" for Celiacs. I have found some 3rd party retailers that seem to be slanting it towards that angle though, unfortunately.

Also, I believe there is another Gluten Ease discussion thread out there where a gentleman actually "tested" the product by taking a couple of capsules and then eating a sandwich with "regular" gluten containing bread. The results weren't so great. :(

so are these something you take every day or after you feel you have been glutened??

I only take it when I go out to eat. For example, before the server brings my food I take 2 capsules ( I am extremely sensitive so I take 2). Only take it if you are eating gluten or if you think you might be glutened on accident.
