Gluten-zyme By Country Life

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found information, other than from the manufacturer Country Life, on the product Gluten-Zyme? It is sold in health food stores and other dealers in gluten free products and claims to work like the enzymes one takes so they can eat dairy foods for the lactose intolerant. Supposedly one can take Gluten-Zyme when you are gluten intolerant and then be able to ingest gluten without side effects.

I have searched periodical indexes, the internet, some celiac websites, etc. but cannot find the product discussed. All I have found are places that sell it...

There are many such products on the market today, but none have been scientifically proven to make eating gluten safe for those with celiac disease, and they may be quite harmful. I suspect that the manufacturers don't claim that these are a cure for celiac disease--and that many such companies will be involved in lawsuits by celiacs who get harmed by celiacs who take them believing that they actually do make it safe for them to eat gluten.

Take care,

Scott

I found these pills at a Jimbo's and took them when I thought I'd had accidental exposures while working in a bakery (just drinking from my coffee cup made me feel ill). While I didn't seem to have a lot of symptoms while taking the pills (up to 4 a day), my gut felt tight and I was once again extremely constipated. I lost my usual flat stomach and looked a little pregnant. Several days and nights I suffered bad gas and had an over all feeling of 'icky' but taking the pills seemed (psycho?) to make the exposures less devastating than usual.

Once I got home and into my usual gluten free environment, my gut relaxed, I had my "OHGosh, I've been exposed to gluten" bowel movement, and now I'm getting back to normal.

I'd have to say that the pills probably alleviated some of my symptoms but I was still exposed to gluten in small amounts and my body did suffer. The good news is; no additional rash from the exposures. I've been battling a rash for 4 months from several accidental exposures due to cross contamination.

I thought these pills were too good to be real but figured that since I was stuck in a bakery, surrounded by flour, for 14 hours a day, I'd give them a try.

ALSO even with my reading glasses on I was not able to read the fine print on the bottle. I'm not sure if it says 'not for celiacs' on it because the type is so fine.
