Enzymes With Foods...what To Use?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I've been gluten free for almost two weeks, and I'm not sure that "feeling better" would cover it. But I'm determined to give this a full trial. I read that you should take digestive enzymes when eating, especially if you have a damaged gut. I've always taken lactaid and beano, and while they used to help, I am still having issues with gas (the SBD, very unpleasant kind). I limit my lactose intake to almost nothing - here and there something crops up, but for the most part, it's a nonissue. And I avoid all wheat products of any kind. Does anyone have any suggestions of digestive enzyme which help to cut down on gas?

Stop the Beano, for sure. It is not gluten-free. Get a good broad enzyme with bromelain, lipase, pancreatic, lactase and gluta something. just make sure it is gluten-free :D

Are there any specific brands of supplement that offer all of those, or do you have to buy each separately?

I take NOW brand Super Enzymes. It has Betaine, Pancreatin, Papain, Cellulase, Ox Bile, Pepsin, Bromelain, and Papaya powder.

It has none of the following: sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish, preservatives.

I don't like all of NOW's vitamins, but these weren't too bad price wise ($10).

If you shop on-line, I'm very satisfied with www.Lame Advertisement.com, lots of choices, user reviews, etc.

Maybe try some DPP-4 also. It might help a little.

I use Solgar vegetarian digestive enzymes. Not that I am vegetarian, but I just like the brand. I also take the Solgar cal mag D pills. Gluten free Mall has Pioneer brand gluten-free vitamins.

Remember it is not just wheat, but also rye and barley that we need to avoid. Also oats affect quite a few of us.

I particularly like BRONSON vitamins and minerals products. They are frequently found in medical school supply stores [where medical and dental students buy their supplies on campus], Whole Foods and like places, besides credible pharmacies. I have been taking their Therapeudic Formula and Super B's for many years. Take a look at their formula called "GLUTEN FREE" and see what you think, it's relatively new and I have just recently ordered it. I plan to take it on those rare occasions when I accidentely get glutened.

I have them mail-ordered to me from this site: BRONSON
