Digest Gold W/ Probiotics Enzymes

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I am new to celiac (being diagnosed anyways) and I have been using Enzymedica Digest Gold w/ Probiotics for awhile now. I feel like it helps me a lot; I seem to react less to various foods as I have in the past. I have lots of food intolerances besides gluten that I'm still trying to figure out. I make sure I avoid gluten of course, but I've been exploring w/ other foods that I wasn't able to tolerate 2 years ago (dairy, corn, vinegar, sugar, yeast, possibly nightshades), and my reactions haven't really been much of anything. I read in a few posts that these enzymes (even though they say gluten free) contain gluten! Now, I'm not sure what I should do, because I feel like they have been helping me. ?? I just recently ordered a bottle of 180 tablets, so I don't want to waste it unless they are truly bad for me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Tracey

I use digest gold and its gluten-free. I haven't used it with prpbiotics but if you're in doubt call the manufacturer.

I agree with PricklyPear. You need to contact the manufacturer. The website says there are no fillers in their capsules but there is no clear allergy or gluten information anywhere on that website that I can find.

We have "twitchy" digestive systems around here. :lol: A lot of people assume all of their reactions are gluten-related so you have to be careful when you read hearsay on the board. In this case, it's not uncommon to have a bad reaction to a strong probiotic if you've never taken them before.

Look for a letter from a manufacturer, that the board member spoke to the company, or for a post with a link to the company's site that verifies gluten status. If the post isn't recent (you have to decide for yourself what is satisfactory) then assume you need to contact the company again. If you share what you find, it helps the next person who searches.
