  1. Got it. I thank you everyone for replying, sorry if I asked something someway "irritating" for people with celiac disease, just wanted to understand if that was an actual way to help my mother in law or not. Are these products, in your opinion, at least helpful in case of trace of gluten in a gluten free diet? The link (http://www.enzymus.com/celiac-and-gluten-intolerance/syntol/) indicates at the bottom of the page several studies supporting the fact, I quote, that these enzymes "are able to accelerate the degradation of gluten in the digestive system, thereby increasing the amount of gluten that is safe to eat and reducing the burden of a highly restrictive gluten-free diet for patients diagnosed with celiac disease". Again, not to avoid a gluten free diet, just to not have problems in case of a food with trace of gluten (as you all know sometimes, espcially dining out, what's guarantee gluten free isn't actually gluten free sometimes, in fact she doesn't trust 99% what she doesn't know for sure - we're located in Italy). Thank you!
  2. Hi, I appreciate your feedback but I've a question: what about this http://eon.businesswire.com/news/eon/20110518005565/en/Alvine-Pharmaceuticals/Celiac-Disease/Patents published on the home page of the American Celiac Disease Alliance (latest news on the right, http://americanceliac.org/about-us/)? Also here they talk about gluten degradation with gluten-specific proteases (enzyme)... Thank you!!! Bye
  3. Hi, my mother in law has celiac disease form decades, she's over 70 yrs old and I just found these 2 natural products on the net (Devigest and Syntol: http://www.enzymus.com/celiac-and-gluten-intolerance/syntol/) that are described like to be able to control and make possible for celiac people to start eat again foods with gluten. Devigest is a digestive enzyme blend that, I quote from the website abstract, "brokes down into harmless peptide fragments the gliadin and other glutamine and proline-rich proteins" and Syntol is an high quality probiotic supplement that contains several billion CFUs (Colony Forming Units) of eight different non-competing strains of probiotics that inhibit the toxic effects of gliadin on intestinal cells and reduce intestinal permeability, which is a precursor to developing symptoms outside of the intestines. Are these informations true? Should she start taking both of them and then restart eating some foods with gluten? We are located in Italy, could be that our doctors are not yet informed about that... Please let me know, any feedback is truly appreciated. Thank you very much - regards
