Gluten Cutter: Digestive Aid?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i posted this in another area on the forum, but thought i'd add it here as well:

 

 

has anyone seen the Gluten Cutter digestive formula advertised yet?  I just saw a coupon for it on coupons.com however I will not be printing it...at least not anytime soon   :blink:

 

here's the site's intro:


"For most of people, the thought of eliminating gluten-containing foods from our diets seems unreasonable. Yet a growing number of people are realizing they are affected by the gluten in their favorite foods. 

Gluten Cutter™ is an effective digestive aid that helps to digest wheat, dairy and other grains.* Only Gluten Cutter™ is formulated with GCX50, an advanced proprietary blend of enzymes that specifically target and break down gluten to properly digest gluten-containing food.* Gluten Cutter™ can provide individuals with the freedom to enjoy the foods they love without having to deprive themselves or worry about the effects of gluten.* It may also be used by those looking to remain on a gluten-free diet. Simply take Gluten Cutter right before you begin eating gluten-containing food."

 

 

i like this in the FAQ section:

 

Q: Is Gluten Cutter intended for those with Celiac Disease?

A: It is recommended that those with Celiac Disease first consult with a doctor prior to using Gluten Cutter.

anyone have any ideas about this product?  i'm definitely severely skeptical   :)

This doesn't look like the medicines/vaccines that are being developed by Celiac researchers.  This looks like one of those "internet Cures".

 

 

Just saw this on the bottom, in small print:

 

"The statements and products shown on this website have not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."

I just answered you on that thread!  (you're killin' me, kiddo...this qualifies for double duty pay) :lol:  

 

As well you should be skeptical.  <_< It's not a magic pill. 

 

Digestive enzymes are just that...enzymes.

They do not cure celiac..

They do not "wipe out" the gluten.

They will not protect you from damage and they will not protect you from feeling like crap.

 

Some people say they can take these special enzymes after an accidental glutening and their symptoms are lessened.

I tried some made by Enzymedica, but I do not know if they did a thing for me. I still felt like dog poo and had symptoms

for a few days. but I was on vacation and I rebounded rather quickly. It was probably because I am 2.5 years after DX but more likely because I was warm, happy and on a beach.  :D

I tried gluten cutter last night after I'd been accidentally glutened from catered food at an event. It helped alot.  I had terrible abdominal cramps, and because the catered food was from a franchise I was able to look up the ingredients online, and yep, there was a small amount of flour in one of the dishes I ate... one that the caterer had assured me was gluten free. Within ten minutes of taking Gluten Cutter the cramps went away entirely. Nor did I get any of my other usual symptoms--exhaustion followed later by insomnia, diarrhea, sever hunger. Keep in mind that I took the Gluten Cutter within 15 minutes of consuming the gluten... it probably wouldn't work if taken an hour or two after glutening.

 

Obviously this doesn't mean that a person with celiac disease should be gobbling down gluten and then trying to counteract it with Gluten Cutter. (Remember, the amount of gluten I'd consumed was only a VERY small amount). However, based on my own experiences, if, in the future, I suspect I've been accidentally glutened, or if I'm going to eat where I know there's a good chance that trace amounts of gluten might be in supposedly gluten-free food, I will certainly take a dose of Gluten Cutter with the meal. It's more like an ADDITIONAL prophylactic to assist all one's other efforts to completely avoid gluten (while still leading a normal life!).

There's no medical/ scientific evidence that it works. But, if you think it made you feel better, great!

ich kann immer noch nicht glauben, dass ist real. In translation, I can not believe that's real. Something about that stuff makes me highly dubious and nervous. I'd personally not try it, but if it works hooray if it helps with accidents. Even the times I did get hit, I was like nah, and was a good girl and had my kombucha probiotic drinks by GTs. I've known a few folks who got messed up by diet drugs etc so called cures to trust.

Do supplements like GlutenEase (or Gluten Cutter, Digest Gluten Plus, Glutenase) offer protection against accidentally eating gluten?

We put no validity in these supplements. In fact, they may offer a false sense of protection when they provide no protection at all.

    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
    • Diagnosed at 57
    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
