Gluten Cutter: Digestive Aid?
0

11 posts in this topic

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.

 

 

http://glutencutter.com/

 

 

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.

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/do-supplements-like-glutenease-offer-protection-against-accidentally-eating-gluten

 

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.

    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
    • Hi, this has been a postcode lottery for some time, some health authorities support it others don't. The govt has recently indicated that doctors should no longer prescribe food to celiacs, you should check with your local GP to see if they are still doing this or not. if you want some advice on where to shop just ask
