Peptizyde Or Glutenease?
0

4 posts in this topic

In a couple of other threads, Rachel--24 has mentioned that a product called Peptizyde has helped her a lot. She specifically mentioned one ingredient called DPPIV.

I have a bottle of GlutenEase, which I take as needed. I believe it does make me feel better if cc has been an issue, or even if something is bothering me but I don't know what.

Here are the ingredients per 1 capsule serving:

DPP-IV: 95,000 HUT

Amylase: 15,000 DU

Glucoamylase: 15 AGU

Other Ingredients: 100% Vegetarian Capsule (cellulose, water)

Contains NO dairy, preservatives, salt, sucrose, soy, wheat, yeast, corn, nuts, gluten, artificial colors or flavors.

Sorry - I have no idea what those abbreviations mean.

So I guess my question is, is GlutenEase a similar product to Peptizyde? If so, why does it get bad-mouthed?

Rachel--24, I really would appreciate your input on this one. You have become (unfortunately out of necessity) so knowledgeable on this stuff!

If you have Celiac Disease it would probably be better for you to stick with the GlutenEase.

Here is some info. about the various enzymes out there...

GlutenEase (Enzymedica) - very effective product targeting both protein and carbohydrate portions of gluten and casein. Effective enough to replace Gluten-free Casein-free diet for many people. Not intended for celiacs to leave gluten-free diet, but acts as 'safety net' for accidental exposures. Lessens symptoms for many with celiac. Does not cause adverse reactions some other gluten-targeting enzyme products do in celiac.

Peptizyde (Houston Nutraceuticals) - found to be effective enough for replacing Gluten-free Casein-free diet for many people. Not advised for celiacs even as 'safety net' because some celiacs report worsening of symptoms with accidental exposure.

AFP Peptizyde (Houston Nutraceuticals)

I'm not sure why it gets bad mouthed? :unsure:

I'm assuming its because when enzymes are mentioned people make the assumption that the goal is to leave the gluten-free diet....which is not always the case. Enzymes can help with cc and they can aid in the digestion of other foods.

Obviously a person with Celiac should not try to replace the diet with any kind of enzyme. For those of us who are not Celiac the enzymes are providing the body with what it is lacking....this can make a huge difference for those with non-celiac gluten intolerance.

When the DPPIV enzyme is inactivated or blocked we lose the ability to digest gluten and casein. An enzyme high in DPPIV can make up for that.

Since most of my underlying issues are the same ones found in autistic kids I've found that alot of what works for them (as far as treatment goes) has also worked for me. Thats why I was excited about Peptizyde. I got some feedback from one of my Dr.'s who primarily treats kids with autism...she told me that she was getting good results with Peptizyde, Zyme Prime and No Fenol. Zyme Prime didnt work for me (I reacted to it) but the other two I've done really well with. :)

Thank you! I knew you would have the answer! :)

I have not been diagnosed as celiac, but I have a blood relative with a confirmed diagnosis, and I do not tolerate gluten well at all. Therefore I probably am and it sounds like I should stick with the GlutenEase.

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
