Why are gluten and casein a concern? Because some individuals experience digestive discomfort when they eat foods with these proteins--even when they try to avoid obvious sources:
For some, hidden gluten and casein can be the cause of occasional gas, bloating, and indigestion. However, the right digestive enzymes can make a difference when trying to support a gluten free and casein free lifestyle.
Why Take Gluten Gluten Defense™?
Gluten Defense™† is specifically formulated to defend against hidden gluten:
Gluten and casein are found where you'd never expect them--salad dressings, cold cuts--even toothpaste! Gluten Defense™† features DPP IV (dipeptidyl peptidase) activity, from a protease enzyme specific to digestion of gluten and casein.
Gluten Defense™† also includes a complete range of digestive enzymes:
Competing products only tackle gluten--Gluten Defense™ helps you digest other proteins, fats and carbohydrates as well.
Warnings: While Gluten Defense™ will reduce the level of reactive gliadin and gluten proteins in a meal, it is advised theat celiac disease sufferers continue with their normal gluten exclusion diet as even small amounts of gliadin can cause adverse reactions in the most sensitized individuals. If pregnant, nursing, or taking prescription drugs, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.
Recommended Use: Two UltraCaps with each meal or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

I find when I take Gluen Defense for a few weeks, I have to start taking pepcid A/C because of the stomach acid buildup. Then I stop taking Gluten Defense and after a few weeks my acid level returns to normal so I don't have to take any antacids. I do have digestion problems so I was hoping that digestive enzymes would help. Not sure what to make of this.
Length of Use: more than 1 week but less than 1 month. Benefits: Still Waiting.
