If you have years of gluten induced GI damage, have had your gallbladder removed, or continue to suffer with GI symptoms then keep reading…
Many people who go gluten free continue to complain about digestive and intestinal issues. In my clinical experience some of the most common reasons for this have to do with perpetual hidden gluten exposure, and pre-existing damage to the intestine, liver, gall bladder, and pancreas from years of prior gluten exposure. For these people digestive enzyme support can mean the difference between recovering or not. The reason why – digestive enzymes can facilitate the digestion and absorption process thus allowing the body to start receiving nutrients. The following diagram demonstrates where many going gluten free get stuck:
For many, the original gut damage is gluten induced, but unfortunately, removing gluten doesn’t always lead to full recovery. The damaged gut can have difficulty producing digestive enzymes which in turn leads to digestive and absorption problems. The subsequent nutritional deficiency makes it very difficult for a damaged gut to heal, and the cycle continues.
Two Factors That Will Prevent Gut Recovery…
Two of the greatest risks for those trying to follow the TRUE gluten free diet are hidden gluten and cross contamination. Hidden gluten can be found in many non obvious places. Some of the most common examples include salad dressings, soups, and soy sauce. Cross contamination occurs because your food was prepared near other foods that contain gluten. This happens commonly at restaurants during food preparation where counter surfaces and kitchen utensils are shared.
Keep in mind that gluten exposure occurs very frequently when purchasing packaged or processed foods. Research shows that this problem occurs as frequently as 41% of the time. A similar finding was recently discovered in random supplement products tested for gluten. 24% of products tested were cross contaminated.
That is why I designed Gluten Shield. This high potency blend of enzymes is a dietary supplement designed to help support those with gluten sensitivity. It is used to help reduce the damage from accidental exposure to gluten (cross contamination and hidden gluten). Because Gluten Shield contains a full spectrum of digestive enzymes for carbs, fats, and proteins, it works tremendously well for digestive support and aids the body in maintaining adequate nutritional levels necessary to heal. It should be noted that this product is not designed nor intended to aid in the consumption of gluten!
Gluten Shield works to…
- Reduce the potential damage from cross contamination or hidden gluten
- As an aid to recover after years of gluten induced digestive damage
- To help facilitate the digestion and absorption of vitamins and minerals thus allowing the healing process to begin.
Specialized Ingredients for Gluten Sensitivity
- DPP-IV – A specialized enzyme that breaks down the casing around gluten.
- Special Enzyme Blend – designed for the breakdown of hard to digest carbohydrates found in grains, legumes, seeds, and vegetables
- Special herbal blend – designed to reduce the symptoms of exposure to food intolerances and sensitivities.
- Bifidobacterium infantis – a probiotic replacement because gluten has been shown to damage this species.
