Gluten Shield – Digestive Enzyme Support for Gluten Cross Contamination
Avoidance of wheat products may not be enough to maintain a gluten-free diet. For example, did you know that gluten is used as a food additive and may be present as a stabilizing agent in salad dressings, ice cream, and even ketchup? Gluten Shield is an enzyme blend with probiotics designed to help maintain optimum digestion of all foods with a special focus on encouraging more complete digestion of complex carbohydrates in grains seeds, legumes, vegetables, and other plant materials. This formula also includes herbs to help reduce the symptoms of occasional food intolerances. For those who are considering a gluten-free diet, Gluten Shield includes both the enzymes that break down the polysaccharides which encase gluten as well as the DPP-IV protease activity necessary to digest gluten proteins. This digestive enzyme supplement is designed to help reduce the symptoms of occasional bloating, diarrhea, gas, and abdominal cramps associated with diets high in complex carbohydrates. Gluten Shield® does not promote the intentional consumption of gluten.
