    My naturopath has recommended GiiSODin, a product that laces the SOD with gliadin so that the SOD is not neutralized by stomach acid. She insists the amount of gliadin is below levels that cause reaction. I contacted the manufacturer and received the below response. I’m so new to all of this and would like your take on whether this product is safe.

     

    “Each GliSODin capsules contains 8.3 mg of gliadin and gliadin makes up about 20% of the gluten protein composition.  The coeliac threshold is 50mg gluten daily (see attached).  This means that 1 capsule daily is under the threshold but 2 exceeds it.  For those with gluten intolerance which is not coeliac disease, GliSODin has a direct anti-inflammatory effect on the intestinal wall and usually find that the condition subsides with treatment.  Patients can start with 1 capsule daily and increase to two as tolerance improves.”

    Mary,

    This is bad advice.  With all of the options for antioxidant and anti inflammatory supplements on the market, you should not take one with known gluten/gliadin.

    You can contact my office and ask for Ultra Antioxidants as an option that is grain free.

    All the best,

    Dr. O
