Enzyme Supplementation for Gluten Intolerance
Statistics indicate that as much as 15% of the world’s population experiences digestive intolerance to gluten proteins. Gluten is the main protein complex of wheat. In many cases, the body cannot break down these proteins. Undigested or partially digested proteins can affect a wide range of human cell function, which may result in uncomfortable reactions to foods containing gluten. Although primarily found in grains including wheat, barley spelt and rye, gluten may also be present in medication, cosmetics and foods which have been cross-contaminated with gluten.
In this interview, Dave Barton discusses the range of gluten digestive challenges and how consumers with this issue can improve their digestion of gluten. He discusses the importance of gluten avoidance and the benefits of digestive enzyme support for those who face these challenges. Gluten intolerance is just one of the many digestive issues that can be helped by digestive enzymes. Specifically, we discuss GlutenEase 2X, the enzyme formula that provides double the digesting power of foods containing gluten.
