Gluten Relief: Optimal Digestion*

When choosing a digestive enzyme supplement, it is important to know the specific benefits of the product and how it meets your needs. Each of AST Enzymes’ digestive enzyme blends are specially designed to suit a variety of digestion concerns and issues.
Gluten Relief® is specially formulated to assist with the digestion of gluten-rich foods. Products typically characterized by their gluten content, such as, breads and pasta are also carbohydrate heavy. To address this, additional carbohydrate-digesting enzymes are included in Gluten Relief to compliment the powerful DPP-IV activity.

The Problem of Gluten and Casein in Foods
Gluten digestion is challenging for many people. A significant portion of the population suffers from gluten intolerance, and some struggle with more severe conditions.

Celiac disease is a chronic digestive disorder characterized by an extreme sensitivity and allergic reaction to foods containing gluten, requiring individuals with the disease to follow a strict dieting regimen devoid of gluten-containing products. Disorders such as ADD/ADHD and autism have also been linked to improper digestion of gluten and casein. Some say the cognitive and social behaviors associated with these disorders may be influenced by gluten and casein proteins. Gluten is a starch-protein present in most grains and processed foods. Similarly, casein is a protein found in most dairy products which can be difficult to digest, causing discomfort.

Gluten and casein intolerances have been primarily treated through maintaining a Gluten-free and/or casein-free (GFCF) diet. However, trace amounts of these proteins can be found in many foods, making avoidance nearly impossible and allowing problems to persist. Foods with hidden gluten can be a serious problem for unsuspecting and discerning gluten-free dieters.

The underlying issue for people suffering from gluten and casein intolerance is their body’s inherent enzymes do not have the capacity to digest the offending substances. Incomplete digestion of these proteins damages the villi of the intestinal tract, causes inflammation and creates digestive discomfort. The villi of the small intestine are the site of most nutrient absorption and any damage to them can result in mal-absorption and nutrient deficiencies.

Scientists theorize that humans still have not caught up genetically with the introduction of grains to the diet that began nearly 10,000 years ago. Fortunately, advances in biotechnology are striving to bridge that gap.

Gluten Relief for Full-Spectrum Protein Digestion
Gluten Relief® is specially formulated to support the digestion of gluten, casein and other offending proteins hidden in today’s modern foods.

Gluten Relief contains DPP-IV (dipeptidyl peptidase IV), an enzyme complex which specifically breaks down gluten and casein. Our formula includes five additional proteases, each with a specific and unique digesting activity that complements DPP-IV for complete protein degradation. Amylases, lactase and lipase complete Gluten Relief for overall digestive ease.

Undigested proteins can enter the bloodstream through a ‘leaky gut’ or permeable mucus lining of the small intestine. Research indicates that a leaky gut invariably leads to autoimmune issues of many kinds.

Gluten Relief by AST Enzymes is designed with full-protease power to help digest proteins which cause trouble in the gastro-intestinal tract and throughout the body. DPP-IV and Gluten Relief’s five additional proteases help to breakdown gluten and undigested proteins.

Proteins like gluten and casein are large, complex molecules with thousands of amino acid sequences folded and coiled within the molecule, much like a ball of yarn. Without sufficient and specific enzymes to break them down, amino acid bonds within these large proteins can remain inaccessible to enzymes, ultimately resulting in a protein that is only partially degraded.  These smaller peptide strands are still long enough to cause problems with digestion: gas, bloating, occasional loose stools, constipation, fatigue, even severe gastro-intestinal inflammation.
Improper digestion of carbohydrates is often an issue associated with gluten intolerance. Gluten Relief addresses this issue with the inclusion of two types of amylase, as well as glucoamylase and cellulose for complete sugar and carbohydrate digestion.

Avoiding gluten and casein in food and everyday products can be difficult. Even while maintaining a GFCF lifestyle, many products can be hidden sources of these proteins and cause problems. Gluten Relief can be used in conjunction with a GFCF diet to alleviate the stress caused by hidden gluten and casein, allowing these proteins to be properly broken down and absorbed in their digested state.

Sources of Hidden Gluten You May Not Have Known
Blue cheese, bouillon cubes, caramel color or flavoring, commercial chocolate milk and drinks, curry powder, flavored instant tea or coffee, food colorings, gelatin starch, grain alcohol (such as beer, ale, rye, scotch, bourbon or grain vodka), gum base (such as in chewing gum), hydrolyzed vegetable protein, malt, marshmallows, modified food starch, monosodium glutamate, non-dairy creamers, packaged rice mixes, preservatives processed meats (such as sausages, hot dogs, or bologna), pudding, salad dressing, soy sauce, spices and spice mixtures, textured vegetable protein, vegetable starch and white or malt vinegar.

Gluten-Relief FAQ

What is gluten?
Gluten is a protein that is present in wheat, barley and rye products. Gluten is often used in manufacturing food because it provides structural stability and elasticity to the product. Americans are increasingly reporting intolerance to gluten, manifesting as symptoms of gastrointestinal disruption in response to ingestion of offending foods. However, it is difficult to eliminate gluten completely from the diet, as there are several hidden sources.

How long should I take Gluten Relief before feeling results?
Gluten Relief should be taken 5-10 minutes prior to eating. The typical, recommended dose is 1 to 2 capsules per meal. There are several variables that may affect the required dosage, for example:
Content of meal
Size of meal
Severity of intolerance
Nutritional status
Depending on these variables, along with one’s individual response to digestive enzyme therapy, the dose can be as high as 4-5 capsules per meal. It is advisable to experiment with dosage, considering there is no upper limit or adverse effects in exceeding your supplement needs.

Why is it important to take Gluten Relief with food?
Since Gluten Relief aids in digestion, it is contraindicated to use the enzyme without eating. Although it is not harmful to take Gluten Relief on an empty stomach, it is simply a waste of money.  If you take digestive enzymes too soon before a meal, you risk the enzyme becoming inactive. The food and enzyme must be in the stomach together for proper results.

Are there any side effects involved with Gluten Relief?
Side effects with Gluten Relief are rare, but not impossible. Mild cramping may occur, as the intestinal lining begins to cleanse. Other rare, but reported side effects include minor gastrointestinal disturbances, like bloating or gas. Starting off at a low dose can minimize any possible side effects. Side effects should clear with regular use, after a tolerance is established.

Can I take Gluten relief with other systemic or digestive enzymes?
Although digestive and systemic enzymes arenot contraindicated in terms of ingredients, they should not be taken at the same time. The purpose of digestive enzymes is to aid in digestion of specific foods, so taking them with food is an obvious recommendation. Because systemic enzymes require an empty stomach for maximum absorption, they must be taken separately from digestive enzymes. There are no adverse interactions between systemic and digestive enzymes, but they serve different purposes, and thus should be taken as directed for best results.

Can I open the capsule and pour it onto my food instead of swallowing the capsule?
If you find that you have trouble swallowing the capsules, pouring its contents onto food is definitely an option. You may also open the capsule into a glass of water, being sure to drink the entire glass. If you choose to take the enzymes this way, it is best to consume the entire content as soon as possible to ensure you are receiving the full benefits within your body (rather than on your plate).

FAQ

What is digestive enzyme therapy?

Digestive enzyme therapy is the use of plant or animal-based dietary supplements to aid in digestion and promote balanced metabolism. *All of our products are of plant origin, meaning they are 100% vegetarian/vegan.  Although the body is equipped with enzymes that perform digestive actions, certain conditions can affect their production and effectiveness. States of disease and aging are both factors affecting enzyme production and action.

 

What is a digestive proteolytic enzyme?

Proteolytic enzymes break down proteins into their building-blocks, which are called amino acids. The body requires 20 different amino acids, 8 of which are referred to as essential amino acids because they cannot be synthesized by the human body. These essential amino acids must be obtained from the food we eat. Without sufficient proteolytic enzymes, the body is unable to break down and absorb these necessary nutrients. Failure to fully digest proteins can result in undesirable symptoms such as bloating, abdominal cramping, flatulence and diarrhea.

What is gluten?

Gluten is a protein that is present in wheat, barley and rye products. Gluten is often used in manufacturing food because it provides structural stability and elasticity to the product. Americans are increasingly reporting intolerance to gluten, manifesting as symptoms of gastrointestinal disruption in response to ingestion of offending foods. However, it is difficult to eliminate gluten completely from the diet, as there are several hidden sources.

Gluten Relief should be taken 5-10 minutes prior to eating. The typical, recommended dose is 1 to 2 capsules per meal. There are several variables that may affect the required dosage, for example:

Nutritional status

Depending on these variables, along with one’s individual response to digestive enzyme therapy, the dose can be as high as 4-5 capsules per meal. It is advisable to experiment with dosage, considering there is no upper limit or adverse effects in exceeding your supplement needs.

 

What if I miss a dose?

Since digestive enzymes aid in digestion of food that is otherwise difficult to tolerate, finding yourself without them may be tricky. However, although digestive enzymes are recommended to be taken prior to a meal, if you find yourself missing a dose, we recommend that you take them directly after your meal. Don’t worry; they’ll be just as efficient!

 

Why is it important to take Gluten Relief with food?

Since Gluten Relief aids in digestion, it is contraindicated to use the enzyme without eating. Although it is not harmful to take Gluten Relief on an empty stomach, it is simply a waste of money.  If you take digestive enzymes too soon before a meal, you risk the enzyme becoming inactive. The food and enzyme must be in the stomach together for proper results.

Other rare, but reported side effects include minor gastrointestinal disturbances, like bloating or gas. Starting off at a low dose can minimize any possible side effects. Side effects should clear with regular use, after a tolerance is established.

 

What does “proprietary blend” mean?

Proprietary refers to a patent, or ownership. Applying this concept to our digestive enzyme blend it means that we alone own the rights to the specific blend of enzymes found in Gluten Relief, making our product different from similarly marketed digestive enzyme supplements. Gluten Relief encompasses an all-inclusive digestive aid product that assists in the digestion of several nutrients, not just gluten.

 

Can I take Gluten relief with other systemic or digestive enzymes?

Although digestive and systemic enzymes arenot contraindicated in terms of ingredients, they should not be taken at the same time. The purpose of digestive enzymes is to aid in digestion of specific foods, so taking them with food is an obvious recommendation.

    Gluten Relief has been EXTREMELY helpful for me for my Celiac’s condition. I was contaminated with a hidden gluten for 10 days and I was very sick. I could not keep any food in me for over 20 days. Gluten Relief helped my system heal and was the ONLY thing that allowed me to start eating food. I take it with me at all times and I take it immediately at the first sign that my system might have gotten any gluten. It calms my intestinal track quickly. I have recommended this to my family members.

    Gluten Relief is great for kids with on the the autism spectrum who have GI issues and are on gluten-free/casein-free diets. Before Gluten Relief we had to follow the diet pretty strictly. Now thanks to these life-changing enzymes, my son can enjoy more of the foods he loves. We still follow the diet but no worries if he gets a little gluten here and there, the DPP-IV enzymes break down gluten and casein so they don’t upset his stomach or cause diarrhea. They were especially helpful on vacation. My son was able to enjoy pancakes for breakfast every day!! Very grateful for these wonderful products!!!

    Our daughter with autism is able to eat a more varied diet thanks to these enzymes!! Before she could only tolerate chicken nuggets but now fruits, veggies, grains, and dairy no longer go right through her. We give her 2-3 Gluten Relief with every meal and one with every snack. BMs are more typical and regular and no explosive diarrhea, no toileting worries when out in public. Gluten Relief has changed her life and ours!!
