Expand Overview


Why are gluten and casein a concern?

Because some individuals experience digestive discomfort when they eat foods with these proteins - even when they try to avoid obvious sources:
For some, gluten and casein can be the cause of occasional gas, bloating, and indigestion. However, the right digestive enzymes can make a difference when trying to support a gluten free and casein free lifestyle.*

Why take Gluten Defense?

Gluten Defense is specifically formulated to defend against gluten*:
Gluten and casein are found where you'd never expect them - salad dressings, cold cuts - even toothpaste! Gluten Defense features DPP IV (dipeptidyl peptidase) activity, from a protease enzyme specific to digestion of gluten and casein.*

Gluten Defense also includes a complete range of digestive enzymes*
Competing products only tackle gluten - Gluten Defense helps you digest other proteins, fats and carbohydrates as well.*

Caution: While Gluten Defense will reduce the level of reactive gliadin and gluten proteins in a meal, it is advised that celiac disease sufferers continue with their normal gluten exclusion diet as even small amounts of gliadin can cause adverse reactions in the most sensitized individuals. If pregnant, nursing, or taking any medications, consult a healthcare professional before use.

Gluten from grains and casein from dairy.
