Let’s welcome Enzymedica as a sponsor of Celiac Disease Awareness Month with Celiac and the Beast!
Please keep in mind that when we’re talking about digestive enzymes, that no commercial enzyme can full degrade gluten in your digestive tract. Just because digestive enzymes help digest gluten does not mean that you can/should knowingly eat gluten and use these enzymes to cover your tracks. Unfortunately your body still knows you cheated!
I use Enzymedica digestive enzymes after almost every meal. My breakfast is usually easily-digestible carbs, so I tend to not have to take any enzymes at that meal. Any meal containing harder-to-digest proteins, or vegetables, especially at night, however – I swallow a few of these high-quality enzymes. If you’ve never used enzymes before, use this handy page on Enzymedica’s site to understand what enzymes are and why you need them, especially as you age.
- Digest Gold: the most advance enzyme formula
- Digest Spectrum: A formula for multiple food intolerances
The two are really common in what they contain and only $1 difference retail. I find that they’re both helpful to help my body digest harder-to-digest food. Digestive enzymes are safe to use after every meal, daily. They simply increase your own body’s potential for digestion. If you have lactose intolerance, you’re likely low on lactase to help digest dairy. a product like Enzymedica can help. If you have trouble with just one thing like lactose, try their Dairy Assist. Do beans give you gas? Me too, it’s okay to talk about farts! Try Enzymedica’s BeanAssist. Please note that an intolerance is different than an allergy. If you have an allergy, do not eat your offending allergy.
Again, while an enzyme does not fully degrade gluten in your system, whenever I get glutened, or go out to eat somewhere new, I take Enzymedica’s GlutenEase or Digest Spectrum (that includes the enzyme to degrade – to a point – any random gluten). Remember that one time I ate the wrong Dr. Praeger’s fish sticks (the kind made with wheat instead of rice)? I ate a ton of this to try to stave off at least some of the effects of what gluten will do to me. I always have a few bottles on hand, and always always travel with them, along with activated charcoal – just in case. As you probably know, I have intolerances to many foods. While I always try to avoid my intolerances, on top of a strict no-gluten policy, I just never know what is coming my way in the next city.
I’d love for you to get to know Enzymedica better and start to introduce their products into your arsenal of weapons against food intolerances.
