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.

I bought some, but haven’t tried them yet. I’m always hesitant to try new things because I stay sick and always have side effects. This post reminded me to try them, so I will.
I’v used digestive enzymes for fat and meat. I’ m not sure that I believe that enzymes can actually digest gluten and keep me from having a reaction to gluten. I’d like to try them but I had buying things that dont work for me.
I’ve used digestive enzymes before, but they were also mixed with HCL which gave me a bit of heartburn…Did help when glutened though. Very thankful for all these tips and tricks to get through the day to day!
I would love to win this and give it a try! Im still looking for a good probiotic that works best for me.
I want to win this so bad! For my daughter. Who is constantly having problems, every thought a very strict gf diet for CD. We would love to try these. Thank you a
We’ve used them with my son for a potential dairy allergy. I’ve never used them, but am interested in trying them for when I go out to eat for when I might get glutened.
I use digestive enzymes with every meal, love them.
I used digestive enzymes regularly to help wean myself off of Prilosec. Now I only need them occasionally.
I’m a regular user of GlutenEase. I take some with me everywhere I go!
I haven’t tried them yet.. but definitely would love too
I used to use lactase enzymes regularly until my gut healed with a gf diet.
I haven’t used digestive enzymes before. I’ve seen them on the shelves, but they are pretty expensive so I’ve never gone for them. But since reading your post about them, it sounds like these are exactly what I should look into. I feel sick after every meal, pretty much no matter what size- which means I feel almost all of the time. I’m excited to find something that might be helpful for this!
I’ve never tried them, but it sounds like they would be a good addition to my digestive care!
i havnt tried digestive enzymes before , but they look very informative
I havent tried them because i dont know what they are
Yes I’ve used digestive enzymes before. In fact I think it was this brand. I haven’t bought them in a while as I had thought I had all my digestive things figured out. I may need to get some again.
I’ve been using Enzymedica Digestive Enzymes for yrs now. I’ve tried others but always come back to this one. TY for making such a quality product!
Yes for legumes or if there is a chance garlic or onions are in food.
I have never tried these but have heard about them before but I have taken a pill called gluten ease that helps with the digestion of gluten and it helped when I accidentally ate some gluten
I’d be really interested to try these, especially the GkutenEase!
In the past I had tried some that helped me digest gluten if I was at a family or holiday get together and cross contamination chances are high. I have not tried these before, but would love to.
I would love to try these out!
Excellent blog yoou have here.. It’s difficult to find high quality writing like yours these days.
