Gluten Guardian is a one of a kind blend of digestive enzymes targeting gluten and is also designed to optimize dairy digestion.
Gluten is a family of proteins found in wheat, whereas casein makes up 80% of the protein found in dairy. These proteins are difficult to digest because they are high in the amino acids proline and glutamine, which our body's natural digestive enzymes don’t recognize. As a result, they’re likely to remain undigested and stimulate the immune system, causing inflammation and autoimmunity.
Gluten in particular can open the gut barrier through the zonulin pathway, exposing the content inside the gut to your immune system. In people predisposed for autoimmunity or allergies, the leaky gut from gluten may trigger or worsen the disease. Incompletely digested gluten fragments can also get absorbed into the bloodstream and create have opioid-like effects.
Most dairy in North America have A1 casein, which is a common food allergen. Incompletely digested casein fragments may have opioid-like activities, as mother nature designs milk to help babies bond with their mothers. However, beyond infancy, A1 casein is a strong gut irritant that can irritate and inflame the gut, and slow down gut movement by acting like opiates.
Gluten and dairy can cause leaky gut, allowing the incomplete fragments to enter the bloodstream. Some people with compromised blood-brain barriers may experience the opiate effects from these foods. Not surprisingly, people with food addictions and emotional eating often turn to gluten and dairy. Studies suggest that some people with neurologic or mental health conditions may find their nervous system better balanced without gluten and dairy.
If you are healthy and experience minor discomfort with gluten and dairy, it is important to take a gluten-digesting enzyme to ensure that they are 100% digested if you do eat them.
If you have severe symptoms or flare-ups after eating gluten, you need to adopt a gluten free diet. However, a digestive enzyme supplement that targets gluten may help with minor accidental exposure. Keep in mind, however, that Gluten Guardian is not approved to treat or prevent any disease.
If you are on a restrictive diet or reaching a plateau with your weight loss program, a refeed meal allows you to enjoy your favorite foods and jumpstarts your metabolism. Even if you’re not dieting, you may want to enjoy your favorite treats while avoiding the harmful health effects.
The problem is that eating a lot of carbs, sugar, and gluten can often cause digestive upsets and inflammation. Therefore, it is important to supplement with digestive enzyme supplements targeting gluten and carbohydrates. Gluten Guardian is designed to ensure that your digestion is optimal and prevent digestive upset from these refeed meals or treats.
Your cheat or refeed meals are a way to spike your hormones to get glucose and amino acids into your muscle cells and replenish your glycogen stores. If you do the refeed right, you will experience better workout during the first few days after your refeed. Also, some people use holiday meals and social events as refeeds to maximize muscle gain, fuel their workouts, and minimize fat gain. In order to maximize muscle building and minimize inflammation, your protein digestion and absorption have to be optimal.
Inflammation and leaky gut can contribute to leptin and resistance, which may make you more likely to gain fat from these refeed meals. Gluten Guardian can help ensure optimal digestion, minimize undigested gluten and casein, and promote a balanced immune response. Also, AstraZyme can help maximize amino acid and peptide absorption.
Being tired and brain-fogged after meals are signs that your gut is working hard to digest your meals, and that you are getting inflammation from your food. A meal should simply take away your hunger, not put you to sleep. Gluten Guardian digestive enzymes help break down the difficult-to-digest gluten and casein, and also provides overall support for your digestive system. As a result, you will feel both satiated and energized after your meals.
People with celiac disease and gluten allergies need to completely avoid gluten. Also, many people with inflammatory symptoms, including difficulty losing weight, are likely to have gluten intolerances, so they may find it beneficial to go gluten-free. The problem is that it takes only “parts per million” of gluten to cause severe symptoms in those with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, so it can be a challenge to eat out or enjoy social occasions. If the kitchen handles gluten, chances are the gluten-free dishes are contaminated with some gluten.
The Aspergillus DPP IV has been shown to digest gluten in the gut of healthy people. People who took the enzyme had no trace of gluten left in their stomach at 1 hour, compared to 3 hours with the placebo. Also, the combination of DPP IV with pepsin (a stomach protease), such as found in Gluten Guardian®, can significantly reduce more gluten peptides than either enzyme alone.
Gluten-digesting enzymes do not give a free pass for those with celiac disease and gluten intolerance to eat as much gluten as they want. However, with many well-controlled cases of celiac disease find these enzymes helpful in cases of accidental gluten or dairy exposure. Some find that it provides significant relief after gluten exposure. However, Gluten Guardian is not approved to treat any conditions and individual responses may vary widely. Remember to work with your healthcare professional to decide what’s best for you.
Leaky gut, or intestinal permeability, allows partially digested foods and bacterial toxins to reach the bloodstream and stimulate the immune system. Many people with leaky gut develop food sensitivities and allergies, with gluten and dairy products being two of the most common culprits.
Optimizing your overall digestion, and ensuring that gluten and casein are completely digested, can support your gut barrier health. These may also help mitigate food sensitivities.
Gluten Guardian supports digestive function, especially for high-carb meals. It contains full-spectrum protein digestive enzymes, specifically designed to target gluten, casein, and carbohydrates. Astrazyme in Gluten Guardian promotes a balanced immune response and maximizes amino acid absorption.
The most important enzyme in Gluten Guardian is Peptidase DPP-IV, a potent gluten-digesting enzyme. It can also digest casein, a hard to digest protein that makes up 80% of the proteins in milk and dairy products. Therefore, Gluten Guardian helps you fully break down gluten and casein into amino acids that your body can use. By fully digesting them, the enzyme helps minimize immune responses to incompletely digested gluten and casein.
Take Gluten Guardian with meals that contain gluten, dairy, or any high-carbohydrate meals.
Gluten Guardian can also be taken on an empty stomach to harness the benefits of systemic protein-digesting enzymes. These include promoting exercise recovery, breaking down inflammatory proteins and scar tissues, and wound healing.
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (in short, “gluten sensitivity”) is a form of gluten intolerance that is milder than celiac disease. However, not all symptoms of gluten sensitivity have to do with the gut. Also, some symptoms of gluten and other food sensitivity can arise up to 72 hours after consuming the food.
Gluten sensitivity symptoms include:

Gluten and casein are sticky proteins that are very difficult to digest. They also tend to stimulate the immune system, which can lead to inflammatory symptoms, both inside and outside the gut. Gluten Guardian® is great for the occasions that you want to indulge in gluten-containing foods or eat out, especially if you have some sensitivity to gluten or dairy. However, it is not an approved treatment for Celiac disease, severe gluten intolerance, or allergies.
Most digestive enzymes don’t contain enzymes that digest the most difficult to digest parts of gluten and casein, such as DPP-IV. Gluten Guardian® contains a high dose of DPP-IV, along with other synergistic enzymes that optimize your digestion after consuming gluten-containing meals.
DPP IV is a family of enzymes, some of which control hormones, neuronal function, and inflammation in your body. Some food substances, including but not limited to partially digested gluten and casein, may cause symptoms by inhibiting enzymes in the DPP-IV family. Therefore, some people benefit from supplementing with digestive DPP IV on a regular basis to reduce food-based DPP IV inhibitors in the gut. However, keep in mind that Gluten Guardian® is not approved to treat any disease and you should consult your physician.
The Gluten Guardian® bottle contains 90 capsules.
Gluten Guardian® is not an approved treatment for any disease, including Celiac disease or gluten allergy.
