  • Gluten Digestion Aids

    Has anyone ever tried any of the gluten digestion enzyme supplements available? If so, what were your thoughts?

    I am no where near having Celiac disease, but I definitely get bloated and have some digestion issues when eating gluten, even when in small amounts. I ate it during my loads throughout the duration of my prep with Skip, and always felt absolutely horrible halfway through and the day after; stinky shit, terrible gas, felt hungover, no appetite, and BLOATED. After we were done working together I realized I might be gluten intolerant so I went entirely gluten-free during my loads and this made a world of a difference. I still hold a lot of water, but I don't feel like dying the next day, my shit floats, and my wife hasn't puked after walking by the bathroom in a while.

    Now Foods makes a supplement called Gluten Digest. I am considering grabbing a bottle and trying it with my next skipload, as having gluten would open up a large world of possibilities for me, but I wanted to see if anyone had any feedback on this type of product first.

    2007 - JABBFA Body Fitness (Figure) Championships - 2nd
    2008 - INBF NYC Hercules - 1st Novice
    2009 - INBF Barbados Universe - Open - 2nd

        My ma has celiac sprue disease. Not fun. If you're just irritated by gluten I'd say try out the Gluten Digest since you don't have full on celiac. Did you get yourself tested just in case?

          No, it's just an annoyance at this point

            Not particularly geared for gluten per se, but have you tried charcoal? That usually helps me when I feel bloat, gassy and distention from overeating...

              Macho, have you tried Heckman's flush? May be a good route to try...

                I think the problem is the breaking down of the proteins, not the removal of toxins. It may help though, I am not very well educated on this.
