Gluten Intolerance

February 1, 2014

Q: I’ve been told to avoid gluten-containing foods, but it’s not always easy to do so when I’m headed to a restaurant. Is there anything I can take to help make dining out an easier experience?

A: Yes, there is an enzyme called dipeptidyl peptidase-IV (DPP-IV) that helps the body to break down gluten, which can be found in foods that contain wheat, barley, rye, and triticale. This enzyme can be found in a product called Intolerance Complex. Taking 1 capsule at the beginning of a meal can help prevent symptoms of gluten-intolerance. Intolerance Complex is a suitable substitute for the discontinued Gluten Defense.
