Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!! My child and I both use these. For the occasional need to have gluten in our diets, these pills make it possible to eat the gluten and not have major side effects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have My son and I are gluten sensitive. I have become more so lately. While we eat gluten free, we find it necessary to take this with our meals to handle any trace gluten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from they work I tried these pills for my gluten problem they worked for me, I keep them handy at all times

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a help! After reading the negative reports about gluten, I thought I would have to give it up, and that is a nightmare. It's in everything. But this product blocks the effects of gluten that I eat, especially bread and cereals. I have found a friendly helper to enable me to eat gluten moderately but not give it up completely!
Date published: 2013-06-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Product! I use this for digestive issues when eating gluten or dairy in addition to other enzymes. Very effective for even hidden gluten/dairy that I am not aware of in products.
Date published: 2010-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best yet I have tried many supplements over the past couple years for controlling the stomach while eating dairy, and this by far is the best supplement I have found. It also has that extra protection for when you go out to eat for any gluten that may be present in your food without you knowing it. This product has saved me many times! I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you Swanson Vitamins!
