For gluten sensitivity

30 Capsules

GLUTENBREAK is a probiotic supplement specifically formulated with 6 probiotic strains and Tolerase G® (prolyl-oligopeptidase), an enzyme that helps the body to break down proline-rich proteins like gluten that are difficult to digest1.
The poorly digested gluten fragments can cause an adverse response in some individuals, resulting in flatulence or bloating, abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation and allergic skin conditions2-3.
By supplementing your diet with GLUTENBREAK, you can assist the breakdown of hidden gluten in foods and relieve some of the digestive symptoms it may cause. The probiotic combination inside GLUTENBREAK may also assist in the breakdown of other common digestive irritants like lactose and other FODMAPs4, as well as support a healthy gut and immune system.

What does GLUTENBREAK do?

  • Strengthens the immune system

  • Supports a healthy gut

  • Helps fight infections caused by harmful bacteria

  • Helps the body digest gluten to reduce the symptoms of gluten sensitivity

Probiotics can assist in:

  • The breakdown of gut irritants like lactose and other FODMAPs4.

  • Reducing the risk and severity of diarrhoea and constipation6.

  • Minimising GI discomfort and bloating associated with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) & colitis (intestinal inflammation)5.

Where is gluten found in the diet?

A lifelong gluten-free diet is currently the only prescribed treatment for gluten intolerant individuals. Although effective, such a diet is difficult to maintain due to the abundant usage of gluten in the food industry. On average a person consumes between 15 and 20 grams of gluten daily while on a normal diet, most of which is derived from food products that are commonly associated with wheat like bread, cookies, pizza and pasta. However, some of the gluten comes from other sources as it is often a hidden ingredient. Products that are naturally gluten-free can contain (traces of) gluten due to contamination during cultivation, transport and manufacturing of food products7.

But not all gluten is obvious:

Studies show that even when adopting a gluten-free diet, unintentional gluten intake can range from 200 to 3,000 mg/day depending on how strictly the diet is followed. The average intake while on a gluten-free diet is ∼500mg/day8-10.

Sources of “hidden” gluten9-12:

  • Baked beans
  • Blue cheese
  • Candy
  • Chocolates
  • Colour (artificial, caramel)
  • Dry roasted nuts
  • French fries
  • Herbal teas
  • Ice cream
  • Icing
  • Processed meat
  • Puddings
  • Rice mixes
  • Salad dressings
  • Sauces
  • Soups
  • Soy sauce
  • Vegetarian burgers

Detailed Information:

Scheduling status: S0. Proprietary name (and dosage form): GLUTENBREAK (capsules). Pharmacological classification: D. 34.12 Multiple Substance Formulation. Complementary Medicine. Health Supplement. Pharmacological action: Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, essential for improving intestinal health.

GLUTENBREAK is a probiotic supplement specifically formulated with 6 probiotic strains and prolyl-oligopeptidase, an enzyme that helps break down gluten. Certain medication or disease states can affect microflora and therefore increase the risk and susceptibility of gut infections.

Probiotics can increase the levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut, creating an environment that is unfavourable to the growth of harmful bacteria.

By introducing live probiotic cultures to the intestinal tract, the beneficial gut flora populations are increased and transitory flora, including pathogenic or bad bacteria, are not able to colonise in the intestine.

By supplementing your diet with GLUTENBREAK, you can strengthen your barrier effect to keep you healthy.

GLUTENBREAK contains the enzyme prolyl-oligopeptidase, a naturally occurring enzyme that helps the body to break down proline-rich proteins like gluten that are difficult to digest.

The poorly digested gluten fragments can cause an adverse response in some individuals, resulting in flatulence, abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea and allergic skin conditions.

GLUTENBREAK helps the body to digest gluten and manage symptoms of gluten sensitivity.

Identification: GLUTENBREAK is an opaque white gelatine capsule filled with a white to off-white powder.

Presentation GLUTENBREAK is supplied as 30 capsules packed in 3 PVDC/aluminium blisters. Each carton contains 3 blister strips. Agera Health. 30 Capsules.
