A Breakthrough Formula for Patients with Celiac Disease & Gluten Sensitivity: GlutArrest™
Finally, a clinical-grade formula that offers protection for those with Celiac Disease or non-Celiac gluten sensitivity who accidentally come in contact with gluten. For many individuals there has been a constant fear and social isolation that occurs when eating out, enjoying a friends BBQ, or even attending your grandchild’s birthday party- The fear of being GLUTENED.
GlutArrest is a gluten pulverizing formula uniquely designed with powerful enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics to break down gluten proteins by targeting both internal and external peptide bonds.* GlutArrest goes beyond the traditional DPPIV enzyme, offering superior degradation of gluten proteins by breaking down unhydrolyzed gluten peptides.* Additionally, the highly specialized prebiotic, PreForPro® is unique in supporting the proliferation of beneficial bacteria in both the small and large intestines.* This plays a critical role in breaking down gluten and other proteins to promote a healthy intestinal tract.
For those with sensitivities to gluten and even dairy proteins, these types of events can often have very detrimental effects on those who are affected. For the 1% of the population with Celiac Disease, it only takes one incident of consuming a minute amount of gluten to create an immune and inflammatory cascade that will last for 60 to 90 days.
Simply, taking two capsules prior to potentially coming in contact with gluten can significantly reduce one’s risk of an immune response.

What is Gluten?
Gluten is found most commonly in wheat and other related grains, such as barley and rye. The word gluten comes from the Latin word for glue, and is typically defined as an elastic protein that is left behind after starch is removed or washed away from wheat flour.
Gluten’s Effect on Digestion
Undigested gluten proteins trigger the immune system to attack the inner lining of the small intestine, resulting in varying levels of gluten sensitivity. Breaking down these proteins can help alleviate the symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity and prevent further damage to the body.
For those affected by gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity, avoiding gluten is the first line of defense. However, avoiding gluten isn’t always easy, even for diligent patients.
Hidden Sources of Gluten
Gluten is often added to foods as a thickener, binder, flavor enhancer, and protein supplement. In addition to obvious sources such as bread, crackers, other baked goods, and pasta, gluten can also be found in food colorings, candy, pudding, marshmallows, flavored teas or coffee, grain alcohol (such as beer, ale, rye, scotch, and vodka), gravy, imitation meats, processed meats, salad dressing, seasoning packets, soups, soy sauce, and dietary supplements.
Options Currently Available to Address Gluten Intolerance & Sensitivity
The main protease (or protein-degrading) enzyme used to address gluten intolerance and sensitivity is the dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP-IV) enzyme. DPP-IV is an exopeptidase enzyme, meaning it cleaves the terminal amino acids on the outside of the gluten molecule. (It is also used to break down casein, for those with milk allergies or sensitivities.) However, while protease enzymes such as DPP-IV do partially break down proteins, they typically do not break down large proline-rich peptides — and these are considered to be the main culprit in gluten intolerance and sensitivity.
GlutArrest™ to the Rescue!
When gluten-reactive patients have accidentally ingested gluten, breaking down the proteins quickly can help alleviate discomfort. A unique multi-enzyme, probiotic, and prebiotic blend, GlutArrest™ is a gluten-pulverizing formula designed to effectively address inadvertent gluten ingestion.* GlutArrest™ goes beyond formulas featuring the DPP-IV enzyme, offering quick and more complete degradation of gluten proteins.*
