Caution: While Gluten Defense will reduce the level of reactive gliadin and gluten proteins in a meal, it is advised that celiac disease sufferers continue with their normal gluten exclusion diet as even small amounts of gliadin can cause adverse reactions in the most sensitized individuals.

I carry it with me when I eat out-either in someone's home or in a restaurant. I haven't used it long enough to discern it's all around effectiveness, but I had no "episodes" when I took this product each time I ate out during a recent vacation. As a Celiac life can be very difficult and anything that helps to safeguard my health is useful for me.
Enzymes are sometimes hard to tell if they are working or not. It's not like I can take this and then go eat some pasta to see "if it works". Gluten hides under so many names and is in practically everything. I use this as a "just in case" to hopefully reduce any reactions if I were to unknowingly eat gluten when dining out. My reactions occur within 20-25 minutes of eating the gluten food and immediately have to excuse myself for the rest of the night, which is embarrassing to say the least when out with a group and having a great time, then hope for the best for the following 48 hours. So far, after taking this product and practicing safe food habits, I haven't had any reactions thus far.
Works really well

I have been lactose intolerant for 20 years (which is easier to manage) but I have found that over the past few years I have become increasingly intolerant to wheat, gluten and all dairy. My symptoms included bloating, wind, nausea and burning sensations in my bowels. I have only used this product 3 times so far, but have found it to work fantastically. I have had none of the above symptoms when I have eaten these foods and taken the two tablets. I will continue to use this product. I am very happy with the results. :)
WORKS FOR ME

This has helped me and my son whenever we eat out and have no other choice than to consume gluten-filled foods, and taking two of these prior to meals have helped us avoid gut related issues.

I tried even double dose but didn't feel it helps my digestion.

My daughter has a gluten sensivity and sometimes it's really hard to say no to gluten food when we are in a party or traveling. This product is a blessing for us. Thank you!
