Food intolerance is a huge issue, especially gluten. You would be surprised at the amount of people I meet who can’t tolerate it. For some people, avoiding the food for a while solves the problem, but unfortunately it’s a long term issue for most people.

Some of you will do a food intolerance test to find out if you have any problems and some of you will do your investigation by avoiding different foods until you figure out which one is the culprit. If you suffer from non-coeliac gluten intolerance then One Nutrition Gluten Shield, a new supplement, will be of interest to you. Especially if you eat out, you are on holiday and can’t find the food you need, or are unsure of the ingredients.

Gluten Shield recently launched in Ireland and is the only EU approved enzyme that can break down 86% of residual gluten in just 10 minutes. You take Gluten Shield 10 minutes before any meal that you distrust and it may help you digest residual gluten so you may not have as much of the discomfort that you would normally have. It’s not designed as a get out of jail card. If you have intolerance you really need to look at the reasons why. It is often the result of a leaky gut, low digestive enzymes, or poor gut bacteria and this would need to be addressed. But certainly Gluten Shield can be the difference between enjoying your night out and hours of discomfort.

Common symptoms associated with gluten intolerance can include bloating, diarrhoea, wind,constipation, pain, low energy and mood can be affected too. There is a huge difference between non coeliac gluten intolerance and being coeliac, which is a disease. If you’re coeliac you have no option but to avoid gluten, not just because you suffer if you eat gluten, but because gluten damages the lining of the intestines. And people need to understand this, food hygiene is extremely important.

Gluten Shield is a food supplement. It is not intended to replace a gluten free diet and is not intended to prevent or treat Coeliac disease. It may be useful if you are following a gluten free diet and are concerned about unintentional or residual gluten in a gluten free diet.

If, on the other hand, you’re non-coeliac gluten intolerant, then take a look at Gluten Shield, the enzyme that breaks down gluten. It could be the answer to a more comfortable social life.

One Nutrition Gluten Shield is exclusive to Health Stores and Pharmacies nationwide.
