Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does GliadinX® work?
A: GliadinX® breaks down gliadin, the damaging component of gluten. Gluten contains gliadin, a very large protein that can not be digested in the stomach. This molecule can cause damage in the small intestine. GliadinX® cuts this molecule into small harmless fragments, which can be digested in the stomach.
Q: Are there any studies proving the efficacy of GliadinX®?
A: GliadinX® contains AN-PEP, and enzyme that has been studied extensively for over 10 years at several reputable medical centers under laboratory condition and also in clinical human studies. This website lists a few such studies and there are many more that can be found online.
Q: Can CliadinX® cure or prevent celiac disease?
A: People who suffer from celiac disease have an inflammatory reaction to the gliadin component of gluten in the small intestine. GliadinX® does not cure or prevent celiac disease but it breaks down gliadin in the stomach and prevents an inflammatory reaction.
Q: Who should take GliadinX®?
A: Anyone with celiac disease who keeps a gluten-free diet and wants to an extra layer of protection against gluten cross-contamination or has accidentally ingested gluten can benefit from GliadinX®.
Anyone who wishes to eat gluten and experiences symptoms related to the gliadin component of gluten but is not at risk of gluten related damage to the body and is not on a physician prescribed gluten-free diet.
Q: Are all types of gluten sensitivities caused the gliadin protein?
A: Gluten contains many components. Some gluten sensitivities are caused by the gliadin protein but some sensitivities are caused by other components and at this time there is no test available to identify the type of sensitivity.
Q: Does GliadinX® work for all type of sensitivities?
A: GliadinX® is very specific for breaking down the gliadin molecule but has no effect on other components of gluten and is only effective against gliadin related sensitivities.
Q: Is GliadinX® FDA approved?
A: The FDA does not evaluate dietary supplements but all ingredients are registered with the FDA as NDI (New Dietary Ingredients) or GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe). The enzyme contained in GliadinX® is also registered with the following regulatory bodies:
· Listed Natural Health Product Ingredient in Canada
· Authorized novel food in the EU
· Listed Complementary Medicine Ingredient in Australia.
· Listed permitted substance in New Zealand
Q: Is GliadinX® different than other products?
A: GliadinX® has the highest concentration of AN-PEP of any products and the acidity has been optimized to enhance the enzymatic activity. There are several independent publications in peer reviewed medical journals showing that AN-PEP is the only available enzyme that can break down gliadin in the stomach before it enters the small intestine. Other products do not work at all or are too slow and can not prevent gliadin from entering the small intestine and causing damage.

Q: Is there an expiration date?
A: The manufacturing date is printed on the bottles and testing has confirmed that GliadinX® is effective for at least 2 years after the manufacturing date.
Q: Can I take GliadinX® after I have found out that I ate gluten?
A: It is important to neutralize the gluten while it is still in the stomach before it enters the small intestine. This time period is usually between 15 - 30 minutes, depending on the type food. Therefore, GliadinX® should be taken as soon as possible but after 30 minutes, it will only reduce damage but not completely prevent it.
Q: Is there a maximum number of GliadinX® capsules that I can take?
A: The ingredients of GliadinX® do not have a systemic effect and they pass through the digestive system therefore there is no maximum recommended number of capsules established and the number of capsules should be according to the ingested gluten.
Q: Should I ask my doctor or dietitian about GliadinX® or share my results with her/him?
A: GliadinX® is a relatively new product and we are working very hard to educate professionals about the scientifically proven benefits but many may not be aware of the product yet. If they have not heard of GliadinX®, please encourage them to visit our website and review the publications page. The research has been performed at major institutions and published in reputable peer-reviewed journals.
