I stumbled upon this product today in the pharmacy department at Walmart called Gluten Cutter. It immediately caught my attention because as far as I knew there was nothing available that allows a person with gluten sensitivity to eat gluten. I have heard of vaccines but nothing that you could buy over-the-counter.
The box states that “Gluten Cutter helps digest wheat, dairy, and other grains”. The box then explains what gluten is, where it can be found, and how their product is supposed to circumvent the negative effects of gluten. The secret sauce appears to be in their proprietary blend of enzymes named GCX50. There is no explanation how this magic enzyme actually executes this previously impossible feat. The box is very clear in stating that these claims have NOT been evaluated by the FDA so… good luck! We hope it doesn’t make your symptoms worse!
Well, Does It Really Work?
