Enzymedica - GlutenEase With DPP-IV Activity - 60 Capsules
Enzymedica GlutenEase contains a unique protease Thera-blend that digests gluten and casein. DPP-IV is well known for digesting gluten (a protein) and gliadin (a peptide) which some individuals have difficulty digesting. The enzymes amylase and glucoamylase assist in the digestion of the carbohydrate portion of grains (such as wheat) which often contain gluten.
Gluten intolerance results when there is difficulty in breaking down specific amino acid links (called peptides) in the gluten molecules. This gluten intolerance can lead to intestinal inflammation and a number of disorders including Leak Gut or other syndromes.
Further the villi of the small intestine provide us with the ability to absorb nutrients from the foods we eat and provide enzymes necessary to complete the digestion of difficult proteins. If these villi become damaged in some way, such as through food allergies, bad eating habits, age, strong medications, etc. the body has reduced ability to produce the necessary enzymes to complete the digestion of offending foods. This can lead to responses such as malabsorption, nutrient deficiencies, or other digestive disorders.
The main treatment for gluten or casein intolerance has been to remove offending foods from a person's diet, also known as the GFCF (gluten-free, casein-free) diet. Though effective in the short term, removing foods does not provide an ultimate solution. Once these foods are reintroduced to the diet, symptoms return.
GlutenEase offers those suffering with such intolerances assistance in digestion and assimilation of the offending proteins. Proteases high in DPP-IV activity assist in normalizing inflammatory response to the gluten peptide, thus better digesting and utilizing gluten containing foods. This proactively supports the gut, allowing proteins to be properly broken down and absorbed in their digested state; broadening the potential food groups a person may eat. GlutenEase may also be used by those who wish to remain on the GFCF diet to ensure complete breakdown of proteins safe and effectively.
Added Benefits Of GlutenEase
GlutenEase addresses a related issue that also stems from gluten intolerance; problems digesting the carbohydrates of offending foods. Research has also found that gluten has a protein and carbohydrate fraction. For this reason, GlutenEase contains Amylase Thera-blend and glucoamylase. Amylase Thera-blend has proven highly effective for those who suffer with an amylase deficiency or have difficulty digesting sugars and starches. Glucoamylase is necessary to finish the digestion of those sugar and starch molecules to glucose, the simplest sugar used by the body for energy.
About Enzymedica: The Enzyme Experts
Enzymedica is dedicated to providing exceptional enzyme-focused supplements at the most therapeutic levels available in the natural foods industry and beyond. It is their commitment to provide unprecedented education and research that propels individuals on the path to vibrant health.
In the spring of 1998, Enzymedica was born. The role of Enzymedica is to offer the public the most effective enzyme products available. They utilize the expertise of doctors, researchers and clinicians in formulating each of their products. They are proud of what they have to offer the public, namely therapeutic enzyme supplements that have been health professional proven.
Enzymedica's entire focus and purpose is enzymes. They are the experts. Unlike most of their competitors, Enzymedica does not make vitamin supplements or herbal cleanses. All they manufacture are the highest quality, highest potency enzyme products available.
Enzymedica products are Health Professional proven. Enzymedica products contain the highest therapeutic activities available. No other company uses higher active units in a multiple enzyme line. In addition to a digestive enzyme that is on average three times stronger than their competitors, Enzymedica has a therapeutic digestive enzyme blend, a carbohydrate digestion and allergy assistance blend, a blood purifier, and a fat digestion and cardiovascular product.
Enzymedica is proud to be GMP Registered through NSF International. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures, and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that it is represented to possess.
NSF International helps protect you by certifying products and writing standards for food, water and consumer goods. As an independent, not-for-profit organization, NSF's ongoing public health commitment is to encourage everyone to live safer. The NSF GMP Registration for contract manufacturers and internal manufacturing facilities of dietary supplement companies enables contract manufacturers to become independently registered by NSF as complying with GMP requirements as listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2006. NSF's Dietary Supplement Standard is updated to keep pace with FDA GMP regulations.
Enzymedica uses an exclusive Thera-blend process for its protease, lipase, amylase and cellulase. This means that each of these enzymes actually represents multiple strains. For example, there are actually four proteases in the Thera-blend protease. They are blended for their ability to break down numerous bonds of protein in varying pH levels. Enzymedica does this at a considerable expense. From a label description Enzymedica also sacrifices active units to provide the best blend possible. A single protease, for example, could produce more active units per milligram than a multiple protease. However, the active pH would be narrow and the number of protein bonds it could break would be limited.
Enzymedica products are 100% vegan and vegetarian. Enzymedica uses no fillers in any of its enzyme formulations.
You will no doubt notice how small the capsules are in comparison to similar products. This is a result of using concentrates with no fillers.
Enzymedica continues to research the therapeutic effectiveness of plant based enzymes through doctors and clinicians. Currently, the company is coordinating and funding research that is ongoing. Enzymedica has every batch third party tested. This ensures they always meet label claim.
