Arthur Andrew Medical - Devigest Advanced Digestive Support - 90 Capsules
At Arthur Andrew they are pleased to announce the arrival of their newest formulation. Resolve digestive complaints, try Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support.
Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support is more powerful and concentrated than its earlier predecessors. Just one capsule with meals can ease the digestion of even the most troublesome of foods. Now more powerful and concentrated, Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support can support severe dairy and gluten intolerances as well as reduce instances of abdominal gas and bloating. Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support now contains a highly potent Peptidase with 500 units of DPP-IV activity per serving. Peptidase breaks down gluten and casein, two digestive irritants. Many formulas today have begun to utilize this amazing enzyme, but rarely is it incorporated in a broad spectrum blend, which leaves many formulas incomplete. Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support is a complete and broad spectrum formula, making the need for supplementing other digestive enzyme products obsolete.
Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support also includes Alpha Galactosidase which is the active ingredient in the ever-popular product Beano. Our bodies lack the enzymes that are responsible for breaking down certain carbohydrates in the small intestine. This causes improperly digested food to enter the large intestine where bacteria then begin to break it down, creating large amounts of gas which can lead to flatulence, abdominal bloating and digestive discomfort. Unlike many other gas medicines, Alpha Galactosidase can help prevent gas before it starts by breaking down complex carbohydrates found in gassy foods into simpler, more easily digestible sugars.
A similar phenomenon occurs with those that experience digestive distress when comsuming dairy foods. Lactose intolerance is the inability to break down milk sugars known as lactose found in all dairy products. Lactose intolerance is the result of lacking the essential enzyme Lactase. Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support now contains 444% more lactase than its predecessor per serving so those with lactose intolerance can enjoy dairy foods without experiencing digestive distress.
Proper digestion is a prerequisite for optimal health. Unless digestive physiology is in order, no other self-regulating or self-healing systems are able to perform in normal states. Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support ADS serves not only in the aiding of the digestive process as a whole, but also therapeutic applications. Too often insufficient digestive enzyme production is overlooked as the culprit of indigestion, heartburn and acid reflux. Gas, bloating, incomplete digestion, and abdominal discomfort can play a part in the everyday life of many individuals. Properly digested foods add nutrients to our bodies, provide energy, as well as stimulate serotonin and other hormones that are vital for proper human function. Supplementing with a high-quality digestive enzyme like Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest Advanced Digestive Support ADS may be the answer to many of these concerns.
Are you lactose intolerant?
It is important to note that lactose intolerance is different than a dairy allergy. Lactose intolerance is the inability to metabolize milk sugar known as lactose. This occurs due to a lack of lactase in the digestive system, which is the enzyme responsible for breaking down lactose. Studies have shown that the majority of adults experience a decrease in lactase activity as they age. When the body is deficient in lactase, the lactose passes directly into the colon intact, allowing for fermentation to occur. The fermentation process produces gases which can cause abdominal symptoms such as bloating, gas, cramps and diarrhea. Symptoms usually appear 30 minutes to 2 hours after eating and vary by individual and the type/quantity of dairy foods consumed. Devigest contains a highly potent lactase enzyme to assist the body with digesting foods high in lactose. When taking lactase-digesting enzymes like those in Devigest, you should take them with the first bite of the dairy product for maximum efficacy. Taking them too soon or too far after consuming dairy reduces lactase’s ability to interact with the lactose within the digestive tract.
Are you gluten intolerant?
Celiac disease, or gluten sensitive enteropathy, is a common, chronic disease that is now thought to affect 1 in every 133 people in the U.S. alone.
People who suffer from celiac disease are unable to eat foods containing gluten, which is a certain protein that is found in the grains of rye and wheat. In those who have celiac disease, gluten triggers an autoimmune reaction that leads to the destruction of the villi in the small intestine. When this autoimmune response occurs, people with celiac disease produce antibodies that attack the intestine, which causes illness and damage.
Symptoms of celiac disease include diarrhea or constipation, abdominal pain, weight loss, malabsorption, chronic fatigue, etc. These symptoms mimic those of people who are allergic or sensitive to gluten; however, unlike a simple sensitivity, celiac disease can be life threatening if left untreated. For those who have a sensitivity to gluten, supplementing with a product such as Devigest that contains a potent blend of digestive enzymes including Dipeptidyl Peptidase may help curb symptoms and allow one to once again enjoy all of the foods that they have grown to love.
There is currently a blood test available to screen for the presence of specific antibodies related to celiac, which is followed by an intestinal biopsy for final confirmation of the disease. Celiac disease is now classified as an autoimmune disorder like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.
There are no pharmaceutical drugs to treat celiac, and there is no cure. Those who suffer from celiac disease must completely eliminate gluten from their diet to avoid irreparable intestinal damage. In addition to eliminating gluten, many people are also supplementing with high quality probiotic supplements such as Syntol. Research is currently underway to find whether probiotics may help to alleviate the severity of celiac disease, and even inhibit damage to the intestinal tract when gluten is inadvertently consumed. Probiotics can help to heal damage caused by chronic inflammation as well as aid the digestive system in properly absorbing nutrients that are normally lost due to celiac disease. Many people that suffer from celiac disease remain symptomatic after eliminating gluten from their diet; a probiotic such as Syntol may help aid in reducing these symptoms.
What is Devigest?
Devigest ADS is the newest member in the Arthur Andrew family of products. Devigest was formulated to replace Devacor, the first digestive enzyme blend introduced by Arthur Andrew Medical. Devigest is a broad spectrum digestive enzyme blend that will help restore the body’s depleted digestive enzymes, supporting balanced digestion and improving issues associated with unhealthy digestion. Devigest includes a much more potent blend of enzymes for breaking down gluten and dairy products. Additionally, our own pancreatic enzymes require an alkaline pH for maximum activity. Sodium and potassium bicarbonates, which are normal components of pancreatic juices, have been added to ensure that a sufficiently alkaline medium is present.
How is Devigest Different From its Predecessors?
Devigest includes a highly potent Peptidase with 500 units of DPP-IV activity per serving. It also now contains Alpha Galactosidase (the active ingredient in the product Beano) as well as higher potency enzymes such as Lactase, Acid-Stable Protease, and Glucoamylase. Devigest was formulated to be more effective and provide even more relief for those with digestive intolerances to gluten, casein, dairy, and much more. Those with a diet high in gassy foods such as legumes and cruciferous vegetables will highly benefit from the addition of Alpha Galactosidase.
What are “Digestive Enzymes”?
Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts in biochemical reactions. Every enzyme has a specific reactant known as a substrate, which can be thought of like a lock and key. Devigest contains several enzymes or “keys” that can “unlock” (or breakdown) many of the typical types of food common in our diets. The enzymes in Devigest ADS are specific to the digestion of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Additional enzymes have been added to help digest dairy products as well as artificial food dyes and preservatives.
How Do I Know if I Need Digestive Enzymes?
A healthy body produces enzymes in sufficient quantities to ensure proper digestion of most foods. However, some people do not produce sufficient quantities of these enzymes, and often get the common symptoms of indigestion such as gas, bloating, heartburn, abdominal discomfort and constipation. These symptoms are common indicators that one may benefit from supplementation of a digestive enzyme, though they are not necessary. Virtually everyone, even those who are asymptomatic, could benefit from the use of digestive enzymes.
Devigest ADS is the best choice for maintaining optimal digestion. Unless digestive physiology is in order, no other self-regulating or self-healing systems are able to perform in optimal states, including immune function. Gas, bloating and abdominal discomfort can play a part in the everyday life of many individuals. Supplementing with a high-quality digestive enzyme may be the answer to many of these problems.
How Does Devigest Work?
Devigest ADS is an enzyme blend that allows for more complete digestion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Unlike Devigest, many digestive enzyme blends are incomplete as they lack the ability to break down dairy products and food dyes or preservatives. Devigest includes an alkalization formula for optimal enzymatic activity.
Is Devigest Safe?
No serious or adverse side effects have been reported from taking digestive enzymes such as Devigest. Clinical studies have shown that even extremely large doses of these enzymes are not toxic.
