GlutenEase (60 caps)
Support for those suffering from Gluten Intolerance*
Gluten is a protein found in grains, notably wheat, rye and barley. Gluten intolerance may affect up to 15% of the world’s population.1 It occurs when there is a difficulty in breaking down specific amino acid chains (called peptides) in the gluten protein. The main approach to dealing with 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 those foods are reintroduced to the diet, the symptoms return.
Enzymedica’s GlutenEase contains a unique combination of proteases for digesting gluten and casein.* Proteases high in DPP-IV activity assist in breaking down gluten and gliadin proteins which may reduce the onset of symptoms associated with intolerance.2 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 is a protein and carbohydrate fraction. For this reason, GlutenEase also contains Amylase Thera-Blend™ and Glucoamylase. Amylase andglucoamylase enzymes assistin the digestion of the carbohydrate portion of grains (such as wheat) which often contain gluten.* Glucoamylase is necessary to finish the digestion of those sugar and starch molecules to glucose, the simplest sugar used by the body for energy.*
