A UNIQUE MIX OF ENZYMES TO SUPPORT NORMAL GLUTEN, CASEIN, BETA-LACTOGLOBULIN AND LACTOSE DIGESTION‡
Gluten/Dairy Digest contains a blend of digestive enzymes targeting gluten and dairy digestion. It provides a blend of proteases specially
formulated with dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity to help break down gluten peptide fragments in normal digestive systems.
Studies suggest that it may also promote a healthy cytokine balance to support G.I. comfort and function. Additionally, this formula provides a unique mixture of protease enzymes and lactase to assist digestion of multiple constituents of milk and dairy products. Protease enzymes targeting casein and beta-lactoglobulin proteins support dairy protein digestion. Casein is the predominant protein in milk and cheese. Betalactoglobulin occurs primarily in the whey fraction of milk. It is an acid-stable protein and therefore may not be broken down by pepsin and pancreatin. Lactase breaks down the milk sugar lactose, helping to relieve occasional bloating or gas that some people can experience from dairy consumption. If you are on a controlled diet and/or under the care of a health professional for dairy and/or gluten digestion, continue to follow those recommendations. This product is not intended to substitute for the recommendations of a health professional.‡
Dr. W's Comments: More and more people have become gluten sensitive. I think it comes from two main causes. One is that the stomach of most people has become weak – not producing enough stomach acid to initiate the digestion of gluten, the major protein of wheat. Another possibility is the introduction of GMOs. Genetically modified wheat may make wheat less friendly to our digestive system; avoid GMOs as part of your decision to live a more natural life.
This product is a great help to gluten-sensitive people to overcome small amounts of gluten that they might be getting in some meals. I don’t necessarily recommend it as a “take everyday” kind of support. If you do have gluten sensitivity, avoid wheat and other gluten products. The special protease enzymes in this especially target the gluten protein. There is also lactase enzyme if you are lactose-sensitive and have eaten dairy. It’s useful to know that this support can help cut inflammation in the GI as well, separate from these particular issues.
