Gluten is a protein found in grains (notably: wheat, rye, and barley). Difficulty in breaking down specific amino acid peptides in gluten proteins is what causes gluten intolerance. Some studies estimate that up to 15% of the world’s population suffers from some form of gluten intolerance. The main approach to dealing with gluten or casein (milk protein) intolerance has been to remove offending foods from a person’s diet, also known as the GFCF (gluten-free, casein-free) diet. This strategy however does not actually address the problem, it merely avoids the symptoms.
Enzymedica’s GlutenEase Extra Strength is formulated from a unique combination of proteases, which aid in digestion of gluten and casein proteins. Proteases high in DPP-IV activity can assist in breaking down gluten and gliadin, which may reduce the onset of symptoms associated with gluten intolerance. Supplementing a healthy diet with GlutenEase Extra Strength may allow some individuals with gluten intolerance to expand their food options.
GlutenEase Extra Strength is also great for people who want to remain on a gluten-free diet, to aid in the complete breakdown of all proteins.
GlutenEase Extra Strength also addresses problems digesting the carbohydrates of offending foods. Research has found gluten to be a protein and carbohydrate fraction. To account for the carbohydrate issue, GlutenEase Extra Strength contains amylase Thera-Blend™ and glucoamylase. Amylase and glucoamylase enzymes assist in the digestion of the carbohydrate portion of grains (such as wheat) which often contain gluten. Glucoamylase is necessary to digest sugar and starch molecules into bioavailable glucose.
