What are enzymes and how do they work?
Enzymes do digestion. They are naturally occurring proteins that speed up reactions. Enzymes act like tiny scissors, cutting up the food we’ve eaten into smaller components. This helps our body more easily and fully absorb nutrients.
Without enough enzymes, our body can struggle to break down troublesome foods, leading to occasional gas, bloating, indigestion and irregularity. With all-natural enzyme supplementation, your body gets an extra boost to the digestive process, helping maximize energy and contributing to whole-body health.*
What causes gluten and casein intolerance, and how can enzymes help?
If our bodies have difficulty digesting bread and grains, the root cause comes from a lack of the right enzymes in our guts. Enzymes are designed to break down a specific kind of food or compound, so the more or less we have of certain enzymes, the better or worse we can digest gluten and casein.
GlutenEase contains DPP-IV, an enzyme shown to break down gluten.* It also has other enzymes to help out in the digestion of bread and grains.* Amylase is able to help digest the carbohydrate portion of grains and glucoamylase breaks down polysaccharides into easier to digest glucose units.*
What is different about GlutenEase enzymes versus others?
Not all enzyme supplements are created equal. Enzymedica's proprietary Thera-blend™ technology means that the enzymes found in GlutenEase will work throughout the entire pH spectrum found along your digestive tract. When other brand's enzyme formulas may fall short, in almost all acidic or alkaline environments, GlutenEase will be effective.
