Ingredients & Description
Gluten Digest 60 Vegetarian Capsles
Enzymes play an essential role everyday in the human body. Some people have deficiencies in various enzymes and therefore often experience regular discomforts such as indigestion and painful gas and bloating. Those who are gluten sensitive cannot properly digest the protein and suffer consequences. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Many people attribute gluten intolerance to a wheat allergy. In part they may be correct however, not 100% accurate in their assumptions. In most cases, gluten intolerance can be very uncomfortable but does not cause damage to the body. There is another form of gluten intolerance that is more serious; Celiac Disease.
Celieac Disease is a condition in which the body attacks itself when gluten is introduced to the program. Rather than properly assimilating the protein, the body's immune system is activated and begins to attack villi which are tiny, tentacle-like appendages which are found on the walls of the intestine. It is the villi which help ensure the proper absorption of nutrients in the body.
Gluten Digest from NOW Foods contains Amylase, Glucoamylase, and Protease in addition to BioCore Dipeptidyl peptidase IV, a patented enzyme which specifically targets proline-containing peptides and enables the body to properly breakdown those difficult to digest enzymes which can cause daily discomforts.
