Gluten intolerance results when there is difficulty in breaking down specific amino acid links (called peptides) in the gluten molecules. This gluten intolerance can lead to intestinal inflammation and a number of disorders including Leak Gut or other syndromes. The villi of the small intestine provide us with the ability to absorb nutrients from the foods we eat and provide enzymes necessary to complete the digestion of difficult proteins. If these villi become damaged in some way, such as through food allergies, bad eating habits, age, strong medications, etc. the body has reduced ability to produce the necessary enzymes to complete the digestion of offending foods. This can lead to responses such as malabsorption, nutrient deficiencies, or other digestive disorders. The main treatment for 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 these foods are reintroduced to the diet, symptoms return. GlutenEase 2X™ offers those suffering with such intolerances assistance in digestion and assimilation of the offending proteins. Proteases high in DPP-IV activity assist in normalizing inflammatory response to the gluten peptide, thus better digesting and utilizing gluten containing foods. 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 2X may also be used by those who wish to remain on the GFCF diet to ensure complete breakdown of proteins safe and effectively.
GlutenEase 2X addresses a related issue that also stems from gluten intolerance; problems digesting the carbohydrates of offending foods. Research has also found that gluten has a protein and carbohydrate fraction. For this reason, GlutenEase 2X contains the new Protease Thera-Blend (G2) for superior gluten degraduation! Enzymedica uses an exclusive Thera-Blend process for protease, lipase, amylase and cellulase enzymes. This means that each enzyme actually contains a blend of multiple strains. GlutenEase 2X contains an exclusive high potency Protease Thera-Blend (G2) for enhanced digestion of gluten and casein.
Unlike all other Thera-blends, the G2 combination is blended specifically for its ability to enhance DPP-IV activity and increase the speed and efficiency of Gluten protein digestion. The superior combination of Thera-blend (G2) and DPP-IV provide a minimum of 2 times the digestive support previously observed with our original Thera-blend. It does this by breaking down at least twice as much gluten protein as GlutenEase in less time.
Starch-digesting amylase enzymes in GlutenEase 2X assist in the digestion of the carbohydrate portion of grains (such as wheat) which contain gluten.
