Food sensitive individuals often suffer from gas, bloating and abdominal discomfort when eating common foods. Individuals with gluten and dairy sensitivities are extremely limited in their food selection. DG Protect is a uniquely designed enzyme blend with Glucalytic™ and Dairylytic™ that provides freedom and flexibility in food choices.
DG Protect is a uniquely designed digestive enzyme targeted to help maintain healthy gluten and dairy digestion. DG Protect includes both endopeptidase and exopeptidase activity chosen for their ability to hydrolyze gluten proteins, as well as a unique mixture of protease enzymes and lactase to assist the digestion of multiple constituents of dairy products.
Endopeptidases and Exopeptidases Digest Gluten
The unique combination of endopeptidases and exopeptidases present in DG Protect efficiently degrade both the internal and terminal peptide bonds of the gluten molecule. Specifically, enzymatic action creates the correct endopeptidase cleavage pattern near the long chain amino acids that need to be hydrolyzed by the exopeptidase, producing rapid degradation of gluten. The resultant smaller amino acids may be more easily absorbed by the body.
Lactase Breaks Down Lactose
Studies have demonstrated the ability of the enzyme blend in DG Protect to break down the lactose present in dairy quickly and efficiently and degrade varying lactose loads as measured via hydrogen breath test, along with reducing associated gastrointestinal symptoms.
Proteases Hydrolyze Dairy Proteins Including Casein and Whey Proteins
Protease enzymes in DG Protect support dairy protein digestion and absorption. Specifically, these enzymes hydrolyze milk proteins into smaller peptides that may be better absorbed by the body and less likely to bind to antibodies and help maintain normal immune balance.
