Do you feel better when you avoid wheat (barley and rye) products? If you answered yes, you might be one of the many Americans who have a gluten sensitivity.
Signs you are gluten senstitive may include:
-Digestive problems- including abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, constipation or diarrhea
-Difficulty concentrating, trouble remembering information, confusion (brain fog)
-Muscle and joint pains
-Numbness and tingling in the arms and legs
-Skin issues- red, itchy bumps (gluten intolerance rash)
Gluten is made up of several different proteins- the two main groups are gliadin and glutenin- which are very hard to digest. If the gluten proteins are undigested, the immune system can attack the lining of the small intestine. Intolerance to gluten can affect cells, tissues and all systems in the body. Breaking down the proteins help control the symptoms of gluten sensitivity and prevents damage to the lining of the intestine. Considering that our overall health depends heavily on the health of our gut, gluten intolerance can be a definite detriment to our health.
Regalabs Gluten Digestive contains Protease and Protease DPPIV. Protease is a type of enzyme that helps us digest different kinds of proteins (a process called hydrolysis).
Protease breaks down proteins into peptides which break down into amino acids. We need a steady supply of amino acids for proper growth and repair. Protease enzymes allow for the proper function of our digestive and immune systems, kidneys, liver, spleen, pancreas and bloodstream. Protease helps the vitamins and minerals we ingest work properly and are also needed for hormones to function properly.
Protease DPPIV- Sometimes gluten cannot be avoided even though a person is doing their best to avoid it. Cross-contamination can result in small amounts of gluten being found in everyday products. It is especially hard when eating out or traveling. DPPIV is an enzyme intended for those sensitive to gluten who are already following a gluten-free diet but may need help breaking down gluten proteins that are unintentionally ingested.
Regalabs Gluten Digestive is formulated to enhance digestion, support intestinal health, repair the digestive system and help with nurtient assimilation.
