Composed of 20 different amino acids, proteins are complex structures that can be difficult to digest. Amino acids are combined to make different proteins much like letters are combined to make different words. And just like certain words are harder to pronounce, certain proteins are harder to digest. Some proteins are easily broken down into smaller peptides and free amino acids, but others resist complete digestion. When consumed, the incomplete digestion of these proteins may cause gastrointestinal distress including bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation.
The cereal protein gluten is one such protein. Gluten is a rich source of the amino acid proline. Unfortunately, many of us are deficient in the enzymes necessary to digest the proline bonds. BioCore DPP-IV® provides supplemental enzymes that can help break down gluten.
BioCore DPP-IV® provides supplemental dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity along with other fungal proteases that can increase gluten digestion. Many individuals are concerned about gluten and do what they can to avoid its consumption and its associated discomfort. BioCore DPP-IV® supports digestion of small amounts of gluten that might be inadvertently consumed to help maintain your peace of mind.
