- Potent, 20-Enzyme Formula
- Supplies DPP-IV Activity
- For Children or Adults
First of all, what is DPP-IV Activity and why should I care?
LuvByNature Ultra Digestive Support supplies DPP-IV activity - which is specific for the breakdown of casein, gluten and other exorphin peptides.
And, that's a good thing!
You see, incompletely digested peptides from casein (casomorphins) and gluten (gluteomorphins), soy, or yeast may negatively affect central nervous system function in some individuals.
LuvByNature Ultra Digestive Support provides ample amounts of peptidase enzymes that express dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity that is especially effective in breaking down exorphin (opiate-acting) peptides - such as, casein and gluten -
before they can be absorbed.*
How will digestive enzymes help me?
Almost everyone has experienced digestive upset like occasional gas, bloating, indigestion, constipation, or loose stools at one time or another.
As you may know, some of the common causes for digestive issues include:
Bottom line: Consuming digestive enzymes will help to support healthy digestive function and can resolve occasional bloating, flatulence, and gastrointestinal discomfort.
- Eating the wrong kind of foods
- Overeating ... even healthy food
- Feeling stressed out - mentally or emotionally
- Having microbial imbalances
In addition, digestive enzymes help to support the absorption of nutrients and overall health.
Keep in mind, incomplete digestion may unfavorably shift the balance of gut microbiota by allowing fermentation of undigested foodstuffs by gut microorganisms.*
2 chewable tablets at the beginning of each meal or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Caution: If you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition, or taking prescription drugs, consult your healthcare provider before using this product. Keep out of reach of children.
Should I worry about taking too many?
No upper limit has been established for oral enzyme supplementation.
Animal studies indicate that extremely large amounts of enzymes may be ingested without toxicity or adverse reaction. Serving size is based on the amount of food ingested (content and size of a meal) and not specifically by body weight or age.
Are there any contraindications for usage?
Large amounts of proteolytic enzymes should not be taken in the absence of normal gastric mucosa. Do not use if gastritis, peptic ulcer, or heartburn is present.
If pregnant or nursing, consult your healthcare professional prior to use.
This product may not be appropriate for those with known allergies to Aspergillus enzyme proteins, though non-specific mold allergies do not necessarily preclude use of fungal-based enzymes.
Can there be any drug interactions?
Again, it's always best to ask your healthcare provider to receive the best guidance for your particular health concerns. But, the set of enzymes called, carbohydrases may increase
intestinal glucose absorption and may thus interfere with the efficacy of oral hypoglycemic drugs or insulin.
