ProtectZyme™ is a unique combination of digestive support compounds designed to minimize the adverse effects from occasional consumption of gluten, dairy, soy, and egg proteins in individuals who are sensitive to them, as well as to curb the detrimental effects of consuming excessive amounts of starchy foods and sucrose. However, it will not affect the absorption of glucose or fructose.
This product is not intended for those with celiac disease or severe gluten allergies, but rather, for individuals with milder sensitivities and intolerances, who experience unpleasant symptoms after indulging in the above mentioned foods.
ProtectZyme™ is formulated to enhance the digestion of problematic proteins and minimize the effects from starch consumption. It is comprised of a concentrated extract of Cissus quadrangularis, a perennial plant of the grape family, along with a blend of four proteolytic enzymes.
The Cissus quadrangularis extract used in this product works by inhibiting starch breakdown into glucose and the cleavage of sucrose into glucose and fructose. The blend of proteolytic enzymes – aspergillopepsin (from Aspergillus niger), alkaline protease (from Bacillus subtilis), peptidase (from Aspergillus oryzae), and DPPIV – achieves nearly complete degradation of gluten in the stomach and upper GI tract, thus potentially reducing the symptoms associated with gluten exposure in sensitive individuals.
Owing to its effects on facilitating protein digestion and inhibiting breakdown and absorption of starch-derived glucose, ProtectZyme™ may be beneficial for:
Limiting sensitivity reactions to problematic foods
Weight loss/weight management
Blood sugar balance
Minimizing GI distress
Mood enhancement/emotional eating
