What is Doctor's Best Gluten Rescue with Glutalytic? Gluten proteins are extremely difficult to digest and are problematic even for healthy people. Gluten is comprised of gliadin, soluble in water/alcohol, and glutenins, not water soluble in water/alcohol.
Gliadin, a prolamine of gluten, has toxic effects on the intestinal barrier and can cause severe damage to the gut lining, especially for people that have gluten sensitivity. Undigested gliadin can trigger the release of IL-8, part of the Innate Immune System. Gluten proteins can also trigger a protein called zonulin in humans which causes tight junctions to open such that the small intestinal barrier is loosened allowing gluten and other proteins to permeate through the gut wall causing more sever inflammation. This is called "Leaky Gut". Undigested gluten proteins trigger the immune system to attack the inner lining of the small intestine, resulting in varying levels of gluten sensitivity.
Breaking down these proteins can help alleviate the symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity and prevent further damage to the body. Proteases are enzymes that break down proteins, but specific proteases are required to break down toxic proline-rich peptides of gliadin. Research shows that the proline-rich peptides from gluten are the main reason for gluten sensitivity.
How does Doctor's Best Gluten Rescue with Glutalytic? Gluten Rescue with Glutalytic can break down gluten rapidly while traveling through the stomach and upper duodenum. Gluten Rescue with Glutalytic helps break down large unhydrolyzed gluten peptides to amino acids that can be absorbed and used by the body. Gliadin, the major immune eliciting protein fraction in gluten, can be degraded down from gram to milligram quantities before it reaches the small intestine.
Why take Doctor's Best Gluten Rescue with Glutalytic? Gluten Rescue with Glutalytic is uniquely designed to break down gluten proteins faster and more efficiently by attacking both the internal and end peptide bonds, whereas most products that aid in the digestion of gluten only use a singular enzymatic approach.
