Peptidase is a digestive enzyme specific for digesting peptides—chains of amino acids found in protein-rich foods. Peptidase also has what's known as DPPIV activity. This allows it to work on the special peptide compound found in wheat, barley, and rye known as gluten, as well as the casein peptide found in dairy products. DPPIV can help ensure optimal tolerance to hidden sources of gluten and casein for those who are sensitive.
Natural digestive enzymes are remarkably beneficial biological catalysts. They help us properly digest all the food we eat to liberate the nutrients needed for our optimal health and well-being. Different enzymes are needed to help us digest each of the diverse types of food compounds. Think of it as locks and keys—you need the right keys (enzymes) to fit into the dozens of different locks (food compounds that we eat every day) to open the doors for optimal, healthy digestion.
Our special peptidase digestive enzyme is naturally grown and fermented with a high potency of 250 DPPIV/10,000 HUT per capsule. All of our digestive enzymes are non-GMO, kosher, and highly purified. They are also free from preservatives and chemicals, and 100% vegetarian with absolutely no animal-based ingredients.
