Gluten is the sticky protein found in wheat and other grains, including
oats, rye, and barley. Casein is a protein found in high amounts in cows’
milk and cheese. Lactose is also known as milk sugar and is the main sugar
found in milk and dairy products.
Gluten Relief is specially formulated with a balanced blend of the enzymes
needed for complete digestion of difficult to digest foods, especially
cereal grains and milk products, which contain carbohydrate, protein,
gluten, and casein. Improved digestion of these foods can help ease
digestive complaints and lighten the load on the digestive system, improving
energy levels and vitality, reducing disease, and improving health and
Proteases are digestive enzymes found in the stomach, pancreas, and
intestine. These enzymes are a family of enzymes which break down protein
and support digestive health. Protease enzymes are thought to help reduce
pain and inflammation, including muscle pain, and alleviate symptoms of
allergies. Proteases hydrolyze difficult-to-digest proline-containing
peptides from cereal grains, such as gluten and dairy.
Amylases are salivary and pancreatic enzymes that break down carbohydrates
into simpler sugars.
Glucoamylase is an enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates into maltose and
Cellulase enzymes convert cellulose fibre to a simpler sugar. Cellulose
fibre is poorly digested by humans and has little nutritional value,
although very important for the structure of cell membranes. Many processed
and prepared foods contain cellulose fibre to increase the thickness of
foods and the overall fibre content. Taking an enzyme product containing
cellulase may be necessary for good health.
Lactase is an enzyme produced in the small intestine that is needed to
convert milk sugar (lactose) into simpler sugars that the body can use. Many
people decrease the amount of lactose-containing products they eat or drink
to avoid gastrointestinal symptoms related to lactase deficiency.
Alpha-galactosidase is an enzyme that breaks down certain complex
carbohydrates and helps the body digest the sugar in legumes and many
vegetables. This enzyme helps reduce the gas and bloating commonly seen in
individuals who consume beans and other foods containing complex
