Gluten Manager™ is uniquely designed digestive enzyme that includes both endopeptidase and exopeptidase activity in the form of Tolerase® G and dipeptidyl-peptidase IV (also known as DPP-IV). The combination of activity causes degradation at both the ends as well as the middle of the gluten molecule.*1-4 This makes a small gluten molecule proline peptide for easier and more complete digestion.
Avoiding dietary gluten can be a challenge. In a study of individuals with very high sensitivity to gluten that were following a gluten free diet, 66% suspected unintended exposure.7 Gluten can cause immunological and opioid-like effects on the nervous system of sensitive individuals. As gluten is a protein, it is typically broken down into small amino acids. However, gluten is comprised of gliadin which is difficult to digest due to the long proline peptides.
Gluten Manager has dual mechanism-of-action digestive enzymes that hydrolyzes gluten at both the middle and end of the gluten molecule through the use of prolyl-endopeptidase (Tolerase® G) and dipeptidyl-peptidase IV enzyme activity (DPP-IV)†. The use of both digestive enzymes degrades the proline peptide into smaller chains that can be more completely digested.
