Devigest is more powerful and concentrated than its competitors, just one capsule with meals can ease the digestion of even the most troublesome of foods. Devigest can help reduce food irritations, sensitivities as well as occasional abdominal gas and bloating. Devigest contains a highly potent Peptidase with 500 units of DPP-IV activity per serving. Peptidase breaks down gluten and casein, two digestive irritants. Many formulas today have begun to utilize this amazing enzyme, but rarely is it incorporated in a broad spectrum blend, which leaves many formulas incomplete. Devigest is a complete and broad spectrum formula, making the need for supplementing other digestive enzyme products obsolete.
Devigest also includes Alpha Galactosidase which is the active ingredient in the ever-popular product Beano®. Our bodies lack the enzymes that are responsible for breaking down certain carbohydrates in the small intestine. This causes improperly digested food to enter the large intestine where bacteria then begin to break it down, creating large amounts of gas which can lead to flatulence, abdominal bloating and digestive discomfort. Unlike many other gas medicines, Alpha Galactosidase can help prevent gas before it starts by breaking down the complex carbohydrates found in gassy foods into simpler, more easily digestible sugars.
A similar phenomenon occurs with those that experience digestive distress when comsuming dairy foods. Lactose intolerance is the inability to break down lactose sugars found in all dairy products. People who are lactose intolerant can typically experience stomach bloating, gas, cramps and diarrhea after ingesting dairy products. Symptoms usually appear 30 minutes to 2 hours after eating and vary in each individual. Devigest now contains 4x more lactase, the enzyme needed to break down lactose, than competing products per serving, so those with lactose intolerance can enjoy dairy foods without experiencing digestive distress.
