Product Description

Experience the health benefits of improved digestion. Experience Devigest ADS. Devigest still uses the revolutionary 2 stage approach of targeting digestion in both the upper and lower digestive system.

Devigest is more powerful and concentrated than its predecessors. Devigest features a unique Dipeptyl Peptidase DPPIV enzyme that specifically targets gluten and casein.

It has also been enhanced with a super concentrated protease blend that digests a wider array of proteins over a broader range of pH. A higher dose of lactase has been introduced to better assist with the digestion of dairy sugars.

Devigest ADS supplements the individual's own secretions of pancreatic enzymes, allowing for more complete digestion of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

1) Amylase digests carbohydrates.

2) Protease digests proteins.

3) Lipase digests fat.

 

Bromelain

A proteolytic enzyme derived from pineapple. Bromelain attacks the long chain polypeptides of proteins ingested, breaking them down into shorter chain peptides, which are then able to be broken down further by other enzymes.

Protease

A proteolytic enzyme that digests a broad range of proteins. Protease is responsible for digesting the bulk of ingested proteins and is one of the three enzymes found in our body’s natural pancreatic juices. Devigest contains a blend of proteases to broaden the pH range of the product. When present in blood serum, protease plays an important part in supporting circulatory heath.

Dipeptidyl Peptidase

A proteolytic enzyme responsible for completing the digestion of peptides to basic amino acids. Dipeptidyl Peptidase is primarily responsible for the breakdown of gluten peptides which are found in food items made from grains such as wheat or rye.

Alpha Galactosidase

The primary enzyme used in popular gas-relief products, alpha galactosidase is an enzyme responsible for breaking down complex sugars into simple sugars. This allows certain gas-producing foods such as cruciferous vegetables and legumes to become more easily digestible.

Amylase

An enzyme which partially breaks starch down into maltose. Amylase is naturally excreted from the pancreas and saliva.

Lipase

Triggers the breakdown of fat into fatty acids. Lipase is the third enzyme that is found in our body’s natural pancreatic juices along with protease and amylase.

Glucoamylase

Converts starch into sugar like amylase, but is most active in a highly acidic pH. The inclusion of this component allows for many sugars to be broken down prior to exiting the stomach.

Lactase

The enzyme responsible for the hydrolysis of the milk sugar lactose into glucose and galactose.

Cellulase

An enzyme that digests cellulose, or plant fiber. Most animals (including humans) do not produce cellulase naturally and are therefore unable to use most of the energy contained in plant material without supplementation of the enzyme.

Xylanase

An enzyme with the ability to digest artificial food dyes and preservatives, and is usually lacking in other digestive formulas.

Papain

Derived from the papaya, papain hydrolyzes protein peptides into basic amino acids.

Potassium Bicarbonate and Calcium Carbonate

Nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract are absorbed most efficiently when the environment is alkaline (pH over seven). Carbonates and bicarbonates help to alkalize the digestive tract, allowing for optimal absorption of nutrients and can ease the symptoms of indigestion when taken after meals.

Hemicellulase

Breaks down hemicellulose, a type of polysaccharide that is more complex than simple sugar and present along with cellulose in all plant cell walls.
