Arthur Andrew Medical Devigest ADS Vegetarian Suitable Not Certified Kosher Description:
A powerful full spectrum digestive enzyme that outperforms the competition. Many digestive enzyme formulas target very specific niches of digestion. Rarely is any one individual only sensitive to one specific type of food. Digestive disturbances or non-allergic food hypersensitivity are normally the result of several complex matrices culminating into intolerances that can be exceedingly complex and difficult to pinpoint. Elimination diet tests add and subtract certain foods, in an effort to find an intolerable ingredient. These tests may uncover severe intolerances to certain foods such as dairy, and are very effective at pinpointing more complex sensitivities to say certain proteins or sugars. Niche enzymes are expensive and may only be partially useful. Devigest, is a broad spectrum digestive enzyme, specifically developed to support normal digestion for everyone.* Our scientists carefully dissected the most common types of digestive intolerances including: proteins, carbohydrates, fats, dairy, gluten, yeast, and fructose. We focused our efforts to produce the first full spectrum digestive formula. No matter what your digestive complaint, Devigest may be the only digestive enzyme formula that’s suitable for everyone in your family.
It is important to note that lactose intolerance is different than a dairy allergy. Lactose intolerance is the inability to metabolize the milk sugar known as lactose. This occurs due to a lack of lactase in the digestive system, which is the enzyme responsible for breaking down lactose. Studies have shown that the majority of adults experience a decrease in lactase activity as they age. When the body is deficient in lactase, the lactose passes directly into the colon intact, allowing for fermentation to occur. The fermentation process produces gases which can cause abdominal symptoms such as bloating, gas, cramps and diarrhea. Symptoms usually appear 30 minutes to 2 hours after eating and vary by individual and the type/quantity of dairy foods consumed. Devigest contains a highly potent lactase enzyme to assist the body with digesting foods high in lactose. When taking lactase-digesting enzymes like those in Devigest, you should take them with the first bite of the dairy product for maximum efficacy. Taking them too soon or too far after consuming dairy reduces lactase’s ability to interact with the lactose within the digestive tract.
