Product Notes:

Rejuvenate Your Life

A unique blend of digestive enzymes which not only help break down the proteins in gluten-containing foods or drinks, but also the proteins in milk and dairy products, Intensive Strength ReliefZyme is designed for those occasions when someone with a non-celiac gluten sensitivity either cannot be sure of what you are eating or are put into a position where you realize it may not agree with you but eat it anyway.

People who know they are gluten intolerant realize the best way to manage that condition, of course, is to avoid the foods which contain it. But even if you do your best to avoid things obviously made with wheat, barley, spelt, or rye, that's not always possible, especially since it's used as a thickening agent in so many sauces and soups, and since there can also be cross-contamination in the transportation, production, or packaging of other seemingly gluten-free ingredients or foods (such as oats). In addition, there may be certain settings where you would prefer not to offend a host or have to make a fuss or explain to your fellow diners why you cannot partake in a certain meal or dish.

Either way, taking Intensive Strength Relief-Zyme with a meal can help you avoid adverse effects and fully digest the meal as normal, despite your sensitivities. In addition to targeting the proteins implicit in gluten, its blend of enzymes also tackle milk proteins such as casein, whey and lactoglobulins. That's because lactose intolerance often becomes a secondary effect of gluten intolerance, because the same tiny parts of the anatomy within our intestines that absorb the nutrients (called the villi) which get atrophied or even flattened by an inability to fully break down the proteins in gluten also have the lactase enzyme which breaks down the lactose in dairy products.
