BioCore® DPP IV
- 100% Vegetarian
- Helps Digest Gluten and Cereal Grains*
Gluten Digest, with BioCore® DPP IV (Dipeptidyl peptidase IV) is a digestive enzyme that can be supplemented alone or in combination with other nutritional enzymes to support the digestive process. This unique enzyme specifically breaks apart difficult-to-digest proline-containing peptides, which are generally known to come from dairy products and cereal grains. Gluten Digest also contains amylase and glucoamylase enzymes that assist in the breakdown of carbohydrates. The proteases in Gluten Digest are stable in the acidic environment of the stomach and are 100% vegetarian.*

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:
Used for Amount WhyLow Back Pain
4 to 8 tablets a day of proteolytic enzymes containing trypsin and chymotrypsin, and/or bromelain [3 stars] Supplementing with a combination of the enzymes trypsin and chymotrypsin may improve low back pain.Low Back Pain
4 to 8 tablets a day of proteolytic enzymes containing trypsin and chymotrypsin, and/or bromelain [3 stars] Supplementing with a combination of the enzymes trypsin and chymotrypsin may improve low back pain.Pancreatic Insufficiency Consult a qualified medical practitioner [3 stars] Digestive enzymes are the mainstay of pancreatic insufficiency treatment and have been shown to reduce pain and steatorrhea associated with pancreatitis.Sprains and Strains 4 to 8 tablets a day of proteolytic enzymes containing trypsin, chymotrypsin, and/or bromelain as Proteolytic Enzymes[3 stars] Proteolytic enzymes, including bromelain, may be helpful in healing sprains and strains because they are anti-inflammatory and appear to promote tissue healing.Celiac Disease Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner [2 stars] Some evidence suggests that enzyme supplements may be useful at the beginning of dietary treatment for this disease.Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner [2 stars] Lipase, a pancreatic enzyme, aids in the digestion of fats and may improve digestion in some people.Osteoarthritis 90 mg of bromelain and 48 mg of trypsin, with 100 mg of rutosid, taken in enteric-coated pills three times per day [2 stars] In one study, people with painful osteoarthritis of the knee who received an oral enzyme-flavonoid preparation saw more improvement in pain and joint function than those who took a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID).Tendinitis Several tablets per day of proteolytic enzymes [2 stars] Supplementing with digestive enzymes may reduce the severity of symptoms and speed healing.Acne Rosacea Refer to label instructions [1 star] Digestive enzymes have been reported anecdotally to improve rosacea symptoms.Allergies and Sensitivities and Food Allergies Refer to label instructions [1 star] Proteolytic enzymes may theoretically reduce allergy symptoms by breaking down undigested protein to sizes that are too small to cause allergic reactions.Chronic Candidiasis Refer to label instructions [1 star] Digestive enzymes inhibit the overgrowth of candida and prevent it from becoming established in the small intestine.Crohn's Disease Refer to label instructions [1 star] Supplementing with enzymes might improve the nutrient malabsorption that is often associated with Crohn's disease.Low Back Pain Refer to label instructions [1 star] Several trials have reported reduced pain and swelling, and/or faster healing in people with a variety of conditions who use papain.
Digestive enzymes are complex proteins involved in digestion that stimulate chemical changes in other substances. They work optimally at specific temperature and pH. Digestive enzymes include pancreatic enzymes, plant-derived enzymes, and fungal-derived enzymes. There are three classes of digestive enzymes: proteolytic enzymes needed to digest protein, lipases needed to digest fat, and amylases needed to digest carbohydrates.
