Eases occasional digestive complaints from many hard to digest foods such as gluten, casein, and lactose.
How Devigest Works
Dairy products, bread, and processed foods are all products found in the average kitchen. And if you’re suffering from digestive problems, these items may be the culprit. Gas, bloating, incomplete digestion, and abdominal discomfort can play a part in the everyday life of many individuals. It’s hard to enjoy a meal with family or friends knowing you’ll probably have to deal with an achy gut later on.
Without question, proper digestion is a prerequisite for optimal health. Unless your digestive health is in order, no other self-regulating or self-healing systems function properly. Supplementing with a high-quality digestive enzyme may be the answer to your digestion-related concerns.
Properly digested foods do the following:
- Add nutrients to our bodies
- Provide energy
- Support countless other processes that are vital for proper human function
Directions: Take Devigest with eight ounces of water at the beginning of each meal or as directed by your healthcare provider. Additional capsules can be taken during periods of occasional discomfort.
Daily Maintenance: One to two capsules per meal.
Increased Support: Four capsules per meal.
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.
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.
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.
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.
An enzyme which partially breaks starch down into maltose. Amylase is naturally excreted from the pancreas and saliva.
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.
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.
The enzyme responsible for the hydrolysis of the milk sugar lactose into glucose and galactose.
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.
An enzyme with the ability to digest artificial food dyes and preservatives, and is usually lacking in other digestive formulas.
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.
Breaks down hemicellulose, a type of polysaccharide that is more complex than simple sugar and present along with cellulose in all plant cell walls.
What is Devigest?
Devigest is a broad-spectrum digestive enzyme blend that helps restore the body’s digestive enzymes, support balanced digestion, and complete food assimilation. Devigest contains an extremely potent blend of enzymes for breaking down digestive irritants such as gluten and dairy products.
How does Devigest differ from its competitors?
Devigest includes a highly potent peptidase with 500 units of DPP-IV activity per serving. It also contains alpha galactosidase (the active ingredient in the product Beano®) as well as enzymes such as lactase, acid-stable protease, and glucoamylase. Devigest was formulated to be effective for any type of diet, and provide even more relief for those with digestive sensitivities to gluten, casein, dairy, and much more. Those with a diet high in gassy foods such as beans and leafy vegetables will benefit greatly from the addition of alpha galactosidase.
What are “digestive enzymes”?
Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts in biochemical reactions. Every enzyme has a specific reactant known as a substrate, which can be thought of like a lock and key. Devigest contains several enzymes or “keys” that can “unlock” (or break down) many of the food types that are common in our diet. The enzymes in Devigest are specific to the digestion of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Additional enzymes have been added to help digest specific digestive irritants like lactose and gluten.
How do I know if I need digestive enzymes?
A healthy body produces enzymes in sufficient quantities to ensure proper digestion of most foods. However, some people do not produce sufficient quantities of digestive enzymes, and often get the common symptoms of indigestion such as gas, bloating, and abdominal discomfort. These symptoms are common indicators that one may benefit from supplementation of a digestive enzyme. However, virtually everyone, even those who are asymptomatic, could benefit from the use of digestive enzymes.
Why should I choose Devigest?
Devigest is the best choice for maintaining optimal digestion. Unless digestive physiology is in order, no other self-regulating or self-healing systems are able to perform in optimal states, including immune function. Gas, bloating and abdominal discomfort can play a part in the everyday life of many individuals. Supplementing with a high-quality digestive enzyme may be the answer to many of these problems.
How does Devigest work?
Devigest is an enzyme blend that allows for more complete digestion of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Unlike Devigest, many digestive enzyme blends are incomplete as they lack the ability to break down dairy products, gluten, legumes, and food additives. Devigest also includes an alkalization formula for optimal enzymatic activity.
When is the best time to take Devigest?
For best results, take Devigest immediately prior to eating, or with your first bite. Devigest can also be taken after meals to alleviate digestive complications such as gas, bloating, and indigestion.
Can I take Devigest with other supplements?
Devigest can be used safely with other dietary supplements.
How long does it take for Devigest to work?
The effects of digestive enzymes can be felt fairly quickly when taken after meals for symptoms of indigestion such as bloating or abdominal discomfort. When taking the product with meals containing foods that typically cause indigestion, the product should help alleviate the onset of these symptoms by assisting the body's digestive process.
Is Devigest safe?
Yes. There have been no reports of any serious or adverse side effects from taking digestive enzymes such as Devigest. Clinical studies have shown that even extremely large doses of these enzymes are not toxic.
Is Devigest Kosher?
The formula is Kosher, and a copy of the certification is available by request
Is Devigest vegetarian?
The Devigest formula is vegetarian in accordance with the guidelines of the AMERICAN VEGETARIAN ASSOCIATION.
Is Devigest non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)?
Yes, Devigest is non-GMO. The microorganisms used to produce this enzyme product are not genetically engineered organisms as defined by the NATIONAL ORGANIC STANDARDS BOARD. Genetically engineered is defined as follows: Made with techniques that alter the molecular or cellular biology of an organism by means that are not possible under natural conditions or processes. Genetic engineering includes recombinant DNA, cell fusion, micro-and macro-encapsulation, gene deletion and doubling, introducing a foreign gene, and changing the position of genes. It shall not include breeding, conjugation, fermentation, hybridization, in-vitro fertilization, and tissue culture.
Further testing is also conducted to determine whether any common GMO material is present in the product. A copy of the lab analysis can be DOWNLOADED HERE.
