Similase® GFCF is specifically formulated to defend against hidden gluten.* Gluten and casein are found where you'd never expect them - salad dressings, cold cuts - even toothpaste! Similase® GFCF features DPP IV (dipeptidyl peptidase) activity, from a protease enzyme specific to digestion of gluten and casein.* Similase® GFCF also includes a complete range of digestive enzymes : Competing products only tackle gluten - Similase® GFCF helps you digest other proteins, fats and carbohydrates as well.*
A broad spectrum plant enzyme formula to aid digestion & to promote delivery of nutrients to your bloodstream & cells. Similase contains no animal products & is primarily derived from Aspergillus oryzae which is used in the fermentation of soy sauce, tamari, miso & other food products. Poorly digested food contributes to symptoms of indigestion, other gastrointestinal symptoms, malabsorption, inflammation, food sensitivities, & chronic disease.*
Unlike many other enzymes, Similase works in a wide ranging pH of 2-12. It contains the enzymes needed to digest carbohydrates/starches, fats, fibers, milk sugars (lactose), sugar (sucrose) & grain sugar (maltose). Similase also contains a variety of acidophilus & bifidus species for the replacement of normal healthy gut flora.*
In general all persons will benefit from the use of multiple digestive enzyme formulas with meals. Plant enzymes help to prevent disorders caused by impaired digestion and/or enzyme depleted diets.*
We require enzymes for every bodily function. They are catalysts that facilitate all biochemical reactions. Without enzyme activity, life stops. Enzymes are at the core of virtually all metabolic processes occurring in our body's 60 trillion cells. Natural raw unprocessed foods contain enzymes. Cooked, canned, frozen, dried, stored, preserved, processed foods have few enzymes left.*
Your own enzyme production decreases throughout life with the aging process & the depleted enzymes further aging. Plant enzyme supplements can correct digestive problems which cause & aggravate chronic illness & decrease longevity.*
Intestinal toxemia results from incompletely digested enzyme-depleted foods, improper diet, or intestinal dysfunction. Toxic chemicals are produced in the intestines by bacterial fermentation & putrefaction. The toxins are absorbed into your blood stream & lymphatic system. If your liver isn't able to adequately detoxify them, these chemicals may produce symptoms & pathological changes in tissues.*
Intestinal toxemia may be manifested by fatigue, nervousness, gastrointestinal symptoms, recurrent infections, skin manifestations, hormone disturbances, headaches, arthritis, sciatica, low back pain, allergies & upper respiratory disorders. Can be diagnosed by measuring urinary Indican, Phenol & Skatol levels.*
May Help with:
Contains no animal products.*
Do not use for gastritis, or gastric or duodenal ulcer.
Protease enzymes can irritate pre-existing inflammation of the stomach & duodenum manifested as heartburn, indigestion, stomach pain or antacid use. Some persons have gastritis & are not aware of it & should only use the Gastric Complex. Healing reactions may occur occasionally with plant enzyme usage. This is a temporary few days worsening of symptoms before improvement. Symptoms rarely become severe enough to stop usage & may even be viewed as a sign that the approach is working. However, as with any products, plant enzyme formulas should be discontinued if there are any significant adverse effects.*
