Helps to control the occasional distress that comes with enjoying FODMAP-containing foods for those with sensitivities.
If you suffer from occasional bouts of bloating, belching, discomfort or even diarrhea following meals, you may be sensitive to common sugars that easily ferment in the digestive system. These sugars are referred to as FODMAPs. The simplest solution would be to eliminate these foods from your diet, but any type of elimination diet can be difficult. In fact, completely eliminating FODMAPs is likely impossible, or at least improbable to accomplish while maintaining a well-balanced diet. FODMAPs are typically found in some of the most nutritious fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes. Fortunately, FODMAP DPE was created to eliminate the worry of whether or not a meal may result in distress.
FODMAP DPE (Digestive Probiotics and Enzymes) is a blend of specialized enzymes and spore-forming probiotics that assists the body in properly digesting highly fermentable foods, commonly known as FODMAPs.
What are FODMAPs?
FODMAPs are a group of short-chain carbohydrates known as fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols and are frequently linked to digestive problems such as bloating, belching, flatulence, and abdominal discomfort. Common High FODMAP Foods
Most people experience these digestive issues because FODMAP carbohydrates are poorly digested or remain undigested as they pass through the digestive system. Eventually these undigested foods come into contact with gut bacteria where they undergo fermentation, and produce gas that causes the slew of common symptoms associated with FODMAP foods.
Who Can Benefit from FODMAP DPE?
The FODMAP Intolerant
You have already identified and eliminated high-FODMAP foods.. However, avoiding problematic FODMAPs is difficult when dining out, and sometimes even when preparing meals at home. You want to be able to enjoy eating, without the worry that you may be exposed to foods that may upset your digestion.
- Incorporate a broader range of foods into the diet
- Reduce occasional gas & bloating
- Reduce food anxiety and enjoy eating again
You love your plant-based diet but some of these densely nutritious foods do not always love you back. FODMAP DPE can help digest fruits, vegetables and legumes more completely. This will allow you to release and absorb more nutrients, while preventing uncomfortable and embarrassing gas.
- Digest & unlock more nutrients
- Reduce occasional gas & bloating
- Enjoy a broader variety of FODMAPs
You live to eat not eat to live, but certain foods you just can’t tolerate without obnoxious side effects. Whether you travel frequently or enjoy eating out, sometimes the best tasting meal just doesn’t sit right. Taking FODMAP DPE before each meal can prevent gas, bloating and distress. Enjoy more of the foods you love, and rest easily knowing you won’t be uncomfortable afterwards.
- Savor a broader range of foods
- Reduce occasional gas & bloating
- Reduce food anxiety and enjoy adventurous eating
Do you already know that you have a FODMAP sensitivity? People who suffer from FODMAP sensitivity are unable to eat certain foods containing either a specific sugar/carbohydrate or a number of them without experiencing gastric distress.
Similar to how those suffering from lactose (a common FODMAP) intolerance can enjoy limited levels of dairy by taking the lactase enzyme , those with FODMAP sensitivities can greatly benefit from the addition of a potent digestive enzyme such as FODMAP DPE.
Those with severe or even moderate FODMAP sensitivities usually prepare meals at home instead of going out to prevent the risk of accidentally ingesting high-FODMAP foods such as garlic and onion. Unfortunately, avoiding all high-FODMAP foods is nearly impossible, especially when dining out. This makes digestive enzymes such as FODMAP DPE a vital partner in protecting yourself from discomfort due to an accidental exposure to FODMAPs.
Forget the worry, get FODMAP DPE today and enjoy eating again.
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. This enzyme is important for Oligosaccharides, the “O” in FODMAPs.
An enzyme which partially breaks starch down into maltose. Amylase is naturally excreted from the pancreas and saliva. This enzyme is important for Monosaccharides, the “M” in FODMAPs.
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. This enzyme is important for Monosaccharides, the “M” in FODMAPs.
The enzyme responsible for the hydrolysis of the milk sugar lactose into glucose and galactose. This enzyme is important for disaccharides, the “D” in FODMAPs.
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 the polysaccharide xylan into xylose, which is a primary component of plant cell walls. There is some evidence that xylanase can help support the breakdown of certain artificial sweeteners and preservatives.
Breaks down hemicellulose, a type of polysaccharide that is more complex than simple sugar and present along with cellulose in all plant cell walls.
Breaks down pectin which is a robust component of plant cell walls. Pectin itself is not a FODMAP, but it is found in many high-FODMAP foods and is fermentable. This enzyme helps break down fermentable foods, the “F” that may not otherwise be classified as high-FODMAP foods.
Breaks down starch into smaller sugar molecules known as maltose and glucose. This enzyme helps support the digestion of both mono and disaccharides, the “D” and “M” of FODMAP.
Breaks down maltose into glucose, which is required for the body to be able to utilize the sugar as energy. This enzyme is important for Disaccharides, the “D” in FODMAPs.
Also known as sucrase, is an enzyme that breaks down sucrose (a disaccharide) into its glucose and fructose building blocks. This enzyme is important for Disaccharides, the “D” in FODMAPs.
Breaks down glycosidic bonds, which is essentially a bond that holds a molecule of sugar to a molecule of another carbohydrate. This enzyme is important for Disaccharides, the “D” in FODMAPs.
FODMAP Probiotic Blend
A blend of two powerful spore-based probiotics that can assist in balancing and restoring a healthy microbiome. Although there aren’t any digestive enzymes that directly break down polyols, the “P” in FODMAPs which are primainly contained in “Sugar Free” products, many FODMAP sufferers have gut microbiome imbalances that may contribute to Polyol intolerance. The combination of Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus clausii can help restore gut balance and support regularity by protecting against occasional constipation and diarrhea.
What is FODMAP DPE?
FODMAP DPE is a combination of probiotics and enzymes formulated to assist those with sensitivities to specific carbohydrates that easily ferment causing digestive distress. These foods are classified as FODMAPs.
How does FODMAP DPE differ from other enzyme products?
FODMAP DPE was formulated with the specific purpose of breaking down fermentable carbohydrates, while also restoring the gut microbiome. This entire formula is geared towards these troublesome foods and does not break down protein or fat.
Is FODMAP DPE helpful for gluten sensitivity?
The answer to this question really is “it depends”. Wheat is one of the most troublesome FODMAP foods, however it is only the carbohydrates found in wheat that are classified as FODMAPs. Gluten is a protein in wheat, and will not be digested by the enzymes within FODMAP DPE. We have found that many people whom suffer from gluten sensitivity are also intolerant to the carbohydrates found in wheat. If gluten is your sole issue, we recommend Devigest, but if you believe that you may also struggle with the FODMAP components within wheat, then we would suggest trying both Devigest and FODMAP DPE with wheat containing meals.
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. FODMAP DPE 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 FODMAP DPE are specific to the digestion of specific carbohydrates/sugars found in high-FODMAP foods.
How do I know if digestive enzymes will help me?
While certain individuals with severe intolerances may not benefit from the use of digestive enzymes, a large percentage of those with FODMAP sensitivities will experience relief from common digestive complaints. If you have ever undergone an elimination diet and found specific foods that tend to create gastrointestinal distress, adding FODMAP DPE may allow you to enjoy those foods once again.
How does FODMAP DPE work?
FODMAP DPE is an enzyme blend that allows for more complete digestion and less digestive fermentation of specific carbohydrates known as FODMAPs (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols).
When is the best time to take FODMAP DPE?
Take FODMAP DPE immediately prior to eating, or with your first bite. FODMAP DPE can also be taken after meals to alleviate digestive complications such as occasional gas, bloating, and indigestion specific to FODMAP foods.
Can I take FODMAP DPE with other supplements?
FODMAP DPE can be used safely with all other dietary supplements.
How long does it take for FODMAP DPE to work?
When taking the product with troublesome foods, the product should immediately help alleviate the onset of symptoms.
Is FODMAP DPE Kosher?
The formula is Kosher, and a copy of the certification is available by request.
Is FODMAP DPE vegetarian or vegan?
The FODMAP DPE formula is vegan in accordance with the guidelines of the AMERICAN VEGETARIAN ASSOCIATION.
Is FODMAP DPE non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)?
Yes, FODMAP DPE is non-GMO. The ingredients contained in and used to produce this formula are not genetically engineered organisms according to the NATIONAL ORGANIC STANDARDS BOARD.
