Vegetarian enzymes with high DPP-IV activity hydrolyze casein, gluten, and other small peptides.
A proprietary blend of microbial enzymes, SerenAid® is specifically formulated to assist in breaking down a broad range of plant and animal proteins, including casein (milk and dairy products), gluten (wheat, rye, oats, barley, and other grains), and soy proteins. The inclusion of Exorphinase® differentiates SerenAid® from other digestive enzyme formulas. This proprietary, high-activity enzyme blend of peptidase and protease with dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity can assist in hydrolyzing small protein peptides, including casomorphins and gluteomorphins that can adversely affect the central nervous system in some individuals. The enzymes in this formulation are pH-stable, demonstrating activity over a wide range of pH conditions (pH of 2 to 12).
SerenAid® Attributes • First plant-based enzyme formulation to offer dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity formulated to support the unique proteolytic needs of children on the spectrum
• High serine proteinase DPP-IV activity, to cleave the post-proline bonds and prolyl bonds near the N-terminus of proteins and peptides
• Post-proline and prolyl bond cleavage supports proteolysis of casein, gluten, and their exorphin peptides, casomorphins and gluteomorphins
• Proprietary, patented*** combination of peptidase and protease enzymes with DPP-IV activity to support hydrolysis of exorphin (opiate-acting) peptides
