Proper digestion is a prerequisite for optimal health. Unless digestive physiology is in order, no other self-regulating or self-healing systems function properly. Devigest ADS (Advanced Digestive Support) serves not only in the aiding of the digestive process as a whole, but also therapeutic applications. Too often insufficient digestive enzyme production is overlooked as the culprit of indigestion and other digestive complications. Gas, bloating, incomplete digestion, and abdominal discomfort can play a part in the everyday life of many individuals. Properly digested foods add nutrients to our bodies, provide energy, and provide support to the countless other processes that are vital for proper human function. Supplementing with a high-quality digestive enzyme like Devigest ADS may be the answer to many of these concerns.
Devigest is more powerful and concentrated than its competitors, just one capsule with meals can ease the digestion of even the most troublesome of foods. Devigest can help reduce food irritations, sensitivities as well as occasional abdominal gas and bloating. Devigest contains a highly potent Peptidase with 500 units of DPP-IV activity per serving. Peptidase breaks down gluten and casein, two digestive irritants. Many formulas today have begun to utilize this amazing enzyme, but rarely is it incorporated in a broad spectrum blend, which leaves many formulas incomplete. Devigest is a complete and broad spectrum formula, making the need for supplementing other digestive enzyme products obsolete.
Devigest also includes Alpha Galactosidase which is the active ingredient in the ever-popular product Beano®. Our bodies lack the enzymes that are responsible for breaking down certain carbohydrates in the small intestine. This causes improperly digested food to enter the large intestine where bacteria then begin to break it down, creating large amounts of gas which can lead to flatulence, abdominal bloating and digestive discomfort. Unlike many other gas medicines, Alpha Galactosidase can help prevent gas before it starts by breaking down the complex carbohydrates found in gassy foods into simpler, more easily digestible sugars.
A similar phenomenon occurs with those that experience digestive distress when comsuming dairy foods. Lactose intolerance is the inability to break down lactose sugars found in all dairy products. People who are lactose intolerant can typically experience stomach bloating, gas, cramps and diarrhea after ingesting dairy products. Symptoms usually appear 30 minutes to 2 hours after eating and vary in each individual. Devigest now contains 4x more lactase, the enzyme needed to break down lactose, than competing products per serving, so those with lactose intolerance can enjoy dairy foods without experiencing digestive distress.

Directions: Take Devigest with 8oz of water at the beginning of each meal or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Additional capsules may be taken during periods of occasional discomfort.
Daily Maintenance: 1-2 Capsules per meal.
Increased Support: 4 Capsules per meal.
Warning: Do not take this product without the consent of your physician if you are currently taking anti-coagulants or if you are pregnant or nursing.
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.
Devigest can be used safely with other dietary supplements.
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.
People who suffer from a gluten sensitivity are unable to eat foods containing gluten commonly found in many foods. Gluten proteins are found in the grains of wheat, rye, and barley. In individuals who have sensitivities, gluten proteins trigger a reaction that can cause digestive distress. Symptoms of gluten sensitivities include diarrhea or constipation, abdominal pain, weight loss, malabsorption, chronic fatigue, etc. It is important to note that gluten sensitivity is different from Celiac disease, which can be fatal for those ingesting gluten.
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 is capable of digesting 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.
A proteolytic enzyme responsible for completing the digestion of peptides to basic amino acids. Dipeptidyl Peptidase is primarily responsible for the breakdown of gluten which is 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 for certain foods such as cruciferous vegetables and legumes to be more easily digested.
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.
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.
Nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract are absorbed most efficiently when the environment is alkaline (pH over 7). Bicarbonates help to alkalize the digestive tract, allowing for optimal absorption of nutrients and can also 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.
