Enzyme Science™, the Practitioner Division of Enzymedica® to launch IDENTIFY™, a 14-day Food Intolerance Identification Program
On January 15, 2013 Enzyme Science, the practitioner division of Enzymedica, Inc., announced the launch of Identify™, a food intolerance identification program. The Identify kit offers a 14-day diet and enzyme supplementation program to help identify common food intolerances including dairy, wheat, beans and fibrous vegetables.*
“Offered exclusively through health care practitioners, the Identify program walks participants through an elimination diet, which includes individual wheat/gluten, dairy, bean & raw vegetable challenges,” shares Scott Cloud, Executive VP of Enzyme Science. “The two-week kit is designed to help participants understand which foods may be causing dietary sensitivity, and provides instructions for using targeted digestive enzyme supplements to address these intolerances.”*
When the body fails to produce sufficient digestive enzymes, especially enzymes that break down proteins, it becomes more likely to develop digestive intolerances to the foods being eaten. Individuals experiencing food intolerance may be presented with a wide range of occasional symptoms from constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, or an imbalance of probiotics.
“The most common triggers of food intolerance include gluten from wheat and other cereal grains, lactose from dairy products, and fiber from vegetables and beans,” explains Dr. Walter Crinnion1, a naturopathic doctor, and director of Environmental Medicine at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. “The foods we consume frequently (at least 3 times a week or more), are also often triggers.”
While reducing or eliminating trigger foods can be helpful, dietary modification in combination with enzyme supplementation provides peace-of-mind and complete spectrum digestive support.*
