Seeking Health Pro-Digestion Intensive is a physician-formulated spectrum digestive enzyme supplement designed to help individuals who have difficulty digesting gluten and casein or have food sensitivities. Pro-Digestion Intensive assists in the breakdown of proteins, fats, complex carbohydrates, sugars and fibers; contains ingredients that interfere with pathogenic bacteria and yeasts. 120 veg caps
An extra-powerful digestive enzyme formula containing nineteen vegetarian digestive enzymes to support optimum digestion and absorption. Provides support for those with difficulty digesting gluten and casien, or those with food sensitivities.
Enzymes play a crucial role in digestion, breaking down food componenets into molecules that can be readily aborbed and assimilated by the body. Cooking and heat processing destroys the enzymes found naturally in raw foods, placing the full burden of digestion on the pancreas and other digestive organs.
Low levels of digestive enzymes are often related to age and lifestyle. The delicate enzymes in food are destroyed by cooking and high heat processing, so the typical “modern” diet of processed foods puts extra strain on the pancreas and other digestive organs to produce the necessary digestive enzymes. We also tend to produce less digestive enzymes in the pancreas as we age. Because of the importance of your digestive health to your immune function, supplementing with digestive enzymes and improving absorption helps promote overall good health.
Symptoms that additional enzyme supplementation may be needed:
Plant-derived enzymes: This vegetarian formula contains enzymes that are active across a very broad pH range, making them effective throughout the entire GI tract.
A comprehensive blend of active enzymes: The broad-spectrum combination of enzymes in Pro-Digestion Intensive work together to maximize the breakdown, absorption, and utilization of macronutrients from a wide spectrum of foods, including proteins and protein peptides, carbohydrates, disaccharides, and sugars, lipids/fats, and vegetable fibers. Special proteases (protein-specific enzymes) are included that have Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) activity to support optimal cleaving of casein and gluten and their exorphin peptides (casomorphin and gluteomorphin). Serratia peptidase, a unique enzyme that helps protect sensitive GI tissues from irritation, and lysozyme, an enzyme that helps break down bacterial and yeast cell walls, are also included.
Hypoallergenic ingredients: This product contains highly purified, filtered enzymes to meet needs of food- sensitive patients. It is free of porcine or other animal-derived enzymes and avoids fruit-derived enzymes (bromelain, papain, kiwi) for maximum tolerance.
Free of milk/casein, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast, and soybeans.
Note: Lysozyme in this product is derived from egg white. Although this is a highly purified material, individuals with known egg white allergy should consult their physician before using this product.

Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

I do recommend Pro-Digestion Intensive capsules for assisting with dairy and gluten intolerance.
You may try taking 1 to 2 capsules with a meal and see how you respond.
There are some people who just should not eat either of these foods.
I also highly recommend adding ProBiota 12 capsules - take 1 capsule after dinner - to help provide beneficial bacteria to your digestive system which thereby helps support healthy digestion and may reduce food intolerances as well.
