AOR Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP Zyme) is an enzyme activity required to break down the peptide sequences linked to the exacerbation of conditions such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn's disease; ulcerative colitis) and celiac disease. DPP Zyme is a proprietary formulation of proteases providing a standardized DPP IV activity.
Dipeptidyl peptidase IV is an enzyme that is needed to break down proteins in the gastrointestinal tract. When fragments of foreign proteins are presented to immune cells, an immune response can be activated. When proteins are not cleaved and accumulate in the body, the immune system can overact and develop irregular responses that lead to autoimmune diseases and contribute to chronic inflammation and tissue damage.
When the Immune System Overreacts
DPP IV is required to prevent the immune system from being inappropriately activated and avoid inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, which causes inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease. It also cleaves one of the cellular signaling molecules that has a major role in inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.
DPP IV for a Healthy Immune System
A shortage of DPP IV enzyme activity reduces the body’s ability to metabolize proteins. DPP IV supplementation ensures that protein metabolism is maintained and avoids the activation of the immune system. AOR provides a formulation of proteases that provide standardized DPP IV activity.
