AFP Peptizyde® (Advanced Formula Protease) is a combination of three different enzymes that break down protein. These enzymes are isolated and purified from fungal plant sources.
The combination of these specific enzymes allows much more efficient means of quickly and thoroughly breaking down (hydrolyzing) proteins to smaller components.
The enzymes in AFP Peptizyde work only on food proteins, not carbohydrates, fats, or other compounds, and do not interfere with medications or other supplements (unless they are also proteins, which is extremely unlikely). AFP Peptizyde may be used in combination with other enzyme products.
The enzyme dipeptidyl peptidase IV, or DPP IV, is able to break down and inactivate the exorphin peptide casomorphin, from dairy. However, for maximal protein breakdown, DPP IV is not useful alone, and should be combined with other proteases with different and less stringent peptide bond specificity.
