Odorless and Tasteless Version of Original Peptizyde™
Safe, Non-Toxic Alternative or Supplement to GFCF Diet
Appetite may increase as well as showing more interest in other types of foods. AFP Peptizyde™ may allow for re-introduction of dairy and wheat products to the diet without abnormal behaviors occurring. Benefits from AFP Peptizyde™ do vary with each individual and may be affected by other supplements and diet. Other supplements, especially vitamin and minerals, may be decreased in amount or frequency of dosing as more nutrition is derived from diet with enzymes.
It is recommended for high protein diets and athletic training; and dosing may be increased for those meals that are higher in meat protein.
Using AFP Peptizyde™ as an Alternative or Supplement to the GFCF Diet
The procedure recommended by most parents who have successfully abandoned the GFCF diet using AFP Peptizyde™ is to use the enzymes while maintaining the diet for a period of at least 2 months. When challenging with foods known to be a problem, use small portions initially with 1 or 2 capsules of AFP Peptizyde™. The intention is to provide more than enough AFP Peptizyde™ to counter the effects of casein/gluten. If the challenge was successful, increasing the amount of food given may be attempted, keeping in mind that more AFP Peptizyde™ may be necessary to counter the increased size of the food challenge. For occasional use, up to 4 capsules may be given for infractions, any more than that will probably not provide any additional benefit.
Contraindications for Enzyme Supplementation
These enzymes should NOT be used under the following circumstances: active stomach or duodenal ulcers, severe bowel inflammation (characterized by blood in stools), hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, or within a week of scheduled surgery. This product may not be appropriate for those with known allergies to Aspergillus enzyme proteins or papaya, though non-specific mold allergies do not necessarily preclude use of fungal enzymes. Consult your medical doctor for further advice, and err on the side of caution. Those with known anaphylactic allergic reactions to fungal proteins should NOT ingest fungal-derived enzymes.
No upper limit has been established for enzyme dosing, and animal studies found no toxicity at dosing as high as 2000 milligrams per kilogram of body weight per day for 90 days. Most find using 1 to 2 capsules per meal is adequate, and most likely no further benefits will occur with higher dosing, though as much as 4 capsules may be given for the infrequent and large food challenges. Maximum consistent dosing per day is recommended to be no more than 9 capsules per day.
For those using Peptizyde™ successfully, there is no need to change to AFP Peptizyde™. AFP Peptizyde™ was designed for those who could not tolerate the original Peptizyde™ formulation.
