Many ailments and their symptoms can be traced directly to something in our diet. It is not normal to suffer from low-grade pain, skin disorders, bloating, indigestion, low energy, brain fog, joint pain or any other symptoms that people “live with”.

It is only recently that awareness is being raised about the role that gluten may play in causing these and other symptoms. But it is not just gluten. There are other “bad actors” in our diet that, when combined with less-than-ideal eating habits and our “modern” food supply, create a perfect storm of discomfort or disease.

Most of us reach for antacid, a dairy pill, a gas pill, an anti-inflammatory or a pharmaceutical. We treat the symptom and keep going.

The creation of DigestShield® is the result of the personal experience that Steve and Sheridan Nice, co-founders of Shield Nutraceuticals, had with joint pain and its link to gluten. An honest quest for answers started with research into the sudden rise of gluten sensitivity and lead to awareness of how dramatically certain foods can affect us.

Steve and Sheridan reached out for expert advice and found Dr. Audrey Depelteau, Director of the local university innovation lab. She in turn introduced them to a PhD, Nutritional Biochemist (Andy Clark) and a PhD, Dissolution Chemist (Chuck Collins) who eventually created DigestShield®.

They spent two years developing a powerful and unique dietary supplement that addresses problems associated with digestion of Gluten, Casein, Dairy, Fiber, Carbohydrates Fat and Protein. DigestShield® is a proprietary blend of Enzymes, Prebiotics and Probiotics that work synergistically like no other product on the market.

Are they geniuses? No, but they did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express.

DigestShield® works.
