enzymes should be compared...first, we must
understand what makes a great digestive enzyme formulation. Since 95% of the food
we eat is protein, carbohydrates and fats a great formulation will be well
rounded in protease (to digest protein), amylase (to digest carbohydrates) and
lipase (to digest fats).
Take the digestive
enzyme lipase for
example: 500 LU of lipase will break down approximately 4 grams of fat. “The
Health Nuts Ultimate Enzymes” has 5000 LU of lipase and can help break down
40 grams of fat. Two capsules can help break down 80 grams of fat. Having a
digestive enzyme that is capable of helping digest the food we are eating is
most desirable and will give you more benefits. Companies with low amounts of
lipase aren’t addressing the problems people have with undigested fats.
# 1 shows many different digestive enzymes products
from Network Marketing companies and digestive enzymes from some health food stores. Look
closely at the amount of protease, amylase and lipase in each
The last column shows what it would cost you to buy 270
capsules. The companies listed have their digestive enzymes labeled in the FCC (Food
Chemical Codex). This labeling certifies
that the enzymes have been thoroughly tested for
activity and potency. Potency is expressed in units of activity - not by weight.
The units of activity are based on the Food Chemical Codex, set forth by the
National Academy of Sciences and accepted by the American food industry. When
you review the labeling on a digestive enzymes bottle, search
for listings as HUT for Protease, SKB or DU for Amylase and LU or FIP for lipase. FCC labeling example: If Product # 1 has 15,000
HUT of Protease and product # 2 has 45,000 HUT of Protease. Product #2 can break
down 3 times more protein than product # 1...and this fact is what makes it easy
to compare digestive enzyme formulations.
# 2 -
How much digestive
help you’re getting for your dollar?
These numbers are not made up...they are real. Example:
Royal Body Care™
has 50 LU of lipase in their formulation. For you to get the
same 1,350,000 LU (activity units) of lipase that’s in 270 capsules of “The
Health Nuts Ultimate Enzymes”, you would have to buy $7,800.00 of their
product to equal the same amount of lipase activity in a $45.00 bottle of
enzymes from “The Health Nuts.” The last column is the average cost of when
adding up the three enzyme columns and dividing by 3. Most enzyme formulations
are very low on lipase and lipase is the enzyme that helps digest fat. Part of
the reason why people are overweight is because the fat that is being consumed
is not being fully broken down properly. Undigested fat can easily be stored. Most
people that are overweight have low supplies of lipase in their body.
