You Aren't What You Eat! You Are What You Can Absorb and Enjoy!

Remember when you could eat anything anytime you wanted?

Don't Worry, You're Not Alone. Many people of all ages experience digestive discomfort. Don't miss out on enjoying a tasty meal with family and friends again. You don't have to start a meal worried that you’re going to pay the price for eating it after you get done. Luckily, there's plenty you can do to improve and boost your overall digestive health the natural way.

We want you to have healthy dietary habits such as drinking enough water, eating plenty of fiber, fruits and vegetables and so on. Yet even with the healthiest dietary habits some people need a little extra help. It takes a healthy digestive system to properly digest and absorb your food no matter how fresh and healthy the food is.

Why Digestive Enzymes are Important


Enzymes are what your body naturally uses to digest the food you eat. There are TWO ways your digestive system receives the enzymes you need. The first way is that the enzymes are naturally in the foods you eat or secondly, they are produced by your digestive organs. Chances are you may need a little help in getting the enzymes your body needs.

WHY? - 2 Main Reasons

First, researchers have discovered that cooking or processing food over 118 degrees fahrenheit, kills virtually all digestive enzymes that were naturally in it. Second, as we age our bodies ability to produce enzymes slowly diminishes. These two factors can put you at risk for a variety of health imbalances.

To compensate for these two factors your body must work overtime to produce enzymes. If you’ve ever felt sluggish after a meal, it’s possibly because your body is working overtime to digest the food that you have just consumed.


When your body works overtime to properly digest your food, it doesn’t have as much energy to devote to other functions, such as immune defense and degenerative diseases. Don’t let your health suffer because your body is compensating for enzyme deficient food. Simply replace some of the enzymes by taking an enzyme supplement with your meal. When food is properly digested, fewer digestive imbalances occur.

Enzymes are the natural workforce of the body and your digestive system is at the root of your overall health. Supplementing with enzymes helps compensate for enzyme deficient foods. By properly digesting your food you’ll get more nutrition out of your food, and allow your digestive organs to spend more time on keeping your body healthy and less time on digestion. Digestive enzymes are crucial for both healthy and unhealthy diets.

Many medications merely mask digestive symptoms without addressing any possible underlying issues. Consider digestive enzyme supplements - the natural solution for digestive health.

  • Feel tired after a meal?
  • Feel bloated after a meal?

Natural Digestive Enzymes

Once you know why digestive enzymes are important, it’s equally important to know how to find a high quality product. Allegany Nutrition utilizes only natural plant-derived enzymes which enables the enzymes to work in a wider pH range than other forms of digestive enzymes such as animal derived.

A product that can function in a wide pH range is important because the pH in the lower stomach can reach as low as1.5 and the pH in the small intestine can reach as high as 8. It is also important that a digestive enzyme supplement contain Ionic Trace Minerals. Why? Because, ionic trace minerals act like cofactors to increase the utilization of digestive enzymes.

Our enzymes are designed to improve digestion of foods whether cooked, processed or natural. The HP Series digestive enzymes are a full spectrum high potency formulation capable of aiding in the digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, sugars, fibers, and dairy products. Our enzymes are produced in an Organically Certified facility that is FDA inspected and contains no fillers, yeast, dairy, wheat, soy, or corn and is free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. We use the highest quality ingredients to produce superior results the natural way.

Here are a few common reasons that can diminish your enzyme reservoir.
  • The aging process - as we age our enzyme producing capabilities may not be as robust as they once were.
  • Food additives and preservatives.
  • Years of eating cooked and processed food that is enzyme deficient.
  • Incorrect proportions of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
  • Inadequate vitamin and mineral intake.
  • Poor eating habits such as eating when stressed, not thoroughly chewing food, eating too quickly.

You didn't get this way overnight. It's gonna take commitment to get better.

How to take Digestive Enzymes

pasta & garlic bread

The best time to take digestive enzymes is first thing when you sit down to eat. Digestive enzymes can be taken during the meal, but it is best if they take them before. If you forget to take them before or during the meal you can still take them after the meal, they will not go to waste.

Digestive Enzymes can also be taken on an empty stomach. The reason for doing this is to help eliminate undigested food throughout digestive system. Undigested food can rot and ferment which can start polluting the blood stream with harmful toxins.

Below is what each company's capsule contains for the enzymes that are listed on the chart, their are of course other enzymes in our product as well as the other company's.

Note DU's and SKB's are equivalent. DU's are the newest terminology used by the FCC. Also note that when measuring Lipase activity that each FIP unit is up to 5 to 10 times more potent than when measuring Lipase activity in LU. If you would like another product added send us an empty bottle and the Retail Cost and we will add it to this chart.

How to compare different companies Digestive Enzymes:

Our digestive enzyme formulations are listed in units of activity. The potency of a digestive enzyme product is determined by the units of activity. The units of activity express the strength of the enzymes in the formulation. Another way to say this is that the more units of activity in a formulation, the more food it is capable of digesting.

Quantum Pic

Units of activity are based on the Food Chemical Codex (FCC), Academy of Sciences and accepted by the American Food Industry. For example, the amount of Protease in our HP270V is 150,000 HUT. This means that each capsule has 150,000 units of activity. Using these units of activity to compare different digestive enzymes is crucial. The units of activity in a product are what counts, not the number of milligrams or another measuring system. What’s important is the amount of food the product can digest. When comparing our product with others, and they don’t use the Food Chemical Codex (FCC), it’s almost impossible to compare the two products. So when using other products that don’t use the Food Chemical Codex, ask them what is the activity level equivalent to the Food Chemical Codex. It is impossible to compare proprietary blend products to any other. A proprietary blend is a mixture of the ingredients stated in the blend.

The only thing the proprietary blend product states is the total amount of blend. They don’t state the amount of each ingredient or its activity level. Therefore, you don’t know what the activity level of each enzyme is, and this is the only measurement that is used when the supplier sells to the manufacturer for encapsulating the enzyme. For example, the ingredient supplier of the enzyme can sell 250mg that would equal 25,000 FCC/HUT of protease enzyme, or 250mg that would equal 150,000 FCC/HUT of protease enzyme. In this example there is a 6 time difference in the amount of enzyme strength.


This is how some nutritional companies might mislead their customers in order to increase their profit margin. They may use lower cost ingredients, and formulate a product with weaker/lower activity enzymes and label the product as a proprietary blend or list the ingredients individually in mg. So when considering to buy a product that states a proprietary blend or ingredients listed in mg, ask for a copy of the certificate of analysis that comes from the lab. Don’t let yourself be misled by a company using different terminology. Always know the quality/activity level of each ingredient in the product. Take a look for yourself and see how our product stands up next to others sold nationwide. We don’t mislead our customers.
