Look and See what Allegany Nutrition has to Offer Compared to other Systemic Enzymes Sold in Stores!
Compare Apples to Apples!
|Allegany Nutrition prices listed are the SUGGESTED retail price that we recommend that the health care practioner sell them for. Listed Below are the main and most important enzymes in each product we believe to be for breaking down Fibrin, Protein, Fats, and Carbohydrates. 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. There is just not enough room, therefore we only list the main ingredients. The products on the bottom half of the chart are proprietary blends and they do not state the amounts of the ingredients in their product. |
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. Updated 8-18-09

How to compare different companies Systemic Enzymes:
Our systemic enzyme formulations are listed in units of activity. The potency of a systemic 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 it is capable of breaking down.
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 the Natto-LP is 180,000 HUT. This means that each capsule has 180,000 units of activity. Using these units of activity to compare different systemic enzymes is crucial. The units of activity in a product are what counts, not the number of milligrams or another measuring system. Whatâ€™s important is the amount of the product is capable of breaking down. When comparing our product with others, and they donâ€™t use the Food Chemical Codex (FCC), itâ€™s almost impossible to compare the two products. So when using other products that donâ€™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 donâ€™t state the amount of each ingredient or its activity level. Therefore, you donâ€™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. Donâ€™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 donâ€™t mislead our customers.
