How we choose which ingredients to use in our digestive enzyme products
When most companies formulate a digestive enzyme product, they’ll buy all of the ingredients from ONE ingredient supplier. (There are many ingredient suppliers.) Then the ingredients are sent to the manufacturer to be encapsulated and bottled before being shipped to the retail or wholesale company. The problem with this is that all of the enzymes such as protease, amylase, lipase, etc… come from ONE supplier. This supplier may sell for example, the best protease or amylase on the market but not the highest quality lipase or lactase. Therefore, their product may contain a few high quality ingredients but also contain some lower quality ingredients. The reason this is important is because not all enzymes function in the same pH range. For example, the type of protease we use functions in a pH range of 4 to 10, but another companies protease may only function in a pH range of 5 to 8. This is also true with other enzymes such as amylase, lipase…
All of us come across this in our lives on a daily basis. For example, a vehicle manufacturer may produce the best pick-up trucks, but a different vehicle manufacturer may produce the best cars. We recognize this and when formulating our digestive enzymes we search around for the highest quality ingredients. We purchase the best ingredients from SEVERAL different ingredient suppliers and send them to our manufacturer for encapsulation and bottling. This ensures that every ingredient in our product is of the highest quality.
When choosing which ingredient suppliers to use, we have SEVERAL of them send us samples of the highest quality enzymes they sell. Such as protease, amylase, lipase, etc… After determining which enzymes are the highest quality, we formulate our enzyme products. This process leads us to using several different ingredient suppliers instead of only one like most companies. This is how we formulate higher quality digestive enzyme products to offer you.
