How “Pure” Are Your Enzymes?


How pure are your products?  What about allergens?

Enzyme Research Products (the only enzyme product line that we carry at Abundant Health Center, LLC) uses only the highest quality pure pharmaceutical enzymes.  All of the  ingredients in the Enzyme Research formulas are rigorously tested by our encapsulator for heavy metals, pesticides and other contaminants.  This story will give you an idea of the integrity of the owner of Enzyme Research Products – Dr. Lori Halquist – Dr. Lori sent over a new formula to be made up by the encapsulator.  The encapsulator called her and said there was one ingredient for which he could not find a source pure enough that would satisfy him.  That ingredient was left out of the product.

Most of our products do not contain any allergens.  Here are the ones that do:

  • ProdophilusFOS has traces of milk products.  In this case, the probiotics are grown on a dairy-based culture and then centrifuged to separate the culture from the probitotics that go in the bottle.


  • Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM contains shellfish.  Glucosamine is made from shellfish, but there is no evidence that it contains shellfish proteins which are usually responsible for causing allergy symptoms. There is a vegetarian form of glucosamine which has less efficacy. Anyone with a shellfish allergy would want to check with their health care professional.


  • Vitazyme –according to FDA standards the following allergens must be listed, though they are not all an issue as we understand it: wheat, soy, dairy and shellfish. The wheat in the formula is from wheatgrass which does not contain gluten or gliadin and should not cause any problems.  The soy is from the Betatene (vitamin A), the Vitamin E, manganese, molybdenum and selenium.  The Betatene and Vitamin E are allergen exempted because the soy is there at the start of manufacturing, but becomes a non-issue by the end.  The three minerals are chelates which do contain soy. The dairy is used as a carrying agent in the Acerola Extract.  The shellfish is in the glucosamine (see above explanation).


  • NattokinasePlus contains soy. The soy is fermented to grow the enzyme.  The enzyme is separated from the growth medium at the end and should not be a problem.

  2. kevin hogan says:

    how do we know what enzymes need to be added or reduced from a diet?

  3. Jandy Quismundo says:

    So your products are completely natural or are they mixed with chemical too?


  4. How do allergens work? Are they carried in enzymes?

    This is a very important thing for anything that is going into or onto your body especially when the purpose is for health.

    Even cigarette manufacturers used the fresh and pure and clean angles, and tied the product to nature (running streams and rivers, big mountains,…) and cowboys…

    We trust in the manafactures to produce quality products for us to take it is nice to know that there are producers that care and it is not just a money grab.

  7. It’s sad but true, even the “health” products we seek out and ingest in an effort to improve our energy and wellness may have contaminants or less than healthy ingredients. Thanks for pointing us to pure, ethical products we can have confidence in.

  8. Nattokinase is an amazing enzyme! I’m a fan of systemic enzymes to reduce pain and inflammation. Do you carry those at your practice?

    So you are saying that there are other companies that distribute products that contain allergens and contaminates.
    That is scary…


  10. When it comes to health it seems logical that having the purest ingredients is the best possible course. Given the choice, I think every consumer would choose the pure product over one with questionable ingredients.

    The problem is getting the correct information. Thank you for pointing out some poor product choices.

    We were only reading the other day that most of the soy grown in the US is genetically-modified, is nowhere near as good as the “real stuff” you’d get in Asia, say, and, even worse, it contains a ton of female hormones such as oestrogen.

    And this is the stuff that a lot of infant formula is made from these days. We know that if we had kids, we wouldn’t be feeding them anything that contains about a week’s worth of birth control pills in a single day!

    However, we trust that the product you carry is 100% pure, which is good to know.

    It is important for those who suffer from food allergies to be aware of which products may affect them. Thank you for sharing that information.

    I have never used enzimes and don’t really know to much about the subject. But, how would I know if a need to take some?

  14. Hi Gary,

    It sounds like the purity of the enzyme products you carry are simply marvelous for aiding in our health.
