How Xylose Isomerase will make your life so much better
And here is the best part: Xylose isomerase is an enzyme that converts excess fructose into glucose, as illustrated in the figure below. Glucose can then be absorbed along the entire small intestine with the aid of a specific protein called SGLT-1.
This means that dietary supplements of Xylose Isomerase improve the symptoms of Fructose Malabsorption significantly.
I take that medicine before eating high-fructose meals that would usually lead to nasty consequences, and I am absolutely thrilled by their effect. And with effect, I mean “no more symptoms”!
Please note, that diabetics and people suffering from hereditary fructose intolerance (HFI) should not use it.
In Europe, you can find a drug called FructoZym from Biogena, which contains that enzyme.
If you are living in the US, it is called Eat Anything*.
Some tips for taking Xylose Isomerase
- The enzyme doesn’t withstand temperatures above 140°F. So, do not open the capsules and pour them over hot meals or leave them in your car when it’s hot outside.
- It’s best to take 1-2 capsules together with a glass of water directly before high-fructose meals.
- Please pay attention to the instructions of each medicine.
That’s it! Enjoy your meals!
