What does the research say?

Lactase is clinically proven to aid lactose digestion. The Europeans Food Safety Authority recommend a dose of 4500 FCC units of lactase with each lactose containing meal. FODZYME confirmed that a single serving of FODZYME meets these requirements.

Alpha-galactosidase shows mixed results for treating symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in clinical trials. However, alpha-galactosidase has been shown to help prevent an increase in symptoms following ingestion of foods specifically high in galacto-oligosaccharides (e.g. legumes) in people with IBS at a dose of 150-300 GALU. FODZYME confirmed that a single serving meets these requirements.

To our knowledge, fructan hydrolase has not yet been studied in human clinical trials.

A lab-based study in a simulated gut model found that FODZYME was able to break down 90% of fructan-type inulin within 30 minutes. However, no human clinical trials of FODZYME have yet been published, to our knowledge.

The Verdict

The enzymes lactase and alpha-galactosidase found in FODZYME could potentially help with symptoms of lactose intolerance and IBS following ingestion of lactose and other FODMAPs.
