You can use our fructase capsules several times a day. We do recommend that you stick to the maximum set number of capsules per day. For fructase this is a maximum of 15 capsules per day.
The recommended dose of fructase is 1-3 capsules. We recommend starting with the highest dose, to see how you react, and then tapering down to a smaller dose next time. You can do this until you can see the minimum dose your body needs to avoid triggering the symptoms of your food intolerance. Of course, what you eat/drink and portion size will matter (as will the severity of your intolerance), but the general rule is that by starting high, you can better tell if the product is helping you or not, rather than not being sure if it was enough. It is certainly helpful to taper the dose and see if you can go to a lower strength next time. Overdosing does not have any negative effect and is therefore not a bad thing. In some cases it is better to be on the safe side in order to avoid unnecessary complaints.
You can use the fructase capsules in all ages. The only thing is young children can't swallow capsules. You can open the capsule and just give the enzyme powder with some drink or spread it over the food.
There are no side effects associated with the use of these capsules. The enzymes in the capsules have only 1 function in the intestines and therefore cannot cause any other side effects or unwanted effects.
Xylose Isomerase catalyzes the reversible isomerization of D-glucose and D-xylose to D-fructose and D-xylulose, respectively. It is widely used in the food industry for the production of the sweetener High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) from corn starch. The enzyme is one of the three highest tonnage value enzymes, amylase and protease being the other two. The enzyme works in your small intestine, In the small intestine the enzyme establishes an equilibrium between fructose and glucose in the food mash. In this way you can absorb the glucose, and the fructose and glucose can be absorbed together through the intestinal wall (1:1 ratio).
